Charlie Sheen says Ashton Kutcher saved his career by taking his place on the sitcom "Two And A Half Men."

Sheen told TMZ he wouldn't have been able to jump-start his career had Kutcher not replaced him.

According to Sheen, a planned funeral for his character on the show only adds closure to the story.

“I have always been told that I have nine lives, so it is going to be amazing to witness my own funeral, which is clearly a win/win situation because Ashton has just given me a 10th (life)," he told TMZ.

Sheen recently announced a new TV project based on the movie "Anger Management."
