Charlie Sheen says he wants to be a part of his old show again as it ends an impressive television run, and that he’s reached out to producers despite their bumpy history.
Sheen says he’s talked to the showrunners at Two And A Half Men about coming back for the final days in a way that makes sense, although there was reportedly some friction when he left; Sheen was allegedly fired in 2011 after a dispute with producer Chuck Lorre, which led to a lawsuit.
“I’ve reached out to them and they’ve reached back. We’re trying to figure out what makes the most sense. If they figure it out like I’ve presented it to them and they want to include me in some final send-off, I’m available and I’m showing up early. If not, it’s on them,” Sheen said.
Sheen recently made headlines with his generosity after he donated $10,000 to the ALS Association and $1,000 to a waiter in Philadelphia who reportedly only received a 20-cent tip from Eagles runningback LeSean McCoy.
Sheen’s current show, Anger Management, is nearing the end of a 100-episode order, and it’s unclear if it will go on or not. Sheen says he’s ready for the outcome no matter what it is.
“If it continues, awesome. I’m available. Best job I ever had. If it doesn’t? I gave them all I had. Best education I ever had. Best friends I ever made. Best group of people I’ve ever worked with. I believe we’re delivering something that’s not just another bag of slag to the hack pile of contemporary network television,” he said.
