It sounds like comedian Charlie Sheen is winning again after he finally reached a settlement agreement with Warner Brothers over the ‘Two and a Half Men’ dispute.
Sheen will be paid handsomely for ‘Two and a Half Men’ going into syndication, receiving an immediate payout of $25 million and ending up with a total of $100 million in profits from the show.
Charlie was famously fired from the show after having a very public dispute with the show’s creator Chuck Lorre. Lorre removed Sheen’s character completely from the show and replaced him with ‘Punk’d’ star Ashton Kutcher.
While Charlie was at the Emmy Awards show on Sunday he gave a short heartfelt speech wishing the cast and crew of the show nothing but the best. He said; “I want to take a moment to get something off my chest and to say a few words to everybody here from Two and a Half Men. From the bottom of my heart I wish you nothing but the best for the upcoming season. We spent eight wonderful years together and I know you will continue to make great television.”
Backstage at the Emmys, Sheen met Ashton for the first time and the two got on well. Afterward they sent public messages to each other on Twitter wishing each other luck.
Did you watch the premiere of ‘Two and a Half Men’ on Monday night? Do you like Ashton better then Charlie or would you rather see Sheen back on the show? Leave us your comments and tell us who you prefer.
