Charlie Sheen has broken his silence about his former “Two and a Half Men” co-star Angus T. Jones calling the show "filth." Sheen, for his part, believes the show is “cursed.”
Sheen was famously kicked off “Two and a Half Men” in 2011 following an attempt at rehab and later attacking Warner Bros Television, CBS and the show's creator, Chuck Lorre, reports The Guardian. Sheen also demanded a raise and he was eventually fired from the show and replaced by Ashton Kutcher.
Angus T. Jones could soon follow Sheen as a former cast member of “Two and a Half Men.” Jones gave an interview to Forerunner Chronicles in which the co-star of the hit show called it filth and wanted viewers to not watch the show anymore.
The YouTube video went viral and now many are speculating on what will be next for Jones and “Two and a Half Men.” Many were also looking to Sheen, following his own public exit from the show, for a comment, and on Tuesday he made a brief comment to People.
In the comment to People, Sheen said "With Angus's Hale-Bopp-like meltdown, it is radically clear to me that the show is cursed.”
Hale-Bopp was a comet that passed by Earth in the 1990s. Some people believed there was an alien spaceship behind it, and committed suicide to prepare for a new world.
Sheen, following his explosive 2011, has been fairly quiet in 2012 and is now back on television. Sheen is currently starring on “Anger Management,” which airs on FX. The show has been quite the success for Sheen and FX. According to Collider, the show's first season averaged more than 4.5 million viewers. FX has agreed to an additional 90 episodes of “Anger Management,” notes Collider.
While Sheen is not making $1.25 million per episode as he was with “Two and a Half Men,” he has definitely earned himself another nice payday with “Anger Management.” If all goes to plan, “Anger Management” would make it into syndication. That would mean Sheen would have two hit shows in syndication, adding millions to his bank account for years as long as the re-runs roll.
