'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.

Through all the seasons of 2 & 1/2 men Charlie has never appeared, in my opinion, "off his game". Was he a problem "prima dona" at work? Did his fellow actors or crew "hate" working with him? If he was doing his job, they should not have stopped production.
I feel though, that all his media outbursts are hurting him and as a result, his relationship with his kids is suffering. I must say, I think he showed exceptional restraint when police showed up at his door to take his babies away. As any good parent would, he peacefully turned them over to avoid traumatizing them. My hat is off to him for that!
Charlie, I hope you can just calm yourself down and enjoy being a good dad....that's your most important role for your sons & daughters!
May GOD bless you and your beautiful family and lead you to peace & happiness.

Maybe Chuck doesn't care much BUT, who started all this confusion and misfortune - Charlie or Chuck? Who's acting the fool and doing drugs? Who's threatening his wife by cutting her head off and mailing it to her Mother? Who is allegedly bedding a nanny & a former porn star?

They should replace Charlie Sheen with comic Lewis Black as his uncle that secretly had invested in Charlie's beach house and has decided to move in. Lewis could be the moms estranged brother. The dynamics would be hilarious.

Someone came up with good idea. Have Herb and Judith split and have him move into Charlie's house with Jake and Allen. He is very funny and it would save money for the show. But clean it up some. But that's probably why a hit, cause it is so dirty.

here's a thought, most get up go to work, come home care for children go to bed and do it over and over again 5 days a week. Annually they are earning 40,000- for a "good" job. Maybe the cast and crew should have put some of their hundred of thousand of dollars annually away in case they were unemployed. Go sign up at your local unemployment center and join the rest of "the real world"....just saying

I love Charlie Sheen,he made the show.He just needs a little help.I want to see the show back on.We miss him.He should not be held accountable for the other cast members they are talented actors and should be able to find employment else where.Its all just a shame.Good luck charlie,get better and come back soon.

bring Charlie Sheen back and take Aston off.Make it look like yuo cremated the wrong body and Charlie really wasn't dead. All ashton wants to do is go naked and act like a sex symbol. this used be a family not anymore.
