The actor responds by calling this “good news” and continues to insult Chuck Lorre
Production on Two and a Half Men has been halted for this season due to Charlie Sheen‘s antics, but now CBS and Warner Bros. Television have announced they are terminating his employment. In true Charlie fashion, the actor provides a response on why this is “good news.”
“After careful consideration, Warner Bros. Television has terminated Charlie Sheen’s services on Two and a Half Men effective immediately,” the networks announced via an official statement.
Charlie released a statement to TMZ in response: “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 whatshisc*ck again and I never have to put on those silly shirts for as long as this warlock exists in the terrestrial dimension.” His costar Jon Cryer‘s rep said he had “no comment” about the big change.
Interestingly enough, Charlie’s contract with CBS didn’t have a moral clause attached to it that would allow him to be fired. The New York Times reports, “The show’s success had provided him with the leverage he needed to keep any such clause out.”
Charlie has been taking the media world by storm with his new Twitter account and interviews about his goddesses. He said he’d stay out of the public eye once things got serious and he temporarily lost custody of his children to Brooke Mueller in a restraining order, but he doesn’t seem to be slowing down. In fact, the actor just posted an ad for a new social media intern. It asks for “a hard-working, self-motivated, creative, resourceful and social media savvy individual to work closely with Charlie Sheen in leveraging his social network.”
Additionally, Mark Cuban has hired Charlie to assist with programming on HDNet according to ESPN. “We’re trying to decide,” Mark said. “Right now, we’re taping a lot of different things that he’s doing and we’ll try to figure it out. We’ll do something together, but it’s not certain it will be a show. It’ll come down to what he wants to do and what his situation is.
Do you think Charlie should be taking his situation more seriously? Are you upset about losing him on the show? Who do you think should replace him? Would you be interested in a reality show about his life? Let us know in your comments!
