For anyone who saw the 20/20 interview, which might have been the best interview of all time just for shear entertainment value, what are your thoughts on the world of Charlie Sheen?

He is reportedly set to launch a $320 million lawsuit against CBS, Warner Bros. and Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre for “mental anguish” after production was cancelled. Do you think this is a smart move?
Do you really believe he was sober during this interview (despite drug tests that supposedly showed he was)?
Do you think his household of porn goddesses is fit for raising kids?
Or is he just an off-the-cuff, slightly crazy guy whose lifestyle you secretly are in awe of and root for, and think it's refreshing to see a Hollywood guy step outside of the PC-game and actually just tell it like it is...


“You borrow my brain for, like, five seconds and you’d be like, ‘Dude, can’t handle it — unplug this bastard! It fires in a way that is, I don't know, maybe not from this terrestrial realm. When you've got tiger blood and Adonis DNA, it's like, get with the program dude’” (...Charlie Sheen, 20/20 Interview)

I didn't see the interview but he just sounds like a man that has lost it. Sounds to me though like he's just pissin and whining stupid move though suing CBS seriously though mental anguish?

I remember when he was linked to Heidi Fleiss, and thought, wow, this dude will never work again. Then I saw him in Rated X with his brother, and thought, wow, probably will never work again. BAM, onto the #1 show in America. Hollywood is wacky and second, third and fourth chances run amok.

As for him, saw a little of the interview and it was like watching an episode of "Intervention." Hey, new series Chucky...."I ain't no addict." Now somebody hold up the bottle while I get his kids out of the house.

Wacky non PC, I think of Malkovich, or Oldman. Sheen, not so much. Him and Mel Gibson should do a drama together, call it "Denial."

The main is an egotistical train wreck.

I hope they boot him for good.

That was absolute freaking comedy gold!

Charlie Sheen is in that zone now where literally nothing he did could surprise us. The goddesses, Bree Olsen and the Nanny, was hysterical, too.

He's definitely lost it, and I feel bad for the kids (which I read got taken away yesterday), but I have to hand it to the guy: if the purpose is to a)rename the phrase "Party like Charlie Sheen", to the disappointment of rock stars everywhere, and b) make us all suddenly interested in everything he does, then Charlie Sheen is Winning! LOL

I get the feeling his lawsuit might not be as foolish as it may seem. It all depends on the wording of his contract when it comes to behavior, but the short account was that his producer said that if he said anything anti-CBS that he'd suspend him, and the show. Of course, this is what happened. It will be a big lawyer-fest, either way.

I hope he gets booted, not because of anything he did, but because it would mean the end of that dumb-ass show. Somehow, its the top comedy, despite not being the least bit funny. Charlie's recent antics are way better than umpteen seasons of "hey, I'm a cad and my brother's a nerd! (cue laugh track)".

I can't decide if this is complete pathertic or incredibly hilarious. I wonder if this is all an act, trying to prove the absurdity of the scrutiny he's under. But he is highly arrogant and narcissistic. Dragon blood and Adonis dna? Come on dude. If he wants to live with two porn stars, more power to him. I don't care about that, being porn stars doesn't mean they are horrible and couldn't be good to his kids. But, in his shoes I'd not expose my kids to them/that at this stage.

He was really trying to say the most off the wall things. Just to get a rise out of people. Is he clean, doubtful. Is he crazy, surely. Crazy like a fox, quite possibly.

Agree with LadyX... the best part is that stupid show is off the air.

I agree, get rid of the sitcom and head to MTV for your own reality show, Charlie! It will be a guaranteed smash hit! icon_biggrin

He just joined twitter yesterday, and he has 750,000 followers overnight.

Regardless of his shock value antics and over-fried brain, entertainment is entertainment... and people want to ride the CrazyTrain if Sheen is the conductor. All aboard, baby!

CBS's action strikes me as emotional more than logical. They're butthurt that Sheen thumbed his nose at them after they temporarily halted the show, so they scrapped the rest of the season. If he's willing to show up to work, which I've heard nothing otherwise, and CBS chooses not to continue the show, then they're leaving tens of millions on the table (which from what I hear, are precious millions for the big networks these days) simply because they didn't care for how their biggest star reacted publicly toward them. Not only that, but the crazier he gets, the higher the ratings go, week by week.

They can survive on reruns for now, but unless he spirals into a place where he can't work long-term, it will be tough to explain to stockholders how hurt feelings caused them to put a bullet in their number one comedy.

My first reaction to this was the guy is a self absorbed ass and who gives a fuck! After reading this thread my opinion remains the same.

