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.

The show 'used to be funny', but seriously it just isn't anymore.
Come on! a maniquin husband for Rose??? stupid!! and 2 second appearances by Charlie Sheen? The last few shows have been ALL about Alan. Plus Charlie just looks like he's high on crack! Remember when Tom Arnold used to be all high on the Rozanne show? I hate that!! He looks like something the cat drug in!
I think he used to have some real talent, but now...not so much. and the story lines are pathetic. I'd rather watch Golden Girl reruns. He needs to get help..and get off TV.
AND, we all know if a female TV star was doing All this, the big tv execs wouldn't put up with it for a sec. But Charlie...yeah that's OK. Two and a Half Men is half the show it used to be..

Hollywood rewards actors with bad behavior. It seems to me that whenever you do drungs to get a movie or a sitcom. It's ludicrous. It disgusts me! Sheehan makes more money then we will ever see in our lifetime as does Morton Downey , Lindsy Lowen. Just go out and do drugs and you get the part.

I absolutely do not allow that drivel in my house. Charlie Sheen is a pig, plain and simple.

Why anyone would watch that foolish pig is beyond me. I would never want my children to watch him. They would think that his disgusting behavior is acceptable. He doesn't need rehab. He needs to be sentanced to a LONG LONG prison term. The outside world would be much safer and he could have all the sex he ever wanted there. THey will be lining up to spend time with the little beoch.

Charlie you are just another FN Hollywood ahole who got too big for his britches. You will probably be found toe's up somewhere like the others that have gone before you. And when they find you it will be your final announcement to the world that " yes I am a looser"

Just read my statement--please excuse the writing--I was in a hurry. I meant to say Hollywood rewards these idiots for bad behavour. I will never watch Sheen and haven't for a long time. Lohen is another one. I read somewhere that she might be on DWTS. I will NEVER watch that show again should she show up. How about the morals? Young people watch Sheen every week. There is a young man on the show who sees this. Some of his lines are way out of there also for a young man. I guess it's all about money.

Charlie, c'mon and behave yourself. Do you know how many people watch your show and love it. And still love you in spite if yourself? I disagree with the people who say you look bad on the show. You are a professional and do a great job on the show I did notice that you weren't on it very much in last night's episode but I still thought it was a great episode. Jon Cryer does a great job as does everybody on the show. Don't you think you owe it to your fellow actors to get your act together; get to rehab; get youself healthy, and make the show even greater than it was.....That's my hope for you and I don't kinow you; have never met you; but I think you are a very good actor.

Why don't they lose Charlie and make "Allan" the star. In my opinion, he is the better actor anyway. I also like the part of their mother and the "kid" is good. Charlie could take a permanent vacation/job in Europe and Allan could continue to live on the beach in his house! Or replace "Charlie" with a long/lost brother. Sad that other actors will lose their jobs if show is cancelled.

i think *Men*, could survive without charlie-i also think his real life brother emilio could replace him. The new show Mike & MOlly, is a HUGE hit, very funny show, it has the same creator/writer as *Men* does, it's the next BIG hit for that station-the show last night was the best>Hillarious...i am so over charlie & his personal issues, either fix him, fire him, or replace him--straighten the H-LL up already!!!!

Who cares what Charlie or any other "Celebs" do ... they are on TV & movies for our entertainment.. what they do on their own time, is their own business, let it be & just watch the shows, I hope they do not nix "Two & a Half Men" i love it.
