Sheen

Shopping Book Deal --

Starting Bid $10 Mil

2/26/2011 5:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen tells TMZ he's writing a tell-all book about life on the set of "Two and a Half Men" -- with details about what led up to the final implosion -- and he wants at least $10 mil for the publishing rights.

Charlie Sheen Book Deal
Sheen tells us he wants the world to know what really happened behind-the-scenes of the show during his 8-year run ... the good times and the bad ... and he plans on naming names -- including co-stars.

We're told Sheen even has a title in mind -- "When the Laughter Stopped."

Sheen says even though he's still working on the book -- he's expecting a bidding war for the publishing rights ... starting around $10 mil.

As TMZ first reported, "Men" honchos shut down production for the season after Charlie told us he wanted to fight creator Chuck Lorre.

Just saw the drug test photos on Radar LOL! Does Charlie have a gold tooth and then a big gap where he's missing a tooth? Why doesn't he get that fixed?

So Charlie waits until being "layed off" NOT "layed" to tell us he was suffering from WORKPLACE BULLYING !!

A person with about 35 years of legal experience in the Los Angeles area and one who has worked for several hundred law firms, mostly in the area of litigatiaon. I am not familiar with Charlie's contract, but I have heard there is no morals clause or other legal grounds to cancel the show as long as he is able to show up for work. His rant, while obnoxious, did not contain an actual threat, at least from the parts of it that I heard. I think he and his bosses just have a game of chicken going at this point. Also, I believe his lawyer is Marty Singer. I would not want to be on the opposite site of Marty Singer.

530 Moonbeam Marty Singer or not, there are several contracts in place here, one of which is between CBS and the production company. While I have not read that either, I would bet my golf clubs that it contains language allowing CBS to either call "default" or pull the plug. CBS never proceeds on any projects without those options, among many others. There's no morals or turpitude required, merely lack of performance.
It gets a little more complex on the second level - WB, Tannenbaum Co., Charlie's contract and the default provisions therein, if any. My belief is that there are any number of interested/aggrieved parties out there - crew, vendors, subs - who knows?
There's gonna be a ton of litigation before it's over. You and I likely know each other and could work on this case at Quinn or Skadden or Latham.

WHO CARES?!    

Groovypet, Groovypet, Groovypet...where have you been.

Hello, thirty six hour drinking binge.
Flying his lonely private jet around the world looking down at the rest of us.
Watching old movies of himself in his theatre with old, washed up, strung out base ball players.
Spending money on drugs and prostitutes.
And have you already forgotton about "The War". It takes time to organize your "Silent Assassins" and plan your attack on your enemies.

He doesn't have time to worry about his wardrope... or that his teeth are falling out. "Winning!!"

Never join the sheep in a witch hunt. Never a grab a torch in a monster movie. And never side against bad boys fallen from grace in Hollywood. For it's full of rogues and cutthroats at the top whose stress often reduces the talent to party animals off the set. In fact, the higher the showbiz rank, authority and paycheck, the more ego-maniacal, obnoxious and guilty they are of being A-holes. Now proceed with the trial by TMZ message board while good time Charlie plows his porn holes. Carry on, Sheen. It's bedtime and back to 9-5, you holier than thou judgment losers. LOL!

Charlee Sheen just destroyed his career publically, don't give him anymore airtime his EGO is soaking up all this. I am born and raised in LA and the bigger problem here is that these actors think they get second chances, ever sence Robert Downey Jr. we reward him and so many others and now all actors think they are above it all, And then the ones who need it the Lindsay and the Britney's are srutinized and camera follow waiting for them to crumble, take the camera off these people, they are obviously sick and it's sad to make them spectacles, let him crawl away and die like all other addicts in the world have to so he hits bottom, maybe he lives maybe not, but the cameras rolling makes it worse.

Seems to me they could make those last 4 shows and make as much on ads as the Superbowl right now. EVERYBODY would watch...with or without Charlie.
They are missing out on a goldmine here!!

Seems Sheen can't get along with anyone, Denise, Brooke, his bosses. Yup, everyone else in the whole world has the problems and nothing wrong with fortuna's favorite Carlos. Good Luck with the book Charlie, I'll wait for the Cliff notes. The problem is that we already know how the long drawn out story goes!
