Charlie Sheen's little stint in rehab is going to cost him big time. Charlie's currently one of the highest paid actors on TV so when production on 'Two and a Half Men' was cut by two episodes; it cost him over $1.5 million dollars!
The show's executive producer, Chuck Lorre, said: "Instead of doing 24 shows this year, we'll be doing 22. But 22 is a full order. They had asked us to produce two additional episodes, which we normally do. But we won't do it this year."
Charlie gets about $825K per episode, so when he misses an episode, it's a pretty big deal! And we're sure the 17 million people who tune in would notice if he was missing.
Meanwhile Charlie has pleaded not guilty to felony menacing, misdemeanor third degree assault and misdemeanor criminal mischief after he allegedly assaulted his wife Brooke Mueller over the holidays.
A new trial date has been set for July 21 and Charlie's next hearing date is April 19. Talk about two and a half messes!
