Charlie Sheen

Settlement with Warner Bros.

North of $100 Million

Charlie Sheen will immediately get $25 million in his settlement with Warner Bros. in his "Two and a Half Men" dispute -- but over time he'll get 5 times that amount ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with the settlement tell TMZ ... Charlie will get the $25 mil in about two weeks and, as we reported, the sum represents the monies owed him for the work he already performed on the series and the profits that have already accrued.

But Charlie has shot around 180 episodes for the show, and in the next 7 - 10 years, the settlement will produce $100 million for the actor in syndication profits. 

Not bad when you don't have to show up for work.

nice big number, but it doesn't sound like he's getting paid a penny more than what he's already owed for the existing episodes.

He should use the money to pay everyone back who went to see the trainwreck that was the 'winning tour'.

CBS & Warner Bros., got this one right - they are settling because all they really want is for this LOSER to just go away ... he more of a liability than an asset and just paying him off to go away ... makes more sense then giving him any more FREE publicity at their expense. Unfortunately, CBS really didn't have much of a choice if the contracts are correct and he is truly owed the money even if he is fired and or release from his current contract like MJFox did with his contracts during his last tv show. However they work this one out ... they would be wise to just keep it to a minimum as possible and leave it alone ... he is just a loser and while many may think he is WINNING he is still unemployed as far as we know it unless they finally start talking about the 'Anger Management' show off the ground ... if ever ... I think Chuckles just made that one up! LOL! LOSING!

The show absolutely SUCKED!! The only 2 parts that were even remotely funny were the beginning scene which was about Charlie and Dharma & Greg.. That is it. Charlie Sheen made this show, and i'm sorry but Ashton is just not funny. The only times i thought he was was when he was on That 70s show
& that movie Just married. His "comedy" is just always extremely childish.. He's nice to look at somewhat, but it will not last long. What they should have done was either pull the plug on the show, or Chuck Lorre..

HEY TMZ, listen to me & get your people to pass this along to the people in charge of two & a half men.. Ashton's character sucks.. He just isn't funny in a grown up way. There show will tank and they will loose huge income... So with that being said, here's what i think (and they may have even thought of this and set it up that way as a precaution) Since they made it a big deal of they're not showing the body because it exploded (instead of simply not writting in the girls demanding to see it & just saying that it was a closed casket), and then the way Rose was acting all weird while talking, and then how his mom kept saying he was broke, he had 3 mortgages in which when they sell the house they'll be no profit left after paying them all off, they could give Ashton a try and when it starts going downhill (and it WILL), they could say that Ashton's character got back with his love, and moved away giving the house to his friend Alan. Then BAM here comes Charlie Harper!!! Rose could have helped him fake his death because of all the debt that he was in, but since it's paid for now and taken care of, he's back!!!!! Because without Charlie Sheen, this show just sucks. He MADE that show..
