Alec Baldwin advises Sheen: ‘You can’t win’
You didn’t think that you could get away with a Charlie Sheen free day did you? Someone who’s not been without controversy himself, actor Alec Baldwin (Remember the recordings of phone calls to his daughter?), tells Charlie Sheen to apologize and get back to work.
One week after Charlie Sheen was fired from “Two and a Half Men,” “30 Rock’s” Alec Baldwin has a few words of advice for the unemployed actor.
“Take a nap. Get a shower. Call Chuck [Lorre]. Go on Letterman and make an apology. Write a huge check to the B’Nai Brith. And then beg for your job back. Your fans demand it,” Baldwin, 52, wrote in a Huffington Post editorial published Friday.
“You can’t win. Really. You can’t,” argues Baldwin, who says that network executives subscribe to the notion that “no actor is greater than the show itself when the show is a hit.” Fired from the series March 7, Sheen announced plans for a $100 million lawsuit against Warner Bros. Televison and “Two and a Half Men” creator Lorre, demanding to be compensated for the eight cancelled episodes from the current season.
