'Two & A Half Men'

Charlie's OUT of the Picture

6/3/2011 9:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen can officially kiss Warner Bros. goodbye, because they've officially kissed him off by taking down the "Two and a Half Men" poster from the outer wall of the studio.

The billboard went down less than an hour ago and it was replaced by a generic logo for the show.  We're told a picture of the new cast -- with Ashton Kutcher, of course -- will follow soon.

Hey Charlie ... guess Warner Bros. wasn't bluffing.

Charlie Sheen continues to have a fulfilling life and will be able to pick and choose movie roles and TV gigs as they suit him. Charlie already is rich, and will STILL be getting paid under his contract for TAAHM. Go, Charlie!

NO, Charlie will NOT be paid for his contract for TAAHM. He has a snowball's chance in hell of winning the lawsuit with WB. Which I may add could go on for years to come.

Still haven't seen him organize his relief fund raiser for the tornado victims, still no word on the $1. a tix for the Japan disaster. (I'm sure he'd be more than happy to "pose" for publicity shots if he did indeed donate.)

Roxanne, my pic with Charlie wasn't a publicity picture. :) And I notice you haven't included a photo of yourself. I'm sure there's a very good reason for that.

YEP! there is absolutely a reason why....I don't know how.
Congrats to you for "being" a friend. Maybe you could help him with his trips (and donations) to help Haiti, Japan, and the tornado stricken south???

1t will be funny to see chuck begging charlie to come back next year after the ratings drop. jon thinks he will become the money maker. why did lorre offer charlie all the money for two seasons if he did not think the sponsers would pay. ashton is a great actor but he can't act like charlie with his dead pan humor. sorry but that's the way I feel. everyone has their own opinion and i respect that.

The "I don't know how to post my picture" excuse is a flimsy one, at best. It's just as well; I'm sure Charlie and the other men can do without a photo of your mug.

"Charlie Sheen is now telling a few pals that he’s angry with himself about “really screwing things up” with the antics that led the actor to lose his starring role on “Two and a Half Men.”

Apparently, Sheen thinks there is a good chance the new “Men” — with Ashton Kutcher replacing him, but as a new character — could even surpass the huge ratings the TV sitcom snared when he was the star.

A source who should know tells me, “Charlie is a big fan of Ashton’s, but like all actors is extremely competitive. He’s developed a jealousy thing about Ashton, since he knows Ashton is cuter, possibly funnier and over all more hip and cool than he is. He’s developing a typical Charlie obsession about this.”

Charlie Sheen Could End Up a 'Freak Show' Like Mike Tyson or Pee Wee Herman, Expert Says

By Hollie McKay

"Earlier this year, entertainment headlines across the world were dominated by fired “Two And a Half Men” star Charlie Sheen, who embarked on a shocking tirade against his former CBS bosses and in particular, show producer Chuck Lorre.

The Emmy-winning actor sent ratings through the roof on every program from "20/20" to "Good Morning America" to "Today," and Sheen broke a set a record by acquiring one million twitter followers in just over 24 hours after opening an account.

Continuing his “movement,” Sheen launched his own web series entitled “Sheen’s Korner,” where he continued with the nonsensical ranting. And then in April, he kicked off the month-long nationwide tour “My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not an Option,” in conjunction with Live Nation, which earned mixed reviews – standing ovations in some cities, booing and early walk-outs in others.

But now the tour is over. And according to the website IMdB, which lists actors' and directors' upcoming projects, Sheen has nothing planned.

“All of this attention may be fun, but it is not making him any real money, and it won’t," Ronn Torossian, CEO of New York-based firm 5WPR, told FOX411’s Pop Tarts. "If Sheen doesn’t correct his act soon, he’ll end up being a side show like Mike Tyson, Pee Wee Herman or some freak show. It doesn’t need to be that way.”

From porn stars to actresses to 'goddesses,' Charlie Sheen has dated a wide range of ladies over the years.

“It looks like Charlie is finally coming back down to reality, but unfortunately for him, it might be too late. At first, many accepted it as just ‘Sheen being Sheen’ and ate it up, but now, after the thousandth warlock joke and shot at Lorre, it is simply getting old and tiring,” Torossian said. “The short-lived shtick now seems more like a bad reality show than something America will embrace.”

And with the spotlight now facing away from Sheen, and focusing on other celebrity “scandals” such as Arnold Schwarzenegger’s secret love child, some experts are even predicting a possible breakdown for the actor.

“Addicts by nature tend to be very narcissistic, and when that is not fed they can do outrageous things to get the attention they crave,” said Los Angeles-based psychologist Nancy Irwin, who does not treat Sheen.

On that note, Sheen’s display of bizarre behavior has had some ugly ramifications.
After broadcasting his “goddesses” (two live-in girlfriends) to the world child amid the March “media tsunami,” child services were quick to swoop in and remove his twin boys from his L.A mansion – otherwise known as Sober Valley Lodge.

Fast forward a few months and Sheen’s infamous mansion is on the market, one of his lady lovers left the love nest and returned to Indiana (although she later vowed to be back), and on some tour stops he even expressed a desire to get his old sitcom job back, and said he was even willing to apologize.

On other occasions, Sheen announced his intention to return to television on rival network. Not surprisingly, no further details on that (possibly phantom?) project were given. And according to reports, the 45-year-old actor is incredibly “jealous” of his younger “Men” replacement, Ashton Kutcher.

So what could possibly be next for Sheen? He earned $2 million an episode for his leading role on the hit CBS show and was deemed the highest-paid actor in television. His one-man tour has come to an end (although he has speculated about taking it overseas.) Will the controversial screen star ever earn that kind of salary ever again?
For that matter, will he ever even act again?

“There are only two ways Charlie is going to be able to command anything close to that kind of money acting. He will have to start taking lesser paychecks in quality projects – and deliver creatively – to re-prove himself again, or he is going to have to collect big checks on riskier projects and hope audiences show up,” said entertainment expert Scott Huver. “But Hollywood is going to be very cautious of working with Charlie again. He has demonstrated that he is a loose cannon that can publicly turn against his colleagues, and his lifestyle suggests that he may also be an insurance risk – and could seriously derail a comeback project."

Crisis management expert Gene Grabowski of Levick Communications agrees.
“He is probably uninsurable. Anyone producing a show has to protect the interests of a network so that they can recover losses in the event of a catastrophe. He has a much better chance as a supporting player in a cast, but his ego likely will not accept that now,” Grabowski said. “Under the cir***stances, talk radio, especially satellite radio, seems a likelier venue than TV because the barriers to entry are lower than in televisio,n and there is always an audience there for extreme viewpoints. In addition, activist groups that call for boycotting him on TV would not have the same leverage.”
What about reality television?

“At this point, Charlie would not likely want to be one in a group cast, so reality TV does not appear the place for him yet,” Grabowski continued. “But in the future, he no doubt would be welcome in that world.”

However, let’s not forget that somewhere beneath all that self-proclaimed tiger blood and Adonis DNA, there’s actually a critically-acclaimed, incredibly talented actor.
“If Charlie wants to have a legitimate career again he needs to stop with all of the drama, leave the ‘act’ behind," Torossian said. "Just stick to what made him popular in the first place -- acting."

Leida, I hope you're right. It might be just what TAAHM needs to resurrect itself from certain demise sans Charlie Sheen.
