Sheen on ‘Two and a Half Men’ Return: ‘I Think We’re Getting Close’

Actor tells Philadelphia radio station a deal with studio, CBS may be near, but neither confirms that

Charlie Sheen is "absolutely" convinced "Two and a Half Men" will return, with "a few adjustments," he told a Philadelphia radio station Friday. But there was no indication from CBS or the studio that produces the show that he was right.

"I think we're getting close to something. I don't want to say what," he told Wired 96.5's "Chio and Shila" show, which scored the interview by flying a plane over Sheen's house with a banner asking him to call.

"But it just feels like the worm is turning, it feels like all parties myself excluded are finally waking up," Sheen said. "It's like some hot springs in Middle Earth is finally ready to explode outward and say, 'Here is it, here it is, embrace this man, embrace this man.'"

Asked if he meant he would embrace show creator Chuck Lorre or Lorre would embrace him, he said, "Well hello, duh. Figure that one out."

CBS and Warner Bros. TV, which produces the show, had no comment.

It was unclear whether Sheen's representatives are close to a deal with his employers or if the actor's comments are the latest suggesting he has a twisted take on reality. Either way, he sounded calmer than he has in other recent interviews, and the radio show's executive producer told TheWrap that Sheen was thoughtful and polite both on-and-off the air.

Sheen's comments come after another week of tension between him and the show's producers. On Monday, his attorney, Marty Singer, wrote to Warner Bros. demanding that Sheen be paid for the eight episodes the studio and CBS have cancelled this season over their troubles with TV's highest-paid actor.

Warner Bros. has agreed to pay the show's crew for four of the episodes, but not to pay Sheen, who would get about $16 million. The show went on hiatus Jan. 28 when the actor announced he was starting rehab, and shut down for the season after Sheen ripped Lorre in another radio show call-in.

"Absolutely the gig's coming back, and I have absolute faith in that, not hope because hope is for suckers," Sheen said. "I see us back on the air, and uh, with a few adjustments, and giving the people not only what they want but what they deserve, which is loyalty."

Of all the media outlets that scored interview with Sheen this week, Wired 96.5 was easily the most creative in going about it. The show hired a plane to fly over Sheen's house with the banner, which also offered him a job with the station.

The radio show's executive producer, who goes by "Joey B," told TheWrap that Sheen called within twenty minutes Thursday, and agreed to call back at 9 a.m. ET Friday. He called in two minutes late, and apologized profusely.

After Sheen's interview with the hosts, Joey B said, Sheen called him back to apologize further for the two-minute lapse.

As for the station's job offer: Sheen turned it down, but said he would make Philadelphia a "pit stop" in his travels.
