Charlie Sheen's gotten the boot from one sitcom, but there are reports flying about that he's getting ready to land another.
According to TMZ, the actor – who was fired from his “Two and Half Men” gig back in March and was subsequently replaced by Ashton Kutcher – is in talks to get his own sitcom on an unnamed broadcast network.
The site reports that Sheen's in "deep negotiations" to crank out a sitcom that would be written around him. Apparently if the deal actually happens, the show wouldn't need a pilot and would go straight to series, airing as early as January.
However, there's still the question as to what mystery network is interested in taking on a rumored Sheen show. According to Deadline, ABC, CBS and NBC aren't in on it, which leaves Fox, the same network where Sheen had an "exploratory meeting" in March.
Deadline reports that there are those in the industry who aren't sure who would take the actor on at this point, with an anonymous studio exec saying, "He is uninsurable."
MSNBC's the Scoop cites an unnamed source claiming this is just a rumor planted by Sheen's camp to keep the conversation going about the actor, who's been laying relatively low.
NOT WINNING . . . SORRY . . . NOT WINNING!
Charlie is so much funnier than that b!tch Kathy Griffin.
He'll be dead in a couple of years anyway. His heart can only take so much coke before he ends up with a massive myocardial i.
He deserves another chance, his humor is a bit dry but he is actually quite funny.I'd watch his show out of curiosity.
It's going to be called TrainWreck.
A half an hour of a doped up ignoramus spouting off that he's winning.
His own sitcom? maybe he could get Mel Gibson?
That is one show that will get huge ratings the 1st time out and wither on the vine. A production company has to be very stupid to bet on that idiot.
Watch, they will pay him 3 million to have a tantrum.
no way hosea ! he insulted the entertainment industry jews. his career is kaput.
NO WAY. No neww series for charlie. He insulted THE TRIBE in hollywood. Unless he teams up with mel gibson his acting days are over.
I'll give it a look.
I will actually be co-starring with Charlie. I will be playing his agent. The show will air on Fox & it will be about an actor who tries to locate his agent so he can find some good Hollywood roles. The name of the show will be called: "Where's my Weiner?"
he used to be something to notice in the 80s and 90s.....now.....not so much!
Good for you chuck, you got robbed ! You go boy!!!!!
If you think he got robbed, I'd hate to see how YOU treat people.
For sure I would give him another chance and see what he is up to. If it is a good show, then he is back and if not, then he flaps...once more. Every one deserves a second chance. For Charlie it could be his last one....and....no more drug binges !
I think he is a good actor. I still enjoy the reruns of Two and a Half Men. He's funny. He's still have his job today if he hadn't let the drugs take him down. Once he sobered up, I'm sure he is embarrassed as heck about the stupid things he said and did.
Considering the rants after he came down i'm not sure embårassed is in charlies vocabulary.
He is just getting one because he is a Mormon. The mormons run Hollywood.
Oh look, they're still printing stories about this washed up old mess.
The Malibu Messiah is gonna leave some butt weasels in your lunchbox!!
ROCK ON CHARLIE!!
UGH – who would watch it ? He just isnt funny ! All he has going for him is sarcasm and who needs that ? He's not even good looking ... Sorry Charlie ...
