"Two and a Half Men" Casts Kathy Bates to Play the Ghost of Charlie Sheen's Character

For anyone hoping that one day Chuck Lorre and Charlie Sheen could set aside their differences and Sheen could return to Two and a Half Men, we've got some bad news for the one or two of you out there: Not gonna happen, ever. Series creator Lorre has taken to recasting Sheen's former character, Charlie Harper, for an upcoming episode where he will appear as a ghost, and the role has gone to none other than Academy Award-winner Kathy Bates.

Bates will appear in an April 30th episode as Harper, who appears to Jon Cryer's character as a ghost. In the series, Harper was killed after being hit by a train in France - apparently, the impact left him looking like Bates. 

Do you guys see a likeness between Sheen and Bates?
