Cast and characters

  • Charlie Sheen, as Charles "Charlie" Francis Harper, a hedonistic ladies man, never married, jingle/children's song writer who tends to pick on his brother Alan but ultimately loves him. He is the exact opposite of his little brother: successful and well-off. He likes and gives advice (much of which is not age-appropriate) to Jake but the two often trade barbs as well.
  • Jon Cryer, as Alan Jerome Harper, Charlie's twice divorced chiropractor brother, who is constantly stricken with bad luck and was teased by Charlie as a kid. After losing his house to Judith after the divorce, he is permanently staying with Charlie. He's a generally nice and polite guy who has never had much luck romantically or financially, and seems to have a weakness for women who treat him badly that stems from the non-nurturing relationship he had with his and Charlie's mom.
  • Angus T. Jones, as Jacob David "Jake" Harper, Alan's overweight son. He's lazy, underachieving, and sarcastic. He spends most of his free time playing video games and watching television. Jones does not sing the show's catchy theme song, even though it's a popular belief; in fact, neither do Sheen or Cryer. The female voice that Jones is lip-synching is the singer and voice-over artist Elizabeth Daily.
  • Marin Hinkle, as Judith, Alan's humorless first ex-wife. She despises Alan and takes every chance she gets to humiliate him in front of his girlfriends. It was no secret that she lived a luxurious life on Alan's alimony, going so far as to get a boob job. She has since remarried to Herb Melnick, Jake's pediatrician, a union that brought joy to Alan because it meant he no longer had to pay her alimony.
  • Holland Taylor, as Evelyn Harper, Charlie and Alan's aristocratic and self-centered mother, Jake's grandmother. She isn't very fond of her sons or her grandson, and the feeling's mutual because of her cold, careless, sarcastic style of parenting/grand-parenting. Her wide-ranging sex life is a recurring gag throughout the series. Charlie constantly (indirectly) implies that she is the devil. For example, he has her phone number on speed dial: "666. Cute, huh?"
  • Melanie Lynskey, as their neighbor Rose, a sometime stalker of Charlie. She has a habit of entering and exiting Charlie's house through the patio. She has stated that she has a Masters Degree in psychology. In seasons 1 and 2 she was a starring character, and is a recurring character thereafter. Rose left town for London in Season 4 but has since returned to the U.S. and found new ways to woo/stalk Charlie.
  • Conchata Ferrell, as their sarcastic housekeeper Berta. Throughout the series, hints have been made of her being a lesbian, but nothing has been proven. She has a sister played by Camryn Manheim whom she doesn't get along with. In season 1 she is a recurring character; from then on, she is a starring character.
  • April Bowlby, as Kandi, Alan's young, deeply dimwitted second ex-wife. She is a starring character from season 4 onward; her previous appearances are recurring. She divorced him and got their condo, but they continued to have regular booty calls. When she got a role on a CSI-spoofing show, she signed divorce papers so that Alan wouldn't be able to claim her newfound fortune, and has not been seen on the show since then.

Synopsis

Charlie is a successful and affluent 40 year old bachelor who has a career writing advertisement jingles. Charlie resides in a large oceanfront home in Malibu, California, and is portrayed as a chauvinistic, hedonistic womanizer; all he cares about is having sex. The pilot begins when his wimpy brother Alan becomes divorced from his wife, moves out of their house, and has to move in with his brother. Alan has shared custody of his son Jake (10 when the series began), who stays with him part-time. Though some believe the title is in reference to the fact that Jake is only with Charlie and Alan half the time, it's really referring to the fact that Jake isn't an adult yet, and only "1/2 a man".

Rose (Melanie Lynskey) is Charlie's zany neighbor and female stalker. Rose had a one night stand with Charlie shortly before the show started, which she believed to be more signficant, and tends to enter his house through the patio in the most inopportune moments, expressing her ambition of obtaining Charlie, and often serving as a good, albeit crazy, friend and adviser. Although obviously troubled herself, Rose has stated a few times that she has a Master's degree in psychology. In various episodes it is insinuated that Rose is very slowly orchestrating a psychological plan to win Charlie back. Early in the series after she's become "Scrabble" friends with Alan as a way to get closer to Charlie, she's heard to say (to herself) "Phase one, complete." Melanie Jayne Lynskey (b. ... Stalking means criminally following or similarly harassing a person over an extended period. ... One Night Stand is an HBO Stand-up Series that first aired February 15, 1989. ... Psychological science redirects here. ...


In one episode, Rose's father Harvey (Martin Sheen) asks Charlie of his intentions with his daughter after an apparent second one-night stand between the two. Harvey then meets Charlie's and Alan's mother and has an affair with her, stalking her and popping in just like his daughter does. We then learn from Harvey's mother that "that's what happens when you marry a first cousin," explaining Rose's family's dementia. Martin Sheen (born August 3, 1940) is an Emmy- and Golden Globe Award-winning American actor. ...


Many of the episodes feature Judith misusing her alimony (before she remarried and Alan no longer had to pay her) and child support (she got a breast enlargement in one episode with her alimony). Alimony, maintenance or spousal support is an obligation established by law in many countries that is based on the premise that both spouses have an absolute obligation to support each other during the marriage (or civil union) unless they are legally separated. ...


Another important recurring character is Berta (Conchata Ferrell), Charlie's sarcastic and sharp-tongued housekeeper. She trades insults with Charlie and it's clear the household can't function without her. She usually tolerates Alan as long as he doesn't make excessive demands for particular food products and often refers to him as "Zippy." Berta also enjoys occasionally starting trouble between the brothers by needling each one about the other while she sits back and watches the conflict take place.

Alan and Charlie's mother, Evelyn (Holland Taylor) is a hip, wealthy, early-sixties, many-times-divorced, probably bisexual, promiscuous, controlling mother of the brothers. Both Charlie and Alan attribute their life's problems to the dark manipulative force their mother manages to exert upon them even now, adding to the caustic humor of the show in the situations depicting their vain attempts to escape her. For all of her selfishness and manipulation, Evelyn does love her kids and grandson deep down. Holland Taylor (b. ... In human sexuality, bisexuality describes a man or woman having a sexual orientation to persons of either or both sexes (a man or woman who sexually likes both sexes; people who are sexually and/or romantically attracted to both males and females). ...


Another recurring theme is the conflict of personalities between the two diametrically opposed siblings, the relaxed, good-life, woman-catching, commitment-phobic Charlie and the uptight self-conscious nerdy Alan. Alan can sometimes appear to be jealous of Charlie's lifestyle, and can sometimes try to stop Charlie's decisions. This also provides opportunities for comedy in the show, with Alan, having admitted defeat, making comments such as 'it's like talking to a horny chimp', or 'it's like trying to talk Shakespeare to a Hershey bar'. However, every season has had at least one episode where Charlie and Alan are seriously fighting with each other, although the conflicts are generally resolved by that show's end.

A great deal of the humor on the show comes from the real-life experiences of creator Chuck Lorre. In a now-famous Entertainment Weekly interview, Holland Taylor said that Lorre was using the memories of his own less-than-great relationship with his mother for the storylines involving Evelyn and Charlie/Alan. Charlie Sheen also said that it was "no accident...that Chuck finally decided to do a show about men. I'll leave it at that."
