Members of the crew tell TMZ .... they were told "Men" creator Chuck Lorre spearheaded the move, got Warner Bros. on board and as a result more than 100 people will be getting their paychecks.

Members of the crew estimate they will collectively get around $2 million for the 4 weeks of work.

One crew member tells us he and his colleagues are "ecstatic."

Warner Bros. had no comment.

"So they better pay Sheen. They have absolutely zero reason not to pay Sheen for those four episodes. If the crew gets paid Sheen has to get paid. Plain and simple"

They have plenty of reason. Charlie was the source of the disturbance which led to shutting down production. Morals clause or not, he wasn't ready to film at the scheduled time because of his rehab. I'm not talking about when he WAS ready. He was supposed to have filmed earlier and couldn't do it. Depending on terms, that alone could be a breach and enable CBS/Warner Bros. to not be responsible for paying Charlie for remaining episodes.

The crew had NOTHING to do with production getting shut down so they are entitled to payment. It's THAT simple.

I thinki they should run the show without charlie.It could be funny with just the rest of the actors.Charlie needs some serious help.He's just so far gone on what he's doing he isn't going to get help unless someone commits him. I feel for his fellow actors and his family. I hope he wakes up soon.

As much as I LOVE Charlie in this series he needs a hard dose of reality. He is clearly still using whatever it is he is. He needs to wake up to how his fans really feel. We all wish he would 'clean up his act'. I wish all fans would ignore him until he is 'clean', until then we are all enablers. My prayers go out to his family as they are the ones that are having the hardest time with all of what is going on. georgia from la habra.

Great Move ! Charlie is pathetic and a real loser. The supporting cast was the backbone of the show; the writers are brilliant ! A few tweaks here and there to tke plotline and maybe a new castmember and the show will be good to go with rhe many ta;ented performers on board. The plois were getting a little forced anyway with Charlie looking so dissipated and not able to attract all tkose girls , really

Down with the junkie Estevez.
If the show will start again. we do not want to see any of the ridiculous bowling shirts. I suggest not to replace Charlie with another actor. but arrange the plot to the idea Charlie is not here any more.You will see that the show with the remaining actors will be a hit.
