Charlie Sheen’s former bosses at CBS are desperately trying to convince him to return to ‘Two and a Half Men’, according to reports.
The 45-year-old actor – who was fired from the sitcom earlier this month for insulting producers and for his general wild drug-fuelled behaviour – is reportedly being pursued by chief staff at the TV network which makes the show because they want him back. Although Charlie is involved in a public feud with programme creator Chuck Lorre – calling him “Chucky Cheeseball” and “s**tbrain” – CBS president and CEO Les Moonves has now intervened.
A source told RadarOnline.com: “Moonves told Chuck Lorre that he should ‘let us handle Charlie’.”
However, getting the series back on track could be difficult as Charlie recently blasted his co-star Jon Cryer in the mistaken belief he has issued a statement against him.
He said: “Like I said, you’re with me, or you’re with the trolls.
“Jon has not called me. He’s a turncoat, a traitor, a troll. Clearly he’s a troll. He issued a statement. Is it gonna take me calling him a ‘traitor, juvenile and scared’ for him to get it?
“What’s there to say? I’ll tell him, ‘You’re a little late. Goodbye, troll.’ When I’m starring in multimillion-dollar films and he’s begging me for a supporting role I’ll say, ‘You left me out in the cold with all of your guilt and stupidity.’ ”
Meanwhile, Charlie reportedly had a meeting with CBS rival FOX recently where a group including Mike Darnell, President of Alternative Entertainment for FOX and Peter Rice, Chairman of Entertainment for FOX Networks Group, discussed possible projects for Charlie, including a late night show.
