Two and a Half Men Wiki

Charlie Sheen (born Carlos Irwin Estevez; September 3, 1965) is an American actor and comedian. He is the actor who formerly played Charlie Harper on the hit show Two and a Half Men. He was born on September 3, 1965, in New York City. He is the youngest son of four children born to actor Martin Sheen and artist Janet Templeton. Production of Two and a Half Men went on hiatus in January 2011 while Sheen underwent a substance rehabilitation program in his home, his third attempt at rehab in 12 months.[1][2][3] The following month, however, CBS canceled the season's four remaining episodes after Sheen publicly made derogatory comments about the series' creator, Chuck Lorre,[4] and Warner Bros. banned Sheen from entering its production lot.[5] Sheen, already the highest-paid actor on television,[6] responded by publicly demanding a 50 percent raise,[7] claiming that in comparison to the amount that the series was making, he was "underpaid."[7]

Sheen was kicked off of Two and a Half Men on March 7, 2011.[8] He was replaced by Ashton Kutcher.[9][10] In the aftermath of his dismissal, Sheen remained vocally critical of Chuck Lorre,[11] and filed a wrongful termination lawsuit against Lorre and Warner Bros., which was settled the following September 26.[12] That same month, Sheen, while presenting an award at the Primetime Emmy Awards, addressed "everybody here from Two and a Half Men" and stated, "From the bottom of my heart, I wish you nothing but the best for this upcoming season. We spent eight wonderful years together and I know you will continue to make great television."[13]
