LOS ANGELES – Lawyers for the studio behind “Two and a Half Men” are rejecting Charlie Sheen’s claim that he’s in talks to return to the hit CBS sitcom.
A letter Thursday from attorneys for Warner Bros. Television to Sheen’s lawyer dismisses as “false” Sheen’s comments that discussions are under way to reinstate him. Details of the letter were confirmed by a person close to the situation who requested anonymity because they lacked authority to speak publicly.
Sheen told a Boston radio station Tuesday that there was an “85 percent” chance of his returning to “Two and a Half Men.” He was fired last month after outbursts directed at the show’s producer.
The letter from the firm of Munger, Tolles & Olson to Sheen’s attorney, Marty Singer, says there are no discussions regarding Sheen rejoining “Two and Half Men” and there will be none.
A call to Singer was not immediately returned.
