Les Moonves: I want Charlie Sheen Back On ‘Two & A Half Men’

Written by Michael Lambarde on Mar. 23, 2011

Charlie Sheen, who earned criticism and a pink slip due to bashing the creator of Two and a Half Men, Chuck Lorre, on the radio, may now be getting his job back following his new-found-fame, according to Radar Online. The gossip site says that the President of CBS ,les Moonves, has been in discussions as of late with Warner Brothers, who canned Sheen, to get him back on board on the number one rated comedy series on television.

Moonves apparently spoke directly with Chuck Lorre, saying that he wants the network to “handle Charlie”. While that may be the case, it sure will be awkward around the set of Men if Sheen is rehired. “Moonves wants to get the show back on the air. He’s all for it. He says certain people need to forget anything and everything Charlie’s done recently and just move on with the business at hand,” a source said.

“The core issue is the volatile relationship between Charlie Sheen and Chuck Lorre. Moonves believes that if CBS and Warner Bros can find a way to get Charlie and Chuck speaking again, cooler head will prevail,” the source continued. Sheen has been on a roll as of late, being employed or not, as over a dozen of his live tours have sold out in the matter of minutes. At the rate Sheen is going, he is expected to generate over $7 million a month just from the touring North America.
