Charlie Sheen Talks Former Costars, Fighting Dr. Drew, and His Future
Charlie Sheen broke his one minute of silence to call into Los Angeles radio station K-Earth 101 this morning. He chatted about his former “Two and a Half Men” co-stars, Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones, as well as to discuss Rob Lowe, who is in talks to replace on the hit CBS show.
Sheen also spoke about traveling “soon” to Haiti with Sean Penn and Scarlett Johansson, who he said he hopes “live forever together,” and how he’d like to “jump in the ring” with addiction specialist Dr. Drew Pinsky.
After calling Cryer a “troll” yesterday,” Sheen today said he was sorry for calling him a name and offered “a half apology – it’s an apol!” He wouldn’t fully divulge what he spoke to “Half Man” Jones about, but said the teen actor had “an interesting take… He’s a beautiful young man… you should reach out to him.”
Sheen also said he spoke to possible replacement Rob Lowe. “He’s a buddy of mine. He’s a beautiful man. He’s a brilliant actor, and I hope he does it and kicks its a** because I still get (paid),” said Sheen. And should Lowe or John Stamos, whose name has also been bandied about, take the job, Sheen recommended, “Don’t look at the 177 episodes that I brilliantly did. Just park those! Ignore the 400 reruns every week that you can’t avoid. Cancel your Sheen app. I would recommend, in all seriousness, that they make it their own.”
The star, however, was less kind to Dr. Drew, who he’d be willing to fight. “Bring it little man,” he challenged. Sheen said, “My days on TV might be a little bit behind me,” adding, “I got no job, I got no dough.” Listen to the full interview below and tell us what you think.
