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.

A "tell-all"?? What HASN'T he "told" already?

I agree, this is withdrawal talking. Besides, "Sheen" is probably illiterate.

WHO CARES?!    

I say we all sit back and watch the "train wreck" at 10pm Tuesday night.

We all know what the wreck sounds like after last Thursday...FINALLY we get to "see" it! This is great!

BTW- If he really has been "clean" through all this? Then I don't want be a "Silent Assassin" in his octagon of war anymore. He makes it sound like the position comes with a paid "prescription" plan. I know it doesn't have dental. Darn and I took time off work.

I doubt that was Charlie's urine. Did they do DNA, or just accept pee in a bottle with a label saying "Charlie's Pee" on it?

No one is worth 1 mil a show and it seems Charlies head has gotten to big...I feel for the other cast, but they just need to cancel the show and be done with it...

So someone who's the star of a multi year productin that will gross several billions of dollars over the course of first-run and syndication, isn't worth paying a million a show for?

Well it's not hard to figure out why your not a wildly wealthy Hollywood executive!

Charlie-you've finally succeeded in pickling your brain. Any woman who wants to be with you now is only in it for your money. You are truly whacked

Keith Richards got $7-million and he had a lifetime of interesting stories. Who cares about Charlie Sheen? It's not worth a dime.

I am observing all this from a little, little country in Europe called Austria - for those of you playing the home game - it's where Christoph Waltz (Col. Landa in Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds; again: home game)is from. And even though I do not really care about the show being funny or unfunny: who are we to judge Charlie Sheen ? Why is every negative comment in here directed at him ? Like he said in the interview, if Chuck Lorre didn't approve of his antics, why did was he always hired back ? Because he always acted like a professional on the set ? Sorry, but no golden cigar there. You either support your main character all the way through, or keep him at bay by, gee, say, threatening to cut his salary or you simply fire him and thus cancel the show (or make up some lame back-story to introduce another new character to stay with Alan & Jack). But supporting until now, and even raising his salary when one is aware of Mr. Sheen's behaviour ? That doesn't sound like good will or supporting your main star; that sounds like greed. Clearly Mr. Lorre has looked one too many, now Mr. Sheen thinks he can do whatever he wants... or can he ? And if so, if the laughter stopped sometime off-camera, how come the entire crew is publishing the shows BLOOPERS where obviously everyone gets along ?

At this point, don't think ANYONE in the entertainment industry or publishing would touch charlie sheen with a 10-foot pole.
