Sheen’s $3 MILLION Price For Returning To ‘TWO AND A HALF MEN’!

By on 28 February, 2011

Charlie Sheen is starting to get more confident by the second, because now he’s demanding to be paid $3 million (£1.8 million) per episode to return to work on ‘Two And A Half Men‘, after accusing the producers of putting him through “psychological distress”!

Bosses of the hit series pulled the plug on the current season after Sheen‘s headline-grabbing personal dramas and his public rants against writer Chuck Lorre.

Sheen appeared on several TV interviews to give his side of the story and has explained to NBC host Jeff Rosen, in a chat which will air in the U.S. on Monday (28th February 2011), that he wouldn’t go back to the show unless he has a $1 million pay rise – insisting he’s “tired of pretending he’s not special”. Pretending? Really?

In the interview, Sheen states:

“I’m not angry , I’m passionate. Everybody thinks I should be begging for my job back and I’m just gonna forewarn them that’s gonna be everyone else that’s gonna be begging me for their jobs back. I’m a man of my word, I’ll finish the TV show, I’ll even do season 10 but at this point because of psychological distress I want $3 mil an episode, take it or leave it.

“Look at what I’ve been through. (I make) roughly ($2 million) now. I’m underpaid right now, for sure. If you look at the money that (the producers) are making yeah, it’s ridiculous. I’m tired of pretending I’m not special.”

Sheen sat down for the interviews last week and subsequent reports in the New York Post suggest the star is now preparing to sue TV bosses, as well as Lorre and Warner Bros. chiefs, for a staggering $320 million (£200 million).
