After the second episode of the new series of Two and a Half Men aired last night, minus one Charlie Sheen, it was announced he had come to a settlement with Warner Brothers.
The two parties were said to of reached a “confidential settlement of a lawsuit the actor brought over his firing” in the e-mail statement they said “Warner Bros. Television, Chuck Lorre and Charlie Sheen have resolved their dispute to the parties’ mutual satisfaction. “ However it doesn’t seem like the conditions and payments made will be released to the public anytime soon as they seem keen on keeping those details under wraps.
It has been reported though by various publications that both parties were close to agreeing a $25m payoff for Charlie Sheen, which is way short of the $100m which he was seeking when he got dismissed from the successful show.
It appears though, on review of current ratings for this series of Two and a Half Men, the sacking wasn’t a bad move as they hit all-time highs with Ashton Kutcher managing to define his own character within the show in a short space of time.
