Sheen demands 50 percent raise for ‘Two and a Half Men’ (TRAIN WRECK!!!)
The Today Show ^ | 2/28/11 | Seamus McGraw

Posted on 02/28/2011 6:58:50 AM PST by Dengar01

In an interview with NBC’s Jeff Rossen that aired on TODAY Monday morning, Charlie Sheen, the combative star of long-running hit “Two and a Half Men,” demanded a raise from approximately $2 million to $3 million per episode to come back to the set of the show. CBS and Warner Bros. Television have currently halted production for the show’s ninth season in the wake of Sheen’s very public rants against “Men” creator Chuck Lorre and Alcoholics Anonymous.

“I’m not angry, I’m passionate,” Sheen told Rossen. “It’s everybody thinks I should be begging for my job back, and I’m just going to forewarn them that it’s everybody else that’s going to be begging me for their job back.”

Though he claimed he has been swamped with offers for movies, Sheen said: “I am a man of my word, so I will finish the TV show. I’ll even do season 10, but at this point, [because of] psychological distress, oh, my God, it’s 3 mil an episode.”

WOW!!! If you wanna forget about Obama, the economy, gas, hippies in Wisconsin, NOTHING beats this video!!! This guy is absolutely entertaining!!!

He sincerely believes he should be given a 1 million dollar raise, do a bunch of movies and cured himself from drugs and alcohol and then says CBS should "lick his feet!!!!!!!"

So forget about the hell Obama has put us through, sit back and enjoy..... THE Charlie Sheen!!!

Dude’s got an overly-inflated ego and he’s starting to believe his own press releases.

I believe he’s about to receive a smack-down of epic (even Biblical) proportions.

He is also the drunk who claimed his writer, who he made sure to point out was a Jewish man who changed his name to sound less Jewish, was a loseer. I assume that is Charlie’s assumption, although I can’t imagine being Jewish in Hollywood is a deterrent to having a job. Anyway, charlie said his writers, etc sleep with their ugly wives and have ugly children and loser lives. Apparently Charlie isn’t bright enough to realize those hookers and porn whores are being paid to be with him. So the Jewish Writer “Loser” (yeah I’d like to have his loser income!) has a wife and children but Charlie has to pay hookers to touch him.

I would not be surprised if he gets everything he asks for.

This is a publicity goldmine, and the network stands to make huge money off this debacle. Sheen knows this.

“I’m not angry, I’m passionate,” (Sheen told Rossen) is a lefty phrase and I’ll bet Charlie learned this it from good ole dad Martin.

Ok, I watched the ENTIRE video and if he is drunk or on drugs. He is living in a delusional wonderland that I would imagine is from too many years of destroying his brain with drugs and booze, I mean $20,000 of cocaine in one night!!!???!!! How does one not die off that much cocaine, I'm sure he was sharing but after so much partying when does the liver and kidneys shut down?

Anyways, like I said this is a nice thread to take our mind off all the hell going on in the world right now.

So for that, Thanks Charlie!!!

I just am DYING to be a fly on the wall in Martin Sheen's house, I would love to see what that convoluted lib is saying.

There's a famous Hollywood quote that applies to Charlie, "I don't pay them to have sex, I pay them to leave." Paying means no commitment, no alimony.

I'm not a fan of Martin Sheen or his liberal politics, but I'm willing to give him a pass on this one. Just because Martin Sheen isn't going in front of the cameras every day to speak about his son doesn't mean that he isn't concerned. Charlie Sheen is completely out of control, and absolutely no one, including his father, can reason with him at this point.

I'm not being compassionate I guess, but when a guy is making $2,000,000 an episode which goes up his nose in the form of coke then goes nuts, costs over 100 people their jobs, and continues to act like Zeus.... well yeah I don't have pity for this bum.

If anyone on this website was given 3 mil just once they would be able to live off it the rest of their lives through smart investments and avoiding binge drug parties with lots of hookers and booze.

He has recently given his opinion of Obama...”A coward in a cheap suit”.

Its because Obama won’t investigate September 11 as an inside job - not even the One is that stupid.

Sure Sheen is a stark raving lunatic...but aren’t most liberals? Are they going to get upset at the One for not lowering ocean levels, closing Gitmo, etc...I hope so.

“... no one, including his father, can reason with him at this point”.

Agreed. Charlie Sheen is close to 50 years old. What can his Father really do? Ground him, give him a sound talking to? The best that Martin Sheen can do right now is maintain a relationship with his grandchildren. IMHO

God, I can imagine this thread is going to be a fun one to watch.

Can anyone identify what substance this dude is on during the video. Doesn't seem like booze because he is not slurring. I am thinking an upper like cocaine.

I know we have several doctors on FR so I am actually curious. The guy is wired so my best guess as an amateur is that he is on coke.

Martin was quick enough to call Bush “ a white-knuckle drunk”. He needs to look a little closer to home.

Only Charlie can help Charlie. He's 45 years old for cryin out loud. I am sure that at this point, Martin has turned over the final resolution to God's will.

Maybe Charlie lives and maybe he dies. We shall see.

I cannot believe he actually read from the Big Book. LOL

His Father has been out there trying to get his Son to go get help. It’s virtually impossible to get someone to rehab if they don’t want to go...especially if they’re rich and famous. Actually, I believe Martin tried to get a court to give him control of his son’s money...but no go. Charlie Sheen is not at that point...yet.

Since when is it American to bestow compassion according to the income of the recipient? That's precisely what all socialists since Marx have always taught: people are divided into classes and, whereas some deserve help and compassion, others deserve hatred. That is what Muslims believe as well: it is OK to deceive a Christian or a Jew but not OK to deceive another Muslim.

In Judeo-Christian morality, we don't think that judgment of another in matters unrelated to economics depend on his income. How is being hit by a car hurt any less if you have millions in the bank?

As Bennett said in mid-1990s, "While the majority of people in this country identify themselves as Christians, they no longer guide themselves by Christian principles in their daily lives." You prove him right. And prove also how class deeply class envy, which Marx and Lenin expended so much energy to ignite, permeated the society: what even you, a conservative, thinks of others depends on how much money they make.

When conservatives don't even notice how far away they have moved from traditional American principles, is there any wonder that we have a commie in the White House?

He sure is on a "buttered" slide. I did read that Denise Richards went to court to keep him away from their daughters. Don't know if she won.

Too bad Martin can't get him committed. I believe Charlie is dangerous.

Being on sets is long grueling work believe it or not. Again, his bosses get a lot more for doing very little. Same as ball players. If the team is going to reap that much dough the engines that drive it may as well reap too.
