So, it came out...Charlie Sheen’s estimated rate per episode is $1.2 million for the next two years…that makes him one of the highest paid TV actors working right now. CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler defended Charlie’s raise, and told everyone at the upfronts, “Because the show is called ‘Two. And. A. Half. Men,’” she replied, enunciating each word. “It’s not called ‘One and a Half.’ Because it is the show, his point of view. He’s a big star. We’re so thrilled to have him back. I think we value our stars and our actors. They brand the show. And he’s a huge part of it.”
So there you have it…the dude threatened to walk, and they gave him what he wanted. I don’t generally find a problem in actors’ negotiating tactics…I just find a problem in Charlie lending a statement claiming that his “potential walk-off” wasn’t an eleventh hour negotiating ploy. Anyway…congrats on the raise and renewal. Hope you get your life together.
