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.

Charlie sheen lived this way long before two and a half men, and will do so long after it's over and he moves on to something else. Errol Flynn was thought to be washed up, then he came back and played a drunk-it was a hit! Charlie Sheen is no Errol Flynn, but he makes more in one episode than Errol made in most of his career. They should do a show that kills off that kid, just call it "Men" which they do anyway, fix Nikki Cox back to the way she was 10 years ago, and put her in. She should drop Jay Mohr. Owen Wilson is a poor man's Matthew Macconahey, and Jay mohr is a poor man's Owen Wilson. Those three should play brothers, the cool one-the copier- and the retarded tag along! Wow can I get off topic. Oh yeah, charlie sheen-who cares, don't like it don't watch. People raising a stink about morality on sheen, mel gibson, Lindsey Lohan. Shut up, you waste everybody's time.

Hey Charlie that's real nice of you to help UNemploy hundreds of people for YOUR SELFISH antics. Your a pig and you should have been put out a long time ago. If the show goes down due to him and I was contracted on it, I'd be suing HIM! These people should NEVER HIRE HIM AGAIN FOR ANYTHING!! He's nothing but trouble and will always be!

The Devil himself blessed Charlie and it probably won't be too long before the payament comes due. The man lives for himself only and serves no purpose other than himself.

The content of this show; like many,is not for kids. Control should be put on "men" like any other aiming at an adult audience. That being said, I expect one thing from Charlie Sheen. A believable performance that is entertaining. What he does with his private life is none of my business nor concern. For his own well being, I hope that he guards his health better than he has in the past. This however is his choice, and his alone to make. I will continue to watch the show because it is funny. Everyone on the show has their moments of humor even if some of the story lines are a little worn.

Seriously, for those of us that enjoy the show, I could care less what the stars of the show do on their own time. For those of you that say that it should be canceled because of the message it gives your children...why would any responsible parent allow their child to watch it???!!!
Its called entertainment. You either like it or change the channel. Quit blaming others for your lack of parental control and mind your own business. How would you like it if your life was critiqued by millions of people. I'm not saying that I approved of what he has allegedly done but he's not my role model.

I just don't get it. What is wrong with everyone? Charlie Sheen has a disease that is killing him. He needs to get help, but only he can make that decision when he is ready. I pray it won't be too late. Why all the hatred & making fun of him? I'm sure everyone has someone they care about or love that has the same problem & you don't laugh about it. Maybe some of you have lost someone you love to this problem. Stop jumping on the bandwagon of hate & all of us should hope he will get the help he needs.

That show would go down the drain without Charlie. It is a bighit and a lot of people watch both new and reruns.
