Charlie Sheen:

Thanks For Having

My Back Boss

2/2/2011 8:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen compares himself to legendary actor -- and party animal -- Errol Flynn ... in a new statement thanking the big studio honchos for their support.

In his first statement since beginning outpatient rehab ... Charlie said, "I have a lot of work to do to be able to return the support  I have received from so many people."

Charlie continues, "I want to say "thank-you" to my fellow cast members, the crew of "Two and a Half Men", and everyone at CBS and Warner Bros., especially Les Moonves and Bruce Rosenblum for their concern and support. "

He wraps it up with a nod to Flynn, saying ... "And to my fans, your good wishes have touched me very much. Like Errol Flynn, who had to put down his sword on occasion,  I just want to say, "thank-you."

Hey Now    

Oh wait. I just saw this & thought it was so funny.

http://www.amny.com/urbanite-1.812039/recasting-charlie-sheen-in-two-and-a-half-men-1.2657192?utm_campaign=CBS+News&utm_medium=Twitter&utm_source=SNS.analytics

Recasting Charlie Sheen in 'Two and a Half Men'

So “Two and a Half Men” is on hiatus and CBS is ordering some replacement shows for the series while star Charlie Sheen tries to get his act together.

We here at amNewYork are not going to beat around the bush: While CBS is saying Sheen will return to the show, we think it’s high time to start looking for a replacement and let this troubled man play out his life.

And it wouldn’t be the first time a popular television show replaced its star. In fact, Sheen replaced Michael J. Fox in “Spin City.”

But who’s going to take over for Sheen? amNew-York takes a look at some folks we’d like to see either replace the highest-paid actor on TV or take over as a new character in the starring role.

Emilio Estevez
Qualifications: He’s Charlie’s brother, so the transition would be pretty easy. Just say Charlie was in some kind of accident and had to get plastic surgery. Boom, your show continues.

Martin Sheen
Qualifications: Charlie’s dad could come on as, well, Charlie’s dad. Let’s face it: He’d be a much better influence on the half-man. Or he could play Charlie from the future and introduce an entirely new sci-fi time-travel angle to the show.

A Mount Everest-sized pile of cocaine
Qualifications: Who knows Sheen better than his frequent party guest, a Mount Everest-sized pile of cocaine? The coke pile probably has Sheen’s mannerisms and voice down pat by now and should easily and seamlessly make the transition to playing Charlie.

Michael J. Fox
Qualifications: Sheen replaced him on “Spin City.” Turnabout is fair play.

Will Ferrell
Qualifications: He’s stopping by when Steve Carell leaves “The Office.” He might as well stop by here too.

Shaquille O’Neal
Qualifications: He could bring the show to new levels just with his height. And with Shaq on board, you could rename the show to be more accurate: “Three and a Half Men.” Who wouldn’t watch this show?

The baseball from the ‘Major League’ poster
Qualifications: It channels Sheen’s finest moment — when he had a mohawk. With the sunglasses, it’s the spitting image of a young Charlie.

LOL..his publicist knows how fickle and weak minded the majority of the minds of human beings are so they write up a "I'm so, so sorry for what I've done and thanks for having my back" statement to turn public opinion back in his favor.

Good job because it worked and guess what....Charlie still doesn't give a **** what the public thinks about his over the top behavior.

He will do his "home rehab", come back to work stating he feels like a new man and thank everyone for hanging in there with him, people will pat him on the back and in 3-4 months he'll be back in the news again for drugging and boozing with his porn chicks.

Charlie's life is like Groundhog Day.

Sad sad    

This fool hasn't even hit rock bottom and he has his cushion of money not to be roaming the streets whoring himself out for crack. Good example how selfish addicts are. No apologies? Just thanks guys. He has to want it and I don't even get a smidget of want from him. Somewhere in his mind he thinks his actions are way cool. Everyone's like he's such a great guy yet in the same breath trash Lindsay. So funny. He's more of a piece of caca to me. He has kids. Glad he's not my dad. Hey dad can we share some crack? I learned it by watching you.

AS    

If Errol Flynn and Charlie Sheen looked in a mirror, they would have seen each other. In his day, Flynn was a great actor but an alcoholic and a womanizer. Charlie and him have a lot in common. Although Charlie upped the ante with the drugs and the porn obsession...I'll bet Google and Bing are having a field day with people looking up Errol Flynn...That's ok...One day people will be asking "Who was Charlie Sheen"?

Hey Now    

By the way, the movie was not bad. It was a little freaky (not in the porn way). Well who woulda thought a movie called "The Last Exorcism" would be scary. Hot damn!

I would give it a 3.5 out of 5.

Charlie WHO?

I do not feel sorry for Charlie Sheen. Neither do I have any respect for the man. If he cannot handle the role he has chosen in life then give it to someone more emotionally prepared to carry the livelihoods of an entire production company, someone responsible enough NOT to put families' mortgages and bill payments in jeopardy because he can't control his personal demons! tHERE ARE many MORE TALENTED PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO DESERVE the opportunity who can deliver!
Pull it together Charlie or get the hell out!

Charlie - Just work on getting better. Please recognize your conduct is bad - it's not OK the way you think it is - that nothing is wrong attitude. It's your life at stake. Your children need you, your family needs you, your fans need you and we all want you well. Errol Flynn is not a good role model so drop that thought. Take that red eyed picture TMZ posted yesterday, blow it up to a wall portion size and paste it on your living room wall - look at it everyday and think - this is not how you want to be remembered.
