During Charlie Sheen's recent outspoken antics, CBS felt it had seen enough, and fired the actor. After the media frenzy, Sheen turned his rants and raves toward the channel and Warner Brothers. Now, CBS wants the actor to return to his show.
First it was Charlie Sheen's ex-wife Brooke Mueller not extending her retaining order against him, and now it appears that CBS President and CEO Les Moonves wants to bring Sheen back. According to Fox News, Moonves spent Monday in meetings aimed at bringing Sheen back to his roll on "Two and a Half Men."
The show is produced by Warner Bros. who fired Sheen earlier in March. The meetings included Chuck Lorre, the show's co-creator and Executive Producer, as well as the cast. It was Lorre who Sheen referred to as a "contaminated little maggot" while referring to the cast as "trolls."
According to an insider who remained nameless, "Moonves wants to get the show back on the air." The insider went on to explain that the big rif was between Lorre and Sheen adding, "The core issue is, as he put it, the volatile relationship between Charlie Sheen and Chuck Lorre. He believes that if CBS and Warner Bros. TV honchos can find a way to get Chuck and Charlie to speak again, cooler heads will prevail."
If Moonves gets his way then it looks like he will get Sheen and Lorre at the same table to work their differences out. If those differences are worked out then the thought is, "Two and a half Men" will be back on the air with new episodes.
