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.

I personally no longer find Sheen’s act amusing. I find the continuing references to prostitutes and random sex acts to be offensive under the cir***stances. There are just too many truly talented actors out there to put up with his bull.

I hope he DOESN'T come back. I neither support drunks NOR losers. Both of which he seems to be excelling at. Too bad.
Charlie, ... we hardly knew ya.

Charlie better keep this show while he can....his gigs have
been FEW AND FAR BETWEEN in his career.
Apart from his goofy roles in those movie spoofs, Charlie
does'nt have a very overwhelming resume.
Best advice to Charlie...shut up and show up....

Actually, I think it's time Mr. Sheen took responsibility for his actions. Hopefully the other actors aren't suffering (either financially or otherwise) from the damage addicts cause to everyone and everything around them. Even better, maybe the writers of Two & a Half Men could write an episode entitled "Uncle Charlie goes to rehab" instead of "who's boffing who"!

Your children and grandchildren shouldn't be watching "Two and a Half Men." It's not a kid's show, Granny. It's is, however, hilarious and is SUPPOSE to be outrageous. If you don't like it, turn on Retro TV and knock yourself out on "My Three Sons" reruns.

If Charlie Sheen wants to kill himself with booze, drugs and skanky women, that's his business and his right. It's his money.

Our interest and the interest of the show's sponsors only needs to go as far as how he performs on the series. That's the cold, hard truth. Charlie Sheen is a commodity, like all entertainment personalities. That's the nature of this industry.

Do I hope he cleans up his act? Of course I do. He looks like absolute death warmed over in his latest episodes. You don't have to be a doctor to see this man is burnt out. In the show, it seems that he is basically plunked into a chair and rattles out one-liners and zingers.

If Mr. Sheen doesn't clean up his life, that's his choice. It's not up to us to judge him .... and it's not up to us to give a crap about what he does with his personal life.

With all the dough he and the other's make on the show, I can't feel sorry for any of them. I wish I could land a role on a show, playing myself and getting his bucks. But I'm not a scandolous type, lol..

We stopped watching long ago when the funny went away. Sheen and the writers are to blame, but then again, it starts at the top.

Charlie needs help and needs to get out of the spotlight for his dumb behavior . He continues to make a complete fool out of himself year after year.He is not representing CBS in a favorable light and should be fired . But he is not the sharpest knife in the drawer!

Charlie Sheen is a good actor and the star of a great show !
with all the crap and cop shows and reality shows just stupid situation comedies they have a winner with two and a half men

They knew when they hired Charlie Sheen that he drank and partied and chased women, That is his character !!!

If CBS cancels the show, what do you think they have left ?

Some real crap here... Blue Bloods, CSI New York, Medium, Criminal minds, The Defenders, Survivor,

The Best thing CBS has put on in years is Two and a half Men
They should kiss Sheen's ass and beg him to stay !

They need to cancel the whole spring line up and start over
maybe get some new writers

Never said that Sheen was a role model

I heard today that the only time he drinks and does drugs is when he is bored with time on his hands. Wake up and smell the vomit Charlie and stop the denial. The only thing that will prevent him from eventually ending up in the hospital near death is the show needs to be cancelled. Since this will represent a significant emotional and financial event he will finally wake up one day and enter rehab for no less than 6 months. He has a lot of issues behind this drinking and boozing all his life. It will take 6 months to begin to scratch the surface and come to grips with them all.

I really loved 2 1/2 Men, but as life began to imitate art more and more I stopped watching and really at this point I'm not interested anymore. I'm no TV genius, but I'll bet a lot of people feel the same way. It just seems sad now, and I'm no saint.
