TMZ reports that Charlie Sheen, 45, is going to pay the “Two and a Half Men” crew a portion of their salaries for the two weeks the show has been down due to his ‘not-so-great’ behavior. Warner Brothers and CBS will pay the remaining portion.
Also, according to the source, “Men” star is ready to come back to work next week to complete the season although a CBS executive told the source that no one on the show is ready to go back to work on Monday and no one has asked the network to pay a third of the crew salaries for the downtime. A Warner Bros. executive added: “We sincerely hope that Charlie’s rehab is going well. We hope that he is healthy in the very near future and we look forward to the return of production of ‘Two and a Half Men.’”
The show is reportedly scheduled to be produced again at the end of this month, based on the assumption that Sheen can handle it.
