Charlie Sheen’s Back on TV!
Winning! Charlie Sheen, troubled superstar, might actually come out on top this time.
After months of turmoil, actor Charlie Sheen might actually be winning. Radaronline.com is exclusively reporting that Sheen, who infamously lost his $2 million per episode job on Two And a Half Men, has inked a deal with Lionsgate Television to star in his own sitcom.
Even after his infamous 20/20 interview, he appears to be one of the most bankable actors in Hollywood. According to reports, several cable and broadcast networks, including TBS, are scrambling to bid for the rights to air the unnamed show.
If that isn’t shocking enough, Charlie is said to profit more from this sitcom than he would have if he continued his role as Charlie Harper on his old show.
He will be laughing as well…all the way to the bank if all goes as expected. If Lionsgate opts to produce 90 episodes of the sitcom (the company has already agreed to 10), Sheen will make more in the end than he would have in his role as Charlie Harper.
