Charlie Sheen’s Latest Breakdown
Given Charlie Sheen’s extremely volatile personality, it should come as no surprise to you that the self-proclaimed “bi-winning” actor has reacted poorly to the news that Ashton Kutcher will be replacing him on “Two and a Half Men.”
Demi’s hubby acted courteously, probably anticipating some backlash from Sheen…he released a statement saying, “I can’t replace Charlie Sheen but I’m going to work my ass off to entertain the hell out of people!” Fair enough. Of course, Charlie Sheen couldn’t help himself, and released his own statement to TMZ, wherein he said, “Ashton Kutcher is a sweetheart and a brilliant comedic performer. Oh wait, so am I… Enjoy the show America, Enjoy seeing 2.0 in the demo every Monday, WB. Enjoy planet Chuck, Ashton. There is no air, laughter, loyalty, or love there.”
C’mon Charlie, tell us how you really feel! I don’t think Ashton Kutcher expected much love from Charlie Sheen, but then, it’s not commonplace for actors to act out so bitterly (and honestly) in the public forum. Now that Charlie Sheen has done his own thing, he no longer needs to conform to Hollywood standards, and can pretty much say whatever he feels like, whether he insults people in doing so or not. In a way, it is refreshing that we finally have an actor who has given up sugarcoating things, but Sheen’s inclination towards extremism can be a bit flinch-inducing. Hopefully he won’t get stuck on heckling Ashton Kutcher, and instead pick up what dignity he has and move on with his life, and his career.
It did seem like Charlie Sheen expected to be invited back to Two and a Half Men, so the reality of Ashton Kutcher taking his place is surely coming as a healthy dose of reality. What are your thoughts? Do you think Ashton Kutcher will do a good job of replacing Charlie Sheen on the show?
