Might Charlie Sheen really exit Two and a Half Men?
With his contract set to expire, Sheen films what may be his final episode of the sitcom tonight. The actor is on record as saying that himself; and, no, this is not a negotiating plot, Sheen insists.
This is the statement he submitted to People magazine today:
“Much speculation and rumor has arisen from my current status surrounding Two and a Half Men.
“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. Approaching the start of the current season and as far back as June ‘09, I submitted my terms for season eight to Warner Bros. and CBS respectfully.
“Both parties have known the score for over a year. In no way, has this been a hasty or negligent eleventh hour surprise. I offer this information out of love and respect to my crew, my on-set family, my writers, executive staff, as well as my real family, my dear friends and my loyal fans. We tape the final episode of the season this evening.
“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. I remain humbly inspired."
Would you be sad to see Sheen go?
