Charlie Sheen continues his humble pie tour praising his old show “Two and a Half Men,” calling his replacement Ashton Kutcher “teriffic” and even laughing at his character’s death and tacky funeral. What a guy!
Sheen really is trying hard to look like a magnanimous winner this time out, after bombing on his bombastic “Torpedo of Truth” tour.
Back then he lashed out at everyone from his ex-wife Denise Richards to “Two and a Half Men” co-creator Chuck Lorre.
But now… now, well, he’s a changed man.
“That’s got to be the highest attended funeral of all time,” Sheen said of the sit-com’s premiere to Access Hollywood.
Indeed, Charlie was full of praise even though Lorre was clearly grinding an ax by killing off his character in a subway accident and peppering his funeral with cheap shots.
To show he has no hard feelings, Sheen said he even hosted a viewing party for the premiere and tweeted about it afterward.
“Surrounded by friends and watching the premier of “Two and a Half Men,” he wrote almost suggesting he needed a support group to get through the first episode.
“Odd… But cool..! So far a lot of laughs!! Nice…” he wrote.
“It was a big night for everybody on Monday night — for ‘Two and a Half,’ for us, for me,” he said, referring to his Comedy Central roast, which was a scream.
“I think everybody won. I thought the show was really good. I thought [Ashton] was terrific.”
Sheen has been on his humble pie tour for the past month, likely after he figured out his winning, actually turned out to be losing.
He also appears to have made some real enemies in Hollywood. Lorre reportedly tried to have him booted from the Emmy Awards, where he appeared as a surprise presenter.
But Charlie was nothing but magnanimous in his Emmys speech.
During a stop on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Sheen said he “would have fired his ass,” from the show, too, for his behavior.
Despite all the upheaval, Charlie continues to work.
He will star in Roman Coppola’s “A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charlie Swan III,” about a wealthy professional who breaks up with his girlfriend and freaks way the hell out.
At least he won’t have to stretch for that role.
