Charlie Sheen Wants To Resume Work This Month
According to sources Charlie Sheen wants to get back to work this month on Two And A Half Men. The 45 year old actor remains in rehab but hopes to return to television’s top rated comedy by the end of February. That is a target projection.
The series halted production after Charlie Sheen sought treatment for undisclosed reasons following a 911 call and a brief stay at a Los Angeles hospital last week. According to the 911 call Charlie Sheen was intoxicated and in pain. CBS and series producer Warner Bros. television declined comment on Sheen’s intentions. But decisions about the show aren’t Charlie Sheen’s alone.
Sources say that producers intend to evaluate the situation before deciding whether to resume filming for the season, a person familiar with their plans said Thursday. The person was not authorized to publicly discuss details about the condition of anonymity. With uncertainty over Sheen’s return, CBS intends to use a combination of Two And A Half Men reruns and other sitcoms to fill out its Monday night schedule. The network has two unaired episodes of Men in hand which are to be broadcast February 7th and 14th.
In the past few months Charlie Sheen has had medical issues and other woes that have been preventing him to live a normal life. Although it is uncertain what exactly those issues are. He has been in and out of the hospital a few times and it is only after this last time that he checked into a rehab with the urging of his father and his family. He is supposed to be in rehab for ninety days although this too is uncertain. CBS is doing everything they can to keep him on the show however the show must go on too.
