Sheen Calls Out CBS, Warner Bros., Chuck Lorre in Latest Webcast

Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) -- Charlie Sheen declared war on CBS and Warner Bros. during a new edition of his webcast, Sheen's Korner, on Tuesday night.

Sheen emphasized that point by opening his webcast with a shot of the famed book The Art of War by Sun Tzu.  The shot transitioned into a montage of clips from films such as Young Frankenstein, Apocalypse Now, and A Few Good Men, with snippets of Sheen audio -- including him using his catchphrase "winning" -- dubbed over the video.  The montage was set to The Doors' song "The End" -- which famously opened Apocalypse Now.

Wearing glasses and a Cincinnati Reds shirt, Sheen next appeared on-camera delivering a monologue that sounded scripted.  Calling himself the "Malibu messiah," he proceeded to dismiss CBS president Les Moonves as "Less Than Moonves," telling him, "You gave me your word so in turn you gave me nothing."

He then gave a pass to Warner Bros. Television president Peter Roth and slammed Warner Bros. exec. Bruce Rosenblum before moving on to Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre, whom he described as a "little worm" and "Chuck E. Cheeseball."

Sheen told viewers he would extract his "tiger blood" for them to use -- a possible reference to a bottle of fruit juice labeled "Tiger Blood"  that was seen on his desk before the webcast officially began.  Sheen declared that "high treason has occurred," and said, "We must right this infantile wrong."  He signed off by saying, "Stay tuned good soldiers, I'll see you very soon, on the battlefield."

This was Sheen's fourth webcast in four days.  It ran about 10 minutes.

Charlie Sheen to Respond to Firing; Who Will Replace Him?

Jeff Vespa/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- If you haven't had your fill of Charlie Sheen's rantings yet, the actor will appear on Ustream Tuesday night at 10 p.m. ET to give what's described as his "first on-camera public response to being terminated from Two and a Half Men.  During the show, at Ustream.tv/charliesheen, fans will be able to ask Charlie questions as well as listen to him ramble.

A statement announcing the online chat said, "Charlie 'The Warlock' Sheen will build this mass destruction, live right before your very eyes. Get a first hand look into his Tiger bloodstream, unlock his Adonis DNA, fear his warlock fangs, as he makes history as well as a ton of corporate enemies...the die has been cast. The gloves are off. The hatred pure and focused. Hear it live first hand unedited."

Meanwhile, TMZ is reporting that Two and a Half Men producer Chuck Lorre -- or at least his people -- has been in touch with Rob Lowe's agent about him possibly replacing Sheen. TMZ says one stumbling block to this idea is that Lowe, currently appearing in NBC's Parks and Recreation, is close with the Sheen family.

Charlie Sheen Live! Thousands Tune In to Watch Sheen on UStream

Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- As if going before every TV camera that would have him and becoming an overnight Twitter star weren’t enough, actor Charlie Sheen took his "winning" message to a live web audience Saturday night.

Dressed in a T-shirt emblazoned with a giant green dollar sign and a black fedora, the actor addressed his fans in a Ustream show called "Sheen's Korner." At its peak, the show attracted about 150,000 viewers, but the viewer count appeared to fall as the show continued.

The program -- promoted with the tagline "You're either in Sheen's corner or with the trolls" -- featured Sheen, as well as his "sidekick" Rick Calamaro, "goddess" girlfriend Natalie Kenly, a dedicated sound engineer and a handful of other pals.

Since his very public feud with CBS began and the network canceled the rest of the season of his hit sitcom, Two and a Half Men, Sheen has seemingly been everywhere, including an extensive interview he gave ABC's Andrea Canning.

After thanking his "sponsors," Sheen pulled a bandage off his wrist to reveal that he had tattooed himself with his favorite phrase, "winning." He said "Sheen's Korner" would be "an experiment of sorts," airing on Ustream daily, weekly or with whatever frequency his fans indicated they desired.

Sheen and his friends also introduced a series of so-called "segments," including "Winning News," "Gnarls Gnarlingest," "Wish They Were Me Forever" and "Kinda wish I were them for 10 minutes." He also gave viewers an opportunity to write in and request, via Twitter, some of their favorite Sheen quotes.

"There's been a lot of wordsmithing that has fallen gracefully from this beautiful hole," he said. "It has caught on like an absolute global wildfire."

The online show lasted for nearly an hour and, at the end, Sheen thanked his viewers for tuning in to his "maiden madcap experiment."
