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.

He is worth the money. Me and my friends only watch that channel for that show. And we catch every showing we can. He pulls an audience and he deserves the money.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!!! We don't care anymore about Charlie or the show. He made his millions and I'm sure he could care less about the show. Like he said he is moving on to bigger and better things. So for all you die hearts get over it!!!!!

What about the little chubby Angus Jones? He goes from 250k an episode to 25 bucks, then in 10 yrs I gotta listen to how the show type cast him into smart ass fat kid roles, and wrecked his career.... I can't take it...

As a fan of two and half men, I think it is time to say good night to the show and put it to bed. Spin off time... Jon Cryer, and Judith's husband become room mates. Now that would be funny!

Love the show but have always watched it in reruns. I watched a new episode last night and was shocked at how old the kid is now, lol! Good think he was barely in the episode because he isn't Jake anymore, as a young man he's outgrown the role. The rest of the episode was a riot. How could you not laugh at Charlie Harper's idea of the GFE? And who can't picture Sheen being that way with the escorts at this point? lol, that episode has to be an all time favorite with the hookers he's been with. The show parodies him so well. :)

I don't care what he does in his personal life, but it is the funniest show on TV. PLEASE sign up, Charlie! Remember folks, it takes two to fight.

Charlie is not one of those men who gets good looking as he gets older and with all the rage, drinking, and drugs that doesn't help his looks, either.

Jon Cryer TOTALLY carries that show! Charlie is NOT worth that kind of money -- and his public image is a mess - which he only has himself to blame. His schtick has gotten too old, anyway! Not funny anymore.

I love Jon Cryer and really hopes he gets something else going. I hate to say I like the show because it is so hard to watch a jerk like Charlie Sheen who I fell in love with as a kid in Lucas. Too bad he ruined his reputation. He could have been as respected as his father is.

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.
