Charlie Sheen to Matt Lauer: 'I'm a lot calmer'

In an interview with Today’s Matt Lauer that will air on Friday, Charlie Sheen acknowledges “there are portions” of his past “I would have amended a little bit” and insists he’s completely sober and “calmer” these days. When asked by Lauer when was the last time he had a drink or “something more,” Sheen responded, ” I don’t really keep track of the time. It’s been awhile, because I feel like, without getting into my feelings about AA and all that stuff, if you’re walking around hanging on to your time, it’s only a matter of time before it goes, you know?”

Countered Lauer, “But you’re an actor in a business, and you know that producers out there and people who get involved in projects with you want to know, has it been two weeks, has it been two months, are you bankable, are you trustworthy.” READ FULL STORY

Jon Cryer tells Ellen: 'I was worried that Charlie was going to die.'

Two and a Half Men co-star Jon Cryer has remained relatively silent during this exciting Charlie Sheen year (with the notable exception of a self-deprecating appearance on Conan.) But on today’s edition of Ellen, the actor discusses his perspective on the controversy that nearly ended his show. In a promo for the episode, Cryer explains that Men wasn’t the first thing on his mind during the crisis: “I was worried that Charlie was going to die.” Host Ellen Degeneres helpfully notes that Cryer was “so gracious” at a time when Sheen was publicly calling Cryer “a troll.” Cryer sounds almost apologetic about the whole incident, explaining: “It was in the heat of the moment I imagine when he said it. So I did not put a whole lot of credence in it at the time.” The two actors have not spoken since Sheen left the Two and a Half Men set last season. Check out the promo: READ FULL STORY

Charlie and Martin Sheen reunite for 'Apocalypse Now' spoof on Comedy Central! -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Charlie-Sheen-Roast

I love the sight of a family reunion in the morning! Charlie Sheen has teamed with his father for a parody of Martin Sheen’s legendary film Apocalypse Now. The Comedy Central digital short was filmed to promote Charlie Sheen’s roast and marks the first time the father and son have appeared together in a scripted project since Martin Sheen guest starred on Two and a Half Men six years ago. The Sheen patriarch has largely turned down interview requests since his son’s headline-making departure from the CBS sitcom, but his supportive role in this video speaks volumes. To say any more would spoil the fun. Check out this must-watch video short titled Charpocolypse (which included Roman Coppola as a technical adviser), and an interview with Comedy Central about the making of the spoof below: READ FULL STORY

Charlie Sheen roast: The 8 meanest jokes

Here’s the Top 8 most brutal jokes from Charlie Sheen’s roast (at least, among those we can print):

1. “You’re just like Bruce Willis — you were big in the 80s and now your old slot is being filled by Ashton Kutcher.” — Amy Schumer READ FULL STORY

Charlie Sheen's brutal roast: Celebrities open fire on drugs, hookers, violence

“There’s gonna be some vicious s— said on stage tonight,” promised a staffer on Comedy Central’s roast of Charlie Sheen. And he was right. Celebrity roasters took the dais for the much-buzzed-about special and open fired, mocking Sheen’s history of drug use and employing prostitutes, as well as allegations of the actor abusing women. Here’s EW’s slightly NSFW live blog from the Culver City event (and if you just want to read the eight meanest jokes, go here):

Comedian Jeffrey Ross throws some tough punches: “Charlie’s meltdown was so bad Al Gore is making a documentary about it. Charlie’s nostrils are so snotty and full of coke he calls them ‘the Hilton sisters.’ … Charlie if you’re ‘winning,’ something is wrong with the scoreboard. If you’re winning, this must not be a child custody hearing. The only time your kids get to see you is in reruns — don’t you want to live to see their first 12 steps? [Sheen's ex wife] Brooke Mueller is not very bright unless Charlie throws a lamp at her. … Mike Tyson, your opponents spent more time bleeding in the corner than Charlie’s ex-wives.”

Host Seth MacFarlane takes the stage and starts in on Sheen, “a man who was great in two things 25 years ago.” He notes CBS’ Two and a Half Men will air a mock funeral for Sheen’s character during its premiere on the same night the Comedy Central roast airs but, “You can just wait a couple months and see the real thing.” MacFarlane then started to read an obituary he wrote for Sheen, saying the actor was found dead in his apartment, then stopped: “I just kinda just copied Amy Winehouse’s obituary,” adding he “only had to change a few things … like calling him a ‘talent who will be missed.'” Then MacFarlane said: “You’ve seen his movies [and] if you’re a prostitute you’ve seen him point a gun at your face while you try to get him hard. … Charlie, you claim to have ‘tiger blood,’ but after all the porn stars you’ve [had sex with], it’s probably Tiger Wood’s blood … How do you get fired from Two and a Half Men? Do they haul you in and say, ‘Sorry, you don’t suck enough?'”

Jon Lovitz takes the dais: “How much blow can Charlie Sheen do? Enough to kill Two and a Half Men.” … Lovitz also threw a shot at fellow roaster, Private Practice star Kate Walsh: “Kate could play younger roles but she lacks one thing: moisture.” READ FULL STORY

Jon Cryer on Charlie Sheen's 'death' in season opener of 'Two and a Half Men': 'No ... explosion'

charlie-sheen-lying-down

Jon Cryer is bored with all of his Emmy nominations!

Not really, but the funny man from Two and a Half Men made a crack about his sixth consecutive Emmy nod on a Los Angeles TV station Tuesday by saying he’s become one of those actors who forgot about the nominations. “This year was a total surprise,” Cryer told the anchors on KTLA. “I don’t know if you heard but some weird stuff went down on this show this year.”

Speaking of which, Cryer acknowledged there are some weird stories circulating about how Charlie Sheen’s absence is addressed in the season premiere on Sept. 19, but he assures fans that it doesn’t happen as the result of some combustible catastrophe. “There is no meat explosion,” he said, in reference to one particularly strange rumor floating about the much-anticipated episode. “I don’t want Americans to be afraid of the meat. It’s not some entrée that ends disastrously. I’m not allowed to say much about it.”

Strangely, the firing of Sheen brought clarity to the cast and crew, Cryer said. “My perspective has been great through all of this. For many fans of the show, [Sheen's departure] meant a great deal, and that’s important to us. It was an awful thing to be a part of, and I’m glad that some measure of peace has come out of all of it. I never want to go through it again.”
