Sheen: Gimme $3M, ‘take it or leave it’

Actor Charlie Sheen escalated his recent rants against his former “Two and a Half Men” employers, demanding a pay raise and threatening a lawsuit in two TV interviews that caused his spokesman to quit.

Actor Charlie Sheen escalated his recent rants against his former “Two and a Half Men” employers, demanding a pay raise and threatening a lawsuit in two TV interviews that caused his spokesman to quit.

Sheen — whose erratic behavior has put the future of his top-rated TV comedy in jeopardy — on Monday morning chat shows boasted about his partying lifestyle and said he was tired of pretending.

Sheen, the highest-paid actor on U.S. TV, launched several expletive-filled rants last week against the show’s creator, causing the show’s makers to cancel production of the series for the rest of the season.

Yesterday, Sheen told “Good Morning America” that he would defend himself through “violent hatred” aimed at him.

Speculation has been rife about the future of “Two and A Half Men” would continue next season, with ou without Sheen’s leading role as a womanizing bachelor — a part that seems to mimic the actor in real life.

He told NBC’s “Today” show yesterday that returning would require a pay rise, saying the $2 million per episode he makes now is too low. “I am a man of my word, so I will finish the TV show,” he said, “but at this point ... it’s 3 mil an episode. Take it or leave it.”
