Charlie Sheen's radio rant costs him TV show, possibly movie deal

on Feb 25, 2011 @ 10:48 am

Charlie Sheen went on a rambling radio rant yesterday, slamming his boss, exec producer Chuck Lorre of "Two and a Half Men" and dissing everyone from Alcoholics Anonymous to Thomas Jefferson (yes, THE Thomas Jefferson).

I heard a snippet on my local radio show today and he was completely off his rocker (though I must admit, strangely fascinating to listen to in a rubbernecking kinda way - remember Mel Gibson?  fess up, you listened to that nonsense too).

Many outlets are now reporting that this has lead to the cancellation of his hit show "Two and a Half Men" and may also endanger an upcoming movie role for Sheen.

I think Sheen will do whatever he wants to do, and good luck to him (I suspect he needs it).  The people I really feel bad for are the several dozen over at Two and a Half Men who'll now be out of a job.

I, for one, won't miss the show.  I stopped watching a long time ago, though I found Angus Jones adorable - especially in the early years.

What do you think?  Inevitable?  Tragic?  Or meh....?

I sort of feel bad for Charlie Sheen -- he's completely lost his marbles. Just when you think he can't go any farther downhill, he does!

It's a real shame that many other people who work for the show, and thought they had a secure job, could be out of work now thanks to his antics!

I'll miss "Two and a Half Men", I'm not a devote fan but it seems to be the perfect compromise show for a lot of couples and groups of people. It was kind of like the new "Friends".

I wonder where the rest of the cast will go... do you have any predictions?

The show was funny.....but no one likes a diva on set. Good riddance.
This is a great example of 'You thought you were untouchable BUT.....'

Or perhaps a cleverly timed breakdown in hopes of a miraculous comeback?

I agree with you Lauren. It was a really good 'compromise' show (as you put it). I thought it was quite funny, but I actually can't stand Charlie Sheen as an actor. I wish they would continue the show without would be a true shame if one man diva would run all these great people out of their jobs.

I agree dolce - I don't love Charlie Sheen, I really like Berta, Alan and Jake. I think the writers could be creative enough to create a spin off show without Charlie. Plus, Jake is almost (I think) old enough to be going to college so this could be the right time to bring the show in another direction.

I guess we'll have to wait and see....
