Charlie Sheen & Mark Cuban: Together At Last? Print E-mail
by Mike Fisher    Sun, Mar 6, 2011, 10:48 AM
Charlie Sheen and Mark Cuban. Lightning rods for controversy in their respective fields … and business partners in a new TV show?
 


 

Sheen, the star of the unplugged hit “Two And a Half Men,’’ has spent the last two weeks seemingly unplugged himself, his loony media rants creating a new form of infamy for the celebrity. Cuban, the Dallas Mavericks owner, has reportedly engaged in discussions with Sheen about a new show that could appear on Cuban’s TV network, HDNet.

“It would be a great show. Can’t really say anything beyond that at this point," Cuban allegedly told RadarOnline in an email.

Sheen himself has said that he’s had talks with HBO about a show that would pay him $5 million per episode. Reports have HBO denying any involvement in such talks.

"There are a couple of companies who want it badly, it's in a bidding war and of course they (HBO) don't want to do anything that's going to undercut their power," Sheen said.

Sheen was making a record $1.2 million per episode for “Two and a Half Men’’ before CBS ceased production of the show, citing Sheen’s addiction problems and behavior. All that coincided with Sheen’s rants, which alternated between racist, hedonistic and zany as he made declarations about having “tiger blood’’ and riding a “mercury surfboard’’ and calling Alcoholics Anonymous a “cult.’’

It’s impossible to separate the publicity-stunt aspects of Sheen’s two-week-long behavior from real concerns about his mental health.

But certainly, he wants the attention. Either in the form of a return to “Two and a Half Men’’ (“Absolutely the gig's coming back, I have absolute faith in that," he said) or in the form of a deal with someone like Cuban,

Mark Cuban made his money in one of the old-fashioned ways; he got incredibly lucky.

Charlie Sheen is losing his money in another old-fashioned way; sex, drugs, alcohol, and women.

Is Mark Cuban just determined to destroy what remains of his reputation by being in business with the likes of Charlie Sheen?

Don't watch the Mavericks! To give any creditibility to these two "nuts" is insanity!
