No puts Duckie in a corner! Someone, however, forgot to forward that memo to Charlie Sheen. Pretty in Pink actor Jon Cryer has joined Warner Bros. producers, CBS, and most other sober and clear-headed Americans on Sheen’s Shit List over his unwillingness to align himself with the trainwreck actor as he wages a public media war against his former employers.
After a hotel meltdown, an alleged drug overdose, and a 10-day media blitz blasting show bosses, Sheen was formally terminated from his role as hedonistic jingle writer Charlie Harper on TV’s Two and A Half Men. Being the beacon of good judgement that he is, naturally, Charlie’s taking his anger out on an appropriate target (NOT!): His former co-star on the CBS sitcom.
Sheen’s disappointed — To put it mildly… — in Cryer for not getting in touch with him after the remaining episodes of the current Men season were axed following Charlie’s “health emergency” last month.
“You’re with me, or you’re with the trolls. Obviously he’s (Cryer) with the trolls,” Sheen retorted during a chat with E! News Tuesday. “Jon has not called me. He’s a turncoat, a traitor, a troll. Clearly he’s a troll… Is it gonna take me calling him a traitor, juvenile and scared for him to get it?”
“I called him and he said, ‘I’m sorry bro, I’ve got, like, six calls on hold in front of you…’ and after, like, 30 minutes I was like, ‘To hell with this guy…’ He put me on forget,” he fumed. “What’s there to say? I’ll tell him ‘You’re a little late. Goodbye, troll.’ When I’m starring in multimillion-dollar films and he’s begging me for a supporting role I’ll say, ‘You left me out in the cold with all of your guilt and stupidity.’”
CBS has not announced whether or not it will greenlight a ninth season of Two and A Half Men, but John Stamos and Rob Lowe are the actors reportedly being courted to replace the ousted Sheen, if the show warrants a pickup.
