Charlie Sheen Says Behavior Last Year Was a 'Little Cringeable'

Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) -- Charlie Sheen isn't proud of his behavior leading up to his firing from Two and a Half Men last year.

In an appearance on NBC's Today show on Thursday, Sheen said his actions, which included repeated rants against Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre, were "a little cringeable because I didn't recognize parts of who that guy was."

Sheen is now the star of the FX comedy Anger Management, premiering on June 28.  He told Today anchor Matt Lauer he discussed his recent past with the cast and crew on their first day on the set, and they had a good laugh about it.

Sheen added, "I couldn't have the Two and a Half thing be my television legacy.  I couldn't have it end on that note.  So if this is going to be the swan song, then it's got to be a beautiful experience.  And so far, eight days [on Anger Management] was more fun than eight years [at Two and a Half Men.]

Sheen, whose past recreational drug use is well-documented, says he's not required to take drug tests as part of his gig with Anger Management.

He said, "There's no testing unless something obvious happens -- I show up covered in blood, somebody else's."

Lauer asked Sheen about recent TMZ.com footage of the actor appearing drunk after a Guns N' Roses concert. 

After Lauer said he doesn't know one addiction specialist who would allow someone like Sheen to drink alcohol, Sheen replied, "Well if you do I should probably go to that guy....I have different theories about the whole thing.  One of them is park near the VIP exit."

Charlie Sheen Thinks 'Two and a Half Men' Should End This Year

ABC/RICHARD CARTWRIGHT(MIAMI) -- Charlie Sheen believes his old sitcom, Two and a Half Men, has run its course.

Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter and other media outlets at the National Association of Television Program Executives in Miami this week, he said, "I don’t think [Two and a Half Men] should go on past this year.  I just think that people are there because there’s nowhere else to go."

Sheen said his replacement, Ashton Kutcher, is, "doing the best job that he can," but he doesn't think Kutcher, "is working with the best writing because [series creator Chuck Lorre is] doing too many shows.  He and [co-stars] Jon [Cryer] and Angus [T. Jones] deserve better material."

Sheen, who was fired from Two and a Half Men last year after a series of public rants against Lorre, is more confident in his new FX adaptation of the Adam Sandler film Anger Management.  He called it "an absolute f***in' rocket ship to the moon." It premieres this summer.

Charlie Sheen, Ashton Kutcher Bond Backstage at the Emmys

Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- Continuing what could only be described as an apology tour that saw him issue mea culpas on The Tonight Show and Today, Charlie Sheen used some podium time as an Emmy presenter Sunday night to cheer on his former Two and a Half Men co-stars.

The less war-like warlock even tweeted some backstage pictures at the event of him bonding with his sitcom replacement Ashton Kutcher.

One pic is the pair posing for a shot, smiling -- to which Sheen tweeted to Kutcher, "@aplusk great talking to you! We'll all be watching! Make us proud!!"  Another shot shows an animated Sheen talking with Kutcher: "Giving the new kid a little advice..!" Sheen posted.

Kutcher's debut on Two and a Half Men is Monday at 9 p.m. ET.  The Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen airs an hour later.

Ashton Kutcher Livin' Large on 'Two and a Half Men' Set

Charles Eshelman/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- Now that he's the highest-paid sitcom actor, Ashton Kutcher can afford to splurge on a luxurious trailer.

According to Britain's Daily Mail, Kutcher keeps a 53-foot-long trailer on the Two and a Half Men set.  It contains two bathrooms, a kitchen, seven 3D plasma screens, and a whole lot more.

TVGuide.com recently reported that Kutcher will make $700,000 per episode as Charlie Sheen's replacement on Two and a Half Men -- a princely sum, but a relative bargain for CBS compared to Sheen's $1.2 million paycheck.

Charlie Sheen Says Kutcher Will 'Kill It' on 'Two and a Half Men'

ABC/RICHARD CARTWRIGHT(LOS ANGELES) -- Charlie Sheen is still cheering on Ashton Kutcher, his replacement on Two and a Half Men.

Caught on camera by TMZ.com in Los Angeles on Monday, Sheen said he's "rooting hard" for the actor, and that he plans to be "front and center" to watch the episode in which his character Charlie Harper is memorialized.

"Who's not gonna watch?" Sheen laughed.  "I'm just as curious as everybody else."

Tweaking show co-creator Chuck Lorre's operation somewhat, Sheen tossed in, "It'll be nice to know that they get some carry-over ratings from people being sort of curious about what happened to their guy," meaning Harper, who's rumored to be killed by a train in Paris.

Sheen says he has no doubts that Kutcher will be good for the show.

"I think Ashton's gonna kill it," Sheen said, and then reminded viewers that on Sept. 19 -- the same night as the Two and a Half Men premiere -- Comedy Central will air its roast of Sheen, which will be shot on Sept. 8.  "It's gonna be a big night for everyone," the warlock insists.

The season premiere of Two and a Half Men airs 9 p.m. ET on CBS, while the Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen begins at 10 p.m. ET.

Charlie Sheen's Exit from 'Two and a Half' Men Revealed

Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- If TMZ is to believed, the gossip site has some major spoilers regarding the swan song of Charlie Harper, Charlie Sheen's Two and a Half Men character.

A source who attended last Friday's taping of the show's season premiere told the site Charlie Harper dies in a suspicious train mishap in Paris, in an accident his stalker-turned wife Rose describes as "a meat explosion."  The show apparently leads audiences to believe Rose, played by actress Melanie Lynskey, may have given Charlie Harper a push onto subway tracks and into the great beyond.

Perhaps the grisly demise was show co-creator and frequent Sheen target Chuck Lorre's comeuppance for the warlock, who called Lorre a "troll" -- and worse -- during rants that eventually got Sheen fired and replaced by Ashton Kutcher.

On that note, Sheen says he couldn't be happier with how his character is being offed, telling TMZ he's even planning to have a viewing party of the episode.

"I have always been told that I have nine lives," the actor explains, "so it is going to be amazing to witness my own funeral, which is clearly a win/win situation because Ashton has just given me a 10th."

CBS President 'Concerned' for Charlie Sheen

Photo Courtesy - Jeff Vespa/WireImage/Getty Images(FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.) -- Charlie Sheen's personal problems are no laughing matter.  That's what CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler says.  Speaking to reporters Friday at the TV Critics Association press tour in Pasadena, Calif., Tassler said, "We have a high level of concern.  How could we not?  The man is a father; he has a family."

Tassler says she can't just wave her hands and magically make the Two and a Half Men star get his life in order. 

"You can't look at it simplistically," Tassler said.  "Charlie is a professional.  He comes to work.  He does his job very well...On a personal level, I'm very concerned.  On a professional level...the show's a hit."
