Charlie Sheen appears to be back on form after briefly softening his image by revealing he is launching a charitable foundation. The actor sent TMZ a copy of a letter filled with Sheen’s trademark insults for “Two and a Half Men” creator Chuck Lorre, just a day after word surfaced that Lorre had begun the process of retooling the show for life after Sheen.
The latest message from Sheen calls Lorre a “low rent, nut-less sociopath” and says, “No one cares about your feeble show without me,” TMZ reported. The attack followed news that Sheen’s former co-star, Jon Cryer, would see his role expanded in a retooled version of “Men.”
Sheen also wrote in comments aimed at Lorre: "Not even a phone call to the man that put you on the map. The man that put 500 million dollars in your pockets … I busted my ass for 8 years to support your vision."
As TVWeek reported Thursday, Sheen revealed a softer side when he unveiled plans for Sheen’s Korner as a charitable foundation, with the first beneficiary being assault victim and San Francisco Giants fan Brian Stow. The same day, we reported that Lorre was moving ahead with plans for a post-Charlie Sheen version of “Two and a Half Men.”
TMZ also has reported that there’s a 50/50 chance the show will not return for another season, saying a decision will be made by May 18.
