Charlie Sheen Goes Crazy, Commits Career Suicide

I suppose, if you’re going to have a complete meltdown, this is the way to do it.

As Two And A Half Men star Charlie Sheen’s erratic behavior escalated today in a series of verbal assaults on the show’s creator-executive producer Chuck Lorre, the sitcom’s network and studio did the only thing they could in the situation: pull the plug.  But they only did it for this season. (Two and a Half Men was scheduled to resume production on Monday for 4 more episodes). So the door is left open for a possible ninth season. “Based on the totality of Charlie Sheen’s statements, conduct and condition, CBS and Warner Bros TV have decided to discontinue production of Two and a Half Men for the remainder of the season,” the two companies said in a statement.

[…]

The production shutdown decision was a dramatic ending to a really fascinating day in which Hollywood witnessed a star’s self-destruction. First, in a bizarre rant on The Alex Jones radio show this morning, Sheen called Lorre a “charlatan” and a “turd” and would only refer to him by his “real name, Chaim Levine.” “Chaim, last time I checked, I spent close to the last decade effortlessly and magically converting your tin cans into pure gold,” said Sheen, responding to a tongue-in-cheek vanity card Lorre recently posted on Men that ended with “If Charlie Sheen outlives me, I’m gonna be really pissed.”

Things escalated in the afternoon when Sheen, currently vacationing in the Bahamas with a girlfriend, ex-wife and a porn star, reached out to TMZ. “I violently hate Chaim Levine,” Sheen said. “He’s a stupid, stupid little man and a p**sy punk that I’d never want to be like. That’s me being polite.”

Lorre is said to be very upset by the insults hurled by Sheen who has had a huge career resurgence with Men and became TV’s highest-paid star making more than $1.2 million an episode. Lorre was integrally involved, along with WBTV and CBS, in the decision not to resume production as planned, which was made in a series of meetings this afternoon precipitated by today’s events. WBTV, which has lucrative syndication deals in place for Two and a Half Men, stands to lose tens of millions of dollars if the series doesn’t continue. But that pales in comparison to the importance of Lorre to the studio. In addition to Two and a Half Men, he is also behind the WBTV’s hit comedy The Big Bang Theory, which landed a massive syndication deal in May, and promising new comedy Mike & Molly.

The BIG money in television is always in the syndication rights, which typically takes place after a show has been on a network for four or five seasons.  Syndication allows networks and production companies to finally profit on all the cash they’ve been plugging into shows, plus it’s naturally cheap to distribute.

It is pre-packaged, pre-produced programs after all.  Just put the tape in and press play.

As for Sheen, I believe this is how it was destined to end.  The guy’s got some severe addiction and anger issues which he clearly has no interest of desire in dealing with, and frankly CBS has given him more than enough rope and leeway with his past actions that eventually they were going to have to say “Enough!” to him.  The network and the Two and a Half Men people were kind enough to help lift his career out of the toilet at the beginning of the series and he ends up doing this to them in a very public fashion.

He frankly gave them no other choice.

His future is going to be a mystery.  Sheen is saying he’s got a $5 million per episode show lined up for HBO, but no one believes him AND, the lawyers at CBS and Two and a Half Men’s production company could sue him long enough to kill any project in the crib if it were in fact true.  There are reports his father — legendary actor Martin Sheen — and the rest of his family have all but given up on him getting “clean” so lord only knows what happens next.

One hopes he looks at the mess he’s created for both his career and his life, but who honestly thinks such introspection exists inside this self-described egomaniac and hedonist?  Here’s hoping he’s not found dead with several hookers and a giant pile of blow in the next couple years.

(Oh, who am I kidding on that last line?  That’s exactly how we’re going to find him.)

Charlie Sheen’s Wife: “He Put a Knife to my Throat”

Hey, I’ve long thought the Sheens were crazy for sometime.

I still can’t think what possessed Martin Sheen to do “Spawn.” But it appears the crazy didn’t fall far from the tree.

DENVER — Charlie Sheen‘s wife told police the actor pinned her on a bed, put a knife to her throat and threatened to kill her in a Christmas Day fight in Aspen that began when she said she wanted a divorce.

An arrest warrant affidavit released yesterday quotes Brooke Mueller Sheen as saying that the actor straddled her on the bed with one hand grasping her neck and the other holding the knife. She said Sheen told her, “You better be in fear. If you tell anybody, I’ll kill you.”

He also warned, “Your mother’s money means nothing. I have ex-police I can hire who know how to get the job done and they won’t leave any trace,” according to the affidavit.

Sheen, 44, who was arrested for suspicion of menacing, assault and criminal mischief charges, denied threatening his wife with a knife or choking her.

Also yesterday, police released the 911 recordings of the woman identifying herself as Brooke. At one point she says, “I thought I was gonna die for one hour.”

TMZ has reported that Sheen’s wife has recanted much of her story and is no longer cooperating with the investigation.

This is the audio of the 911 call, it’s not making Sheen look at all like a good guy.

This is not Sheen’s first incident of violence with a woman.  In the early 90s he reported shot Kelly Preston by accident while the two were dating.  A year after that, she was married to John Travolta.
