Before Charlie Sheen was fired from playing the role of Charlie Harper on Two and a Half Men, actor Jerry O’Connell spoofed Sheen’s quirky sayings and mannerisms of late in a spoof for the comedy website Funny Or Die, where he “auditioned” for the soon-to-be-open role.
But now, even O’Connell is saying that the situation revolving around the actor isn’t one to be parodied or joked about.
“We did all that stuff last week when it was funny,” O’Connell told George Lopez on Lopez Tonight Wednesday. “This week, it’s not so funny anymore.”
“I feel bad,” he said, noting that Sheen’s aura has transitioned from the funny uncle everyone gravitates to, to that weird uncle everyone stays away from.
Lopez Tonight airs on TBS weeknights at 12/11c.
