Charlie Sheen was one of the original “men” in Two and a Half Men, playing Charlie Harper in the first eight seasons of the CBS sitcom opposite Jon Cryer as his on-screen brother. Sheen entered drug treatment and the eighth season was cut short, and he famously clashed with executive producer Chuck Lorre in the press and social media, resulting in his dismissal from the series (and the coinage of the phrases “winning” and “tiger’s blood”). His character was killed off and later played as a ghost by Kathy Bates.
After exiting Two and a Half Men, Sheen booked the TV version of Anger Management, which aired from 2012-2014 and produced 100 episodes over two seasons. Since, Sheen popped up on The Goldbergs and on the big screen was in Scary Movie 5, Machete Kills and 9/11. He came out as HIV positive in 2015.
