Charlie Sheen: "I Am On A Drug...It's Called Charlie Sheen"
When asked about his drug use in an exclusive one-hour interview with ABC’s Andrea Canning, Charlie Sheen said, “Yeah I’m -- I am on a drug... it’s called Charlie Sheen.”
Leading up to Sheen’s appearance on ABC’s "20/20" Tuesday night, the story continues to become more and more ridiculous.
Not only did he call his boss, Chuck Lorre, a “Nazi,” Sheen also says he is “at war” with the producers of CBS’s “Two and a Half Men,” who pulled the rest of the show's season Thursday night.
Sheen says that CBS is in breach of contract by canceling the last eight episodes of this season; the show itself has been on hiatus since Sheen entered rehab in January.
He has been texting several ABC News reporters saying he is clean, sober, willing to do a drug test and ready to go back to work.
The kicker is that he is now demanding an apology from Lorre.
Commentators are saying that Sheen, who gets paid between an estimated $1.2 and $1.8 million per episode, has a dead career in Hollywood.
The exclusive first looks of his interview break tomorrow morning at on MSNBC’s “The Today Show” at 7 a.m. with Jeff Rossen and on ABC’s “Good Morning America” at 7:30 a.m. For the full hour-long news special tune in on Tuesday, March 1 at 10 p.m. to ABC’s “20/20,” “Charlie Sheen: In His Own Words” with Andrea Canning.
