Charlie Sheen fired from Two and a Half Men

Warner Bros. performed the latest act in the media circus surrounding troubled — or is that “winning”? — actor Charlie Sheen after they fired him from his role on the highly-successful CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men yesterday.

The studio sent Sheen’s lawyer a detailed 11-page letter to explain their decision.

Saying that Sheen “…has been engaged in dangerously self-destructive conduct and appears to be very ill” the letter claimed the actor had violated a morals clause as he had “committed an act which constitutes a felony offense involving moral turpitude under federal, state or local laws, or is indicted or convicted of any such offense.” They claim the violation occurred when he furnished cocaine to others.

The letter also countered Sheen’s claims that he was always 100% fine when it was time to work. “Mr. Sheen had difficulty remembering his lines and hitting his marks. His conduct and condition created substantial tensions on the set. He sometimes showed up to work after not having slept and needed to move his mark to accommodate his need to ‘lean’ on something, for balance.”

Sheen’s lawyer announced that the actor is going to sue.
