Things have taken a turn for the worse for Charlie Sheen, who has been fired from his CBS sitcom “Two and a Half Men,” according to a statement from Warner Bros. on Monday (March 7).
“After careful consideration, Warner Bros. Television has terminated Charlie Sheen’s services on ’Two and a Half Men’ effective immediately,” the statement reads.
As for whether the comedy series will continue its run, a CBS spokesperson told CNN, “No decision has been made.”
Despite the termination, the 45-year-old actor seems to be coping well with the announcement, even deeming it “very good news.” In a reaction statement to TMZ, Sheen said, “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 their bazillions, never have to look at whatshisc–k again and I never have to put on those silly shirts for as long as this warlock exists in the terrestrial dimension.”
News of the star’s termination isn’t too surprising as the actor and “Two and a Half Man” creator Chuck Lorre haven’t exactly seen eye to eye in recent weeks. Production for the hit comedy series was discontinued for the remainder of the season after Sheen called Lorre “a clown” during a syndicated radio program. Like his recent rebuttal, TV’s highest-paid actor wanted the last word, so he turned to TMZ to continue to bash the producer in an open letter.
“What does this say about Haim Levine [the name he claims is Chuck Lorre’s real name] after he tried to use his words to judge and attempt to degrade me. I gracefully ignored this folly for 177 shows. … I fire back once and this contaminated little maggot can’t handle my power and can’t handle the truth,” he wrote.
