Warner Bros.

Has 'Anger Management' Issues

With Charlie Sheen

Warner Bros
. has fired off a cease and desist letter to Charlie Sheen and just about everyone else associated with his new TV show, claiming they're ripping off "Two and a Half Men" to sell "Anger Management."

Warner Bros. is pissed off because Charlie and company used "Two and a Half Men" photos in promotional material at a recent TV convention at the "Anger Management" booth. The purpose of the convention is to sell TV shows, and Warner Bros. is bent out of shape that Charlie and his team would have the audacity to use "Men" photos to help a competitor.

FYI -- one of the photos (above) shows bad-ass Charlie on a chopper ... before he blasted "Men" creator Chuck Lorre, calling him "a contaminated little maggot" and a "turd."

God we miss him.

My last comment was meant to be a response to St James III.
Anyway, I'm surprised Sheen would use that photo. I thought it was good riddance to the bowling shirts.

Well, sorry the new two and half men sucks without charlie, should have thought about that before you fired him. HE WAS THE SHOW. I'll will be watching the new Anger Management Show, with Charlie and not 2.1/2 men ever again. You jumped the shark. Love ya Charlie.

Lets face it Men is not the same anymore without Charlie the Shark. Welcome his comeback. Would like him to come out in another Three Muskateers or Young Guns type of movie. Maybe a more up to speed in time kind a Movie.

I hope they place 'Anger Management' in the same time slot as 2½ Men. Let's take the gloves off!

Just say No to drugs... except pot    

Charlie Sheen is 10 times better than Ashton Kutcher!

Anger Management would crush 2 and a 1/2 Unfunny Men.

Too funny. Whatsa matter Chuck Lorre? Just trying to stay with the "I'm a little b1tch routine". Move on, Charlie has. Just because all of your shows suck, feeling the pinch in your wallet?

Wouldn't it be funny if Charlie filed stalking charges against Warners?

Smart move by Sheen and company. What better way to promote your show than to reignite the 2-1/2 Men controversy and get your old network to make a stink about the new show.

Charlie is a natural. I am looking forward to his new show. Two and a Half men without him is not worth viewing. Ashton has no chemistry with John Cryer or the other actors. His new British girlfriend doesn't have chemistry with anyone either. The original characters are trying real hard to carry the show, but failing miserably. John Stamos had chemistry which was demonstrated on his brief walk on role in the season premier. Let Charlie go so that we can find him and get back to our laughter. His personal life is his own, he is a talented individual. As for me, I need my Sheen fix.
