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

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.”

Charlie Sheen looking forward to watching new 'Two and a Half Men'

Charlie Sheen is delivering a 180-degree turn from his days of predicting ratings doom for the recast Two and a Half Men.

“Who’s not going to watch?” he enthused to Extra. “I’ll be there front and center. I’m just as curious as everybody else.” READ FULL STORY

Charlie Sheen, dead and buried in the 'Two and A Half Men' season premiere?

charlie-sheen-lying-down

Oh boy, the first episode of Two and A Half Men could be a doozy. After rumors swirled online that creator Chuck Lorre could kill off Charlie Sheen’s character to make way for Ashton Kutcher, Deadline is now reporting that a funeral is, indeed, in the works for the comedy’s ninth season premiere on Sept. 19. The not-so dearly departed? Sheen’s Charlie Harper, of course. READ FULL STORY

It's official: Charlie Sheen announces 'Anger Management' sitcom

More details on Charlie Sheen’s next TV project: The actor officially announced his show based on the movie Anger Management — but there’s still no network on board … yet.

The show is based on the movie about a mild-mannered, non-confrontational man is ordered to attend group anger management sessions led by a therapist who could probably use some anger management himself.

“I chose Anger Management because, while it might be a big stretch for me to play a guy with serious anger management issues, I think it is a great concept,” Sheen said in a statement. “It also provides me with real ownership in the series, a certain amount of creative control and the chance to be back in business with one of my favorite movie producers of all time, Joe Roth.” READ FULL STORY

Charlie Sheen shopping 'Anger Management' sitcom? Here's our pro and con list

Seems Charlie Sheen’s new sitcom project is beginning to take shape: He’s apparently teaming with movie producer Joe Roth and Lionsgate to shop a TV-sized version of the 2003 Adam Sandler film Anger Management, says TMZ and others (Lionsgate still says no deal, by the way). The duo are hunting for a showrunner willing to get into the tiger’s den with Sheen. Deadline wondered who would be desperate enough to join a Sheen project, but there’s always somebody, right? (Heck, it’s arguably worth doing just for the lifetime’s supply of party anecdotes you’d acquire from the experience.) But what about the rumored pitch itself — Charlie Sheen in Anger Management sitcom? Could that find a network home?

Comedy Central to roast Charlie Sheen

Charlie Sheen absorbed some good ribbing from the Roastmaster General, Jeff Ross, during his recent live tour, but now, the former Two and Half Men actor is prepared for the full roast treatment. Comedy Central announced today that Sheen will be the main course at the Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen. “You could say I’ve been providing kindling for this roast for a while,” said Sheen, in a statement. “It’s time to light it up. It’s going to be epic.”

“Charlie has assured us that nothing will be off limits in this Roast… which scares even us,” said Kent Alterman, Comedy Central’s head of original programming and production.

The Roast will tape in Los Angeles on Sept. 10 and air on Sept. 19. Sept. 19? Sept. 19. Hmm, why Sept. 19? What else premieres on Sept. 19? Would you believe Two and a Half Men? Yup. Nice.

Should 'Men' kill off Charlie Sheen's character?

charlie-sheen-lying-down

Regrettably, the studio behind Two and a Half Men had no comment about a report suggesting that Charlie Harper — a.k.a. the hedonistic character played by Charlie Sheen — will be killed off in the premiere episode of the CBS comedy this fall to make way for the introduction of Ashton Kutcher. (Specifically, Charlie may drive his car off of a cliff.)

Though TMZ hedges that the “first script isn’t locked” and that creator Chuck Lorre “often makes changes until close to taping,” it’s entirely possible that Men will want to wipe the slate clean. Nothing says good riddance to an ugly chapter in a show’s life than offing a character for good. READ FULL STORY

Is Charlie Sheen returning to TV with a new sitcom?

Is Charlie Sheen taking another step closer to getting back into primetime?

Radar is reporting the actor has made a deal with production company Lionsgate Television to shop a new sitcom to networks and that channels are already bidding for the show. “Networks and cable are bidding on the show right now, with TBS being the front runner,” the story reports: Only problem: There doesn’t appear to be a Lionsgate deal yet (the company has no comment). As for TBS, a spokesperson says, “TBS is not in discussions for a possible project with Charlie Sheen.” READ FULL STORY

Charlie Sheen case against Warner Bros. will not go to trial

L.A. Superior Court Judge Alan Goodman ruled today that Charlie Sheen’s case against Warner Bros. will proceed in arbitration rather than go to trial, a ruling that will ultimately work in the studio’s favor.

