Good luck trying to put a “Winning!” spin on this, Charlie Sheen.

CBS and Warner Bros. Television have jointly announced that they have officially fired Charlie Sheen from Two and a Half Men.

“After careful consideration, Warner Bros. Television has terminated Charlie Sheen’s services on “Two and a Half Men” effective immediately.”

Warner Bros. has fired Charlie Sheen from the hit CBS show "Two and a Half Men."

The move comes after several weeks of very public battling between the actor and CBS, Warner Bros. and "Two and a Half Men" co-creator Chuck Lorre.

In a statement, the studio said, “After careful consideration, Warner Bros. Television has terminated Charlie Sheen’s services on 'Two and a Half Men' effective immediately.”

Production on the show was stopped in late January after top executives from CBS and Warner Bros. confronted Sheen about his private life. Sheen has made no secret of embracing a sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle. Messy divorces, accusations of violence toward women and trips to rehab have been staples of his life for over two decades.

None of his personal life seemed to have any impact on his career. He is the highest paid actor in television, with a salary that reaches $2 million per episode when his portion of rerun money is included. Although production was also shut down last year because of Sheen's personal issues, CBS and Warner Bros. never publicly came out against that star.

That all changed last month when Sheen suddenly became very critical of Lorre, Warner Bros. and CBS. He made fun of Lorre, and CBS and Warner Bros. announced they were suspending production of the show for the rest of the season.

Sheen then retained Hollywood lawyer Marty Singer, who threatened to sue Warner Bros. if Sheen was not paid for the rest of his contract, which runs through next season.

Warner Bros. and CBS did not say if they would try to keep the show alive without Sheen. The deal CBS has for the program runs through next season and costs about $4 million per episode.

It had been a wonderful evening and what I needed now, to give it the perfect ending, was a little of the Ludwig Van.

It's about freakin time. That douche deserved to get fired. I'm just surprised it took them this long to finally do it.

GET EM STEPH!!

This was necessary.

I doubt they will end the show. I've already read they were auditioning replacements last week so it will be interesting to see where they go from here.

Thank God! It was disgusting that there was ever a chance that he would continue on with the show in the condition he's in.

Two and Half Men is my favorite show but lately, I haven't been laughing as much. I agree Charlie needs help but I don't know if the show will survive without him.

They could always kill his character off by saying he died while doing the deed with some woman.... :laugh:

They should tie up loose ends in the current stories but then it's best to cancel it. Two and a half Men is about Charlie, Alan and Jake. I don't want it to continue without Charlie. I don't want it to die slowly like so many other shows do.

He's lost his mind,now he's lashing out at his former co-star.

http://tv.msn.com/tv/article.aspx?news=634388&GT1=28103


Charlie Sheen has turned his fire-breathing fists -- or at least his acid tongue -- toward Jon Cryer.

The newly unemployed "Two and a Half Men" star reached out to E! Online on Tuesday to lambaste his former co-star, calling Cryer a variety of unflattering names that start with "T."

Calling by phone from his home, AKA "Sober Valley Lodge," Sheen fumed that Cryer had not shown him any support during his very public feud with "Men" creator Chuck Lorre and subsequent firing. Sheen said, "Jon has not called me. He's a turncoat, a traitor, a troll. Clearly he's a troll. He issued a statement. Is it gonna take me calling him a 'traitor, juvenile and scared' for him to get it?"

For the record, Cryer has not issued a statement on Sheen's war of words with Lorre -- a Twitter statement from someone claiming to be Cryer and declaring himself "shocked" by the whole Sheen situation turned out to be bogus.

Alas, it appears that Cyrer has permanently severed ties with Sheen with his lack of sympathy and nonexistent statements. Asked about a possible reconciliation should Cryer reach out to him, Sheen said, "What's there to say? I'll tell him 'You're a little late. Goodbye, troll.' When I'm starring in multimillion-dollar films and he's begging me for a supporting role I'll say, 'You left me out in the cold with all of your guilt and stupidity.' "

Why on earth would Cryer support the person who's been putting his job in jeopardy?

So stupid.

Charlie Sheen filed a $100 million lawsuit against Chuck Lorre and Warner Bros. in Los Angeles Superior Court Thursday.

He's also suing on behalf of the Two and a Half Men cast and crew, and asking for punitive damages.

"Chuck Lorre, one of the richest men in television who is worth hundreds of millions of dollars, believes himself to be so wealthy and powerful that he can unilaterally decide to take money away from the dedicated cast and crew of the popular television series, Two and a Half Men, in order to serve his own ego and self-interest, and make the star of the Series the scapegoat for Lorre's own conduct," writes his lawyer, Marty Singer.

Singer blames the cancelation of the remaining eight episodes of this season on, "Warner Bros. capitulating to Lorre's egotistical desire to punish Mr. Sheen...." and having nothing to do with Sheen's controversial comments about Lorre. The suit alleges that Lorre wanted to quit the show so he could work on his other series, Big Bang Theory and Mike & Molly.

Singer also says they fired Sheen when he was sick, which is a violation of state and federal law.

The lawsuit points out that Warner Bros. renegotiated Sheen's contract when he was facing felony charges for allegedly assaulting his ex wife Brooke Mueller -- which pokes holes in Warner Bros' allegation that he violated his contract's "moral turpitude" clause, which the studio cited to abruptly terminate Sheen’s services in a a bombshell 11-page letter messengered to Singer's office on March 7. (The letter pre-emptively initiated an arbitration proceeding against him.)

The star’s “dangerously self-destructive behavior” -- including the “disturbing rampage” at the Plaza Hotel in New York, the “banging 7-gram rocks” of cocaine and the all-night parties with porn-star “goddesses” that caused him to have “difficulty remembering his lines and hitting his marks”-- rendered Sheen incapable of working on the show, Warners said, and, thereby, in default on his contract.

Within minutes of its delivery, the letter had been leaked to the website TMZ, owned by WB parent Time Warner, and Singer promised to file his own lawsuit against Warners and Lorre, as the current issue of The Hollywood Reporter reports.

Warner Bros. litigator John Spiegel, in his first interview since taking on the case with partner Ron Olson, told THR earlier this week, “This is not about Chuck Lorre. It’s about a serious health issue that has rendered Charlie Sheen unable to perform the essential duties of his position.”

Lorre has signed his own lawyer, Howard Weitzman, a veteran of Hollywood disputes. Asked about Singer’s position, Weitzman tells THR, “That’s not a ‘winning’ argument.

“The conspiracy theory is a pure fantasy,” he continues. “Chuck is very concerned for Charlie’s health. We all believe Warner Bros. did the right thing given the situation Mr. Sheen created.”

Sheen is, IMO, the worst part of the show. I feel bad for everyone who had to work with him, and could now lose their jobs.

I have no sympathy for a person who has a obvious problem but does nothing to correct it or even work on it.
