Being fired from Two and a Half Men may actually be a relief to Charlie Sheen because apparently he “didn’t like that show anyway.”
“I didn’t like that show anyway or those dumb bowling shirts they made me wear,” Charlie said of being fired in a statement to NBC’s Jeff Rossen. “Now I’m free.”
Yet Charlie still says he plans to sue Two and a Half Men. And Today‘s experts are split over who will win.
“If he was doing his job (prior to the hiatus), the studio can’t say, ‘We didn’t think you were ready to do your job because you didn’t submit (to) us a doctor’s note,’” Linda Kenny-Baden, employment lawyer, told Today. “(Sheen) said, ‘I’m ready to go,’ and if I’m his lawyer, I love this.”
Author Steve Aduabto, however, disagrees.
“Look, I have problems with how Warner Bros. and CBS handled this because I felt they should have stepped in sooner,” Adubato said. “In my mind, what it came down to was the attacks against CBS and Warner Bros. and ultimately, what they decided was (Sheen) looks horrible. He’s presenting himself in a terrible way. That may work in a wacky webcast, or it may work because we have this interest in the way he’s acting right now. But that doesn’t work in a family sitcom, even though he played a character that was a little left of center with his conduct.”