Warner Bros. issued a statement reacting to the ruling: “We’re very gratified by the court’s ruling enforcing the parties’ arbitration agreement.”

A rep for Sheen had no comment.

Back in early March, Sheen filed a $100 million lawsuit claiming that Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre and the studio wrongfully attributed “the suspension of the series and termination of Mr. Sheen’s contract on Mr. Sheen’s alleged statements, conduct, and condition, despite the fact that Mr. Sheen is in compliance with his contract.”

Sheen’s team fought to get him a trial and had previously requested to halt arbitration proceedings; however, that request was denied soon after.

Charlie Sheen's mansion is for sale. Is he broke?

Other than his response to Ashton Kutcher’s hire on Two and a Half Men, we haven’t heard much from Charlie Sheen and what his plans are now that he’s not returning to CBS this fall. But that doesn’t mean the 45-year-old actor isn’t looking to make a major life change: Sheen has listed his 7,924-square-foot house in Beverly Hills for $7.2 million.

Up until a year ago, the public wasn’t familiar with Sheen’s Mediterranean-style mansion with five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a swimming pool, and a spa. But then a certain porn star (or two, or three) came over to his place to party and suddenly his home in a hilltop gated community became a huge source of intrigue, especially since he ended up using it as his personal rehabilitation facility — a.k.a. Sober Valley Lodge — rather than leaving Los Angeles to seek help at a reputable treatment center.

But why is he selling? The house definitely has its share of bad mojo (see: the above paragraph) but there could be more important reasons to warrant a sale. Sheen’s lifestyle doesn’t come cheap; on top of the private jets, high-priced companions, and his other extracurricular activities, the actor still pays a reported $1.3 million combined to support his two ex-wives and four small children. He may have worked as the highest paid sitcom star in TV by raking in $2 million an episode, but that salary is now gone. And his multi-city road show this spring was a short-lived, and no doubt a relatively meager source of income. READ FULL STORY

Charlie Sheen did not submit name for Emmys

Holland-Taylor

Looks like Charlie Sheen won’t be doing a lot of #winning at the Emmy Awards.

Because he did not submit his name for consideration in time for the deadline, former Two and a Half Men star Charlie Sheen will be ineligible for any awards at the next Emmy Awards ceremony.

Sheen, a four-time nominee in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series category, was given several opportunities to submit and was even given an extension, according to Academy sources. The actor’s co-stars Jon Cryer, Angus T. Young, and Holland Taylor all submitted their names, as did guest star Jane Lynch.

Last week, it was announced that the show would not be competing for a nomination in the Outstanding Comedy category.

Charlie Sheen will not appear on final season of 'Entourage,' says creator

Despite earlier attempts to get Charlie Sheen to appear on the final season of Entourage, which kicks off July 24, the embattled former Two and a Half Men star will not be on hand for the show’s swan song, creator Doug Ellin tells EW.

“I never heard back. Looks like it will not be happening,” Ellin says, lamenting the possibilities. “I could have come up with some good stuff. I didn’t really plan anything, but I would have.”

Earlier this month, Ellin had expressed interest in having Sheen on the show, but the offer has officially expired, as Ellin was penning the final script when EW caught up with him yesterday.

The show is currently half way through filming the eighth and final season of the series, which will feature appearances by guest stars like The Big Bang Theory’s Johnny Galecki and Andrew Dice Clay.

UPDATE: Charlie Sheen reacts to 'Men' hire, Ashton Kutcher responds

UPDATE: After drawing headlines for mocking Ashton Kutcher as the new Two and a Half Men star, Sheen just tweeted a complimentary reversal:

“#Winning Congrats to the cast and crew…CBS & WB..! My best to @aplusk!! [Kutcher’s Twitter handle] The show must go on… You got the right guy! c”

Kutcher quickly tweeted back: “#2.5 @charliesheen Thank man. Always been a fan, always will be! BTW you were “born big”
