The ‘troubled’ star phoned Los Angeles radio station K-Earth to tell them he approved of rumours CBS are lining up Rob Lowe to fill his shoes.
He explained: “He’s a buddy of mine, he’s a beautiful man, a brilliant actor, and I hope he does it and kicks its ass because I still get [paid].”
The actor-turned-circus-performer has also been pondering how writers would introduce a new actor to the show, which has been suspended ever since Charlie launched in to a bizarre rant at its creator Chuck Lorre.
He told radio host Dan Patrick during another interview: “I don’t know if they would call the [character] ‘Charlie’ anymore… How does the show transition?
“Do you have Chuck [Lorre], that silly sad troll, do you have him talk in the camera and say, ‘Here’s what happened’ and then Rob Lowe comes out?
“Or do they just do it, without explaining it, and hope no one notices?”
Meanwhile, Charlie revealed during another interview that he has finally realised what the rest of the world has been thinking for the past few weeks.
The Twitter sensation told US magazine Life and Style: “I’m really starting to lose my mind.
“I’m ready to call anyone for help.”
