Charlie Sheen Says 'Two and a Half Men" Return Possible.

He had a massive, very public fight with "Two and a Half Men" creator Chuck Lorre that had led to his ousting from the show, but Charlie Sheen said his return to the U.S. sitcom is still possible.

In 2011, Sheen fired off a verbal attack against Lorre during a radio interview. This prompted the series co-creator lash back with not-so-subtle remarks on Sheen's lifestyle during the show's end credit in one episode. After Sheen continued to criticise Lorre and the show's network CBS, he was fired from the show, with CBS and Warner Bros Television citing "moral turpitude" as the main reason of his termination.

The show is now set to launch its final season, and Sheen has claimed that he might be a part of the send-off.

Speaking with ( TV Guide , the 49-year-old actor revealed that he has approached the show with an idea on how he could return to the series. The show has apparently reached out, and they are now trying to figure out how to make his return believable.

"I've reached out to them and they've reached back," he said. "We're trying to figure out what makes the most sense. If they figure it out like I've presented it to them and they want to include me in some final send-off, I'm available and I'm showing up early. If not, it's on them."

In the show, his character Charlie Harper died in the ninth season premiere after Sheen was fired from the show. Ashton Kutcher then replaced him, playing a different character.

As for his damaged relationship with Lorre, Sheen was vague in explaining their current status.

"Ethereally we have, personally we have not," he said of their reconciliation. "But I'm easy to grab. He was doing his job, I was doing mine. At the end of the day, the guy's a genius. Look at what he does. I don't have to spend time with him anymore for him to be brilliant. I wish him nothing but the best."

Just so he is clear, he added, "On the record, I would love to [return]."

While Sheen is open to reconciliation and his possible return to the show, insiders told TV Guide not to count on him. Apparently, the show did not reach back to him.

"According to plenty of insiders, this isn't going to happen," the Michael Schneider wrote on the Web site.

CBS Entertainment president Nina Tassler also told reporters that there were no discussions about Sheen's comeback on the show.

Sheen's own cable sitcom "Anger Management" is also nearing its 100-episode order.

"If it continues, awesome. I'm available. Best job I ever had. If it doesn't? I gave them all I had. Best education I ever had. Best friends I ever made. Best group of people I've ever worked with."
