‘Two and A Half Men’ star Charlie Sheen has fired off more venom at the show’s creator Chuck Lorre calling him “a clown’ and ‘a turd”.
Following his explosive radio interview on Thursday that lead to the immediate cancellation of this season of ‘Two and a Half Men” Sheen has continued to verbally attack Lorre.
In a statement yesterday he said, “I fire back once and this contaminated little maggot can’t handle my power. I wish him nothing but pain. Clearly I have defeated this earthworm with my words. Imagine what I would have done with my fire-breathing fists”.
CBS rival ABC will air an interview with Sheen on Monday and Tuesday. In it, Sheen rejects criticism that he was anti-Semitic in referring to Chuck Lorre by his Hebrew name Chaim Levine. “I was referring to Chuck by his real name because I wanted to address the man, not the fucking TV persona,” he said. “So you’re telling me anytime someone calls me Carlos Estevez I can claim they are anti-Latino?”.
Sheen’s real name is Carlos Estevez. He is the son of Martin Sheen, real name Ramon Estevez.
200 people suddenly lost their jobs after the last four shows of the season were axed although the actors are all on contract and will be paid.
So will ‘Two and a Half Men’ return for another season? The wording of the statement by CBS suggests that the show has not been axed, only the remaining shows of this season.
“Based on the totality of Charlie Sheen’s statements, conduct and condition, CBS and Warner Bros. have decided to discontinue production of ‘Two and a Half Men’ for the remainder of the season.” That certainly leaves it open for the show to return at a later date.
Sheen isn’t hanging around to find out. He is already in talks with HBO for his own show ‘Sheen’s Quarter’. It is estimated to be worth $5m an episode to Sheen.
Sheen has now left the USA and is vacationing on a private island in the Bahamas with his ex-wife and a prostitute.
Chuck Lorre is also a producer of the new hit TV series 'Mike and Molly.
