Here We Go Again: 'Two and a Half Men' Creator Back to Dissing Sheen in End Credits?

Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- Charlie Sheen, whose Two and a Half Men character was killed off in last week's season premiere, had a small presence on Monday's episode of the CBS sitcom, albeit in an indirect way.

Series co-creator Chuck Lorre once again referred to Sheen in one of the blink-and-you'll-miss-them "vanity cards" that pop up just after the end credits of many TV shows. Again, Lorre made not-so-veiled references to his feud with Sheen, and also seems to mention their just-announced settlement, and a possible tell-all book:

The message read:

“Sometime last year I realized I had become the unwilling contestant in a reality show. I didn’t understand the rules, wasn’t sure if there even were any, and pretty much hated every second of it. For many months I kept hoping and praying that it would end. But it did not. Somewhere along the way, something inside me died. Anyway, now, suddenly, I’m being told that the reality show’s been cancelled. Apparently, it was just one of those things that somehow got out of control. Sorry. Whoops. Live and learn. Moving on. Game over. And that’s fine. I am so good with that. Yes, please, let’s all move on. There’s just one problem. That thing inside me that died? It walks at night. It’s angry. It’s hungry. And worst of all...it’s writing a tell-all book.”

Series producer Warner Bros. announced Monday that the studio and Lorre have reached a settlement with Sheen that will reportedly pay him about $25 million.

Sheen is reportedly bound by the details of the settlement not to flame his former boss any more, but in the past the actor claimed that shots taken at him by Lorre in the vanity cards helped touch off the powderkeg of Sheen's famous flameout.
