Charlie Sheen -- Rehab for Three Months

1/31/2011 11:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen will be in rehab for the next  three months, derailing the next eight episodes of "Two and a Half Men" ... and possibly leaving the show's crew SOL.

Charlie Sheen Rehab
Sources connected with the show tell TMZ the crew is grumbling ... worried they will be the financial casualties of Charlie's problem. There are 300 people associated with the show, many of whom are nervous about not getting a paycheck.

Sources say when production was halted last February while Charlie was in rehab, the crew was  "partially compensated."

We're told the studio hasn't decided what to do this time around -- whether the staff will be fully or partially compensated. A decision is expected soon.

That said ... everyone we've spoken with is supportive of Charlie and knows he needs to get better, which ultimately will be the best job security.

well this is a joke. 3 months for rehab? Lame.


Make his ass shoot the 8 episodes and then he can go rehab in the summertime. Why hurt everyone else on the set?

If I were on that show or part of the crew I would just look for another job...this happens far to often and it really hurts people working there.. its to bad he has this problem and I hope he can get through it but work is work and if it effects work then go get another job

Charlie,

I wish you well with your recovery in Rehab.

Jim in Cali: Those people who are affected should start filling out their Unemployment Forms ASAP. In that industry you never know how long you will be in your current work assignment.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you Charlie while you go through this difficult time of the past 35 years of smoking cocaine. Please get well quickly and leave rehab so you can get back to stabbing, shooting, choking women and smoking cocaine.

Since it is Charlie who has derailed the show...let him pay the workers for the 3 months they are not working. He makes $2,000,000 an episode...I think he could afford it and maybe a hit in the wallet would wise him up a bit (or not considering what he spends on porn stars)

Since Charlie has so much money that he spends it on porn whores & briefcases of cocaine, while he's in rehab he should cover full compensation for his show's staff.

He makes $8mil. an episonde not 2. Also, if he gets sober there wont be a show, after all, he gets paid to play himself.
Charlie: Drunk, drugged, whoremonger. Character: Drunk, drugged, whoremonger.

This is the nature of producing a television show.

Everyone on set and attached to a production company KNOWS that.
