At this stage of the game, there’s plenty that could be said about the concept of Charlie Sheen appearing in a video for Funny or Die. But in contrast to his unsettling TV and web appearances of the last few weeks, this version of Charlie Sheen is funny — in a Chuck Norris-is-awesome kinda way — and the best evidence yet that he’s simply playing with our heads. In the video, Sheen dons what appears to be a Cincinnati Bengals chef’s hat (Tiger blood, duh!) and shares his Winning Recipes: “I don’t cook food. I will it.” READ FULL STORY

In entirely expected news, Charlie Sheen now boasts his own autotuned YouTube hit, “Winning — a Song by Charlie Sheen.” The song, which has attracted over one million poor eyes and ears, combines some of the former Two and a Half Men actor’s best lines with a good beat — which made me realize something: With all his talk of Vatican assassins, warlocks, rock stars from mars, and seven-gram rocks, Charlie Sheen’s mind is officially Saturday Night Live‘s Stefon’s next hottest club. It. Has. Everything. Listen to “Winning — a Song by Charlie Sheen,” brought to you by the same folks who made the “Bed Intruder” and “Double Rainbow” autotuned songs, below: READ FULL STORY
a PopWatch poll earlier this week, 46 percent of readers though Two and a Half Men should continue with a replacement for Charlie Sheen. (Eighteen percent thought CBS should continue producing new episodes of TV’s top comedy without replacing him, and 36 percent thought the show was kaput without him.) As EW’s Lynette Rice points out, Spin City and Cheers did it. Even though Chuck Lorre created the show with Sheen in mind, who’s to say he couldn’t get inspired by another actor (or actress, as EW’s Jennifer Armstrong has suggested)? Let’s take it to a vote with the 10 suggestions below culled from reader picks and my brain. (I’m leaving in Rob Lowe and John Stamos even though those actual rumors have been shot down, because, well, things could always change.) READ FULL STORYIn
I am senselessly fascinated by Charlie Sheen’s Twitter account. I know it’s bad — bad for me, bad for society, bad for the human race. And I pride myself on having somewhat good taste. In my spare time, I enjoy reading the first 100 pages of presidential biographies, and listening to classical music while falling asleep, and adding foreign films to my Netflix queue with every intention to watch them eventually. Also, not to make any moral judgements, but Sheen himself seems like a magnificent douche rocket. And yet I cannot turn away. I’m not the only one: On the heels of Sheen’s mega-rated 20/20 interview, the actor has already accumulated just over 1,001,000 followers as of the writing of this sentence. What are we reading, exactly, my brothers and sisters in the Sheen Twitter cult? READ FULL STORY
and many mentioning John Stamos (though sources say no such thing is imminent) — just for kicks, I’d like to throw out a different idea: How about we make it 1.5 men plus a lady? I won’t insist on the awkward title change — the thing’s a huge hit, let’s keep the name recognition! — but putting a woman in top billing on TV’s No. 1 comedy would provide at least the tiniest bit of karmic payback for Sheen and his alleged bad behavior. As The New York Times‘ David Carr pointed out, until this week, “the business interests — hundreds of millions in broadcast and syndication revenue will be lost if the show is gone for good — continued to prevail even as he terrorized the women in his life,” and he only got himself fired now by insulting his (male) boss.
