Two and a Half Men is the biggest rated sitcom, right? Charlie Sheen is the best paid sitcom actor, right? So, being in Two and a Half Men should be probably all fun and job security, right? Wrong!
Two and a Half Men went on a forced hiatus so Charlie Sheen can deal with rehab.
But today, on The Dan Patrick Television Show, 9AM- Noon on DirecTV´s The 101 Network actor Charlie Sheen joined Dan and the team to talk about his recent pep talk to UCLA baseball, as well as some of the recent news surrounding him.
Charlie Sheen Interview on The Dan Patrick Show
Charlie Sheen interview on what is happening with Two and a Half Men:
“We are on forced hiatus. They said, ‘You get ready and we’ll get ready.’ And I got ready and went back and nobody’s there. I don’t know what to tell you, Dan. Nobody is there…I don’t know what to tell you, man. I’m here and I’m ready. They’re not. Bring it, you know?”
Charlie Sheen interview on when will Two and a Half Men start shooting again:
“I believe August of 2014 at this pace. I don’t know, it’s supposed to be the 28th or the 29th. That’s what it is! It’s the 29th of the non-leap year.”
Charlie Sheen interview on when he wants to go back to work:
“Yeah. I’m a man of my word, I have a contract. They said get your act together and I did. I think just maybe it was a timing thing. I didn’t think it was going to happen this fast. Check it, it’s like I heal really quickly. But I unravel pretty quickly. So get me right now, guys.”
Charlie Sheen interview to explain how he came up with his speech for the UCLA baseball team:
“I realized what props I was holding. I had a bottle of chocolate milk and I had rumors that I’ve had problems with, I don’t know, crack, and it just came out of me like poetry, Dan. Like poetry…Thank God, [the coach] told me to tell them congrats in the World Series last year. I wasn’t watching a lot of that, you know, at the time. So I walked over and said, ‘Hey guys, congrats on the World Series last year.’ So, he gave me my first line. Which is good, a good place to start, right? Well, people kind of know I’ve had some problems lately and I’m sort of notorious for sort of surfacing and going deep undercover, deep under-ground. So, I said stay away from the crack, which I think is a pretty good advice unless, you can manage it socially, Dan. If you can manage it socially, then go for it, but not a lot of people can.”
Charlie Sheen interview on whether or not he thought he could manage crack socially or not:
“Well, yeah, but that kinda blew up in my face…like an exploding crack pipe, Dan. Sorry”
Charlie Sheen interview on whether or not he is sober and clean now:
“Oh, yeah. One hundred percent, one hundred percent. Peeing clean. I just said pee on your show, sorry man. I feel great, man. I feel great. I am here and ready…I’m actually hungry.”
Charlie Sheen interview on why being creatively hungry is something of a new phenomenon for him:
“A little bit, yeah. Because you do something like this [Two and a Half Men] and you get into kind of a, I don’t want to say a redundant pattern, but it gets very sort of, uh, redundant. And you gotta find things about it to reignite the passion. The passion can always be there if the pilot light is still burning.”
Charlie Sheen interview on why he was at UCLA in the first place:
“We’ve been hitting there for years. I made a nice donation to the team years ago and they said, anytime and I took them up on it. I’m a self-taught left handed hitter, but not until I was an adult.”
Charlie Sheen interview on the donation he made to the UCLA Bruins:
“Ten grand. For new uniforms or bats or something. It seems like everyone is always focusing on football and baseball, it’s always like, you guys can use all that old gear.”
Charlie Sheen interview on who is more valuable – him to CBS or Albert Pujols to the Cardinals?
“Well, duh. No I’m joking. We’re both on the talent side and when you’ve got something, you got a commodity, when you become a commodity, it’s on a different level. I’m a humble guy and I’d like to believe that Albert is.”
Charlie Sheen interview on if he had a do-over, would he be a great baseball player or great actor?
“Oh gosh, wow. Great baseball player but here’s the problem, I’m 45 now and all the girls say I look 35 but I’d have been retired by now.”
