Charlie Sheen wants $10 million for inadvertently hilarious memoir, 'When the Laughter Stopped'

Publishing houses, the line starts right here. Charlie Sheen is writing a book.

TMZ reports the recently unemployed actor has announced plans for a memoir about what led to the temporary/indefinite demise of "Two and a Half Men."

Parties interested in releasing the uncreatively-titled "When the Laughter Stopped" should plan on forking out at least $10 million. That's the number Sheen expects the bidding war to start at.

For some context... that number falls between the advances paid to the last two American presidents. George W. Bush sold rights to his "Decision Points" for a reported $7 million, while Bill Clinton's "My Life" earned a record-busting $15 million advance.

Naturally, the behind-the-scenes account of a network sitcom, penned by a frequently incoherent addict, should be right up there competition with the most recent leaders of the free world.
