That Charlie Sheen just won’t shut up. The month of love is ending on a sour note for sourpuss actor Sheen. So it’s only natural that he take his grips to every television network in America; except of couse for the one that’s made him the highest-paid man on primetime TV since 2003!
After CBS and Warner Bros. pulled the plug on his ratings-winning sitcom, Two and A Half Men, following a feud with series creator Chuck Lorre last week, Sheen’s playing a media blitz that will include stops by ABC’s 20/20 and NBC morning gabfest The TODAY Show this week.
Charlie’s penned a poignant open letter in response to the shutdown of Two and A Half Men. You can read the whole thing at TMZ, but here’s a highlight: “This contaminated little maggot [Chuck Lorre] can’t handle my power and can’t handle the truth. I wish him nothing but pain in his silly travels especially if they wind up in my octagon. Clearly I have defeated this earthworm with my words — imagine what I would have done with my fire-breathing fists.”
TODAY will air an interview with Charlie and NBC News’ Jeff Rossen, this Monday, Feb. 28, TMZ.com said this week. He’ll talk with ABC News’ Andrea Canning on a special one hour 20/20 special set to air Tuesday at 10 PM ET.
