'Two and a Half Men' crew will get paid

Charlie Sheen may not be getting paid for the canceled Two and a Half Men episodes — but the show’s crew is.

Sources confirm to EW that Warner Bros. will pay the Men team for four of the eight episodes that were lost due to CBS and the studio halting production on the show. Men exec producer Chuck Lorre, a studio source says, was instrumental in pushing through the payday. One estimate put the cost of reimbursing the crew for the four episodes at $2 million.

“It’s a start,” Sheen told the AP when he was told the news, noting that payments for co-stars Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones should be “next.”

    Pay everyone except Charlie. Then maybe he’ll begin to realize that HE is the one who cost all these people their jobs. I watched his interview on TMZ and couldn’t believe what an egomaniac he is; and the “interviewer” just kowtowed to him the entire time! What a pitiable man.

      oh goody…i can sleep tonight! that crew is over pd just like charlie.
      shed tears for the REAL working man.

    • kaydevo

      No, sadly Charlie won’t “realize” anything. After watching his astoundingly disturbing interview on NBC, I’m sure of that.

  • Jademarisa

    I hope all those salaries come directly from Nina Tassler’s salary, and from the rest of the infamous CBS personnel contracting department (or whatever it’s called. )

    • Ana

      CBS doesn’t own Two and Half Men. Warner Brothers does and they are the ones paying the crew’s salaries. So, no, it’s not coming out of Nina Tassler’s salary.

  • Marilyn

    JAY MOHR!!!!!!! Perfect for the part!

    • zeba

      Love Jay Mohr!! He would be an excellent addition. They can ship Charlie off to ‘tour’ or to New York.

      I agree with every one who says they should take the money they would have paid Charlie with and pay the rest of the cast a crew.

  • PamT

    I think he has become an arrogant asshole, who thinks he is gods gift. To bad he has to pay for someone to be with him. I say fire him and get on with someone else..

  • dianna

    CBS going to pay the crew: let me clarify something for you- my relatives dont get any money as they will be sentenced with Tabitha and the other idiots. Im taking my money and they will be sentenced- end of discussion

    I’d love to see everyone except Sheen get paid for the remainder of the season. I can’t get enough of Sheen’s exceedingly bizarre behavior.

    • Ktct

      Maybe the, “star whackers” have given up on Randy Quaid and moved on to Charlie!

      • Dani

        Maybe he’ll escape to Canada too!

      • Softy1

        We don’t want him here!!!

  • Miss D

    Chuck Lorre shut this down he knew what he was doing and how many live affected but belieive me non of these people are hurting and they will all bounce back especially Sheen

    • kathy

      Are you even listening to what is coming out of Sheen’s mouth? This guy is full of himself and deserves nothing!!

    • Asha

      Exactly

    • Asha

      Exactly.

      Y’all might not have noticed. Bad behaviour is what tv is all about now.

  • helen

    Enough from this low life freak Charlie Sheen. I boycotted this show BECAUSE of Sheen and his absurd behaviors. Why he earns so much is beyond me. He is a loser and should shut up and lock himself away somewhere. I am sick of hearing of his bad behavior and rudeness. What a pain useless mess of a “little boy”. He is the “half” in the series title and that is being generous!

  • Dani

    I saw part of his interview on Today. He was moving around everywhere. My sister has a drug problem and she acts the same way. And, he wasn’t making a whole lot of sense with some of the things he’s saying.

    • helen

      Ya think? Duh…

  • Jamal

    There’s talk that John Stamos might replace Sheen. CBS should take this opportunity to replace him with a black actor.

    • Javadude54

      I’d like to see that done just to hear what Charlie had to say about it.

    • Grubi

      Not sure how they’d do that since Sheen and Cryer are supposed to be brothers…

    • DJ

      Wayne Brady would be great.

  • Barack Palin

    I don’t think anyone needs to replace Charlie Sheen. The show can easily be retooled with the existing cast and could easily run for another four-five season.

    • Solarr Panel

      This show is moronic and for juveniles. Unless you can find an actor who can play a moron as well as this bozo, the show will lose it’s ratings. The same kind of fans that this show appeals to, want watch it.

      • Solarr Panel

        er, won’t watch it.

  • Melissa

    Pretty sad they can pay the whole crew 4 episodes of salary and it is equal to what they were paying Charlie Sheen each episode. 2 million an episode and he is still complaining he needs more money for his family. If you can’t live off 2 million an episode for the rest of your life something is wrong!

    • chris

      whatever happens,I just hope this goes on for awhile I am having so much fun standing by the tracks watching this Charlie trainwreck its hilarious this poor guy is pathetic

  • chris

    Delusions of grandeur…yup a sympton of bi-polar effective disorder and crystal meth

  • moses

    When people ask me, “How are you?”, I reply,
    “Better than Charlie Sheen.”

    • Mekdes

      #39 Darren, I recognize and repecst the rights of free associations that are called religious organizations to recognize and define whatever they like. I think government at every level should treat associations between free people equally under the law. Government should not have the power to favor some associations over others, regardless of how many opportunistic politicians find benefit from using nebulous wedge issues to convince people that there is some pressing need to do so. Cindy and Tracie are gay. They will be gay regardless of how many laws are passed with the stated purpose of treating them differently. Perhaps we should just agree to disagree on this topic. I prefer freedom and equality for all persons. You apparently feel threatened by Cindy and Tracie to the degree that you find it necessary for the federal government to defend you from them.I feel sorry for you.

    I’m bipolar, Charlie Sheen gives the disease a bad name.
