As successful as Charlie Sheen's road trip has been, the actor turned wannabe folk hero is already setting his eye on...the job he had himself forcibly removed from. Yes, that's right, Charlie Sheen is already claiming that he's in talks to make his triumphant return to "Two and a Half Men." The only problem? Everyone else says those discussions haven't, and will not, happen.
Of course, Sheen and his lawyers claim that those claims about his initial claims (say that three times fast) are incorrect. The only thing that's clear for the moment is that this whole affair is a gigantic mess and likely won't be resolved any time soon. Luckily for Charlie, he's got plenty to fall back on. Like his own signature Sex Doll, lovably named "Crackhead Charlie." Yes, this is a real thing.
On a more serious note, Sheen's tour does seem to be picking up since its initial not-quite-winning fan problems. A show in Toronto received lots of attention after Sheen was sternly warned not to smoke on-stage by a Canadian Health Promotion Minister warned the actor that he could be fined for such an act and then directed him towards a hotline number he could call about quitting smoking. On that same stop, Sheen also toasted the ashes of an audience member's dead husband. Tellingly, though, Ricky Gervais apparently views Charlie Sheen as so much of a sad joke in his current state that the ferocious comedian refuses to joke about him.
