Sheen's Lawyer: Warner Bros. Hypocritical

3/1/2011 10:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen's lawyer tells TMZ ... Warner Bros. is two-faced about "Two and a Half Men" and he's getting ready to pursue legal action.

TMZ broke the story ... legal pit bull Marty Singer fired off a demand letter to Warner Bros. and CBS, demanding that Charlie be paid for the remaining episodes that were canceled this season ... or else.

Singer claims it's ridiculous to think Warner Bros. axed the episodes because of Charlie's behavior.  Singer says, "Warner Bros. had no problem last year when it looked like Charlie might plead guilty to a felony," referring to the domestic violence case in Aspen involving Brooke Mueller.

Singer adds, "Warner Bros. made it clear they wanted Charlie back for two more years, even with the prospect that he could go to jail.  They made a deal with him while the charges were pending."

Singer goes on, "But now that Charlie made some disparaging comments about the show runner who had refused to work ... they made a decision not to proceed with the show this year.  It's outrageous."

Singer believes Warner Bros. is cow-towing to Lorre because he produces lots of shows for them.

And Singer says, If Warner Bros. doesn't pay Charlie, "we're going to pursue all legal options."

Warner Bros. had no comment.

Comedies are funny.

The words greedy and delusional spring to mind. He can soon be replaced. Pay him for what he's under contract for then get rid of him.

WB has to pay him. Chucky pulled the plug not CS. No morality clause, gave him a raise during his legal troubles. CS will get paid, but he's blackballed guaranteed.

what He said    

Exactly Mr. Singer! My sentiments exactly. Lorre is an enabler until Charlie says something he doesn't like.

Hi, Marty? Charlie here. Listen, will you give those guys at TMZ a call? Normally I'd have Stan do it, but I fired him this morning.

what He said    

So obvious Men has been enabling Charlie's bad behavior for a long time. Then give him the axe upon 'Chuck' getting wild hair up his ass. That's no way to treat Charlie!

Every year Charlie Sheens dad would go to the VA in Tucson and plant rose bushes for the vets.
His dad is a really nice man and very personable. Charlie take a trip to the VA and follow your dads footsteps. You would put a lot of smiles on some really sick people.

Hey #11 Tokie (good code name Charlie!) But if you are going to use another name, try and change your pattern of writing so it doesn't sound like someone 'insane'... ie, yourself, Charlie Sheen. I know you are WINNING so why are you on TMZ with us other losers at 1:15 a.m. I thought you were WINNING with all your porn stars??? Aparently you are not so WINNING in the sack, or so I've heard.

I saw an exclusive photo of you WINNING here that I couldn't believe! http://girlsandcorpses.com/print12/charlie.html

Comment Ads Suck    

Still trying to figure out what Charlie has on the 2-1/2 Men crew that would make CBS/WB flinch. He was insubordinate to his bosses and unless SAG has a grievance protocol that CBS/WB refused to follow, I don't see what Charlie can sue over. Also, is it in Charlie's contract to get paid for unmade episodes?

It doesn't add up. Something's not being said. That or Charlie's completely turned into Caligula, god-complex and all.

Tokie, I guarentee his acting days are done. They will pay him to go away, he will be replaced, they will do another season so they don't get burned on the syndication deal. He will be too expensive to insure on any future project. I will bet anything that's how it will go down. But at least he still has his residual checks coming in.
