Final Four Episodes Of Two and A Half Men Cut!

| Filed under: TV NewsCharlie Sheen

As you can imagine, the crew is livid.

Let us paint you a picture of this:

You're an average industry Joe, working your butt off on a show as a camera person or a grip. Your salary, just like everyone else's, is based on how many episodes your show churns out a season. Now, imagine that a whopping four episodes was cut. That's a month's work time lost! That's a month's paycheck gone! And this is exactly the horror that is facing the crew of Two and A Half Men.

First, they had to deal with the uncertainty of the show not coming back at all due to Charlie Sheen's latest shenanigans. Now, despite the fact that Charlie seems ready and willing to get back to work (and we use the word "ready" loosely), show creator Chuck Lorre has decided he only wants to shoot four more episodes, then close the season out.

We can see why he's doing it - less episodes means less time dealing with Charlie's antics. But has he ever considered letting Jon Cryer carry an episode? Maybe he and the kid would do alright without Charlie around for a couple of story-lines. Wouldn't it be worth it to try so a hundred or so people don't go a whole month without a paycheck! C'mon!

Such a shame. More hardworking people struggling. Doesn't seem fair.

    I agree, or they should replace Charlie permanently!!

    clearly you have never seen an episode if you are asking "has he ever considered letting Jon Cryer carry an episode?" That would be a dull episode.



  4. 4

    I agree that if they aren't willing to let Charlie come back just yet, let some of the other actors carry a few shows. They have some real talent on this show so no reason not to give them a chance. At least Charlie has also offered to pay 1/3 of the missing salaries if the studio will cough up the other 2/3rd. His share was reported to be around $500,000. If the studio still says no, then hopefully Charlie will still keep his promise. Every little bit will help those losing those that are losing a paycheque.

    So sad for the crew. Too bad they couldn't have written something else in for stupid Charlie. They let him hold the entire operation hostage just for his dumb jokes. I am sure if they would have been a little bit creative they could have come up with something.

    What an asshole (Charlie Sheen)



  7. 7

    I would watch a few episodes without Charlie I think they should do some without him!



  8. 8

    Just because he is doing all this PR does not make Charlie Sheen healthy or free from addiction. You just don't clean up that kind of behavior and addition in two or three weeks. He is just pretending and showing up at places and pretending he's ok. It's his addiction talking.

    Charlie is the star of the show.
    There is no show w/o Charlie.
    -
    The people working on this show have been very lucky to have worked so long, in this industry, on one job.
    -
    "The gravy train ended…but, boy, it was a great ride" is what they should be saying, not griping.
    They should be thanking Charlie for the good run they've had.

    this just goes to show how much your actions can affect people. charlie's complaining about the producers not letting him back, but he's become a liability. now they're stuck in the position of screwing over the crew and people hating them for that, or putting charlie back to work when he clearly is not ready, and is in complete denial about that. not doing drugs for a week is not a sign of progress. i mean come on. it means virtually nothing other than the fact that he knows the world is watching him and still maintains some semblance of common sense that he needs to lay off it for a while. 'progress' would be him paying the crew's salaries in full, admitting he needs to be in rehab for good long time, starting now, throughout the spring and into the summer. and then maybe he can go back to work. that would be progress.

    Yes I feel for the crew… but if Charlie doesnt get better then there is a chance that he will die. I know that is wrong to say, but Charlie is sick. The crew should be rooting for him. If they lose 1 month of work then so be it. It is far better for him to get healthy so they will have the show for a few more years. These people can go on unemployment… I know its not alot of money but it is better then nothing. I personally think that Charlie needs a few months of rehab.



  12. 12

    Maybe Chuck Lorre is sending a message to Charlie: "I've had plenty of hit shows, and I don't need your shit". Charlie was on his way to being a has been (if he wasn't already) when this show came about. He needs it more than C.L. needs him. How long before he goes through his savings?

    Do a few episodes where Charlie Harper goes to jail or gets sent to rehab (the character's a drunk after all). They could probably shoot all his scenes in a single week and edit them in as needed.

    Frankly, I'd love to see the mom highlighted in a few. Maybe she could peition the court for conseratorship and put Charlie on a budget next season. Use the show to show the real Charlie what his life is coming to. Jail, rehab, and an allowance.

