Sheen Sue CBS. Charlie Sheen says he will sue CBS and Warner Bros. for breach of contract after his show was suspended. The “Two and a Half Men” actor is now jobless after a series of alleged alcohol and drug parties.
The series, “Two and a Half Men,” was cancelled back in January after star Sheen threw a wild drug-filled party that landed him in the hospital. He entered rehab and recently claimed to be sober.
Production of “Men” was originally scheduled to start back up again today until Sheen publicly attacked the show’s creator and the network. In response, CBS and Warner Bros. decided to shut the show down for the rest of the season.
In addition to the lawsuit, Sheen wants full compensation for the show’s yet-to-be-filmed ninth season. He was raking in $2 million an episode on “Men” before the mess, making him the highest paid actor on television. Once the show starts up again, Sheen is not only expecting a million-dollar raise, but for CBS to “apologize while licking his feet,” as reported to NBC.
It doesn’t sound like Sheen will go down easy. He told ABC, “I’m gonna sue for what I’m worth and what I deserve and what they think they can take from me. They can’t.”
Good luck with that one.
