"Clearly my efforts are paying off," he says, following the Warner Bros. move to compensate workers following the show's cancellation.

Warner Bros. might have made the move to pay the crew of Two and a Half Men following the cancellation of the program for the season.

But Men star Charlie Sheen is taking the credit.

"Clearly my efforts are paying off," Sheen told the AP, following the news that the crew would receive payment for four of the canceled episodes.

Sheen said he was going to lobby to make sure that the crew would be paid for all eight canceled episodes.

"I won't sleep until I get all eight," he said.

When he was asked about reimbursements for fellow Men actors Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones -- also affected by the work stoppage -- Sheen replied, "They're next."

Warner Bros and CBS have canceled the remaining episodes of the season following Sheen's erratic behavior which was capped off with bizarre rants on a radio program last week.

Warner Bros. spokesman Paul McGuire confirmed to the AP crew the payments but denied any lobbying from Sheen had anything to do with it.
