Here is a tip for other Hollywood actors. If you want to sue a studio over breach of contract, do not go to the roof of a building with a large machete and scream “I’m free at last.” As always, my thoughts go to his lawyer . . .
That was the latest scene in the sage of Charlie Sheen after he was fired by Warner Bros. from the show “Two and a Half Men.” While watching this video, I could not help but think of this guy’s lawyer sitting in his office preparing a breach of contract claim when his client suddenly comes on television waving around a machete and talking about slitting the throats of the defendants. Ironically, absent of morality clause, Sheen had a case for breach. However, the key is to argue that you really did not want to be fired. Sheen was able to keep this line up to his suspension — stating that he was ready to go back to work.
I will not get into the report that Sheen was drinking from a bottle of “Tiger Blood.” I expect that came with the machete.
