In what can only be described as an erratic interview, a raspy-voiced Charlie Sheen phoned The Dan Patrick Show Monday morning and blasted his bosses at CBS and Warner Bros. for preventing him from returning to work.
“I went back to work and I was banging on the stage door, [saying], ‘Hello, where is everybody?’ he recounted. “I don’t know what happened. I guess they’re closed… I just figured I’m supposed to go back to work because I’m ready.”
Calling his time away from Men a “forced hiatus,” Sheen complained about both CBS and Warner Bros., venting, “They said, ‘You get ready, we’ll get ready,” and I got ready, went back and nobody’s there. I don’t know what to tell you, Dan. Nobody’s there. I’m ready, they’re not — bring it, you know?”
Sheen joked that production on his CBS hit is now scheduled to resume in “August of 2014, at this pace. No, it’s supposed to be the 28th or the 29th — that’s what it is, it’s the 29th in a non-Leap Year.
“I’m a man of my word,” he declared when asked about ultimately returning to work. “I have a contract. They said get your act together and I did. I think just maybe it was a timing thing.. I didn’t think [my treatment] was going to happen this fast… I heal really quickly. But I unravel pretty quickly. So get me right now, guys.”
