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 think the show has been really funny in previous shows but I kind of hope that they cancel it due to Sheen's arrogance. They have been giving him so many second chances, it's ridiculous. He and Lindsey Lohan should hook up. I do feel for the fellow actors on Two and A Half Men. They have done nothing wrong to deserve the fallout from Sheen's actions. I'll miss Alan, Jake, Berta and Satin, lol, the Harper's mom. I think Sheen is washed up at an early age. He's beyond help and self absorbed.

I don't understand all the attention this is receiving. As a long time Californian, I have come to accept that there are 2 separate sets of rules: one for celebs and one for non-celebs. It is commonplace for celebs to break the law, place other non-celeb citizens at risk as they drive drunk or under the influence. Celebs rarely if ever see any consequences for any of their actions. Charlie will be stonger than ever and be able to command more money than ever. Prostitutes, drugs, drunkeness, it just doesn't matter. If you're a celeb - no rules, no consequences, no jail.. Just rehab, new movie deals and endorsements.

It would do the public a favor if 2 1/2 men would be taken off the air...this show has just gotten lewd and lacivious...just shows how far we have slipped as a country to think this crap is entertainment.

Somebody needs to do an intervention for Sheen before he wraps himself around a tree or does himself in with alcohol and drugs. The man is a train wreck!

Awww come on CBS...just recast the role!!!!
The show is great and the writer's do a super job so just recast Charlie Sheens part!
Have a special talent hunt and give some talented unknown their big break by casting them in the role! It would be great publicity and show some of these HOllywood "problem children" that they CAN be replaced! There is a LOT of talent just waiting for their chance.... ;-)
Keep 2 and a half Men on air by recasting the character!

If CBS lets this continue we will know it is all about $$$$$. The kindest thing to do is end the show now, while Sheen can still be saved. If not, he will be the next to die from his inability to deal with life and his self-medicating on drugs and sex. And any remorse shown by CBS execs is phony.

WOW such vile comments. This guy needs help-not criticism. For anyone to wish him to die is beyond belief. As far as his ex-wives are concerned, they got their piece of flesh when they were divorced. We should all be wishing this guy well because he is on the edge instead of criticizing him. The network has made millions off of Charlie and now when he's in trouble they throw him under the bus. I hope the show continues but not at Charlie's expense. He is that show and it's very entertaining. If he leaves and the network takes a loss, too bad - they've had their portion of flesh.

I still say make Charlie pay the crew and supporting casts salaries for a year. And at that point ask him if he's serious about staying sober and acting like a socially acceptable human being and father. Then consider keeping the series alive, otherwise cancel it. This will give everyone else time to find something difference. Ya gotta play Good Time Charlie "Got The Blues".

Oh COME ON, Charlie in real life is the perfect role for Charlie in Two and a half. It's literally the only funny sitcom I've seen in years, why let the corporate pinhead ruin fans enjoyment. I say extend his contract and keep on keepin on.

I think they could recast his character in a heartbeat. If they picked the right actor the show would not miss a beat. It worked with Bewitched years ago,and I think it would work now. After all that character doesn't require a Dustin Hoffman or Morgan Freeman.
