Dick Van Dyke turned down a guest appearance on Two and A Half Men because the show was “too raunchy,” a source close to the situation tells RumorFix exclusively.
On Thursday’s episode Carl Reiner plays a wealthy man who proposed to Holland Taylor. So the characters played by Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer throw him a surprise bachelor party with comedy icons Tim Conway, Steve Lawrence and Garry Marshall.
Van Dyke, 88, was supposed to join the guest stars, but our insider says, “He didn’t like the script — there were too many penis jokes.”
The producers tried so hard to get Van Dyke that they gave all the naughty jokes to the other men. Dick, who starred in Mary Poppins and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, still turned it down not wanting to tarnish his squeaky clean image.
