Despite what an idiot Charlie Sheen has been, Warner Bros. announced today that they will pay the crew for 4 episodes of Two and a Half Men.
I have to say it makes me feel better about working in this crazy industry to know that even if a lead actor goes off the deep end the network still thinks about the crew members busting their butts to make the show look good.Â I wish they would pay them for all 8 episodes, however, this is better than getting nothing.
CBS announced yesterday that they were discontinuing production for their hit series Two and a Half Men.
“Based on the totality of Charlie Sheenâ€™s statements, conduct and condition, CBS and Warner Bros. Television have decided to discontinue production of â€śTwo and a Half Menâ€ť for the remainder of the season.”
These statements of course were from Charlie Sheen speaking on the The Alex Jones radio show where he attacked Chuck Lorre, the series creator, as well as Alcoholics Anonymous.
After the annoucement was made Charlie Sheen decided that the best course of action was to write an open letter to TMZ:
What does this say about Haim Levine [Chuck Lorre] after he tried to use his words to judge and attempt to degrade me. I gracefully ignored this folly for 177 shows â€¦ I fire back once and this contaminated little maggot can’t handle my power and can’t handle the truth. I wish him nothing but pain in his silly travels especially if they wind up in my octagon.
Clearly I have defeated this earthworm with my words â€” imagine what I would have done with my fire breathing fists. I urge all my beautiful and loyal fans who embraced this show for almost a decade to walk with me side-by-side as we march up the steps of justice to right this unconscionable wrong.
Remember these are my people â€¦ not yoursâ€¦we will continue on togetherâ€¦
I have to say I honestly feel so bad for the rest of the cast and the crew.Â They have all now lost their jobs because of this stupid idiot.Â Good luck Charlie finding any work in Hollywood.
