Charlie Sheen

Days Away From Settling

Over "Two and a Half Men"

Charlie Sheen is days away from settling his mega-dispute with Warner Bros. over "Two and a Half Men," but sources connected with the negotiation tell us ... Charlie is not getting what he wants.

Our sources say Charlie will NOT get paid for future episodes -- that's something his legal team insisted he was entitled to based on his deal with Warner Bros.  

As for what Charlie will get ... we're told it's around $25 million, but most of that is money that he's already owed for episodes that he shot and profits from the show that have already accrued.  When Charlie got fired from the show, the suits at Warner Bros. stopped paying him -- this settlement is essentially making all the money matters current.

Charlie will still get syndication money in the future for the shows in which he appeared, so the gravy train is still rolling down the track.

But Ashton Kutcher's success will not line Charlie's bank account.

He does need the money.
110K/month in child support. 2 new houses and associated upkeep. He must have an incredible amount salted away, because he is burning through money quickly.
Good on him for getting the payout though. He seems more settled down emotionally these days.

Sheen is not close to anything. Another Sheen self-hype. Sheen on the Emmys last night all dressed up, teeth were in, getting in a last dig and bombed. No one was laughing.

Not to worry, Sheen will take credit for the 2.5 men ratings. His roast on Comedy Central will be played over and over.

The reason that Charlie Sheen was so successful is because the show blatantly parodied his real-life vicarious sins.

Ashton Kutcher is a total contrivance, total fiction. Therefore, on friction -- no post-modern, sly, sub-text.

Ashton, you're no Charlie Sheen

I saw the premiere show of Two and a Half Men last night with Ashton. Awful!!!!! Glad Charlie won the lawsuit because he was due the $$$ and Chuckie Boy was just being mean. I hope Charlie's new sobriety stays and Chuckie Boy gets a taste of his own foul medicine. Actually, both of them acted like children in a schoolyard fight and for a time there, I thought Charlie would lose, including his life for the drugs and mania that surrounded him. Charlie was great as the protagonist in the show, I will see how far Ashton comes with the role, but I fear two whiney men will close the doors on the whole project. Charlie needs to come back as a ghost and make even MORE $$$.
