Despite calling Two And A Half Men creator Chuck Lorre everything from a “turd” to an “a-hole pussy loser” (and far worse), the actor made it abundantly clear that he hoped to follow his troubled Violent Torpedo Of Truth with a triumphant return to the sitcom—something CBS initially seemed hopeful for. However, Lorre and show producers Warner Bros. (the people who’d actually have to work with Sheen) have successfully scuttled such dreams, signing Ashton Kutcher to Men for next season. Naturally, everyone’s been wondering how Charlie would respond—and the answer is eerily calm…for Charlie.
“Kutcher is a sweetheart and a brilliant comedic performer…Oh wait, so am I!!” Sheen told TMZ, “Enjoy the show America.Ã‚Â Enjoy seeing a 2.0 in the demo every Monday, WB. Enjoy planet Chuck, Ashton. There is no air, laughter, loyalty, or love there.” That’s it, Charlie? Just a reaffirmation you were available, that Chuck Lorre’s a dingbat, and that the ratings will drop without you? With his tour over and his “Winning” single with Snoop Dogg not exactly blowing minds, will Charlie just count his money and wait to see how his $100 million lawsuit works out, or will he try to seek TV employment elsewhere? If he does anything to smaller numbers than Men Mk II gets, it’ll be hard to hashtag him Winning.
