A day after he was fired, Charlie Sheen’s Two and a Half Men costar Holland Taylor has issued a statement defending the actor (she has played his mother on the show since 2003).
"Charlie was cordial and polite with all of his cast mates and crew, sometimes even courtly — and always witty," she said Tuesday in an e-mail to The Associated Press (she is the first cast member connected to the show to speak out). "We watched movies at his house occasionally — warm evenings with interesting, spirited conversation. This is the guy I know. In this very sad and complicated time, I really have no comment beyond valuing my own history with Charlie, and my abiding affection for him."
In an 11-page letter, an attorney for Warner Bros. Television told the actor's lawyer Marty Singer
that Sheen’s employment has been terminated because “he has been engaged in dangerously self-destructive behavior and appears to be very ill
” and that that is the reason his employment has been terminated.