I didn't see the interview, but reading the excerpts and knowing what I know about Charlie I believe that he has discovered some time ago the truth in that phrase "There is no such thing as bad publicity"...

With his track record, he'll probably win the lawsuit and come back with an even more popular TV show...

Hey Jeff...let me know if you decide to go out there and hang out with Charlie, maybe I'll join you...

I'm thinking we could do this as part of a "research project" for an upcoming story to be featured on Lush...and if we declare ourselves to be "professional erotica writers" the whole thing just might be tax deductible...

Just thinking out loud here...

I don't think he's necessarily headed for a train wreck. The latest craziness is really nothing at all new for him. Drugs and porn stars have been his thing for his entire adult life. When he first became famous, one of his early girlfriends was Ginger Lynn. And if you know who that is, you must be as old as Charlie Sheen! Anyhow, he seems to have done just fine. Personally, I find his string of insane interviews to be highly entertaining stuff. The guy is an actor and entertainer. So, I suspect that he understands exactly what he's doing, and I wouldn't take it too seriously.

Keith Richards is still alive and going strong, and he's been living the rock star life even longer than Sheen. It's not for everyone, but it can be done.

My only qualm is his kids. It's one thing for an adult to choose to live that way. It's another thing to impose it on a 2-year-old. Probably not the best environment to raise kids, all things considered.

I like it! Party Like Charlie Sheen!

I've never seen a single episode of the show, and I don't plan to. I swore off sitcoms when the interwebz was invented. There are so many more interesting things going on in the world than what Carlos Irwin Esteves has been up to lately... That said, I wouldn't mind spending a week of vacation time in Charlie's World. Probably do irreparable damage to my liver, but hell - you only live once.

Maybe that's the ploy: Buy up a large chunk of a willing Caribbean island (just spit-balling here, but think 'Jamaica'), and turn that piece of the rock into an all-inclusive, adults-only resort.

"Charlie's World"...

You would make millions...

The more I think about it, the more this smells like the real deal.

Quote:
So could he in fact have orchestrated this whole fiasco as a way of drumming up an even bigger fame than his role as the best-paid actor on television could provide? Could this be an elaborate game from a world-class player? The weird admiration that his sticking-it-to-the-man shtick has garnered would suggest that if he can just keep from dropping dead in the next five minutes, he's all but guaranteed a reality series, a multimillion dollar book deal, and all the goddesses he can handle. Not bad for a guy whose ex-wife just won a restraining order for claiming he was threatening to "cut your head off, put it in a box and send it to your mom," a man who had his children removed from his home by Los Angeles police Tuesday night. Winning!

I've always thought that a reality show would be a good way to go for him. He did call Hugh Hefner "an amateur" so I'm sure he's paving a way for that possibility. I don't think it's "an act" though. I don't think he would gamble custody of his kids by purposely acting this insane. I know he thinks when they grow up they will realize what a "rockstar" their dad is, but the reality is that he may have to wait until they are grown up to ever get to see them again. I think this is just Charlie being Charlie... going off the deep end. There are such conditions as cocaine-induced psychosis and schizophrenia, and by his own admission, he has been partying on lethal amounts for years. I genuinely think his brain has been fried just a little, and he probably needs some meds and psychiatric intervention to level him out again. In the meantime, he'll only get more famous by embracing the madness. Funny how everyone cheers for Charlie and fist-pumps with support over his meltdown, but when Britney Spears spiralled into crazy-ville, everyone watched in horror, called ambulances and judged her every move. You definitely see the differences in what's socially acceptable for one gender but not the other.

The interviews with him are only half the story. I admit I was a bit of a fan of Bree Olson/Rachel Oberlin so I know a bit about her and I'm sure I remembered this clip from something I had heard with her

My guess is you'd toss him in a blender and mix on high for 3 minutes with orange juice. Drink from a 32 ounce Big Gulp cup and enjoy the hallucinogenics for the next few days.

I'd prefer to be strapped down on a comfy mattress so I wouldn't hurt myself walking about.

this whole Charlie Sheen thing is pathetic, destructive and insane.

I have turned off anything to do with this man, who has lost touch with reality. And quite frankly, because he is so delusional, I am concerned about anyone related to him, their welfare.

I will not partake in watch a situation like this .... the next thing we will hear, he has died.

It wouldn't surprise me at all if he OD'd.

I read earlier they are trying to convince Rob Lowe to take his place and keep the show going. I doubt he'll go for it seeing he grew up with Charlie and Emilio.

I'm no media expert, but the fact that I had to google "John Stamos" to know who he was doesn't bode well for that choice. They might as well close up shop on that show.
