Charlie Sheen is so winning that he didn't just file a lawsuit for $100 million against Warner Bros., which makes Two and a Half Men, but he did it for himself and the entire cast and crew. Oh, that Charlie. He's so generous!
He doesn't think he got fired because of his very public meltdown, but because the show's creator, Chuck Lorre, is out to get him. Here's how the opening of his lawsuit reads:
Chuck Lorre, one of the richest men in television who is worth hundreds of millions of dollars, believes himself to be so wealthy and powerful that he can unilaterally decide to take money away from the dedicated cast and crew of the popular television series Two and a Half Men in order to serve his own ego and self-interest and make the star of the series the scapegoat. Charlie Sheen is not only seeking payment for his own compensation for the series, but he is also pursuing claims for the benefit of the entire cast and crew to get paid the balance of the season's 24 episodes.
The suit goes on to claim that Lorre has been publicly ridiculing Sheen for years and alleges he has some sort of vendetta against the star, which is the real reason behind his (he claims) wrongful termination. All this needs is for Sheen to serve as his own attorney and it sounds like the plot of one of CBS' more wacky procedurals. With all things Sheen these days, we're sure the best is yet to come.
