Charlie Sheen’s $2 million paydays are over — at least for the time being.
Yesterday, CBS announced it’s decision to shut down production of the wildly popular TV sitcom ‘Two and a Half Men‘. The shut down will severely impact the wallets of the production crew who haven’t received a paycheck in weeks due to Sheen’s erratic behavior and attention-seeking antics in public.
The news reached Sheen while he was vacationing in the Bahamas with his girlfriend and others. Sheen has held up production of the show for weeks, angering the cast and crew. This is what happens when Hollywood elevates unstable narcissists to god-like status.
Charlie Sheen is not taking the news of Warner Bros. and CBS’s decision to suspend production of ‘Two and a Half Men’ too well.
In a message to RadarOnline.com, Sheen called the decision “crazy” and “sad” and said that he was moving to HBO to do his own half-hour show titled ‘Sheen’s Corner.’ The deal would reportedly get him $5 million for an episode.
Sheen is already the highest paid actor on TV earning $2 million for each episode of ‘Two and a Half Men.’
Sheen reportedly said, “I’m close to securing a deal with HBO for a 10 show guarantee. It will be epic, all types of guests, and we will focus on the truth and the absurd!” Radar notes that HBO could not be contacted for comment.
Radar is also reporting that Sheen accepted a challenge to prove that he is clean and sober by agreeing to undergo a drug test on Monday. Sheen said, “I’m so confident where I am at and that these faceless names can’t touch me … I know that I will pass the test and prove my detractors wrong.”
