Charlie Sheen is likely to leave “Two and a Half Men” following the filming of the seventh series. Sheen has been in rehab since February and returns there after filming each night.
“Charlie’s just done,” said a source. “He's quietly telling his friends he's not coming back." Though the network had hoped that would return for an eight series he has turned down the deal.
A source also reported that Sheen wishes to focus on movies. Sheen is set to star in the upcoming “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps” a sequel to the 1987 movie and he wishes to pursue further roles.
Sheen entered rehab following being charged with assault arising from a fight with his wife last December. This charge could result in up to three years in prison. His jury trial will take place in July.
CBS and “Two and a Half Men” producer, Warner Brothers, issued a statement of support in February when Sheen entered rehab. Neither group nor Sheen have chosen to comment on this recent news.
