Did you miss him?
Charlie Sheen has inked a new deal with Lionsgate Television to star in a new sitcom that could possibly make him more money than ever.
He won't be getting paid the outrageous $2 million per episode that he received on Two and a Half Men, but he will getting more out of the deal when it comes to syndication. So, if the show is a hit, Charlie will basically be rolling in the dough.
And, in case you were wondering, his role will be similar to his character on Two and a Half Men, but, you guessed it, even raunchier.
By pitching the show to cable networks like TBS, Charlie will have the creative freedom that he's always desired.
"Networks and cable are bidding on the show right now, with TBS being the front runner.
[Lionsgate Television] has committed to ten episodes up front with the option to pick-up and produce 90 more episodes if the ratings prove to be successful. This means the sitcom could be on TV for 8 years, which is a long time! It also means that Charlie will make more money than ever before!"
And if something should happen, like Charlie having a meltdown or something (crazy thought, right??), Lionsgate wouldn't lose so much money since they'll paying less upfront.
Seems like a win-win situation for everyone.
Even though we weren't a fan of the way Charlie handled the whole Men/Chuck Lorre sitch, we will be glad to see back on TV. Having a steady job seems to keep him preoccupied, which means no more
