Talk about an exit. The Harper family and many of the ladies from Charlie's life pay their respects in the only way they can in the Season 9 premiere of Two and a Half Men
Red carpet and show pictures from the Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen featuring the warlock himself, Seth MacFarlane, Steve-O, Mike Tyson and even ex-wife Brooke Mueller.
We’re big fans of the unique Charlie Sheen here at Comedy Central, that’s no secret. The Two and a Half Men star (or TMZ’s new best friend as he’s now known) has had quite a life so far.
Born in 1965, Carlos Irwin Estévez, Charlie is the youngest of Martin Sheen’s four offspring and went to school with the likes of Rob Lowe and Sean Penn playing baseball and making Super-8 films in his spare time. Not much of a hot shot on the academic side, Charlie turned his hand to acting.
He began his film career in the mid-80s appearing in films like Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Platoon, Wall Street, Young Guns and Major League.
The nineties saw Charlie embrace spoof films (and some other questionable roles), most notably Hot Shots! and Hot Shots! Part Deux and then again in the noughties for Scary Movie 3 and 4.
On the box, he guested in Friends playing Phoebe’s Naval bit-on-the-side (the one where they get the chicken pox) and then landed his Golden Globe winning part as Charlie Crawford in Spin City.
…and then along came Two and a Half Men.

The lines blur between Charlie Sheen and his Two and a Half Men character Charlie Harper as he plays the womanising, booze-loving, jingle writer who takes in his divorcee brother Alan and nephew Jake.
But it’s Charlie’s personal life that grabs the headlines and that’s a whole ‘nutha ball game. Where to begin?
Here’s some notable moments from the last 20 years:
- In 1990 Charlie accidently shot his then fiancée Kelly Preston. They did not get married. That year his dad Martin staged an intervention to get Charlie to deal with his drug and alcohol dependence.
- In 1995 Charlie is unearthed as one of Hollywood Madam Heidi Fleiss’ biggest clients when her little black book of secrets came under scrutiny. What did he have to say for himself? ‘I love sex and I can afford it.’
- In 1998 he was hospitalised after overdosing on cocaine. It turned out he'd been injecting it...
- In 2002 he married Denise Richards who dropped two sprogs for him. However they split up two-and-a-bit years later in a very ugly and public divorce with Denise accusing Charlie of alcohol and drug abuse and threats of violence against her.
- Christmas 2009 – Charlie is arrested and then charged with felony menacing as well as third-degree assault and criminal mischief after a fight with his new wife Brooke Mueller. Two and a Half Men is put on hiatus while Charlie checks into rehab.
- In 2010 Charlie is placed under ‘psychiatric evaluation’ in New York after going ape-sh*t in a hotel room with reports of a porn star locked in the bathroom.
But it was in March 2011 when his extra-curricular activities (mainly drug-fuelled nights with porn stars) reached epic proportions and he got himself fired from Two and a Half Men…and that’s when things really got interesting.
Shouting from a rooftop, swinging a machete and sipping a drink labelled ‘Tiger Blood’ Charlie declared ‘I’m free!’
He joined Twitter (breaking a record in the process, gaining a million followers in just over one day) and then filmed a bunch of ranting monologues online calling fellow co-stars trolls, declaring himself a warlock and having less than gentile things to say about Chuck Lorre and certain studio execs. Oh and he’s suing them for $100m…
Now he’s taken to the road with a live tour (he’s got to earn his keep somehow) dubbed ‘My Violent Torpedo Of Truth/Defeat Is Not An Option’ where paying fans will get the chance to hear the ‘real story’.
One thing we do know, this winning warlock hasn’t finished with the world just yet…
