Charlie Sheen

It's Easy to Say Goodbye

5/11/2010 1:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Suddenly it's looking like Charlie Sheen may not re-sign with "Two and a Half Men" -- sources tell TMZ.

Charlie Sheen and jon cryer
Several sources familiar with the situation say Sheen likes playing Charlie Harper but he's thinking about "the next thing" -- though no one would be specific.

"Charlie is really into his sobriety now," one source said, adding, "He likes the show but it brings back bad memories." 

Here's what's crazy ... with all the add-ons, Charlie stands to make between $60 - $100 mil for the next two years ... depending on how the negotiations go.  We're told he's letting his people pursue negotiations for a new contract but, as one source says, "If it doesn't happen it literally wouldn't faze him."

On the other hand, sources say Jon Cryer's people are all working behind the scenes trying to goose a deal.  Cryer, we're told, stands to make $20 mil over the next 2 years if the show comes back.

Several sources say, as of this AM, the parties have not tried negotiating their differences ... and they are far apart. 

The clock is ticking.  CBS announces its fall schedule on May 19.

God, he is such an ugly man. Why on earth any woman would find this thug attractive is beyond me, then again, a lot of women today don't have their priorities straight and couldn't pick a decent man to save their lives. He's such an embarrassment to Martin Sheen - no wonder he never has any public comment about his loser son.

CBS, wise the hell up. Emilio Estevez could take over for Charlie with no problems. And he'll work for less. Dump Charlie Sheen. Nobody wants to watch that abusive drunky anymore.

I like the show but the kid is getting too old. And second, AA says "stay away from people, places and things that make you think about drinking" It probably is the safest thing that he does not go back to acting like a drunk on TV.

He is just holidng out for money. Why do people continue to watch his show about a man who uses women for sex and doesn't so repect for any female. Art imitating life. He has always been known as a many who would pay for sex and parties too much. I like how he 'gave away' his girls, and we thought Denise the bad parent. Who know it would take a few years for everyone to see C.S. is a sleeze.

Sounds like Jon Cryer has been getting very modest pay (proportionately speaking), . . . kind of like Brad Garrett, when "Everybody Loves Raymond" was being filmed and broadcast . . .

This show should have been GONE a long time ago. It is sickening how they pimp this kid out with their SEX jokes year after year. His parents should be ashamed of themselves. Just goes to show you what the actors, writers, producers, etc. think of children. Anything for a buck. If this is the best acting SHEEN can do, be gone with him. He epitomizes the worst of Hollywood. If he wants to be taken seriously, get off a show that PIMPS OUT CHILD ACTORS.

He is Bluffing, he knows that is easy massive money and I believe this stuff about as much as his reason for wearing the costume and his not being ready to get a divorce and so on and so forth.

I am amazed anyone watches the show to begin with. Same old same old. Why anyone would pay him one red cent for his performance is a mystery to me. $60...-100 million puts him up there with the Super Rats at Goldman Sachs and Merrill-Lynch.
