Charlie Sheen: 'I'll Pay the Crew'

2/9/2011 5:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen has notified members of the "Two and a Half Men" crew that he will pay a portion of their salaries for the two weeks the show has been down ... if CBS and Warner Bros. agree to pay the remaining portion.

TMZ has confirmed ... Charlie is saying he is ready to come back to work next week to complete the season.  We're told Charlie is upset that Warner Bros. and show creator Chuck Lorre have not offered to pay the crew for the downtime, so he's made an offer to pay 1/3 of the crew salaries if Warner Bros. and CBS each pay 1/3 as well.

A CBS exec tells TMZ ... no one on the show is ready to go back to work on Monday.  We're told under the best of circumstances the show will come back at the end of the month, assuming Charlie can handle it.

And the CBS exec adds, no one has asked the network to pay 1/3 of the crew salaries for the downtime.

A Warner Bros. exec would not address Charlie's financial offer but  told us ... "We sincerely hope that Charlie's rehab is going well.  We hope that he is healthy in the very near future and we look forward to the return of production of 'Two and a Half Men.'"

Charlie should pay for all of it! It's not like he can't afford to. It is his fault that they are even in this situation anyway. It's all a matter of priorities, and look at how much money he has wasted on hookers, porn bitches and coke. I am happy to say that I have NEVER watched his show, and certainly wouldn't now.

Typical addict. Still trying to make everyone else pay for his mistakes. He only wants to take 1/3 the responsibility. CBS and the crew can take the rest. What an ass.

Also, it's not 1/3 of the entire crew. He is offering to pay 1/3 of the set crew. That's around $35,000 for him. Or a little over one porn wh*ore with AIDS.

I love Charlie, but since it's 100% his fault, he ought to pay 100% of their salaries.

He's not making himself look any better by asking CBS and Warner Bros. to add to their losses because Charlie got drunk and drugged up.

Good for him for stepping up to the plate. He didn't have to do that!!!

----------------------------

Good God people it's his fault they are not working and 3 weeks at home rehab isn't going to solve their problems because if this man doesn't get serious about living he will be dead in a year. He is joke, Lindsay is a joke and the sad part about both of them is the joke won't win.

So CBS and Warners should have to pay for Charlie's behavior?

Not sure where Charlie gets off with this fantasy. He should step up and cough up the money himself. Probably a couple million.

Thats BS. So if you are out sick and people are sent home because of it, are you going to pay YOUR co-workers salaries?

I did not think so.

And the show is freaking HI-LAR-I-OUS

The production didn't have to stop there are other actors on the show, Charlie could have gone on vacation for a few episodes.
