Charlie Sheen Reportedly Wants $1.5 Million Per Episode

Is $1 Million per episode enough for a sitcom star? Apparently not for Charlie Sheen, if the latest news is to be believed. After seven years on the hit show Two and a Half Men, the star Charlie Sheen is giving indication he will soon be leaving, even after reportedly being offered a million dollars for each show!

Sheen is reportedly jockeying for an even more astronomical fee of $1.5 Million Per Episode.

According to People magazine, he even just turned down an offer for an eighth season. "He wants to move on," said one source reportedly a friend of Sheen. "Leaving is 100 percent his idea."

Some are saying that this talk of quitting the show is just a ploy to have leverage as he negotiates for even more money, but time will tell. Charlie Sheen has been in the news a lot recently, and not for good reasons, as he had an allegedly violent confrontation with his wife, and wound up spending some time in rehab afterwards for undisclosed issues.

Sheen continues going to rehab every night after work. It might be a better idea for him to stay gainfully employed, idle hands are the devil's workshop. but somehow I doubt he will turn this amount of money down in the long run.

The star's current salary is a reported $825,000 per half-hour episode, with TMZ reporting that Warner Bros has offered $1 million per episode for Sheen to renew his contract, which ends after he tapes the 22nd episode of this season on April 9. Walking away from the hit CBS sitcom would mean Sheen gives up nearly $25 million a season, if TMZ's report is correct. The actor is reportedly asking for $1.5 million to $2 million per episode.
