That's how I roll..
This may be the straw that breaks my resistance to Twitter - I may have to join up just to follow this new-world David Brent.
Wait, it's not a character? Winning!
Now that he has a bit of time on his hands, actor and keen supporter of LA's nose candy and helpful lady industries Charlie Sheen has decided to give forth on Twitter. They hardly represent a fascinating insight into the mind of the man who thought that trousering $2m an episode for Two And A Half Men was inadequate recompense …
.......but I did hear some clips from an interview with the guy yesterday. And I fully support his claims that he is worth 2 million for half an hour. He was hilarious. He came across as the bastard offspring of Steve Jobs and Colonel Gadaffi. Absolutely delusional, but a whole new level of entertainment.
Disclaimer: I am not a bad human being. If I could muster any sympathy for self promoting z-list celebutards then I'm sure I would have felt sorry for him.
"z-list? he is one of the most popular people on USA TV and been in loads of hollywood movies. hardly z-list."
Well he sure isn't A-list; he's a passable character actor at best. And with his show now off the air his only source of publicity is Twitter and whatever news channel he shows up on next.
He's also as mad as a bag of badgers.
Is entirely dependent on how much your product brings in. You deserve a share of the profits equivalent to your contribution to the product's success. If a show makes a fortune (which I'm assuming this show does) then Sheen deserves his cut.
Demanding millions of dollars is fine for a half hour show if the producers and station is getting millions more for doing sod all.
Metro even captioned a vidcap to that effect (yesterday, I think, but don't have it to hand).
This article dithers between deciding which names to use quite "effectively": http://www.metro.co.uk/showbiz/857046-menacing-charlie-sheen-loses-twins-to-ex-wife-brooke-mueller
Quality research though :)
It was all OK until they claimed he was sort of a nazi just because he was on Alex Jones radio show. The open letter issue happened later, probably because of the claim.
Alex Jones could be a paranoid freak, even at levels of insanity but he isn't anti semitic or nazi of any kind, guy is married to a jewish woman. These kind isn't either far left or far right.
For a TV star like Sheen, being called a nazi is clearly a death sentence. Of course I speak about his career. There seems to be another issue as all "alternative left media" of USA launched a full scale attack against him.
In fact, claiming such popular actors are some sort of closet nazis may really serve to the real neo nazis, not the bald punks but people having millions of dollars and wear ties. Remember the sopranos episode where some tough guy was calling everything genocide? Who went nuts against him?
Charlie Sheen however is some kind of hero for the post-modern man. He gets paid millions of dollars for not a lot of work (kudos) and openly admits to holding 72 hour drink & drug fuelled parties with willing and sometimes not so willing (see porn star locked in bathroom) pornstars.
To quote Ron Burgundy, "I've been coming to the same party for 12 years, and in no way is that depressing."
Charlie I salute you and your charming young lady friend.
I mean Charlie Sheen might be on the Z-list in most of Europe, but this is the US, a completely different culture. While "The Beatles" might be a very popular band in the UK, it's hardly known in the US. On the other hand, popular US band "The Shaggs" is essentially unknown in the UK.
Eh? The US hardly knows The Beatles? ROFLOL, not only were they extremely popular till recent years, it's one of the only bands from their era that anyone in US under 30 yo today would recognize. They were orders of magnitude more popular than The Shaggs in the US, which is a group I'd never even heard of as a lifelong US citizen.
"Olson and graphic designer Natalie Kenly are currently living with actor Charlie Sheen and are considered by him to be his "family". He also refers to them as his "goddesses". According to Sheen, she is now retired from the adult entertainment industry because of him."
I'd call him a bastard, but I like him too much...
