It’s official: Charlie Sheen’s winning is over. The actor is now FIRED from his role as Charlie Harper on ‘Two and a Half Men‘ due to his dangerously self-destructive conduct, derailing production when entering rehab, firing his sobriety coach, and committing “a felony offense involving moral turpitude” in addition to his recent hijinks, including trashing the Plaza Hotel in NYC, numerous coke binges, on-set failures because of drug fatigue, and diatribes against show creator Chuck Lorre.
Warner Bros. issued the following statement: “After careful consideration, Warner Bros. Television has terminated Charlie Sheen’s services on ‘Two and a Half Men,’ effective immediately.”
Sheen, who has been in the news of late due to his erratic behavior and drug use, was reportedly sent a letter from Warner Bros. on earlier today informing him of his dismissal (Click HERE to read that letter). His firing comes as no surprise following a series of bizarre rambling interviews and attacks on the show and creators. Sheen’s recent antics caused Warner Bros. to suspend production on the show for the remainder of the season, sending Sheen into an angry media campaign against the show’s producers. The show’s spokesman says no decision has been made about the show’s production future, other than the fact that Sheen will not be a part of the series any longer.
Sheen’s laywer, Marty Singer, is demanding that Warner Bros. pay Sheen for the eight cancelled episodes this season, or else. Sheen, however, is seeing the silver-lining and has released his own statement to TMZ:
“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 their bazillions, never have to look at whatshiscock again and I never have to put on those silly shirts for as long as this warlock exists in the terrestrial dimension.”
I must admit I found his antics mildly amusing for a while. Until, that is, his children were involved and eventually removed from his custody. Here is someone who had the world at his feet and he is throwing it all away. Now it’s time for him to get some help. It could be the biggest production of his life – America loves a good comeback story.
