Charlie Sheen‘s latest webcast is almost in no way similar to his previous three. It’s delivered directly into a camera, and Charlie pays little (if any) attention to the objects that adorn the room he’s sitting in. There’s no complaining about not being paid for drinking what I suspect was Orangina, or how helicopters have “noise attached” to them. Instead, it’s a full-on attack about the people he worked with on Two and a Half Men — Chuck Lorre, CBS’ Les Moonves, and Warner Bros.’ Bruce Rosenbloom, and it appears Charlie considers this webcast to be a State of the Union of sorts, where his message is delivered without being peppered with eerie observations about the invention of telephones (for a change). He calls his dismissal from the show “completely and entirely illegal,” and quotes “the decision to choose an enemy” from somewhere, and then it begins to take the form of what we’ve seen before — when he thanks us for watching by calling us “undigested hummus who trade real-estate for this fire dance.” But before you watch it, here’s an explanation of why Charlie’s so upset that won’t confuse you by referencing a party dip.
Sheen’s anger over his firing is mirrored by his lawyer, Marty Singer, who says he will file a lawsuit against Warner Bros. and Chuck Lorre for working together to find cause to put Charlie out of work. Singer has said, “This is about the hostility between Chuck and Charlie that has gone on for years. This is Chuck conspiring with Warner Bros. to get rid of him].” But since the studio is ready and prepared to fight in such a battle, Singer is speaking publicly about the firing of Charlie as a means of trying to hurt the network by turning its viewers against it. Singer also stated they believe they got rid of Charlie because “Chuck Lorre has a better deal and stands to make more on his other shows [The Big Bang Theory and Mike & Molly] than on Two and a Half Men, so he has an interest in making those shows flourish at the expense of [Charlie’s] show.” Warner Bros. lawyer, John Spiegel, has replied to Singer with, “This is not about Chuck Lorre. It’s about a serious health issue that has rendered Charlie Sheen unable to perform the essential duties of the position.” Whether or not these webcasts are a testimonial to that statement continues to be debated.
