While the folks behind Two And A Half Men would love for Charlie Sheen to spend more time with his kids and less time drinking with porn stars like Bree Olson, it doesn’t look they’re going to do anything unless Charlie’s wild ways actually affect the hit show. “Personally first, on a very basic human level, we have concern,” CBS prez Nina Tassler told journalists at the TV Critics Association press tour. “This man is a father, he’s got children, a family. But you can’t look at it simplistically. Charlie is a pro. He comes to work, he does his job extremely well. I have tremendous trust and respect with how the [producers] are managing the situation. On a professional level, he does his job, he does it well, the show is a hit. And that’s all I have to say.”
As long as Charlie can keep his carousing on the weekends and his jail time/rehab stints on the off-season, it looks like no one in charge is actually going to ask anything of the highest-paid actor on television. Especially when America somehow can’t stop watching Two And A Half Men—still the no. 1 sitcom after eight long years. There’s your moral, kids: those who work hard get to play hard.
