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.

I guess Hollywood is the only business where you can be a druggie, an addict, a criminal, a woman beater, and still be very gainfully employed and richly compensated. Most other industries and career fields wouldn't tolerate this kind of behavior more than once.

I think they should be fully compensated....by Charlie. He doesn't seem to mind handing out money lately anyway.

C.Sheen is not serious about getting and staying clean of drugs, therefore he might as well, leave rehab each day to do the show and go back at night, that's what he's going to do anyway. He will not stay there in the right way for 3 months.. Watch and see..

You can replace the person who the fckin story is baised off of you guys are stupid! 2nd the only people this hurts are the people who don't paid over 1mill per show like grips assistants whatever everyone else cant afford it don't like it get a new job fast. Charlie will always be a drunk whore loving player and he's doing this to lay low like his ASSAULT case nothing else. And to please CBS don't get it wrong CBS needs him more then he needs them. And if you don't lime Charlie for Charlie don't watch the show and it won't be the most popular show on TV!

He SHOULD pay all 300 members compensation for his F-CK UPS(they deserve it more than the porno hookers he plays with)

Diagnosis: sex addict, narcissistic personality disorder, sociopath, alcholic and drug addict (and he just happens to be famous)

His addictions can be treated, but his Axis II conditions CANNOT be treated Good Luck!!

Write him out of the show. Who cares if he's the big star. If he died they'd have to anyways. Jon Cryer is awesome.

Since this has happened before i can not believe they do not have Insurance. That is what they have to do on films with difficult actors. At any rate I think everyone should be paid and per chance Mr.Sheen should fit the bill. Why should he affect anyones livelyhood?

I'm wondering what happened to the reported briefcase of cocaine? Isn't Charlie on probation or something? No legal repercussions over the cocaine or has the 'proof' been long flushed I suppose? Do the police not follow up on reports such as that?

Its time for Emelio Estevez!:)

I would like to see him fit in two and a half men and take over the lead role:)

For those of you who do not know Emilio and Charlie hate each other, and if Emelio would accept the part this would mean ultimate payback!

The show has been the best comedy on television for 8 seasons. During that time they found out that the character, "Rose" was not critical to the shows plot. Actually, the actors Jon Cryer and Angus Jones have more humor in their performance than Sheen. Keep Cryer and Jones and Berta, and keep all the gorgeous babes acting in the series, and bring back their first group of writers who have since gone to other writing other series, and Sheen's hiatus can be tolerated.

It just occurred to me that Denise Richards swooped in and got full custody of her kids when Charlie pulled to NY Hotel pillowcapades. It's odd that Brooke Mueller didn't do that, especially since this is a worse scenario. I guess the twins are her payday every month. Interesting.
