Charlie Sheen threatens to quit Anger Management

Charlie Sheen has reportedly threatened to quit his show Anger Management.

The 47-year-old actor apparently told producers that he will depart from the sitcom if actress Selma Blair’s part isn’t terminated.

He believes she has secretly been complaining about his work ethic to bosses, according to TMZ.

As a result, Charlie told those working on the series that if the process of firing Selma did not begin on Tuesday, he would leave. Apparently he is upset with Selma’s comments because he is the star of the show and must memorise “40 pages of lines per episode compared to her two”.

Charlie allegedly has been patient with the producers about how soon they can cut the actress’ work.

However he was clear about wanting to see progress with a plan to push the 40-year-old out.

Sources told the website that Selma was not on set Monday but it is not known whether she was scheduled for filming that day.

That evening she posted a cryptic message on Twitter, seemingly referring to her career.

“Goodnight dear followers. Life is good,” she assured fans.

When asked about her potential axing from the show on Tuesday, Selma insisted she wasn’t aware of what was happening.

"I don't know anything," she told TMZ as she took a walk with her son Arthur.

According to the website, FX network executives are wrapped up in discussions about how to deal with Charlie’s request.

The thespian is said to have a chance of making between $75 and $200 million if he records 100 episodes. It is thought he has only finished around 50 instalments.

Charlie has reportedly asked Mila Kunis to join the series for at least 10 episodes for a rate of $1 million per show.

The star is dating Ashton Kutcher, who replaced Charlie on his former sitcom Two and a Half Men.

    If there's one car that's particularly sought-after among today's well-heeled car collectors, a Ferrari 250 would be it.
