Charlie Sheen -- You Ain't Comin' Back to 'Men'

3/23/2011 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

There is "no chance" of Charlie Sheen coming back to "Two and a Half Men" -- this according to sources connected to the production of the show.

A story has been circulating that CBS wants Charlie back on the show. Fact is ... Charlie was hired by Warner Bros. and, as TMZ first reported, fired by Warner Bros. Only Warner Bros. can bring him back, and sources directly connected to the production tell us there is "no chance" of that happening.

"Men" creator and executive producer Chuck Lorre has been holding meetings about the future of the show and possible re-casting, but Charlie is history.

The story that CBS offered him his job back is simply bogus.  CBS can't rehire Sheen -- period.

Hey the rock, Michael Lohan faked his arm slashes just like he did back in October, 2010, TMZ has the story from back then when he claimed a stalker slashed him.

ML and Charlie Sheen = Lying losers!

Got to keep in mind Sheen lost 16 million for the 8 shows left in the season. Reports say he's made 7 mil so far hyping his road shows. Sheen spent money like crazy. Reports say he is cash poor.

To be able to do what ever you wanted, get in all the trouble and still make 32 million for a TV season, to mess that up. I don't get it.

I can understand why CBS might want Charlie Sheen back working on Two and a Half Men - they made a lot of money off of that show. Problem is that CBS didn't have to work directly with Sheen and didn't have to put up with him showing up wasted on the set and unable to perform.

Warner Bros. did. Chuck Lorre did.

It is really too bad, Sheen was talented and liked by his fans. It is a shame that drugs and alcohol got the best of him.

It must have gotten pretty bad for WB and Lorre to end the relationship - they made a lot of money too. And if there is one thing that Hollywood has proven, they will overlook an awful lot if there is money to be made.

And for the record, The Big Bang Theory is one of the best things on TV today. They have a talented cast and crew, and no drug addicts.

@jim, your right. Sheen didn't expect to get fired, he felt he was way to big. No me no show. Pay me 3 mil an episode than I'll come back. No. Your fired. These guys simply got fed up with him, money or not.

Sheen cut his nose to spite his face. His ego is getting way out of hand. Sheen is not the rock star he thinks he is.

I wish him well but I think he will burn out very quickly.

I finally took a look at some of the Charlie Sheen videos everyone has been talking about. Pretty sad and shocking but all a part of life. This post is about my experience with Bi-Polar disorder, my own depression, and finding that middle ground again.

BiPolar disorder especially the mania is intelligent, deceptive, and has a lot of energy. The Real-Time Technique is a tool that has helped many suffering from BiPolar, check it out now. http://bit.ly/BiPolarRTT

It´s just matter of time for a new show for Charlie Sheen. For 2&HM there is no coming back in the charts w/o SC. The other two Lorre's productions are´nt bad but nothing like 2&HM.

Man I'll sorely miss the show. Fir me it was my daily dose of funny injection after coming tired from office. And without Sheen the show will lose some of its charm even if they replace him.

Most of this is just ridiculous.

That show lasted for 8 years. How many other sitcoms can say the same? You can probably count them on one hand.

That $2 mil per episode? Charlie will probably end up earning far more off the reruns of each and every one of those past episodes. Anytime they're run on ANY station, anywhere, he gets a cut, and will continue doing so, probably for the next 20 years or more.

He'll be earning more than enough money to support himself in the lap of luxury for the rest of his life, whether he goes back to work, or not.

So even if he never works again, he's still winning. Residual income is a wonderful thing.

Alot of celebs write their own publicity. Problem with Charlie is he believes it too.

Anybody would be better then idiot. What kind of acting is he showing ??? I am surprised they kept him this long. Everybody on the show is better then him.
He is an idiot and people that are watching him are deranged too.
Idiots are glamorizing druggies alcoholics whores (he fits in every categories) but nobody is talking about families living in the cars on the streets - kids in USA not having anything to eat - but no we have to read about SOB who spends millions on drugs alcohol and whores! And that's thanks to American people that are enable him to get paid this utterly idiotic salary.
I would like to ask all this people that are watching him how much money do they make a week/month/Year???
Boycott the SOB and then will see how much is he going to spend on whores drags and alcohol!!!!!
