Fellow TV actor Alec Baldwin is speaking out about Charlie Sheen in a Huffington Post editorial and, as Baldwin is no stranger to controversy himself, the 30 Rock star has some words of advice for Sheen.
Here's a few snippets from the editorial:
- You can't win. Really. You can't. When executives at studios and networks move up to the highest ranks, they are given a book. The book is called How to Handle Actors. And one principle held dear in that book is that no actor is greater than the show itself when the show is a hit. And, in that regard, they are often right. Add to that the fact that the actor who is torturing their diseased egos is a drug-addled, porn star-squiring, near-Joycean Internet ranter, and they really want you to go.
Granted, it didn't get real until you insulted them. And your suit may have real grounds.
But you know what you should do? Take a nap. Get a shower. Call Chuck. Go on Letterman and make an apology. Write a huge check to the B'Nai Brith. And then beg for your job back. Your fans demand it. You will never win because when you are as big a douchebag as some of these guys are, they have no choice but to snuff you. (Do you secretly want to get snuffed? So you can go back and make movies?)
Sober up, Charlie. And get back on TV, if it's not too late. This is America. You want to really piss off Chuck and Warner Brothers and CBS? Beg for America's forgiveness. They will give it to you. And then go back. You are a great television star. And you've got the gig. As I learned from closely observing Tony Bennett so I could impersonate him on SNL, this is supposed to be fun.
In response to getting fired from Two and a Half Men, Sheen is suing Warner Bros. and Chuck Lorre for $100 million.
And in other Sheen news, the troubled actor is taking his act on the road in a show entitled, Charlie Sheen LIVE: My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not an Option, and it kicks off on April 2nd in Detroit!
Sheen also had a meeting this week with Morgan Creek VP David Robinson to discuss making Major League 3.
What advice did Baldwin give Sheen about his Two and a Half Men co-star Jon Cryer? See below the jump!
Baldwin added, "Buy Cryer a really nice car."
Meanwhile, Sheen's live tour sold out in just 18 minutes! A record for Ticketmaster. Congrats?
