Charlie Sheen tells 'Good Morning America' he will show up for work despite suspension of 'Two and a Half Men'

Sheen Charlie Sheen says that he is 100% clean and plans to show up for work on the set of "Two and a Half Men," despite the fact that CBS suspended the show, the actor told "Good Morning America" on Friday through a series of text messages.

Sheen also said he's thinking about switching channels to HBO, where he plans to star in his own show called "Sheen's Corner." HBO says there’s no truth to Sheen’s claim.

The actor's text messages to "Good Morning America" arrived shortly after he addressed his suspension Thursday night in an open letter obtained by TMZ. The letter found him continuing his ongoing attacks on the show's executive producer Chuck Lorre, referred to by Sheen as "Haim Levine," in an apparent slur against Lorre, who was born Charles Michael Levine. 

"What does this say about Haim Levine after he tried to use his words to judge and attempt to degrade me," Sheen wrote. "I gracefully ignored this folly for 177 shows. I fire back once and this contaminated little maggot can't handle my power and can't handle the truth. I wish him nothing but pain in his silly travels especially if they wind up in my octagon. Clearly I have defeated this earthworm with my words -- imagine what I would have done with my fire breathing fists. I urge all my beautiful and loyal fans who embraced this show for almost a decade to walk with me side-by-side as we march up the steps of justice to right this unconscionable wrong."

Charlie Sheen is a joke.

And you thought Lindsay was out of control.

Sheen showing up to a production set that is halted is just an effort to get his $1.2M per episode

Charlie Sheen is the Man!!!

I wish some would "unconscionably wrong" me by giving me $1.2M per episode.

"Earth to Charlie, come in please - over."

Next thing we know is that Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan will be dating. Both careers are toast.

Mr. Sheen sounds like he could give that Libyan fellow a few pointers on how to conduct a successful PR campaign.

is charlie leaving the show or is he LEAVING LAS VEGAS. (a shrouded compliment to nicholas cage's great acting).

Get RID of him! Just another example of a spoiled actor that makes too much money.

I love Two and Half Men !!! I don't want the show to end. Replace Charlie Sheen and hire Ashton Kutcher. Ashton is well known in the show biz and will be a great replacement. He is funny and very talented actor. He will fill the part very well.

Charlie, Charlie, Charlie.....when will you ever learn?

Charlie who?



I think Charlies the Man and wish him the best. It's so funny but I support him. He's just like his show. Got to love him.

Dear CBS;Please don not cancell Two 1/2 Men. Just put :Charlie Sheen on Vacation!.Tell Chuck Lorre thank you for such good shows .Two 1/2 Men ,Big Bang Theory/etc.Nadine Ketchum

Sheen's celebrity arrogance has cost many their jobs and countless other WB workers their due compensation. Thanks for looking out for the small guy, Chuck!

EMILIO!!! It is time for BIG or younger BROTHER to make a big come back...Breakfast Club 2!

I any other industry, this immature, under educated, drug addled blivot would have been a dismal failure. So, by virtue of his familial connections, he gets a job as a court jester (...ahem...I mean "actor")....making millions of dollars a year, acting out as a drug addict, sex addict and all around smarmy low-brow from the wrong side of the tracks and then rips his benefactors a new one on the radio....grose...
He should be kissing the ground that he actually has been given a "Job" that he can do....pretending to be someone else....now that's where this all should make sense. Anyone who gets their jollys from pretending to be someone else all day....well....

I love the show to but Ashton is to young for the part. I also think Chuck Lorre is wrong. Putting 200 people out of work because of an immature narcissistic actor. I'm sure there are plenty of actors that could take over.

Dear Charlie - Please from us who adore your work, get serious help by seriously accepting that you are powerless over alcohol and drugs, or your already sad story will end in tragedy of death or insanity, and that is certain. Berating the exec. producer of the show with insulting words or veiled threats involving your fists of fire are not indicative of a healthy mind at work. Further, hundreds of others depend upon you for work on the production, millions of dollars are at stake, and you seem oblivious to all that.
