'Two and a Half Men' Crew Furious - Episodes Cut

2/14/2011 3:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The cast and crew of "Two and a Half Men" have just taken a major hit to their bank accounts, because Warner Bros. has just axed 4 of the remaining episodes ... TMZ has learned.

Warner Bros. was supposed to produce 8 more episodes to end the season, but with Charlie Sheen out, it set production behind.

Sources connected with the show tell us ... show creator Chuck Lorre has decided he only wants to produce 4 more episodes when Charlie comes back, and the crew is pissed.

One crew member tells us, "We've been left in the dark and now we have no pay for 4 episodes and all we hear is that Chuck is saying, 'They're not my problem.'"

Sources say Charlie has told people he was willing to work weekends and beyond the scheduled wrap date to make sure all 8 episodes were produced. 

As for the schedule, we're told the show will go back into production on February 28.  The remaining 4 episodes will be shot on March 4, 11, 18 and 25.

No talent.

Word around the office is that Charlie Sheen uses Blood Transfussions to pass drug tests. Charlie Sheen buys donated blood and transfuses the old cocaine blood out of his body to pas drug tests. Lost his voice from vomitting, the stomach acid stripped his throat raw.

it really doesn't make that much difference because we are so used to seeing repeats, some times they will play it 3 times in a week. Sorry to the people that aren't getting paid because the big network still makes a BOAT load of cash of the DRUNK

IF tmz is telling the truth, the crew needs to be angry at WB b/c Charlie wants to make 8 episodes as he's out $7.2M for them.

Dana #2, he hasn't been doing movies because he's been doing constant TV for years. He's the highest paid actor on TV so saying nobody wants to hire him is ridiculous. Talentless, you may have an argument there, but sitcoms aren't exactly known for great displays of acting.

This programme is not even good. The laugh track alone freaking annoying. Add Charlie and Jon's lame acting... the kid saves the show.

Why do people in Hollywood or anyone who thinks the same as them believe they deserve to be paid. Charlie is a sick man, getting help. He is NOT RESPONSIBLE for your jobs. He could die tomorrow and you wouldn't have a job. When companies go out of business or lay people off the company is NOT responsible for what happens to the employee. Why should Charlie be responsible for these people? He is an actor-these people chose to work for this CBS show and if it needs time off oh well. Reality is real life. Get one.

Stay the straight and narrow, Charlie. We are with you!

Ummmm... you cannot buy blood transfusions. A rep with WB is with him when they take his blood/urine. Who even said they take his blood?

It's not his problem. He's just a hired actor the heads in charge decided to cancel 4 episodes. Oh well, they should grateful they've made what they have off of 'his' show. Businesses go under all the time for stupid reasons.. you go find another job. Do the crew of bad shows get pissed off when they are canceled and look to one of the stars of the show to blame or carry them?

Warner Bros is wrong here, if Charlie's half well they should produce all 8. On overtime if they have to. The others should not suffer for this situation.
