Radar is reporting that there is bidding war for Charlie Sheen’s crazy cokehead shenanigans.
I have a hard time believing that anyone is making it rain cash for someone whose name is the punch line of 73% of pornstar/coke-fiend/hooker jokes and induces a boo riots from people who willingly live in Detroit. (I kid, it is a fine city responsible for its contribution to the automotive industry and Stroh’s.) However, the blog is adamant that TBS wants sign Charlie for a new comedy similar to ‘Two and a Half Men,’ but “a lot racier.”
Their insider insists that Sheen has already committed to 10 episodes under Lionsgate with the option to pick up and produce 90 more. Should the show be successful, he would stand to make enough money to him well stocked on coke, goddess-ho-tricks and fedora hats.
Alas, EW got a hold of a rep for TBS. The network flat out denied any negotiations with Sheen and stated, “TBS is not in discussions for a possible project with Charlie Sheen.” Lionsgate also refused to comment on the rumor.
This is all reminiscent of his alleged book deal, return to ‘Two and a Half Men,’ HBO special and new sitcom due to hit a “major network” in January 2012. All of those alleged deals died quietly or were flat out denied by reps. *SPOILER ALERT* In fact, CBS and Chuck Lorre are taking steps to make sure Charlie can’t return to ‘Two and a Half Men.’ His character is being killed off according to TMZ. Currently, the show is entertaining the idea of having Sheen’s character drive over a cliff in a nod to several of his cars throwing themselves of a cliff on Mulholland Drive.
I am sure Ashton Kutcher will then help the entire show to follow him down that cliff.
