Breaking News on the negotiations between Warner Bros. and Charlie Sheen.
TMZ has learned Charlie Sheen has agreed to a new deal with Warner Bros. to do 2 more years of “Two and a Half Men.”
The deal was made yesterday. One source connected with the negotiations told TMZ, “Charlie is very happy.”
As for how much Charlie got, TMZ first reported Charlie wanted around $2 million an episode. We’re told Warner Bros. initially offered substantially less than half that amount, but we’re told the company went up considerably.
