Charlie Sheen is apparently using the irresistible siren song of a People’s Choice Award to mend his rift with “Two and a Half Men” Executive Producer Chuck Lorre. Also, he’s got a great idea that Lorre needs to hear.

On Sunday, the former “Two and a Half Men” star tweeted a photo of the People’s Choice Award “Two and a Half Men” won for favorite TV comedy. Along with the photo, Sheen wrote: “hey Chuck. I have an idea that u need to hear after I make amends to you and yours. which I will do in person. xox c.”

Sheen currently stars on the FX comedy “Anger Management,” but it was Lorre’s CBS sitcom that made Sheen one of the highest-paid people on TV. However, that went south in 2011, when Sheen sparked a feud with Lorre and Warner Bros. Television, demanding a 50% pay raise, despite forcing the show to shut down production while he dealt with substance abuse issues.

After publicly bad-mouthing Lorre and Warner Bros., the studio fired Sheen, a move that prompted Sheen to conduct a series of bizarre TV interviews, giving us as a nation the catch-phrase “Winning!”, among others.


Sheen also sued Lorre and Warner Bros. for wrongful termination, a suit that was eventually settled.

After Sheen was dismissed from the series, he was replaced by Ashton Kutcher.

So what is Sheen’s big idea? And will Lorre really take a meeting with the man who once described him as a “clown” and a “little maggot”? It’s Hollywood and stranger things have happened.
