Is Charlie Sheen Leaving Two and a Half Men?
The star of the popular sitcom is shooting the final episode of the seventh season tonight. Will he be returning for season eight?
Per usual Charlie Sheen will take to the stage this evening to tape Two and a Half Men, but could it be his last Friday night on the CBS set?
The actor, who is currently facing domestic violence charges due to his Christmas Day blowout with wife Brooke Mueller, tells People that this may be the end of the line.
Sheen maintains that this is not an 11-hour negotiating ploy, and that everyone associated with the sitcom is well aware of his desire to move on to new things.
“Both parties have known the score for over a year,” he said in an exclusive statement. “In no way, has this been a hasty or negligent eleventh hour surprise. I offer this information out of love and respect to my crew, my on-set family, my writers, executive staff, as well as my real family, my dear friends and my loyal fans. We tape the final episode of the season this evening.”
Although he has enjoyed his time on the hit show, Sheen says he will gracefully exit stage right if he feels that it is the correct thing to do.
“If tonight’s show is the end for me as Charlie Harper, so be it,” he concluded. “Another journey has begun. I take from the experience 161 shows filled with a kaleidoscope of amazing experiences, memories, friendships and gratitude. I remain humbly inspired.”
