Boom! Charlie Sheen has just been fired from his CBS sitcom. “After careful consideration, Warner Bros. Television has terminated Charlie Sheen’s services on Two and a Half Men effective immediately,” the studio said via e-mail Monday afternoon. The studio tells Vulture that “no decision has been made about the future of the show,” but the fact that WBTV axed Sheen before CBS announced a cancellation of the series could indicate that the two parties are actively mulling continuing the series sans Sheen. Let the lawsuits begin.
UPDATE: Sheen’s responded to his dismissal via a statement to TMZ (natch!). “This is very good news,” the actor says. “They continue to be in breach, like so many whales. It is a big day of gladness at the Sober Valley Lodge because now I can take all of the bazillions, never have to look at whatshiscock again and I never have to put on those silly shirts for as long as this warlock exists in the terrestrial dimension.”
