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.

My whole family watches the show...we look forward to it every week and also watches reruns during the week. It's the funniest and most entertaining show on TV. It would really be sad if it was taken off. Sooooo please keep it going!!! Charlie Sheen, his brother and Jake are Great. The housekeeper is also hilarious.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, and who/why would anyone give a rat's azz. He seems to be just another bar fly boozer, dope addict, woman abuser and an all around low life who, by the grace of God, was given a lot of talent to blow in the end. He's amassed fortune used to squander away feeding his abusive lifestyle. I'd bet money that in person he's one obnoxious, snooty butt wipe who's a legend in his own mind. He WAS a good actor, but he's not all that and I hope CBS dumps him and the show. I'd hate it for the rest of the cast/crew, but not one bit for "Sir Charles." He deserves not one bit of pity because he's had chance after chance only to finish where he started...nowhere.

I love this show, but I was watching last night and I noticed how skinny and old Charlie looks. He really is abusing himself. It is a real shame that some actors are so messed up that they self destruct and that is what Charlie is doing. It has had a good thing and he is going to mess all of it up by choosing drugs and alcohol. I wish that he would get the help that he needs. What a waste.....Oh and who said that this show should be a role model?

The show quit being funny years ago. Now it's just an embarassment. If there was a way to keep it going without the characters of Charlie and Alan, it would be a big improvement.

To those who support Sheen and Lohan bad behavior off-stage, and to those Televisions sponsors who look the other way, you all can kiss my ASS before I condone ANYONE who supports Sick Behavior. Oh yeah let's reward these HOLLYWOOD JERKS and look the other way. You two sickos blew it - now STAY HOME and make way for your replacement!

for 1: yes, get off your high horses. its none of your cotton-picking business what he does.
2: voyeurs need to get hobbies besides standing on their stilts pointing and staring...its his life to live as he so chooses-his body too. his career to destroy. you act like what he does directly affects you, or you care, which we all know you don't.
3: only one actor can (must!) do this if sheen bows out

Anyone with that amount of fame, that amount of cash and that amount of future potential...

Pissing away his gifts, his life, his future and his money.

At the end of it all: A total waste and a total failure?

As an example, his salary could pay for a cleft Palate operation for almost every single kid in the world.

And he prefers f=====out hookers and cocaine.

So it goes. Another good one down the drain.

This show portrays an American bachelor as the lowest s*** of the earth. It's not funny, it's digusting. As a woman I would never, ever entertain the idea of being with a s***bag like Charlie. He is a digusting narcisstic pig, makes all men look bad by association and furthermore what they have subjected Angus (as Jake) to borders on child abuse. As a parent we want to protect our kids FROM people like this, no idolize them.

Sorry Les, but Charlie is not a "young actor throwing his life away". He is a middle-aged man that refuss to grow up. He has a choice. Granted with alcohol, it's not that easy, but people that wanted to kick it could by getting help thru proper organizations. But first, they have to make the choice. It is sickening to see a grown man behave this way. i for one don't want to watch his program because I don't want to support him in any way while he is crazy.

Two and a half Men is one of the funniest shows on. It will be sad if it goes off the air. What's even sadder is a lot of people will be out of work. WAKE THE HELL UP CHARLIE!

Sorry, but Charlie Sheen doesn't deserve to have the spot on that show anymore. And, by the way, he never deserved that kind of money either. He did the same old thing over and over again and it was boring. Gee, what girl should he screw around with this week? ha ha ha. All that he did to his ex-wives, and not being a good dad to his kids, leaves alot of people with alot of bad memories.
I don't see why they can't try out someone to replace Charlie on the show. It couldn't hurt and you never know, it might work. But Charlie is done in my opinion. He's really sick in the head. I hope his parents somehow can get custody of him and take charge of his life until he gets better. And besides, how old is this guy? 48-50? Shouldn't he have grown up by now? He's disgusting.
