Despite all the very serious talk about getting Charlie Sheen the help he needs, Warner Bros. has apparently changed their tune on the Two and a Half Men hiatus because filming will resume in as little as three-to-four weeks and make up the missed episodes so the crew gets paid. TMZ reports:
Sources connected with the show tell us … although nothing is in stone … they’re told by the addiction specialist that Charlie could be back to work next month. If that happens, producers would most likely make up the two missed shows at the end of the production season.
Bottom line — no one will lose money and the show could be back on track.
While it’s nice to see the little people aren’t getting the shaft in this Pretend to Cure Charlie Circus, I love how we’re supposed to believe a credible addiction specialist looked at Charlie Sheen and went, “Oh, what, this guy? Four weeks. Tops,” instead of the more believable response of loading two shotguns and sending in a priest to negotiate.
PRIEST: Chahlee? It’s Father O’Malley. We just want to talk to ya, son.
CHARLIE: There is no Charlie. Only blow.
PORN STAR: *from basement* Help! There’s eight of us tied to the same radiator! Please, the sex is only two minutes long!
CHARLIE: Bentleys! Bentleys! $30,000! Bentleys!
PORN STAR: Never mind! — Can mine be pink?
PRIEST: I didn’t sign on for naked women. Best o’ luck, son. I’ll be praying for ya.
