'Two and a Half Men' creator Chuck Lorre jabs at Charlie Sheen with vanity card
"Men" creator Chuck Lorre has used the vanity cards at the end of the show to comment on Sheen's off-camera activities before, but the one that aired after Monday's (Feb. 14) episode (which, by the way, was the last one filmed before Sheen entered rehab) might not exactly be good for the relationship.
It is, however, pretty amusing. It reads:
I exercise regularly. I eat moderate amounts of healthy food. I make sure to get plenty of rest. I see my doctor once a year and my dentist twice a year. I floss every night. I've had chest x-rays, cardio stress tests, EKG's and colonoscopies. I see a psychologist and have a variety of hobbies to reduce stress. I don't drink. I don't smoke. I don't do drugs. I don't have crazy, reckless sex with strangers.
If Charlie Sheen outlives me, I'm gonna be really pissed.
Monday's title card follows one that aired in January in which Lorre warned "Men" viewers not to attempt anything they'd just seen on screen: "We employ a highly-paid Hollywood professional who has years of experience with putting his life at risk. And sadly no, I'm not talking about our stunt man."
As for the fate of the show itself, it's scheduled to resume shooting on Feb. 28 -- despite Sheen's assertion that he's ready to go back to work now. TMZ reports that Warner Bros. TV has cut four episodes off this season's order, reducing it from 24 to 20. Reruns are scheduled to air for the next few weeks.
