Chuck Lorre Writes College Recommendation Letter for His Mom Star Sadie Calvano – and It Works

Originally posted 06/01/2015 03:30PM

There's no doubt Chuck Lorre can write a hit TV comedy series, but how about a college recommendation letter?

Lorre, who has created such legendary shows as Two and a Half Men and The Big Bang Theory, was recently asked to do just that by his Mom star Sadie Calvano, and he said penning the letter was "an honor."

"She is such a terrific young lady, hardworking, very smart," Lorre said Sunday at the 5th Annual Critics' Choice Television Awards in Beverly Hills, California. "Any college would be lucky to get her."

Charlie Sheen Calls Two and a Half Men Creator Chuck Lorre 'Immature and Completely Unevolved'

Remember that Two and a Half Men finale oh, say, three weeks ago?

Apparently Charlie Sheen has been lying in wait all this time, poised to strike – and now he's finally responded.

When asked on Monday about Men creator Chuck Lorre's parting shot (via the series finale's end title card), Sheen sent a fairly threatening message to his former boss via TMZ: "You must feel safe, motherf---er. You must feel safe where you live."

Producer: Charlie Sheen Was Offered a Cameo in Two and A Half Men Finale

Charlie Sheen had his chance.

But the actor, who infamously starred in – and flamed out of – Two And a Half Men, decided to skip Thursday night's finale.

As he typically does, Executive Producer Chuck Lorre got the last word, explaining in his end-of-show vanity card how the negotiations played out:

Two and a Half Men Finale: Did Charlie Sheen Show Up?

Originally posted 02/19/2015 11:20PM

Sorry, Charlie.

Despite publicly saying he'd love to make a guest cameo on Two And a Half Men during its final season (not to mention promos teasing a return), Charlie Sheen didn't make it to Men's series finale on Thursday night. (However, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Christian Slater and John Stamos all made sweet cameos!)

The show kicked off by alluding to the fact that Charlie Harper (Sheen) never actually died four years ago – there was no death certificate! No one saw the body! Crazy Rose (Melanie Lynskey) was keeping someone alive in a pit in her basement!

And as it turned out, he didn't actually die. Rose admitted she'd been keeping him prisoner as punishment for cheating on her on their honeymoon in Paris with a French maid, a mime and a bisexual goat.

It's Official: Charlie Sheen Will Have a Presence on the Two and a Half Men Finale – But There's a Catch

Originally posted 02/06/2015 07:30AM

Either it's a painful case of bait-and-switch, or CBS really wants us to think that Charlie Sheen will be back for the Two and a Half Men series finale.

What got our hopes up? The network released the title for the hour-long series finale that's set for Thursday, Feb. 19.

It's called "Of Course He's Dead – Part One and Part Two."

Two And A Half Men's Angus T. Jones Claims He Was 'A Paid Hypocrite'

Originally posted 03/19/2014 12:45PM

Angus T. Jones grew up in front of America's eyes, but now the former Two and a Half Men star is finding a way to shine outside of Hollywood – from the pulpit.

"It was making light of topics in our world that are really problems for a lot of people. I was a paid hypocrite because I wasn't okay with it, but I was still doing it," Jones, who after 10 years left his role as Jake on the still-thriving CBS sitcom, says of the series – which, in 2012, he had publicly called "filth".

"I really want to be able to come into the light, because I know that's where genuine healing is," a bearded Jones, told KHOU in Houston, where the 20-year-old is now working with the World Harvest Outreach Church.

He also attends college in Colorado and is a close follower of the Seventh Day Adventist Church.

New show. New attitude. New Charlie Sheen?

"No one seems to want to remember," says the former Two and a Half Man star, now with a new FX series, Anger Management, referring to his headline-making rants of exactly a year ago, "they all talk about 'tiger blood' and 'winning' and everything. But no one talks about what I was so upset about."

Sheen, 46, directed his anger at the time against Two and a Half Men's executive producer, Chuck Lorre. The upshot was that the CBS sitcom – which once earned Sheen a record $1.25 million per episode – was recast with Ashton Kutcher.

Ashton Kutcher hasn't spoken publicly about estranged wife Demi Moore since her health crisis began in January – but he has seen her, a source tells PEOPLE.

The Two and a Half Men star has visited since her hospital stay, but "they are not getting back together," according to the source.

He went because "he knew it was important to her daughters," says the source. Moore has three girls with ex-husband Bruce Willis. Daughter Rumer, 23, remains especially close with Kutcher despite his split from Moore.

Charlie Sheen says that last year's headline-making antics are indeed a thing of the past.

"I'm not crazy any more. That was an episode," Sheen says, laughing, as he spoke with reporters at Sunday night's Fox Network Television Critics Association party in Pasadena, Calif.

"I think I'm a different person than I was yesterday. Everything is a lot more mellow and focused and much more rooted in reality."

Sheen, 46, couldn't be more Zen about his new FX show, Anger Management, in which he will star and produce. He reports that casting is underway and that they will shoot 10 episodes in six weeks.
