It’s like Big Love, but without all that Mormonism getting in the way of the drugs and alcohol
If you thought Charlie was on a downward spiral before, just wait till you see what kind of tailspin this latest news will set him on! After his most recent radio rant about the producers of Two and a Half Men (co-creator Chuck Lorre, in particular) CBS has canceled the rest of the season of the show and are apparently still deciding whether they want to continue. One one hand it’s the most popular sitcom on TV, and on the other hand it stars an insane alcoholic/drug addict/sexaholic who can’t help himself from being a disastrous media spectacle. So although Two and a Half Men hasn’t officially been canceled altogether, after this latest rift I hardly see the two sides coming together amicably. Charlie’s radio interview was so full of choice quotes about himself and Chuck Lorre that it was tempting just to post a transcript. He refers to Lorre as a “maggot,” claims for years he has turned the “tin cans” Lorre writes into pure gold, and said he embarrassed Lorre in front of his children and the world by recovering from his addictions at a pace that his tony mind couldn’t fathom. Really Charlie? Somehow you don’t sound fully recovered… When it came to that issue, Charlie brushed off his issues, saying the only thing he has ever been addicted to was “winning.” I assume “winning” is some strand of especially potent cocaine.
So what’s next for Charlie if his reign as king of the sitcoms is truly coming to an end? Although Charlie has been making claims that he is already in talks to star in his own HBO series that would pay him a whopping 5 million dollars an episode, some are doubting the legitimacy of the claim. Including HBO, who say they have never spoken with Sheen about any show. Oops! Guess sometimes reality and dreamland kind of blur together after a few party days without sleep, huh Char? At this rate Charlie will end up an unemployable actor with his own VH1 or E! reality show. Which would be awesome! Right now the guy is living in a house with his soon to be ex-wife, their ex-nanny and a random porn star! How is that not a TV show?! It would be like Three’s Company or Full House, but waaaay weirder.
