The latest antics by “Two and a Half Men” star Charlie Sheen apparently have CBS executives concerned and poised to take action, TheWrap reports.
Sheen returned to work today after a weekend spree in Las Vegas with porn stars, according to the story, and was expected to have discussions with the show’s producers and the network about what effect his partying might be having on his health and on the show.
“Two and a Half Men” is a huge hit for CBS, and Sheen is the highest-paid star in television, the story points out.
Sheen’s rep, Stan Rosenfield, said the issue has been blown out of proportion and noted that reports were indicating Sheen would fail to show up for work Tuesday–right up until the time when he did show up.
It could be that a “friendly chat” between Sheen and Chuck Lorre, executive producer of the show, is on tap, the story says, or it could be that something bigger is in the works–such as shutting down the show in midseason to send Sheen back to a treatment facility.
