Did Charlie Sheen's career reach its pinnacle with his performance on the television series "Two and a Half Men"? This is a question that some fans and entertainment observers are asking themselves and when one considers where his career is at this might actually become the high point of his career.
When fans and some entertainment observers think about him they don't look back at his career when he was on his way up starring in movies such as "Wall Street" or "Major League". He earned much critical acclaim for his performance on television on "Spin City" but one would have difficulty being able to find a role which was more memorable than his portrayal of Charlie Harper, a womanizing, hard drinking talented slacker.
For eight seasons he was a virtual guaranteed ratings superstar, especially in his first seven seasons before he had his well publicized meltdown. What was overlooked by much of the general public but not his fellow actors prior to the meltdown was that Charlie Sheen was not a good actor while on "Two and a Half Men", he was a great actor who captivated audiences with his acting range and comedic timing. Whether one loved or hated him no one could dispute that he was sensational in his performance during his time on the show.
Unfortunately, his 'diva' conduct and comments toward the filmmakers of "Two and a Half Men" and his behavior on "Anger Management" might result in one of the more talented Hollywood actors sitting on the sidelines for a little while because in today's era of television and movie creation, such conduct is no longer tolerated.
As such the high point of Charlie Sheen's acting career might end up being "Two and a Half Men" and if so fans will look back on his time as the star of the show in awe because even actors as talented as Ashton Kutcher found it almost impossible to fill the shoes of the mercurial but superb actor Charlie Sheen.
Charlie Sheen, an actor of immense talent who if he is ever able to get control of his 'issues' could be a leading man that television networks and film directors would line up to have him work for them because he is truly a rare acting talent.
