Charlie Sheen is giving his best “U MAD” face in the picture above when he’s really the one who is mad tho. Charlie ain’t got shit to do, so of course he’s wasting everyone’s time by suing Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre and Warner Bros. for not paying him for the 8 episodes they scrapped. Charlie thinks he’s a regular Norma Rae, because he’s also raising his fist for the cast and crew by including them in the lawsuit.
Charlie’s lawyer, Marty Singer, claims in the lawsuit that Chuck Lorre is a manipulator and master liar. Marty claims that Chuck fired Charlie while he was sick and that’s a violation of federal laws. The lawsuit also states that Chuck made the decision to chop all 8 episodes long before it was announced. Chuck is apparently tired of Charlie and Two and a Half Men, and wants to move on to other projects. The lawsuit goes on:
“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 for Lorre’s own conduct.”
The $100 million covers loss of wages for Charlie and the crew as well as punitive damages. Apparently, Warner Bros. and Chuck Lorre already paid the crew for the 8 canceled episodes.
How long before Marty Singer dives off the back of Charlie’s speeding crazy train and he’s forced to represent himself in court? THE WARLOCK OBJECTS, your honor! Charlie showing up to court in a samurai kimono and a hand full of random papers seems like the next natural step in this never-ending mess.
With that being said, we should all hope that Charlie wins because then you can cite this case when your boss fires you for smoking crack in the bathroom. “You can’t fire me! I’m sick! Check the Warlock vs. Troll case of 2011!”
