Warner Bros. fires Charlie Sheen from 'Men'

Charlie Sheen's employment on "Two and a Half Men" has been formally terminated by Warner Bros.

The studio sent the actor a letter today informing him of the termination. Sheen had another season to go on his contract with the studio for the CBS laffer, which was shut down for the rest of this season by the studio and network on Feb. 24 because of Sheen's increasingly erratic behavior and hard-partying lifestyle.

Sheen had been promising to take legal action against the studio ever since Warner Bros. TV and CBS made the decision to shutter "Men."

Reps for the studio said no final decision has been made about the fate of the "Men" on CBS next season, other than the fact that Sheen will not be on the series.

Charlie Sheen on Firing -- 'This Is Good News'

TMZ has obtained a statement from Charlie Sheen on his firing from "Two and a Half Men" today:
"This is very good news. They continue to be in breach, like so many whales. It is a big day of gladness at the Sober Valley Lodge because now I can take all of their bazillions, never have to look at whatshiscock again and I never have to put on those silly shirts for as long as this warlock exists in the terrestrial dimension."

& even more:
“I got a text or something. Here’s another thing — these guys are such yellow cockroaches that they didn’t even have the decency to call me. I put 5 bill[ion] in their cheap suit pockets and another half a bil’ in what’s-his-cheese’s pockets and this is the… respect I get?” Sheen told Bush. “It’s just deplorable and they should be ashamed of themselves!”


LOS ANGELES, Calif. --

Charlie Sheen has blasted his former bosses at “Two and a Half Men” after they fired him on Monday afternoon.

In his first interview since learning the news, Sheen told Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush that his former bosses at Warner Bros. Television, which produces the show, did not contact him to break the news – he found out via technology.

“I got a text or something. Here’s another thing — these guys are such yellow cockroaches that they didn’t even have the decency to call me. I put 5 bill[ion] in their cheap suit pockets and another half a bil’ in what’s-his-cheese’s pockets and this is the… respect I get?” Sheen told Bush. “It’s just deplorable and they should be ashamed of themselves!”

Sheen blamed his firing – not on his recent media onslaught – but on his former bosses not understanding the actor.

“Whatever. I guess if you can’t process a guy, or realize his value, you must terminate him,” Sheen told Bush. “That’s real high-brow thinking, really evolved thinking. I don’t know. It is what it is. I’m more worried about my children [Bob and Max] right now than any of this nonsense, you know.”

Sheen confirmed to Bush that he plans to move forward with potential legal action against his bosses for breach of contract.

“I think that they realized that,” Sheen said. “They exercised such a cheap move and [this is] so silly and so transparent and… it’s so juvenile. It is the work of infants. It is the work of silly infants and it’s just — if this is what it had to come to, to get me out of those silly shirts, then so be it. So maybe I’ll wear one, just on the final day when I go and remove all of their bazillions.”
