Charlie Sheen says if TV show ends, "so be it"

Fri Apr 9, 10:36 AM PDT

Award-winning actor Charlie Sheen has broken his silence on contract renewal talks for his hit TV program, "Two and A Half Men," saying that if his role ends after the program's current season, "so be it."

Sheen, who was nominated four times for an Emmy for his role as sex-crazed bachelor Charlie Harper on the CBS show, gave a statement to People magazine on Friday in which he slammed media reports that he was demanding a higher salary.

"All of the numbers reported in the press are false. Claims from 'inside sources' regarding offers from the studio as well as my salary, on their best day, are without merit," Sheen said in the statement.

For years, "Two and A Half Men" has been among the most-watched sitcoms on U.S. television, and losing the program would be a blow to CBS's advertising revenue.

One week ago reports surfaced that Sheen, who is currently facing domestic violence charges in Colorado, was seeking as much as $1 million per episode, a substantial raise from his current level of $825,000, to continue on an eighth season.

The 44-year-old star's current contract ends after season seven, and the final show is being taped on Friday.

"If tonight's show is the end for me as Charlie Harper, so be it. Another journey has begun. I take from the experience 161 shows filled with a kaleidoscope of amazing experiences, memories, friendships and gratitude," he said.

Last December, the actor was arrested in Aspen, Colorado and later charged with assaulting and threatening his wife, Brooke Mueller. He has pleaded not guilty, and both he and Mueller have entered rehabilitation programs.

agreed.
I don't even watch it - but I know it's a huge hit with an enormous following.

Hell, on "FRiends" they ALL got $1mill per episode.

I watched it once or twice, and until recently had no idea it was still on. I found it boring and vulgar.

Besides, shouldn't Sheen be in jail for domestic violence?

I don't think it's so much about the money as it is Sheen doesn't seem to want to stay on the show. His acting seems to be mediocre compared to previous seasons.

I believe if you read the post you might notice he and his wife are in rehabilitation programs, which might amount to no jail time. I said might.

So to me it is a 20 minutes of fun. If I am not watching the History's, Science,
National GEO or some other channel.

But I accept your opinion. So what do you like?

The show as OK the first couple of seasons but it got boring after that, and I do not think any actor on TV is worth a million an episode. I find it ludicrous that any TV executive in his right mind would pay such a sum to people who are at best mediocre.

The only thing I watch on TV besides history and science shows is NCIS, Bones, and CSY NY.
