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?
