The first, Harry Luther Gorsky, left Charlie's and Alan's mother for a young woman (Charlie refers to Harry as "a little tyrant"), and Evelyn was also present at his funeral, the second was a twitchy gay man from Texas who called him and Alan "buckaroos", and the third was "the Carpet King", a fat guy whom Charlie liked the most because he had "a grateful daughter".
Well into his 40s, Charlie believed "the Carpet King" owned a carpeting business until his mother explained that the man's name was actually sexual slang rather than his profession.
The character of Charlie Harper is loosely based on its actor Charlie Sheen.
Charlie prides himself on his bachelor/playboy lifestyle in Malibu, L.
Charlie has dependably had a stressed association with Alan, and would go to all expenses to escape being a decent enormous sibling to him.
As a child, Charlie would spook his sibling by giving him wedgies and ridiculing him at school.
Interestingly enough, Evelyn, even after multiple marriages, still keeps her first husband's name (Harper) rather than her maiden name (which is never mentioned).
Charles Francis "Charlie" Harper is a fictional character in the CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men during the first eight seasons of the series.
Played by actor Charlie Sheen, the character has garnered him four Primetime Emmy Award nominations for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series and two Golden Globe nominations for Best Performance by an Actor in a Comedy Series.
Although the character was written off after the end of the eighth season, the character was reprised for one episode of the ninth season by Kathy Bates, which resulted in her winning the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series and in the series finale, "Of Course He's Dead".
After being expelled from Juilliard School, Charlie moved back to Los Angeles with the intention of becoming a film composer.
As a child, Charlie once put a toy in Alan's pocket to shop-lift, and when they got, he influenced Alan to assume the fault.