    Re: luvs2tango
    Uh, hon. There's usually a LITTLE MORE notice. Most of these guys expected their jobs to end on a certain date, and may have turned down other work because they were expecting their jobs to extend to a certain date. Had there been warning, they could likely have lined up something else. Losing work because of a disaster or death is one thing. To lose work because some guy who makes more in week than you do in a year decides to go on a cocaine and whore binge and become uninsurable is intolerable.



  14. 14

    I agree, let the other actors carry the show and see what happens. I love the actresses that play the mom and the housekeeper. Those two alone would get me to watch a show and not miss Charlie.



  15. 15

    #1 - No, I'm sure there's a clause in Charlie's contract somewhere forbidding shooting episodes without him. Mainly because I believe Jon would have NO trouble carrying the show himself therefore showing what a disposable douche Charlie is.

    #2 Didn't I hear Charlie offered to pay 1/2 their wages for the lost episodes?



  16. 16

    "Fewer episodes", not "less episodes". And, "alright" isn't a word: it's "all right".

    That's a great idea about highlighting the mother and your suggested story!
    I have a mom EXACTLY like her.
    It's a challenge to say the least!!!!!!!!!!!!
    -
    Christina, you just can't plan out cocaine alcohol benders to be more timely and polite to the crew.
    He's a really sick, addicted jerkoff and he's been a timebomb most of his career.
    -
    I'm sure the crew would have preferred a job with Dick Van Dyke and Mary Tyler Moore, but they're still lucky for the longevity they've enjoyed with Charlie, Ducky and Angus T.
    -
    Everyone, have a great Happy Valentine's night with your hunnybunny.

    if I was that grip…I'd have a civil suit against CS for loss of wages due to errant behavior or some other better phrased legal term.

    CS deserves to have the ire of the crew!



  19. 19

    And on a rare occasion, I agree with Perez. Jon Cryer is as incredibly talented as Charlie Sheen is. They can always try introducing another relative who is very much like Charlie. If the audience likes the new character, then why not write Charlie off. This relative can inherit Charlie's money and royalties from his jingles after he dies. A clause in Charlie's will forces the relative to be responsible for Alan and Jake.



  20. 20

    I agree with you. Why can't they have Jon Cryer carry a few episodes?
    Every episode is basically the same thing anyway- Charlie getting drunk and acting like a womanizing manwhore. They need to change it up.



  21. 21

    SHEEN HIMSELF SAYS HE KNEW THE HIATUS WASN'T TO END UNTIL 2/28 (OR 2/29), AND EVERYONE IN THE INDUSTRY KNOWS YOU DON'T DECIDE TO SHOW UP TO SHOOT ON YOUR OWN. THERE'S A CAST AND CREW CALL SHEET, AND EVERYONE ON IT IS NOTIFIED AHEAD OF TIME. SHEEN'S STORY OF BANGING ON THE STUDIO DOOR IS TOTAL LUNACY, THE RAVINGS OF A VERY SICK MAN.



  22. 22

    Snif Snif!
    Poor people who will get paid anyways.
    Perez you are a moron.



  23. 23

    Re: luvs2tango – I agree with you but am nonetheless feeling for the crew. I was let go 18 months ago when my company abruptly closed overnight and no one offered to pay even 1/3 of my salary. They are union and will go to a new show. THats the name of the game when you work in that industry. Hope all the US goes back to work ASAP!!!!



  24. 24

    oh my! they need to do a really dramatic ending where he finally contracts some terminal STD and decides to overdose on crack & booze
    it'd be really close to real life



  25. 25

    WAAA WAAA… cry me a god damn river. Come on…. please… tell the crew to suck it up and deal with it. They make damn good money for being on the hottest show currently on TV and thats for one reason and one reason only…. CHARLIE! They cut 4 now, then all they will do is add 4 more to next season. STFU! how selfish are they… be happy where you are…



  26. 26

    I totes agree with you, Perez. Jon Cryer is fantastic in this show, as are the rest of the supporting cast. I'm positive he could carry more than one episode, for sure! Make Charlie sick, or away on vacation, or whatever. I love this show, I'd hate for one actor to ruin it all for the rest of the crew & staff. It just sucks, what he's doing.



  27. 27

    GOOOD! Now noone in hollywood is gonna want to work with that fucker. Problem solved



  28. 28

    I think the fact that Charlie is willing to help pay the crew's salaries says a hell of a lot about his character. He should be commended for that, and people should lay the hell off and quit judging him.
