That wasn't a winning move.

Charlie Sheen was apparently trying to send Justin Bieber a direct message with his phone number over Twitter, but accidentally sent the message -- "310-954-7277 Call me bro. C" -- to more than 5.5 million followers.

The actor's phone reportedly began ringing off the hook while he was at dinner in Las Vegas, and he humored some callers by answering with "Ray's Pizza" and "Winning!" according to the New York Post

By Monday afternoon, callers hoping to reach Sheen received an automated message: "The number you dialed is not a working number. Please check the number and dial again."

Still no word on why the former "Two and a Half Men" star wanted to get in touch with Bieber.
