Charlie Sheen Controls the Fate of 'Men'

2/15/2011 1:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

If Charlie Sheen leaves "Two and a Half Men" ...  the show is over  ... this according to sources connected to the production.

Charlie Sheen Two and a Half Men

Our sources say if Charlie doesn't come back, his role will absolutely not be re-cast and Warner Bros. would end production immediately.

As TMZ has been reporting, there's a lot of conflict between Charlie on the one side and Warner Bros., CBS and creator Chuck Lorre on the other.

Charlie says he wants to return to work but is beyond pissed that Warner Bros. has 86'd 4 of the last 8 scheduled episodes this season. 

Everyone is braced for the worst, but so far, the show is scheduled to return to production on February 28.

Pull the plug. There is 177 episodes already in the can, all of which we can watch over and over and over again in syndication.

This season has been pretty abysmal. Tired writing to compensate for Charlie who you can tell has totally lost it.

I turned to the show last night and I'm not sure why CBS feels he could not be replaced because Charlie on every show has the same story line... drink... get drunk and have sex. The others on the show are the ones that make it funny and a fun show to watch. So, CBS get rid of Charlie and keep everyone else and make your viewers happy :)!!! Give the maid and kid more lines and run with it. It would still be a number one show.

How many families can live on one week of Charlie Sheens salary? I am sick of the overpaid actors and athletes. Get a frickin grip, go to "In Patient" rehab not for 30 days, 60 days or 90 days go until you figure out what the hell is wrong with you. If you cannot get your ego under control you will die a very lonely old man. Remember, your type of friends will only stick around as long as you are paying for the drugs a hookers. Once all your money is gone so are your so called "friends" If you have nothing better to spend your money on how about sending some to my family so we can have a nice dinner for the first time in 2 years. Grow the **** up. You are too old for this bull****!

I am SOOO tired of Charlie Sheen's behavior,.....he's not that good of an actor. He firmly believes he's got Warner Brothers by the ballz,.....there are so many better actors out there, and you Warner's keep letting this addict get away with all of his shina****ns. Warner's ,....stand up,....be a MAN! The way it looks Charlie is running Warner's,...not you guys. It's obvious Charlie is incapable of acting like a grown up, respectable man. Soo sick of his s**t,.....I stipped watching the program,....he's such a hypocrite,.....calling him 'Teflon' Charlie. Warner's, how much more embarrassment do you need to do through? Putz,....

I'm one of the show's biggest fans and Charlie is making even me sick at this point. It has GOT to be hell depending on a flaky guy like this to keep your job. Charlie ought to pay the crew their entire pay for the 4 episodes they have to miss because of him.

4 episodes is about 8 million dollars Charlie lost himself in wages and then he goes on the radio saying he could slip up again real fast. Charlie man, you're fired.

If the producers won't do any episodes without Charlie, they must be tired of making money. In fact, they should let Herb finish out the season -- just give Herb a bigger part!

#17 Mike...give me a break... you are a name dropper...like you even live anywhere west of the Mississippi. Paramount...the only thing Paramount about you is the brand of coffee you probably drink in the morning.

Sheen has been in "rehab" for what - 3 weeks? Hardly think he's recovered. Maybe next time before he goes on one of his binges, he'll think twice about how many people it is impacting. My guess is that the studio is trying to tell him to shape up. This arrogant, "I can do anything I want attitude" is what got him landed in this mess. Do you think if something like that happened to anyone out in the "real" world, a company would put up with this garbage? Heck no. They would be canned tomorrow. Count yourself lucky, Charlie! Love the show, but get your s@%t together!

Highly doubtful Charlie would leave the show at this point. Doin' the rehab. Getting his life together. It would never happen. Plus, they're paying him so much per episode it's like golden handcuffs to continue.

Becky, you're so right on it, it bears repeating:

FIRST: Charlie wants to compensate the crew; however, he wants the big dogs to help him to do so. That's a lot of people to compensate.

SECOND: Nothing in the above does it say Charlie is leaving, Charlie says HE WANTS to make up for the lost 4 episodes so that the crew will have a steady paycheck.

CAN ANY OF YOU REAADDDD???
