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.

    Driving a $900,000 Porsche 918 Spyder to the future

    It’s more than just its inherent speed, or the whooshing noise that fills the cabin like a school choir jamming with James Hetfield. It’s what it represents in an industry full of skeptics. It’s a portal into the future – a time capsule left by some mad scientist born decades too soon. It’s something that shouldn’t exist. And yet it does.

    5 Unanswered Questions About Jesus

    As Christians worldwide gather for Easter to celebrate their belief in the death and rebirth of Jesus, researchers continue to delve into the mysteries that surround the man. The following are five questions about Jesus that, for now, at least, remain unanswered. In 2008, astronomer Dave Reneke argued that the Star of Bethlehem (a celestial event long associated with Jesus' birth) may have been Venus and Jupiter coming together to form a bright light in the sky. Other researchers have claimed that a similar conjunction between Saturn and Jupiter occurred in October of 7 B.C. Still others have claimed that Jesus was born in the spring, based on stories about shepherds watching over their flocks in fields on the night of Jesus' birth — something they would have done in the spring, not the winter.
