It looks like Two And A Half Men creator Chuck Lorre hasn’t lost his sense of humor about star Charlie Sheen. His production company credit at the end last night’s episode featured a list Chuck’s guidelines for healthy living. “I exercise regularly. I eat moderate amounts of healthy food. I make sure to get plenty of rest. I see my doctor once a year and my dentist twice a year. I floss every night. I’ve had chest x-rays, cardio stress tests, EKG’s and colonoscopies. I see a psychologist and have a variety of hobbies to reduce stress. I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I don’t do drugs. I don’t have crazy, reckless sex with strangers.” And here’s the kicker: “If Charlie Sheen outlives me, I’m gonna be really pissed.”
One has to assume this message was planned before Sheen called The Dan Patrick Show to complain they wouldn’t let him work (“I heal really quickly, but I also unravel pretty quickly. So get me right now, guys! Get me right now!”). While everyone plans to get back to work on February 28th, Charlie’s public comments (“avoid crack, unless you can manage it socially”) suggest that—even if he can stay cool for another two weeks—he’s not willing to give us his vice-filled lifestyle at all. Can Lorre just laugh it off, or will this (abbreviated) season of Two And A Half Men be its last?
