Kathy Bates to play Charlie Sheen`s ghost

London: Oscar winning actress Kathy Bates is to play Charlie Sheen`s ghost on the hit TV sitcom `Two And A Half Men`.

The 63-year-old will appear to Jon Cryer`s character Alan as Charlie Harper in a dream sequence on an episode which will air on April 30, reported Contactmusic.

Sheen played Harper until he was fired after a bust-up with producers last year. He was replaced on the show by actor Ashton Kutcher.

The character was killed off when he was hit by a train in Paris and his funeral was held in the premiere of the ninth season.

Bates is famous for her role as Margaret `Molly` Brown in blockbuster `Titanic`.
