Charlie Sheen is suing Warner Bros. for $100 million, claiming he was wrongfully fired from Two and a Half Men. Forget the fact that Sheen went crazy, started snorting suitcases full of coke and production had to be stalled because of his behavior, costing the studios what was probably the equivalent to millions of dollars, Sheen still believes he can win in a court of public opinion.
Actually Charlie thinks he can win in an actual court of legal fact, announcing on Wednesday that he wants his day in court with the studio, rather than going through legal closed-door arbitration.
Sheen says arbitration won’t work since many of the judges in the area do business with Warner Bros, providing them with an unfair advantage.

Charlie Sheen is an idiot. First he does enough coke to kill a village, then he tarnishes his own image by creating a home haven of porn stars, then he has the gull to actually sue CBS, Warner Bros. and Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre for $100 million, claiming wrongful termination after he had to abandon the show to undergo rehab treatments.
On March 7 Warner Bros. issued a statement about Sheen’s firing:
“After careful consideration, Warner Bros. Television has terminated Charlie Sheen’s services on ‘Two and a Half Men’ effective immediately.”
To which Sheen responded with:
“This is very good news. They continue to be in breach, like so many whales. It is a big day of gladness at the Sober Valley Lodge because now I can take all of the bazillions, never have to look at whatshis[expletive] again and I never have to put on those silly shirts for as long as this warlock exists in the terrestrial dimension.
In his lawsuit Sheen is stating that since he wasn’t fired through all his other transgressions in the past, the studio had no reason to fire him this time around.

Charlie Sheen is ready to spill the beans on his entire sting on Two And A Half Men and if you’re a book publisher the rights to his tell-all can possibly be yours with a starting bid of $10 million.
That is the rumored price of the Sheen book which has yet to be written tell all about the actors 8 seasons on the hit CBS show in which he says he’ll name names including co-stars.
The bloated title? When The Laughter Stopped.

Charlie Sheen once again today railed against the show that has made him millions of dollars. Sheen phoned into Fox Sports Radio with Pat O’Brien where he called the shows staff “knuckleheads” while saying that he couldn’t go back to working on the show if “the turds that are currently in place” were still working there.
Sheen says that during his entire 8 season run on the show he felt like “an unwanted relative being given cold coffee at 9pm every night.”
Sheen also announced that he thinks the show is done for good now that studio executives have shut down production for the rest of the season, he then stated:

Hookers, domestic battery, drunken hotel binges with fits of anger, it should come as a surprise that CBS execs are said to be at a “high level of concern” over the recent troubles caused by Charlie Sheen.
The Two And A Half Men star has been making headlines since he threatened to kill his then wife Brooke Mueller during Christmas day 2009 at their Aspen, Colorado home. Sheen then spent parts of 2010 in rehab, while police were called to his hotel room in late 2010 where he was found passed out drunk and naked with hooker/pornstar Capri Anderson hiding in his suites closet, an encounter that later led to charges being filed against Sheen.
Sheen is currently the second highest paid actor on TV and a crucial part of his hit TV show. At one point Sheen’s antics were brushed out of the spotlight, as hookers and boozing fit his characters persona, however President of Entertainment for CBS Nini Tassler decided to answer questions at this weeks Television Critics Association Winter 2011 Session.

CBS only has a couple of days before they announce their fall 2010 TV lineup, and the negotiations to bring back Charlie Sheen as Charlie Harper in one of the raunchiest comedies, Two and a Half Men, are still ongoing. Sheen apparently is now asking for $2M-plus, which is a lot more than the rumored $1.5M he asked for previously, and of course significantly more than $825K he currently makes. And depending on the day of the week it is, Sheen appears indifferent about whether he comes back or not.
The show will be on CBS for at least a couple more years, and while all the characters are strong, Sheen plays an important part of it. But since his character’s wife has left, it wouldn’t be hard to write him out of the show for a while — maybe put him on a quest for his wife. That’d give Jon Cryer’s character Alan Harper some breathing room, out of his brother’s shadow.
If Sheen is written out of the show, even temporarily, I want to see Melanie Lynskey’s sweet but goofy character Rose come back. What’s more, Alan’s son Jake isn’t the “half man” anymore, into his mid-teens now. Angus T. Jones, who plays the dumbass Jake, is the highest paid kid on TV, reportedly pulling in $250K per episode. There’s room for a spin-off show for him in a couple of years, possibly in a college setting. (However, Jones’ has said he is interested in college and isn’t sure he wants to continue acting.)
The deal will be settled by tomorrow morning. I guess if it doesn’t go through, Sheen has better things to do. Like staying out of jail and paying over $125K/month in support to two wives, past and present.

If you’ve watched Charlie Sheen in the raunchy, Emmy-nominated hit comedy Two and a Half Men, you might think he’s a pretty lucky guy kissing all those hot young females, though his real life situation isn’t all that rosy.
Sheen and Brooke Mueller either are or are not in a divorce settlement, depending on whom you believe, but he’s paying her $55K/month as part of their prenup agreement. Sheen and Mueller have two children. Sheen also has two children with his previous wife Denise Richards, to whom he just surrendered custody of their kids. Richards gets $50K/month in support and “extras”.
So that’s three wives, four kids and at least $125K/month in support and prenup settlements, not to mention accusations by Mueller that Sheen put a knife to her throat late last year and threatened to kill her. (See video below.) Sheen apparently recently chose not to return to Two and a Half Men after the end of this 8th season, though some people think that that may change.
