Charlie Sheen's role on "Two and a Half Men" is going to be rehashed by Kathy Bates. Maybe Charlie Sheen wasn't the problem after all.

Charlie Sheen’s character, Charlie Harper, on the hit show “Two and a Half Men” will be reappearing soon! Only this time, the role will be filled by Kathy Bates.
From Access Hollywood:
It’s getting spooky (and surprising!) on “Two And A Half Men,” as the character of Charlie Harper – formerly played by Charlie Sheen – returns.
The most surprising part of the character’s return is that Kathy Bates will be playing him!
CBS announced that the character – who was killed off on the season premiere – returns after Alan Harper (Jon Cyrer) suffers a minor heart attack and is visited by Harper’s ghost in the hospital.
Bates, who is obviously female and almost 20 years older than Sheen – who is currently working on his own new show, “Anger Management” — will appear on the April 30 episode of the CBS comedy.
