That's what I was thinking. And Jon Cryer's won an Emmy for Two And A Half Men and been nominated four other times in eight years on the show.

Also, I'm surprised Martin Sheen hasn't spoken out about his son, either supporting him or urging him to get help. Maybe he's just not being public about it.

Either his family is just doing a very good job staying out of the media with whatever they're doing, or they've given up on trying to help him and are going the tough love route.

Either way, I feel for them.

He did an interview last week, actually. He said he thinks addiction is like cancer and that Charlie needs to treat it as intensely as people treat cancer.

The fact that this interview was either largely ignored or quickly forgotten is sad.

I'm just going to put this out there because something about all this doesn't feel right. I'm a cynic. And as a cynic, I have this suspicion that Sheen knows exactly what he's doing. He's completely lucid and is just trying to get all the attention he can get. Does he have a drug problem? Perhaps. Does he have some sort of narcissistic personality disorder? Seems that way. Is he melting down right in front of our very eyes? I have my doubts, and all of this, including the Twitter account and subsequent tweets, is his way of garnering attention and tapping into our celebrity-obsessed culture. Or it's something else I haven't figured out yet.

i agree with this....one hell of a publicity stunt and in the end he gets more attention and probably more money. It works because if his show does come back on tv everyone will want to watch out of random curiousity.

I'd be surprised if he didn't get a cameo in the Hangover sequel.

He doesn't look insane when he's saying these things. He looks totally self-aware.

He does look like shit though. I just take him at face value: He has fully embraced his rock star life style and is making the most of it, but he knows what he's doing

I'm getting the creeping suspicion that this was the plan all along.

I dunno. If Galafanakis nixed Mel Gibson due to his issues, he would hopefully also nix Sheen due to his history of violence against women.
