Charlie Sheen claims he is going to launch a new TV show on HBO following the decision by CBS to halt production on ‘Two and a Half Men’.
The troubled actor – who found out today (25.02.11) the last four episodes of the current season had been cancelled following his recent behaviour and personal attack on the show’s creator Chuck Lorre – says he is in talks to appear in his own 30-minute programme entitled ‘Sheen’s Corner’.
He told RadarOnline.com: “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!”
If the show gets the green light, Charlie would earn a reputed $5 million per episode, however, HBO are yet to validate his claims.
The hellraising star – who has been receiving home rehab treatment for alcohol and drug abuse – has also revealed he intends to show up for work on ‘Two and a Half Men’, despite the decision to halt production by CBS.
In a text message to ABC show ‘Good Morning America’, Charlie – who is currently on vacation in the Bahamas – insisted he is “100 per cent” sober and is planning to head to the set next week.
He also branded the decision to cancel the remaining episodes as “crazy” and “sad”.
CBS made the decision to axe ‘Two and a Half Men’ after Charlie – who has been on hiatus because of his drink and drug problems – gave a radio interview in which he dared them to stop the show and branded Chuck a “turd”.
In a statement, Warner Bros. Television and broadcaster CBS said: “Based on the totality of Charlie Sheen’s statements, conduct and condition, CBS and Warner Bros. Television have decided to discontinue production on ‘Two and a Half Men’ for the remainder of the season.”
Charlie then hit back in an open letter in which he continued to insult Chuck and also referred to his by his Hebrew name – leading to accusations of anti-Semitism.
In the letter, he said: “What does this say about Haim Levine [Chuck Lorre] after he tried to use his words to judge and attempt to degrade me. I gracefully ignored this folly for 177 shows … I fire back once and this contaminated little maggot can’t handle my power and can’t handle the truth. I wish him nothing but pain in his silly travels especially if they wind up in my octagon. Clearly I have defeated this earthworm with my words – imagine what I would have done with my fire breathing fists.”
