Charlie Sheen, WB, Chuck Lorre Close To Settlement

According to the Hollywood Reporter and the L.A. Times, the battle between Charlie Sheen and Warner Brothers and Chuck Lorre may soon be history. Mr. Sheen and the studio and Mr. Lorre faced off with competing claims earlier this after Mr. Sheen left the popular CBS show "Two and a Half Men" amid allegations that he was unable to meet his obligations under the contract he had with Warner Brothers and Mr. Lorre. Under the agreement he is likely to receive a payout in the millions in return for dropping his wrongful termination claim. More here from the Los Angeles Times.

At the Emmy Awards on Sunday, September 18, Mr. Sheen made a friendly gesture toward the "Two and a Half" cast before presenting the "Best Performance By An Actor in a Comedy Show" Award. Saying he wanted to "get something" off his chest, he told what must have been a slightly apprehensive audience, "From the bottom of my heart I wish you nothing but the best from this upcoming season. We spent eight wonderful years together and I know you will continue to make great television." He then presented the names of the nominees. The winner was Jim Parsons, star of another Chuck Lorre comedy, "The Big Bang Theory."
