They fired Charlie Sheen


Well, Charlie Sheen was fired. For "moral turpitude". They didn't fire him after he pleaded guilty to assaulting his wife, in fact they renegotiated his contract. But, of course, I can't really take Charlie Sheen's side in this.

I wonder how Angus T. Jones is coping. And what about Jon Cryer? What will he do now?

Anyway, this may help Sheen. Someone pointed out that his vast amount of money is keeping him from hitting rock bottom.

On the other hand, what do I know? Maybe he did cure himself through the power of his mind. Maybe all those things he's been saying are right. Maybe he does have tiger blood.

An interesting article on about Charlie Sheen. Starts with a quote:

"I'm untouchable! I'm Charlie Sheen! I'm more famous than Obama!"

-- Charlie Sheen to his wife

It’s possible that Carlos Irwin Estevez, the actor known as ‘Charlie Sheen’, is ranting the simple truth when he claims to be invulnerable and indestructible because he’s fleetingly super-famous and has “tiger’s blood” running in his pharmaceutically-enhanced veins...


... Exposure is the ultra-violet ray that springs this hardy weed into life, without it he’d be dead or institutionalized. Look on the bright side: we keep Charlie alive.

He goes on to describe Charlie as

a sub-so-so actor of a string of rotten movies except for Oliver Stone’s Vietnam war masterpiece, Platoon, where Charlie superbly played a rookie grunt with divided loyalties.

Nice that someone finally pointed out that Sheen is a sub-so-so actor. That's the thing that always amazed me. I know he's making a fortune on his TV show, but where did he get the $50,000 he blew on prostitutes several years ago, before the show?
