Judy Greer has signed on for a recurring role on ‘Two and a Half Men’ and TV Guide report that she will be playing the soon-to-be ex-wife of Ashton Kutcher‘s character, Walden Schmidt.
It’s unknown how many episodes Greer, who appeared in an episode of the show back in Season 4 as a love interest for Charlie Sheen‘s character, will appear in but we do know that her character will be named Bridget and is currently going through a divorce from Schmidt.
TV Guide also report that the way Kutcher is introduced is like that “Schmidt buys the home of the recently deceased Charlie Harper. But Schmidt is so needy that he convinces Alan Harper (Jon Cryer) and his son Jake (Angus T. Jones) to stick around.”
Greer and Kutcher have previously worked together on the ABC’s 2008 comedy ‘Miss/Guided’ which he was the executive producer of and even starred on an episode.
What do you think of this casting? I think it’s good, I like her but I wish she would be more than ever just a supporting character, but I hate when actors are reused on the same show as a different character.
Charlie Sheen may be newly single yet again but I doubt he is crying too much because not only did he bang women from Mexico, Australia and Colombia as soon as the relationship ended but he has now signed a new deal to star in a new sitcom and he stands to make more than ever.
RadarOnline are reporting that Sheen has signed a deal with Lionsgate Television to create and star in a new sitcom for them and television networks are already bidding on the show. As for what type of character he will be playing? A source says that his character will be pretty similar to the one he played on ‘Two and a Half Men’ except it will be a lot racier.
The source continues saying “Networks and cable are bidding on the show right now, with TBS being the front runner. TBS recently expanded their comedy division with the acquisition of The Conan O’Brien Show after his fall out with NBC. Plus cable makes more sense because it offers more creative freedom. In other words the show can be raunchier and more outrageous, which is perfect for Charlie! Lionsgate Television will produce the show. They have 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!”
As for money, apparently he will get paid the same #2 million per episode he was receiving on ‘Two and a Half Men’ except he will receive a higher back-end deal which basically means he stands to make a hell of a lot more money but it also means Lionsgate will be at less risk of losing money if the show flops.
Speaking of Sheen’s old gig it’s been revealed that his character Charlie Harper is set to be killed off when ‘Two and a Half Men’ returns to CBS, apparently Chuck Lorre plans to make sure there is no way that Sheen can ever make a return to the show.
TMZ reports that the script has yet to be finalized but it looks like Lorre wants to have Charlie driving a car over a cliff which is kind of ironic considering two of Sheen’s cars went down a cliff on Mulohalland Drive.
Last week it was announced that Ashton Kutcher will be replacing Charlie Sheen for the upcoming season of ‘Two and a Half Men’, but today it’s been announced that his contract is just for one year.
The reason behind this is because back in 2010 CBS renewed the show for season 8 and 9 before Charlie’s meltdown which sent the show into limbo, but now that they have replaced him they will be going ahead with season 9.
This means that if CBS decides to renew the show beyond Season 9 they can either offer Ashton a new contract or they can dump him and look for a replacement. But it also works in his favor because if he decides to quit then he can do so with no issues.
Apparently both CBS and Warner Bros do want to get at least two or three more years out of the show but obviously that will all depends on ratings for the upcoming season.
I’m gonna guess if it does get renewed Ashton will be praying they offer him a new contract because for just this one year he is set to earn around $20 million.
The other day it was reported that CBS were looking to take Charlie Sheen back and start shooting Two and a Half Men again but as I guessed this was a load of crap and there’s no chance in hell he is returning.
TMZ reports that since Warner Bros is the company who hired and then fired Charlie, they are the only ones who can bring him back but a source says there isn’t a chance in hell of this happening.
The future of the show is still in limbo but Chuck Lorre, the creator and executive producer of the show, has been in meetings over either re-casting Charlie or else moving it in a different direction.
In other Charlie Sheen news he has passed a recent drug test that both he and Brooke Mueller were made to take in their custody settlement. Her results haven’t come in yet.
Ok it’s that time of the day when I try my best to catch up with all the latest shenanigans out of Charlie Sheen and to be quite honest I don’t even know where to begin. I suppose I’ll start with after he got fired from Two and a Half Men yesterday he up on a roof waving around a machete and drinking tiger’s Blood.
Not long after it was announced that Charlie had been fired from the show he went on top of a building with the machete and tiger’s blood and started chanting that he is “free at last! free at last!” to a crowd of people that gathered below. After this he then went home and uploaded the latest episode of his UStream show, Sheen’s Korner, which you can watch now:
Next up… it’s been announced that Bree Olson, one of his “goddesses”, has been given a 2-day trial in her DUI case to prove that she wasn’t drink driving in Indiana last month. She was pulled over last month after she crashed her car and when cops gave her a breathalyzer she blew a .19. Her trial will start in June.
Lastly TMZ is reporting that Chuck Lorre, the creator of Two and a Half Men, is in meetings with hopes to continue the show without Sheen. And they are apparently looking at having Rob Lowe replace Sheen. But as TMZ points out, there is two problems with this – Lowe grew up with the Sheen family and he is currently attached to another show. But either way it seems like there still might be hope for Two and a Half Men to stay on air.
I’ll end this post by saying two things: 1. by the time I actually hit publish I’m sure there will be yet another news story about him and 2. if you’re sick of hearing about Charlie Sheen there is now an app for Firefox and Google Chrome that can block his image and name from popping up on your browser, if I didn’t have to write about him I would definitely be using this.
Okay I love a good train-wreck as much as the next person but I seriously can’t keep up with Charlie Sheen, anytime I read something there is a new development. The latest is he has just been fired from Two and a Half Men. Warner Bros released this statement:
“After careful consideration, Warner Bros. Television has terminated Charlie Sheen’s services on Two and a Half Men effective immediately.”
