For a while it seemed as though he would not be throwing in any more negative comments on his former workplace, but it appears Charlie Sheen still has plenty more to say about Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre, calling his other creation The Big Bang Theory ‘stupid and lame’.
Sheen, still reeling at the incidents 2 years ago which got him fired from the CBS sitcom, noted that Big Bang Theory, a comedy focusing on the lives of a group of nerdy friends, was a format which does not work, and that he feels sympathy for its actors given the show and people they are forced to work with.
In an interview with The Guardian, Sheen mentioned shows that Two and a Half Men was ‘responsible’ for due to Lorre’s presence, noting: “You gotta think about the shows that my show launched. I should have added in a clause that said anything that uses me as a lead-in, cut me in. I’m sorry, but Big Bang Theory is a piece of s**t – it’s a stupid show and it’s just lame, about lame people. I like the kids in it, but that show without [Two and a Half Men] as a lead-in is… goodbye. And I’m rooting for those kids, because I know who they’re dealing with. The fact that they’re still sane is crazy. You know? He’s a bad man. And I’ve backed off from him for a while.”
Lorre’s credits aside from creating Two and a Half Men and The Big Bang Theory include serving as an executive producer on Melissa McCarthy-created CBS sitcom Mike & Molly, and creator of former shows Grace Under Fire, Cybill, and Dharma & Greg. Sheen said of his affect on the people working with him on such shows, though: “Look what happened to Angus, man. Look what happened to me, look what happened to Melanie Lynskey, who’s getting divorced. That show [Two and a Half Men] devoured like 12 marriages.”
Still seemingly unable to drop the subject whenever he gets the chance, perhaps having 90 more episodes of Anger Management to work through now will be a more theraputic experience for Charlie Sheen?
