Did Charlie Sheen Commit Career Suicide?

By Roger Friedman

HollywoodNews.com: Someone will work with Charlie Sheen again one day, but I doubt it will be CBS or “Two and a Half Men” creator Chuck Lorre. CBS pulled the plug yesterday on the show–quite rightly–after Sheen verbally attacked both the network and Lorre–the latter with an anti-Semitic rant. Is Sheen on drugs? Has he lost his mind? Really, who cares anymore? He’s out. He issued a statement and here it is:

“What does this say about Haim Levine [Chuck Lorre] after he tried to use his words to judge and attempt to degrade me. I gracefully ignored this folly for 177 shows … I fire back once and this contaminated little maggot can’t handle my power and can’t handle the truth. I wish him nothing but pain in his silly travels especially if they wind up in my octagon. Clearly I have defeated this earthworm with my words — imagine what I would have done with my fire breathing fists. I urge all my beautiful and loyal fans who embraced this show for almost a decade to walk with me side-by-side as we march up the steps of justice to right this unconscionable wrong. Remember these are my people … not yours…we will continue on together… Charlie Sheen”

In a single afternoon–with his beleaguered pubicist Stan Rosenfield unaware and trapped on a plane flying from LA to New York, Sheen brought down a whole show. Three hundred people or so are now out of work thanks to him, including co-star Jon Cryer. Sheen should be proud of himself now. CBS will go on just fine without “Two and A Half Men.” Sheen walks away with millions and millions. The cast and crew and families are imperiled, however. Sbeen will not pay for that, at least financially. But what crew would ever want to work with him again?
