Most of the attention he has garnered lately has come via the mighty Internet, but Charlie Sheen reemerged in the real world Monday to celebrate his firing from ‘Two And A Half Men’ like a dictator from the third world.
A triumphant Sheen stood atop a building in LA shortly after it was announced that he was getting the shaft from his beloved sitcom gig. Rather than sulk or feel sorry for himself, he took the moment to do what any rational, forward thinking actor would do; lean over the edge of a building sipping liquor while waving a machete.
Only ‘unemployed winners’ are allowed to parade around like that.
But his behavior has more than warranted a little concern on behalf of those who are paying attention. Sure, his Twitter tirades are hysterical, and his Ustream show ‘Charlie’s Korner’ had its moments, but are these little outings serving as proof that he is too nutty to hire?
That has yet to be seen, but the snippets from the letter he was handed by Warner Bros. are not so flattering. They claim his contract was subject to termination because of his recent alleged drug use—though his supporters feel it was his fiery war of words with Chuck Lorre that unsealed the deal.
Nonetheless, Sheen seems emboldened by his firing…and apparently so does his lawyer, who claims they plan to sue for the money Charlie would have earned had he continued filming this season.
Even better, it seems he is poised to keep running with his newly attained status as a social media God. His last tweet solicits applications for a Social Media Intern. The requirements? For starters, you have to be a winner with tiger blood. Oh, and it may help to have some social networking savvy.
We’ll have to see what comes of Charlie Sheen after being officially fired. Do you think he can work his way back into show business?
