Sweet. Seriously, it’s sweet. Charlie Sheen got booed off the stage by people who paid money to see Charlie Sheen! This is how the “Violent Torpedo of Truth” made its debut in the Motor City Saturday.
What couldn’t be done by Charlie versus a porn star (why are there no porn character actors, only stars?) at the Plaza, or Charlie versus Chuck Lorre at Warner Brothers was done by Charlie on his own. Tonight qualifies as career suicide–show biz death at one’s own hands!
The most important thing to be gleaned from what went down at the Fox Theater in Detroit is writers rule!
Charlie may think he was everything to “Two and a Half Men.” He was not.
He was funny because the writing was funny. If Charlie could deliver well that was just a bonus.
Charlie was probably confused by Chuck Lorre’s ability to fashion stories in his own own voice. He mistakenly thought the dialog was actually Charlie speaking.
Guess he knows now.
As ‘talent’ I want to side with talent. Charlie Sheen made that totally impossible. A jerk is a jerk is a jerk.
In the land of literal and metaphorical whores Warner Brothers made what seems like a morally correct decision in letting him go. If there was any question til now tonight Charlie confirmed the judgement.
