Two and a Half Men has long-since faded from the CBS spotlight, and erstwhile series star Charlie Sheen himself has been understandably quiet since news of his HIV diagnosis last year. Now, a new interview with Matt Lauer sees the star with a long list of regrets, among them the controversial exit that nearly ended Two and a Half Men altogether.
As was widely rumored yesterday following NBC’s official notice that Charlie Sheen would be making a “revealing personal announcement,” the actor has come forward to publicly reveal that he is HIV positive. Sheen’s appearance on the Today show to declare this intimate battle seems solemnly appropriate given how highly-publicized and well-documented his struggles have been throughout the years.
We’ve mostly stayed away from any ‘Two and a Half Men’ hubbub since Charlie Sheen’s crazy days settled down, and Angus T. Jones similarly talked himself out of a job, but with the CBS comedy’s series finale firmly set for February 19, we’re at least curious if Charlie Sheen can negotiate a return appearance. Judging by Ashton Kutcher’s coy performance in a recent ‘Ellen’ interview, that looks to be the case.
Whereas CBS' decision to not move forward with 'HIMYM' spinoff 'How I Met Your Dad' proved pretty surprising, the fate of 'Two and a Half Men' was long overdue. The Ashton Kutcher comedy will indeed return for season 12 this fall, though the network finally confirmed that one of Chuck Lorre's flagship vehicles will come to a merciful end with a series finale thereafter.
Now almost three-quarters of the way through its 100-episode order, FX's Charlie Sheen-centric 'Anger Management' continues raging along week after week, the latest episodes of which will come home in the upcoming 'Anger Management' Volume 3 Blu-ray and DVD release on April 15. To celebrate, we've got an exclusive look at the Volume 3 gag reel, including some scandalous cosplay, Charlie's Hunter S. Thompson impression and more!
The 1988 Western flick 'Young Guns' featured an ensemble of "who's who of '80s" talent -- including Emilio Estevez, Charlie Sheen and Kiefer Sutherland -- in a telling of the adventures of Billy the Kid during the Lincoln County War in New Mexico in the late 1800s. A smashing success at the box office, 'Young Guns' spawned a sequel and has become something of a classic in its own right. Twenty-six years later, we revisit the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
Oliver Stone's 'Platoon' was released in 1986 and was based on the director's own experiences fighting in the Vietnam war. The film marked the first time a Vietnam veteran made a film about the war, and earned Oscars for both best picture and best director. It also helped launch the careers of young actors like Charlie Sheen and Johnny Depp. 27 years later, we revisit the cast of this classic film and see where they are now.
'Machete Kills,' Robert Rodriguez's follow-up to 2010's 'Machete,' ditches the grindhouse aesthetic and homage, and instead tries to emulate a late-'80s, early-'90s action flick -- basically, Rodriguez made the kind of movie he often makes. The result is an uninspired, joyless and oft-trashy exercise in self-indulgence. Rodriguez has spent his career making films the way he wants in his own backyard, and while you kind of have to admire the audacity of it all, the intent is questionable at best.
Assured of its 100-episode future and ignored by press as it may have been, FX's Charlie Sheen-fronted 'Anger Management' still managed to make waves in the past few months with the abrupt and controversial dismissal of series star Selma Blair. Blair's episodes continue to air until replacement Laura Bell Bundy steps in, but what does Sheen have to say in finally opening up about Blair's departure?
Hard to believe we're still writing about 'Two and a Half Men' by the 11th season, though the upcoming CBS run of the longrunning comedy may prove its most-watched in years after yet another main character leaves the show behind to become less of the original 'Two and a Half Men.' We know Amber Tamblyn will join the series as Charlie's long-lost lesbian daughter, but what does her first appearance look like?
