Report: Charlie Sheen Won't Renew 'Two and a Half Men' Contract


Report: Charlie Sheen Won't Renew 'Two and a Half Men' Contract


In another version of the story, a source told TMZ that the actor actually doesn't want to quit but simply is not happy with the number that Warner Bros. offers.

Even before he infamously attacked his wife Brooke Mueller during Christmas holiday last year, Charlie Sheen has hinted that he's looking forward to retire from the show business. According to People's sources, the time is now. "Charlie's just done," said a set source. "And he's quietly telling his friends he's not coming back."

This means he will end his role as womanizer Charlie Harper on "Two and a Half Men" after the seventh season wraps up. His contract with CBS expired this year and he reportedly refused to sign a new contract that will extend the show to eighth season. "He wants to move on," said a friend. "Leaving is 100 percent his idea."

CBS would not comment on contract issues while Sheen's rep Stan Rosenfield could only confirm, "Charlie's deal is only through this current season." However, a source close to the show said "negotiations are ongoing and nothing has been determined."

Additionally, TMZ reported that Sheen is not quitting but simply not happy with the number that Warner Bros. offers. He's asking for $1.5 million per episode but the studio is only giving $1 million. "This deal will be made at midnight on the day CBS announces its new fall schedule [May 19]," the site's source said. "Everyone plays the brinksmanship game."

While attending Primetime Emmy Awards last year Charlie Sheen said, "I got five kids, I've got amazing wife. There is life outside of show business. It's been a great run. This is my last contract year, so maybe it's up to CBS and Warner Bros."
