Seen above giving me a visual interpretation of my Sunday hangover, the mutated crack pipe-induced mouth blister Charlie Sheen is once again making his co-workers contemplate breaking into his trailer to soothe their splintered nerves by stealing and smoking his stash of crack. The Hollywood Reporter brings us the shocking and surprising news that working with Charlie Sheen is as good for your blood pressure as going to Ikea on a Saturday afternoon is. No, I’m still not over that shit.
A source tells THR that Charlie has missed a few days of shooting on his show Anger Management and it’s screwing with the schedule. They somehow made it two thirds of the way through their 100-episode order, but the show’s studio Lionsgate still had to push shooting past what they had planned and some scenes have been shot with Charlie Sheen stand-ins (a Charlie Sheen stand-in either looks like this or this). The cast is pissed and telling the producers that they’re going to stop showing up for work if Charlie Sheen keeps no-showing. But Charlie’s spokeswhore says that THR’s source is a liar and the show hasn’t used stand-ins.
A Lionsgate spokesperson declined to comment on the situation. Sheen’s publicist, Jeff Ballard, denies that the show has used stand-ins or shot around the actor. “We did not shoot last week because another member of the cast was sick,” the rep tells THR. “Charlie is always ready, willing and able to shoot Anger Management and looks forward to returning on Monday.”
What’s really shocking about this whole thing is that Charlie Sheen managed to shoot over 60 episodes of that wreck without having to use all his “sick” and “mental health” days because he was arrested after the cops found 4 dead hookers in his trailer. Ray Donovan is real and pays a visit to the Anger Management set at least every other day. But what does the cast of Anger Management expect?! Did Selma Blair not teach them anything?! When you sign up for a Charlie Sheen show, there’s a 100% chance you’ll inhale second-hand crack smoke at least once a day and there’s an even bigger chance that Charlie Sheen will declare a snow day a few times a month and by “snow day” I mean he’s too coked up to come in.
