Warner Bros. Fires Charlie Sheen from Two and a Half Men

by at . Comments

First came the suspension. Now, we've arrived at the official firing.

In a statement released this afternoon, Warner Bros. officially let Charlie Sheen go, saying: "After careful consideration, Warner Bros. Television has terminated Charlie Sheen's services on 'Two and a Half Men,' effective immediately."

Over the past few weeks, of course, the star's behavior has gone from questionable to erratic to downright disturbing. Most recently, he released a series of Web shows titled "Sheen's Korner," in which he went off on "losers" and "trolls" and sounded like a man desperately in need of help.

No decision has been made yet regarding the sitcom's future, though producers have said they'd never continue it without Sheen at the center.

We could think of a few replacements, though. How about you? Should Two and a Half Men shut down for good now? Or is there life after Sheen?

UPDATE: TMZ has released the 11-page letter that spells out Warner Bros. decision to fire its leading man. In it, the studio says it has the right to terminate a performer who commits "a felony offense involving moral turpitude," cites Sheen's meltdown at the Plaza Hotel in NYC and says: "Your client has been engaged in dangerously self-destructive conduct and appears to be very ill."

UPDATE: It didn't take long for Sheen to respond to this move with: "This is very good news. They continue to be in breach, like so many whales. It is a big day of gladness at the Sober Valley Lodge because now I can take all of their bazillions, never have to look at whatshiscock again and I never have to put on those silly shirts for as long as this warlock exists in the terrestrial dimension."

i think u should continue it on. Change the story line, have charlie killed off, (which he is doing to himself anyways).And then maybe have alan,s ex-wife & herb split up, have herb move in with them, and have him being he swinging batchelor. Have jake thinking about marriage, etc, WE love this show, would hate to see it go

I've only watched an episode here and there if there is nothing else on or if my family is watching it...and i don't really care...and Charlie Sheen is clearly mentally insane. Good riddance. And i actually feel really bad for the rest of the cast, like Jon Cryer-i actually like him. They are getting screwed because of him. What an ass hat.

they should try to take the series in a new direction without nutty Charlie... if it sucks then cancel it but dont give up with trying to salvage what left

By the sounds of it, this guy shows clear signs of Bipolar Disorder. This show with Charlie Sheen means it has come to an end. Thank God. Now I don't have to see my family watching it anymore. :D
