Now that Charlie Sheen is officially fired from his gig as Charlie Harper on Two and a Half Men, producers must decide if they're going to shut down the show completely, or if they can find some creative way of moving forward.

We're voting for a forward march, not least because Jack and Janet did Three's Company for years without Chrissy. (We just need to find Two and a Half Men for Priscilla Barnes!)

So whose names are being dropped as Sheen replacements in the press? Who's your pick for a quality contender for a Men reboot?

We've got some ideas below--Will Arnett has already perfected a self-involved blowhard schtick, and we just want him back on our TVs--but there are some other contenders being discussed:

Rob Lowe, who's currently a regular on NBC's Parks &Recreation, is under consideration according to TMZ.com. Sheen told the K-Earth 101 radio station in Los Angeles that "[Lowe]'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]." Our own Marc Malkin reports that John Stamos, now guesting on Glee as dentist Carl, is being discussed at the highest levels. And no one can resist suggesting that Sheen family members Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez come aboard, even though (a) they've both appeared on the show in other roles before, and (b) they probably wouldn't betray their own family member like that--but who knows?

Which of these contenders and trial balloons intrigues you the most? Should they try something funky like a Seth Green or a Russell Brand, or go traditional with some kind of semi-sexy standup comic type?
