Why was Charlie Sheen fired from Two And A Half Men?
Sheen has a history with alcohol. During his time on the show, the actor was struggling with substance and alcohol abuse. He even had a conflict with the show’s creator, Chuck Lorre. So after the eighth season, the actor was fired from the show, and Ashton Kutcher came in to save the day.
In the show, Sheen’s character was killed off. His numerous mistresses had attended his funeral, and his opulent seaside home had been listed for sale.
The 57-year-old actors’ departure cost the show its viewership. There was a sudden drop in ratings as people missed his distinctive presence. The show also failed to maintain the same level of interest among fans, and thus concluded after four more seasons.
The relationship between The Rookie actor and Lorre has significantly improved since then. The duo collaborated on the comedy How to be a Bookie which will soon premiere on the Max platform.
Two And A Half Men is available to stream on Netflix.
