Charlie Sheen Update: Fired from “Men”

Filed under : Celebrity News

Charlie Sheen has finally been fired from the hit US comedy series which made him a household name and the highest paid TV star in America.

Bosses on “Two and a Half Men” fired Sheen after “careful consideration” of the actor’s long history of wild parties, repeated hospitalizations and finally a bitter public war of words which Sheen sustained against the Warner Bros. studio.

The firing is effective immediately, so unless something changes drastically, there will be no more Charlie Sheen on “Two and a Half Men”. However, good news for the other stars of the show, and its crew, is that no decision has yet been made on the future of the show, so it could continue in another guise.

Actually, Charlie Sheen said the firing was good news for him, too. After passing a series of private and independent recent drugs tests, he feels he has right on his side and is determined to sue studio bosses over his firing.

“They lose – trolls,” Sheen told Associated Press.

Sheen added that he intended to sue “big”. He asserted his right to live as he pleases, including using illegal drugs, without his employers taking action against him, so long as he showed up for work sober and ready to do the business. That carefully side-stepped Warner and CBS’ complaints that Sheen had not done that and that they had been patient with him through rehab and two very messy splits from two wives.

Just last month, Warner cancelled the rest of the series and gave as the reason Sheen’s behaviour and increasingly angry rants aimed at executive producer, Chuck Lorre. In interviews broadcast on nationwide news channels, admitted his “violent hatred” of his studio bosses.

Well, it seems they have had enough and fired Charlie Sheen from his $1.8million per episode job.

Do you think they were right to fire Charlie? What should happen to the show now?

    I feel bad for Charlie, CLEARLY hes has a problem, If warner bros. would have stayed behind him like a good company does when someone is suffering from a medical condition of any kind than maybe he would not have bad mouthed them so much. Besides, you cant replace him, no matter how much someone may seem to come close to playing that character, they are not Charlie. His life on the show goes hand and hand with his real life, which is probably why he was so damn good at playing ….himself!

    We want you back Charlie, start your own show!!! You know EVERYONE will watch it!
