Half of remaining 'Two and a Half Men' episodes are cut




The brain trust at Two and a Half Men have reportedly cut four of the remaining eight episodes of the season, since star Charlie Sheen is out of commission because of his rabblerousing. It's a good thing he doesn't seem at all bothered by that development, depending on whom you ask.

A source tells TMZ that show creator Chuck Lorre made the call to kill half the remaining shows on the slate when whooting resumes on Feb. 28, which doesn't make the crew all that happy. To make things worse, conflicting messages about the star's attitude over the issue abound.

"We've been left in the dark and now we have no pay for 4 episodes and all we hear is that Chuck is saying, 'They're not my problem,'" a member of the crew told the site.

Sheen had previously been quoted as saying he was ready to go back to work now, and even work weekends and past the previous shooting schedule to get caught up. Maybe Chuck and the producers were shuddering at the thought of having to rely on Sheen for another eight weeks.
