In an upcoming episode of the highly-rated comedy, Kathy Bates will guest star as the ghost of Sheen's character Charlie Harper. Bates, as Harper, returns from Hell to visit Alan ( Jon Cryer) in the hospital after he suffers a heart attack.

This mark the second time that Alan's been hospitalized this season. Early on, he had a complete breakdown and ended up alongside Gary Busey in a mental institution.

Bates is probably best known for her Oscar-winning performance in "Misery." She currently stars in the NBC legal drama "Harry's Law."

The episode is slated to air on April 30.
