Charlie Sheen Controls the Fate of 'Men'

2/15/2011 10:57 AM 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.

0215_welcome_sheen_EX

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

As TMZ has been reporting, there has been 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 now but is beyond pissed that Warner Bros. has 86'd 4 of the last 8 scheduled episodes this season.

For Lorre's part ... he put a slate at the end of last night's show, which read in part: "I don't drink.  I don't do drugs.  I don't have crazy, reckless sex with strangers.  If Charlie Sheen outlives me, I'm gonna be really pissed."

The show is supposed to go back into production on February 28, but the tension between Sheen and Lorre has reached a boiling point, so anything can happen.

Charley needs to grow up and be a father to his children and leave all the hoes and drugs alone. With the way he is going he is lucky to even still have a television show I dont let my children watch him they see enough of the real him on the news they dont need to see him pretending to be a good man following a script.

I used to love this show but something is lacking now. However, it could still be a good show with the brother and nephew. Charlie could just move away and the others could carry on.

Charlie Sheen: I have pity for him, but frankly, his refusal to straighten up will put a lot of people out of work. Yes the show is funny--but that young boy should never have been allowed to hear 1/2 the stuff coming out of Charlie's mouth. There are seasoned sailors that probably blush.

I think Charlie could be replaced--hey, how about Michael J. Fox????

Jon Cryer is a much better actor and comedian than Charlie Sheen. I'm sure a replacement can be found for Charlie Sheen. Charlie will not be missed.

After the media report's of Sheen being the "father" of the woman named in recent releases ( the prostitute), and she anounces to the world she is pregnant, he is the father and she is going to Oregon to "deal" with it !! Needless to say....this show is removed from my TVO settings.....remove this show....cable would be a fool to pick up reruns.....all should boycott this show and any station that broadcasts this show.

Charlie is not a positive roll model. He lets his life be run by the manhood therory. His actions over the years = drugs-booze & sex are what he feels makes him whole. He needs the shock of his actions = his behavior deserves punishment. If he crashes (He is on self distruct) & burns let those who care pay his way. Life is not a bowl of cherries for most people = HE DESERVES NO BETTER !!!!!!!

I have to take a drug test and are subjected to random testing throughout my employment. Why shouldn't Sheen be required to do the same? He surely has more contact with People than I do. He probably Drives to work and back same as me.

Wow these comments are all so judgemental. The show is a great show. It's one of the funniest on. It's not made for children to watch. It is a adult sitcom. Anyone letting there children watch this show must have there own issues to deal with. As a adult watching a show I can tell the difference between reality and comedy. Charlie Sheens behavior on or off the show is not going to alter any of my morals. I don't watch sitcoms to find people to look up to. Charlie Sheen is obviously having serious issues and I feel sorry for him. I am sure he would want to overcome his additons but its hard to get back up once you go down that road. My sympathy is with him and his co-workers who are being affected, not with viewers who probably should not be watching the show if they find it so risque. Since risque is the reason the show is so popular. I love the character Jake the nephew and would truly miss seeing the show every Monday.

The show's producers, and the studio heads, need to remember that this is NOT the Charlie Sheen show, the show IS an ensemble piece and is being written by a talented staff of script writers.
Jon Cryer, Angus T. Jones, Conchata Ferrell, Holland Taylor, Marin Hinkle, Melanie Lynskey, and Ryan Stiles are outstanding in their roles on the show!
Each have developed their roles into such entertaining characters!
CBS needs to let Mr. Sheen leave the show to work on his personal problems. Sure the fans of the show will miss him, but I really think that they would understand the reasons for the role being recast.
Allow a talented "unknown" to play the part of Charlie Harper or bring in a new character. Frankly, when you think about the character of Evelyn Harper it would not be such a shock to discover that she had another son stashed away from some wild time in her past.....!
Let Charlie marry and have to move to New York to do the Charlie Waffles show. Bring in a new "Harper" and let the show continue!

I agree that the show has gotten more and more tasteless, where it used to be funny, but have you been to the movies lately?? Really, the Kids Are Alright and Black Swan were both filled with way too graphic sex and filthy language, and are both winning awards. I'm no prude, but my 14 yr old daughter saw BS and was so upset, she loves Natalie Portman and has danced for years, and it freaked her out (esp seeing Mila Kunis' face between Portman's thighs). I digress, but jeez, really?
