Charlie Sheen notified the crew of the show Two and a Half Men that he would pay a portion of their salaries for the two weeks the show has been off-air as long as CBS and Warner Bros. agree to pay the remainder, TMZ reports.
Sheen's antics had the hit TV show canceled for two weeks while the actor receives the help he needs. Sheen is currently in rehab after incidents involving alcohol and drugs.
A few days ago Sheen released a statement thanking those who have stood by him during his troubles.
I have a lot of work to do to be able to return the support I have received from so many people. I want to say, 'Thank-you' to my fellow cast members, the crew of Two and a Half Men, and everyone at CBS and Warner Bros for their concern and support, the 45-year-old actor said in his statement.
TMZ confirms Sheen wants to return to work next week to complete the season of Two and a Half Men. CBS executives said the show will come back at the end of the month if Sheen is ready. The actor offered to pay 1/3 of the crew's salaries for the time they are not working.
Warner Bros. did not comment on Sheen's financial offer but told TMZ that they sincerely hope that Charlie's rehab is going well. We hope that he is healthy in the near future and we look forward to the return of production of Two and a Half Men.