Since he is living in cuckoo land the fact that he has lost a job which pays him $2 million per episode doesn’t faze Sheen at all who spoke to TMZ and said this:
“This is very good news. They continue to be in breach, like so many whales. It is a big day of gladness at the Sober Valley Lodge because now I can take all of their bazillions, never have to look at whatshiscock again and I never have to put on those silly shirts for as long as this warlock exists in the terrestrial dimension.”
TMZ also got their hands on a letter that Warner Bros sent to Sheen’s lawyer which explains why they fired him, in it they said they had every right to fire him and there was a clause in his contract which says they can fire anybody that “commits a felony offense involving moral turpitude,” they also say he appears to be very ill. His lawyer is demanding that they pay him for the eight canceled episodes or else they will sue. Warner Bros say they will counter sue him if he tries.
It’s unclear if Two and a Half Men will be completely canceled or if they will continue on with Charlie Sheen. Either way this whole thing is a mess, I can’t see what happens next.
Charlie Sheen is not making any friends now that he’s gone on the war path against Chuck Lorre, CBS and Warner Brothers. Even though the show has been officially canceled, he has said that he plans on returning to film it today!
Today, however, we’ve learned that the head honchos in charge of the show have banned Charlie from the lot!
A source said, “The top people in the studio’s security department were all called together Friday night, and the word was passed to all the guards: Charlie Sheen is officially banned. If he and his driver show up on Monday — as Charlie has said he would — they are to be turned away. Charlie is not allowed on the lot under any circumstances.”
Reportedly, the order is so strict that they’re not even allowing his car to make a U-turn in the lot, they just have to back up! The source went on to reveal, “Everyone was told not to even let him in far enough that he could make a U-turn and leave. If he approaches the gate, he’ll have to back up to leave, no matter how many cars we may have to move behind him. It’s that serious.”
Charlie responded in kind, saying, “Wow, that’s kind of strange given Peter Roth (WB TV President) always said it was my show that kept the lights on. Doesn’t matter too much because after Wednesday they’ll have to rename Warner Brothers as Charlie’s Brothers. I will fire those clowns and bring in my own team.”
On the “Today” show, he said that he’s underpaid and if he comes back for a new season, they’re going to have to give him three million per episode:
Charlie Sheen has unleashed an epic tirade on “Two And A Half Men” creator, Chuck Lorre. He referred to the show’s creator as “Chaim Levine”, which is the Hebrew translation of Chuck’s name.
Charlie went as far as challenging Chuck to a fight in his “Octagon” and that he “violently hates” him.
CBS and Warner Brothers did the only thing that they could do in that situation and promptly canceled the show. They’re probably still under the impression that Charlie’s rant was fueled by drugs.
Since, there have been reports suggesting that Charlie is an anti-Semite. Charlie wants us all to know that’s not true. Many felt that Charlie’s usage of the Hebrew name was just an attempt to put down Jewish people.
In a new statement, Charlie said, “I was referring to Chuck by his real name, because I wanted to address the man, not the bullsh*t TV persona. So you’re telling me, anytime someone calls me Carlos Estevez, I can claim they are anti-Latino?”
Since today is one of the slowest days ever in the world of celebrity let’s talk about Charlie Sheen kissing his new girlfriend outside of Hipster Kids shop in Westlake Village.
Charlie was apparently back to work and shooting scenes for Two and a Half Men and during smoke breajs he would go outside and kiss his new girlfriend, who he is apparently “100 percent” in love with.
When X17′s photographers asked the name of his new flame he replied with a very nice “none of your f-ing business.” Check out the source for more photos and a video of Charlie smoking and kissing his new girlfriend. I give them a couple of weeks until they break up.

Charlie Sheen has generously agreed to fork over one third of the dough for the crew members who have been out of work due to his latest drama.
Crew members for his show, “Two And A Half Men” were worried about where their next paychecks were going to come from since Charlie is dealing with his drug problem. He has opted to seek treatment at home in the comfort of his mansion, as opposed to checking himself into rehab.
Charlie wants to send a clear message to his “Men” team: He cares. He has agreed to pay a portion of their salaries for the two weeks that he’s taking off to deal with his personal issues.
He says that he’s upset at CBS and Warner Brothers for dropping the paycheck ball, leaving crew members to worry about their bills and other expenses.
TMZ has confirmed … Charlie is saying he is ready to come back to work next week to complete the season. We’re told Charlie is upset that Warner Bros. and show creator Chuck Lorre have not offered to pay the crew for the downtime, so he’s made an offer to pay 1/3 of the crew salaries if Warner Bros. and CBS each pay 1/3 as well.
Good for him for being so generous. Charlie has gobs and gobs of money, so at least he’s making up for the time he’s taking off. It’s not the crew’s fault that he was swimming in mountains of cocaine with porn stars. But I’m sure they wish they were there. Ha.
We all know that Charlie Sheen went on a bender this past weekend with three porn stars and one of them was Bree Olson, who won best Anal Sex Scene back in2008, now we know that Michelle (Bombshell) McGee was also involved.
TMZ are reporting that that Bombshell and Bree made friends with each other a couple of hours before sharing an on-stage kiss at a comedy show. After that Bree invited Bombshell to go back to Sheen’s penthouse with her.
Since Bombshell had no issues with having an affair with Jesse James while he was still married to Sandra Bullock, it should come as no surprise to anyone that she ran to Sheen’s room at 2AM where she discovered “a ‘trainwreck inside’ … consisting of Charlie, booze, and a whole lotta women.”
She stayed for a couple of hours before leaving, nobody knows if she did the dirty with Charlie Sheen but this is Michelle (Bombshell) McGee so I’m going to assume she did.
