A short while ago CBS and Warner Bros. said they would never fire Charlie Sheen from his job on Â“Two and a Half MenÂ” because they felt he was a great actor and wanted him to remain. ThereÂ’s no question about the fact that Charlie is the main focus of the television program but is his acting the only reason why he will be playing Charlie Harper for as long as he wants?
TMZ has learned that Charlie cannot be fired from the show for doing drugs, or being with prostitutes, or destroying hotel rooms, or anything else he feels like doing because he doesnÂ’t have a Â“morals clauseÂ” in his contract.
If Charlie Sheen did have such a clause Warner Bros. and CBS would be able to give him his walking papers if he engaged in questionable conduct that makes “Two and a Half Men” look bad and possibly lose viewers.
Hanging out with hookers and partaking in cocaine parties would probably be a good enough reason for Charlie to be fired and adding everything else heÂ’s been doing would most likely put him on the unemployment line.
But CharlieÂ’s breathing easy and letting everyone know, “That’s my personal life. My contract protects me. They can’t fire me.”
Next week Charlie plans to go back to work on the show but thereÂ’s been no comment from the program when they want him to return. But return to work he will because, as Charlie said, Â“They canÂ’t fire me.Â”
Imagine working for a company that doesnÂ’t care what you do or how bad you make them or yourself look. A pay check is always guaranteed.
We should all have it so good.
