Thesp expected to return next week

Charlie Sheen is expected to return next week to the set of CBS’ “Two and a Half Men.”

Sheen’s rep, Stan Rosenfield, said the actor is planning to be back at work Tuesday. He’ll miss a Monday table read, as Sheen is scheduled in an Aspen, Colo., court that day on domestic abuse charges.

Production on “Two and a Half Men” was put on hold Feb. 23, as Sheen checked himself into a rehabilitation clinic for what was called a “preventative measure.” But the thesp is expected to exit that clinic shortly.

Warner Bros. TV had no comment on the word from Sheen’s camp, as studio execs likely want to wait until the thesp returns to work before confirming. “Men” has shot 18 of its 24 episodes this season.

Sheen was arrested Christmas Day on suspicion of threatening his wife, Brooke Mueller, with a knife. Thesp is facing a domestic violence charge in the case. He will formally enter his plea March 15.
