Charlie Sheen was given the heave-ho from “Two and a Half Men” in March just days after calling the show’s co-creator Chuck Lorre
a “maggot” and a “stupid, stupid little man” among other pleasantries.
With the start of the new season less than two months away, it’s
Lorre’s chance to get even with his former employee — and it appears
oddsmakers are looking forward to it too.
Paddy Power, Ireland’s biggest bookmaker, has set the line on
how they think Charlie Harper will be written off
the show. The odds-on favorite has Charlie driving his car off a cliff,
delivering an almost even-money payoff of 11:10. The possible
calamity offers more than just a wink and a nod to Sheen’s 2010
automotive troubles, when not one, but two, of his cars were stolen and
then driven off Mulholland Drive in the Hollywood Hills. The long shot,
paying 250:1, has Charlie eloping with Berta, the sassy housekeeper.
However, that seems like a really bad bet, considering Conchata Ferrell is still a series regular.
Following is a full listing of the odds from Paddy Power:
Drives his car off a cliff – 11:10
Leaves via airport with Rose (Melanie Lynskey) – 5:4
Gets shot in a crime of passion – 3:1
By accidental poisoning – 6:1
Plane crash – 12:1
Gets hit by lightning – 14:1
Surfing accident – 20:1
Jail sentence – 25:1
Joins a monastery – 50:1
Taken into the Witness Protection Program – 50:1
Gets lost at sea – 66:1
A piano falls on him – 200:1
Elopes with Berta – 250:1
