It has not been a good couple of weeks for Charlie Sheen, but considering the life he lives it hasn’t been a great couple of decades for him either. After a series of binges with hookers, porn stars, cocaine and z-list celebrities, his ‘rehab’ is underway. But the fate of Two and a Half Men is still uncertain.
Originally, there were plans that all eight episodes of the current season would be filmed, though a little behind schedule. But then Chuck Lorre, the creator of the show, slashed that in half. Four episodes will now be aired.
This has left the crew in a serious bind. That is four episodes they won’t be paid for, but that they are responsible to cover for what little production has been done.
“We’ve been left in the dark and now we have no pay for 4 episodes and all we hear is that Chuck is saying, ‘They’re not my problem,”” TMZ quoted a source.
But Sheen has been pretty adamant about continuing like usual. Honestly, with how he was trying to fit the schedule into his rehab program I am kind of surprised that Lorre would just axe half the episodes like this. What. did he decide it was too much trouble?
Sheen only found out when he went to the set and found the stage locked and no one there. He ended up calling The Dan Patrick Show to say that it was totally an executive decision, and one he was never even alerted to.
It is beginning to look like this show has seen its end.
