Charlie Sheen

Negotiations in High Gear

5/17/2010 1:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Multiple sources tell TMZ offers and counteroffers have been flying back and forth on a possible new deal for Charlie Sheen on "Two and a Half Men," but the parties are still far apart.

Charlie Sheen
One involved source says, "There have been seven offers.  We're going back and forth every 15 minutes."

Charlie's camp initially said they wanted a "2" in front of any offer -- meaning Charlie wanted at least $2 mil an episode for the next two years.  The source claims Warner Bros. "has gone up [from its initial offer] more than Charlie has gone down."

We're told if a deal is possible, it's likely it will be done either tonight or tomorrow morning.

No comment from Warner Bros.

The CBS upfronts -- where the network announces its fall schedule -- are Wednesday.

Stay tuned ...

Cancel the show. With Charlie's troubles at the moment I don't think he's in any position to be playing hardball. Let him go. Hollywood greed at its best.

Great. Actors, athletes, and CEOs unreasonable compensation packages are just one more sign that our economy is broken and about to fail.
Goodbye (and good riddance) to the stock markets of the world.

No person is worth that much for a TV series season..let alone per each episode...Charlie should take a lower salary cut..like 1 mil per episode and get a bigger percentage from the DVD sales and syndication royalties...he'll be far better off long term as this show isn't going to go forever..

Two and Half men is a great show. Charlie is a crazy son of a gun but he does have big child support payments and I have to agree he is going to need the money. LOL

Get a Nose Job, please!!!    

Most TV shows are so lame. I still think Two and a Half Men is entertaining. Charlie holds the show together. If anyone leaves, it should be Jon Cryer (Alan). He's a bigger nutcase than Charlie. I'm sick of his whining and cheapness. The rest of the cast is good and the writing is funny most of the time. What happened to Jake's new little sister?
