The Ashton Kutcher promos for “Two and a Half Men” are out. Male nudity is being used to advertise a TV show? Feminism wins! Also, do you think Jon Cryer is making that face because someone’s got a case of crabs? [Entertainment Weekly] Keep reading »
According to a recent report on TMZ.com, sources close to hit CBS sitcom “Two And A Half Men” are saying that Charlie Sheen’s character on the show, Charlie Harper, will be written off in a way that will keep Sheen from ever returning to the show: he’ll be killed off.
Ashton Kutcher recently signed on to replace Charlie on the show, which resumes filming in August after over six months of being on hiatus since the Sheen walked out and was subsequently fired from the show after he flipped his lid and began “winning,” “warlocking,” “banging seven-gram rocks” and setting his home up as a refuge for porn stars.
But will Charlie’s demise on “Men” be the last we hear from him? Not so, according to recent rumors. Word is, Charlie’s reportedly in talks with TBS to bring a very similar character to the “very funny” network. TBS denies the reports though. Read more… Keep reading »
“Ashton Kutcher is a sweetheart and a brilliant comedic performer. Oh wait, so am I!! Enjoy the show America, Enjoy seeing 2.0 in the demo every Monday, WB. Enjoy planet Chuck, Ashton. There is no air, laughter, loyalty, or love there.”
—Charlie Sheen reacts to the news that Ashton Kutcher will be replacing him on “Two and a Half Men,” the sitcom he was fired from before losing his marbles. Interestingly, sources say Ashton will be making $650K to $700K an episode, which is an insane amount of loot but still far less than Charlie’s price tag of $1.8 million an episode. So it looks like producer Chuck Lorre might be the one who is winning most of all, what with the publicity and savings per episode? [People] Keep reading »
With Charlie Sheen out at “Two and a Half Men,” everyone’s been wondering who producers will hire to replace him on the insanely popular TV show. Well, I haven’t been wondering because I think that show is garbage, but this isn’t about me. Sheen was apparently in favor of his pal Rob Lowe stepping in. Hugh Grant was rumored to be up for the role, but negotiations “broke down” at the last minute. Well, it looks like a replacement has been found and it’s … Ashton Kutcher? Keep reading »
Charlie Sheen may think he’s “winning,” but one thing he’s certainly lost is his contract with “Two and a Half Men.” CBS and Warner Bros. Television have announced that they have officially fired the trouble actor from the hit TV show, which went on hiatus for the rest of the season following Sheen’s incredibly public meltdown. That meltdown shows no signs of stopping and CBS execs have clearly tired of Sheen’s shenanigans. So, how long before the public tires as well? Though Sheen reached two million followers on Twitter less than a week after joining the social networking site, there are already signs that the public is getting bored, perhaps because the media has been absolutely saturated with 24/7 Sheen coverage. The Village Voice has declared this Friday to be “Unfollow Charlie Sheen On Twitter Day.” Keep reading »
“I never change the channel in my trailer. I just watch reruns of ‘House of Payne’ and ‘Two and a Half Men.’ … I like crazy people who don’t give a f***.”
—Robert Pattinson reveals in Vanity Fair that he is a big fan of “Two and a Half Men” and its star, Charlie Sheen. Wonder what he thinks of the events of this week? Perhaps Robert is bad-ass enough to handle the drug that is Charlie Sheen?

“I am on a drug. It’s called … Charlie Sheen. It’s not available because if you try it once, you will die. Your face will melt off and children will weep over your exploded body. Too much? I woke up and decided I’ve been kicked around, I’ve been criticized, I’ve been the aww shucks guy with this bitchin’ rock star life and I’m finally going to completely embrace it. I’m gonna wrap both arms around it and love it violently.”
—Charlie Sheen talks to “20/20″ about his recent woes, and rants lots more about “Two and a Half Men” creator Chuck Lorre and CBS, who he says he plans to sue for canceling his show for the remainder of the season. All I have to say is—whoa, dude. That is too much.
After the jump, Charlie on “The Today Show,” for more good-time lunacy. Keep reading »
Charlie Sheen has checked into rehab again, confirms “Access Hollywood.” In a statement, Sheen’s rep said:
“As a preventative measure, Charlie Sheen has entered a rehabilitation facility. He will take some time off his series ‘Two and a Half Men.’ He has asked that his privacy be honored. No further statements are planned.”
As a preventative measure? Hi, Charlie Sheen’s rep: after your client is arrested for domestic violence on Christmas for allegedly holding a knife to his wife, Brooke Mueller’s throat, you can cut the BS with the American public. It’s not like Charlie has a squeaky clean image to uphold. [Access Hollywood] Keep reading »
