Charlie Sheen

Ashton SAVED My Career!

8/8/2011 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen
is extremely grateful that Ashton Kutcher replaced him on "Two and a Half Men" -- telling TMZ, if Ashton hadn't taken his old spot ... Charlie would never have been able to kick-start his career.

According to Charlie, his funeral on the show just adds some closure to the story -- telling us, “I have always been told that I have 9 lives, so it is going to be amazing to witness my own funeral which is clearly a win/win situation because Ashton has just given me a 10th."

As we previously reported, Charlie is making a huge comeback after "Men" -- announcing his brand new TV project based on "Anger Management."

But something tells us, Ashton won't be getting a "Thank You" letter in the mail.

Ashton won't be able to carry the role. Sheen has the talent to be able to do the new show as long as he keeps himself clean and gets some professional mental health help. Those are just the facts of it. No spin can say different.

I have to agree that Ashton Kitcher is a poor choice in casting. Whenever I see him I can't help but be revolted by the fact he is actuallt shlepping that old wahed up and hammered out surgery victim, Demi Moore. EEEEW! Moreover, Ashton's chronic tweets are moronic.

Sheen is a moron. Ashton didnt take the roll from Charlie so Charlie could "jump start" his career. Charlie was fired and Ashton is a new character on the show. Whatever mess Charlie is doing now would happen whether Ashton took the job or not.


ps- Charlie, your new show isnt in production AND nobody has offered to pick it up. Let's see how far this thing goes.

Sheen is full of crap. Sheen isn't grateful for anything. He got his butt fired knows he screwed himself big time and blamed and publically badmouthed everyone for his own stupid actions that got him fired in the first place.

When Sheen publically badmouthed Chuck Lorres family, thats when Lorre, CBS and WB put out a public letter and Sheens contract stating why Sheen was fired. They had all the dates, times, incidents all the times they went out of their way to help Sheen which he turned down. Sheen wasted on the set, production shut downs and so fourth. The lawsuit is going nowhere.

So far everything Sheen has done has backfired on him big time. They gave Sheen enough rope to hang himself and he did. That's the real torpedo of truth. The TV project is just that a project. No network or cable has picked it up.

It better be one f*cking massive comeback with the amount of free publicity TMZ has been giving Charlie Sheen.

Yeah, right. Like the wildly successful "Torpedo of Truth" tour. He's just trying to save face. I will not be watching his show about...whatever it's about.

Charlie Sheen is a disgrace and should be thinking about his children and stop his distructive lifestyle.
I stopped watching 2 and a half men a long time ago. And the only 2 charactors I loved on the show was the housekeeper and the mother.

Charlie Sheen has very good reason for Ashton Kutcher to succeed. Charlie collects heavy duty residuals for his stint on the show. It behooves him to make sure the show is successful for a very long time.

Sheen trying to save face, now that's funny. He burned alot of bridges.

There is no comeback. A comeback is if the show is actually picked up, aired and successful. Not even close. So far no takers network or cable. After what Sheen did, who would want to take that risk?

Oh BULL. Sheen was done long ago.

He just hasn't realized it yet.

It will come to him slowly, as he is not too swift and acts as though he is at least one brick short of a load.

Charlie was great on that show...until his final season.He looked like he'd completely gone over the edge.His hair and skin looked bad and he seemed high on camera. I don't know if the show will work with Kutcher, but Charlie is finito in that town.When are people going to get that drugs and alcohol in excess are a bad idea?

Charlie is very smart to take the high road--makes Lorre look like a fool with his funeral stunt.
