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.
