Contrite Charlie Sheen extends an olive branch to Ashton Kutcher

A contrite Charlie Sheen continued his goodwill tour, meeting with his “Two and a Half Men” replacement, Ashton Kutcher, backstage after the Emmy Awards show on Sunday night.

Before a surprised audience at the Nokia Theatre, Sheen presented the Emmy for leading actor in a comedy series to Jim Parsons of “The Big Bang Theory,” offering to his former "Two and a Half Men" colleagues that, “From the bottom of my heart, I wish you nothing but the best for this upcoming season.” 

Later, Sheen tweeted a photo of himself with Kutcher, “giving the new guy a little advice.”  And later, he tweeted a note to Kutcher and his 4.8 million Twitter followers:

Seriously... @aplusk great talking to you! We'll all be watching! Make us proud!!

A gracious Kutcher, tweeted back:

@charliesheen good to meet you too. Wishing you the best on your new gig.

The embattled actor was fired from “Two and a Half Men” earlier this year in a highly publicized fight in which Sheen attacked the show’s creator Chuck Lorre, calling him a ‘sociopath,” and his costar Jon Cryer, calling him a “troll.” He then took to the Internet with his two girlfriends, whom he referred to as his “goddesses,” and extolled the virtues of “tiger blood,” while making the word “winning”  a top Twitter hashtag. Sheen took his Web antics on the road with his “My Violent Torpedo of Truth” tour, which was canceled before he hit the planned 20 cities.

But Sheen has since signed on for a new TV series called “Anger Management,” participated in a Comedy Central roast and has been making the talk-show rounds, extending the olive branch to his past foes.

True reality TV. What's next is anyone's guess.
