Chuck Lorre

Born – October 18, 1952
Long Island, New York, U.S.
Birth name – Charles Michael Levine

Writer/producer/Charlie Sheen's nemesis.

Was a writer for "Roseanne," created a bunch of shows, including "Grace Under Fire," "Cybill" and "Dharma & Greg." Remember "Dharma & Greg?" No? Okay then, let's move on.

Created “Two and a Half Men" in 2003, then created a lot of bad press in 2011 when he got into a public feud with star Charlie Sheen. Fired Sheen, replaced him with Ashton Kutcher, hoped no one would notice.

Known for his vanity cards at the end of his TV shows, which he uses to share his thoughts on life and his hatred for Charlie Sheen.

Fun Fact: Co-composed the soundtrack to the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” cartoon. No, seriously.
