Charlie Sheen's final 'Korner' calls 'Two and a Half Men' firing 'illegal' - See video
"Sizzle. Losing. Bye," was Charlie Sheen's new catchphrase during his fourth and supposed final broadcast of his web streaming show "Sheen's Korner" on Tuesday night.
After opening with a montage of clips and sound bytes of Sheen's media appearances, a scene from his stint on "Two and a Half Men," and a clip from "Apocalypse Now," which starred his father Martin Sheen, a clean cut Charlie Sheen was shown glaring into a camera.
The production on the latest episode of "Sheen's Korner" looked significantly more polished than his previous videos which featured the actor flicking a lighter onscreen with messy hair. In this episode the actor, donning thick black glasses, seemed to be reading a pre-written diatribe off a teleprompter.
"What occurred yesterday was completely and entirely illegal," Sheen said, referring to his recent firing from "Two and a Half Men." He later added, "A high treason has occurred. The scales of justice are in a state of radical disarray."
The actor then spent the 10 minute-long broadcast targeting CBS executive Les Moonves, Warner Brothers Television executive Bruce Rosenblum as well as "Two and a Half Men" co-creator Chuck Lorre. He did have a few words for Warner Bros. Television president Peter Roth, saying his heart "was always rooted in fairness."
"How's last night's 2.8 in the demo feel?" Sheen said referring to the rating CBS received for Monday's rerun of "Two and a Half Men," according to Entertainment Weekly.
Sheen addresses Chuck Lorre as Chuck E. Cheeseball and says, "Think of me often, loser, during your most quiet moments." He added, "You picked a fight with a warlock, you little worm," before going off on an expletive-filled rant.
As the entertainment magazine notes, the latest episode of "Sheen's Korner" was seen by an average of 60,000 viewers, down from the 100,000 that tuned into the first episode.
Sheen, a 45-year-old actor and formerly the highest-paid star on television, has been making headlines due to a series of on-air rants and ramblings made after "Two and a Half Men" producers halted production on his CBS comedy series last month following insulting comments he made about the show's co-creator and his recent stint in rehab.
Last week, Sheen maintained that he has been sober for a while. His rants have spurred a number of catchphrases, such as "Duh, winning!" and "Tiger blood" and broke a Guinness World Record for reaching 1 million Twitter followers the fastest. The actor, who opened a social networking account after the scandal began, has since acquired more than 2 million.
Sheen is reportedly in talks with billionaire Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks basketball team, to possibly develop a reality series or talk show for the cable network HDNet.
"You've got somebody that everybody has a whole lot of interest in who's doing some interesting things, to say the least, and we always look for interesting programming by featuring interesting people doing interesting things," ESPN quoted Cuban, who owns HDNet, as saying before the Mavericks' game against the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday.
"I reached out and we've had some conversations, and we're going to work on doing some things," Cuban added. "Right now, we're taping a lot of different things that he's doing and we'll try to figure it out. It's still not 100 percent certain."
Sheen has not spoken about a deal but the actor did call Cuban "a mad genius" and named him as one of three "Gnarls Gnarlingtons," aka winners, on his first uStream webcast show, "Sheen's Korner," which took place on Saturday.
"We'll do something together, but it's not certain it will be a show," Cuban said. "It'll come down to what he wants do and what his situation is. We'll just figure it out from there, but it's a unique opportunity, I'll say that."
Meanwhile, Sheen is dealing with a custody battle over his twin sons Bob and Max, who turn 2 next week. Last week, Sheen said he and their mother, estranged wife Brooke Mueller, had come to a verbal agreement. She had filed a temporary restraining order against him earlier this month and removed their sons from his care, citing domestic violence and calling him "insane."
Sheen has denied her claims. The two married in 2008. The actor filed for divorce from Mueller in November.
In August 2010, Sheen pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge regarding a confrontation with Mueller that had occurred in December 2009. He was sentenced to 30 days in a rehabilitation center, 30 days of probation and 36 hours of anger management.
