Looks like "Two and a Half Men" creator Chuck Lorre is getting in one more jab at his former cast member-turned-nemesis Charlie Sheen.

Sheen's character, Charlie Harper -- who was killed off on the season premiere of the CBS hit last fall -- is coming back to the show, albeit in ghost form. And that ghost will be played by "Harry's Law" star Kathy Bates.

Who is female. And nearly 20 years older than Sheen.

Bates will guest-star on the series' April 30 episode, playing Harper's ghost, CBS said Monday. In the episode, Jon Cryer's character Alan Harper suffers a minor heart attack, and is visited by Harper's ghost in the hospital.

After Sheen was bounced from the show after a spree of bizarre behavior and a string of insults hurled at Lorre, his jingle-writing character Charlie Harper suffered an off-screen demise which saw him falling in front of a train in France, with the strong implication being that he was pushed by his new bride Rose, after he was caught by her with another woman.

Sheen was replaced by Ashton Kutcher, who plays heartbroken internet billionaire Walden Schmidt.
