Charlie Sheen seeks $100 mn for TV sacking

Charlie Sheen filed a lawsuit Thursday seeking more than $100 million from Warner Brothers and the producers of "Two and a Half Men" for sacking him from the hit TV show, AFP reports.

Lawyers for the troubled star claim Sheen's contract was breached by his dismissal this week in the wake of a string of media outbursts by the actor attacking the show's producer Chuck Lorre.

Sheen is also seeking compensation for the rest of the cast and crew of the top-rating TV series, the future of which is in doubt after the sacking of its main star.

"By this complaint, Charlie Sheen is not only seeking payment of his own compensation for the series," said the lawsuit, a copy of which was published by the TMZ celebrity news website.

"He is also pursuing claims for the benefit of the entire cast and crew to get paid for the balance of the season's 24 episodes," added the document, filed in the Los Angeles Superior Court and dated Thursday.

The legal action came two days after Warner Brothers sacked Sheen on Monday, citing the 45-year-old's "dangerously self-destructive conduct."

"Two and a Half Men" -- in which Sheen plays a hedonistic bachelor -- had already been canceled for the rest of the season following Sheen's repeated verbal attacks on Lorre two weeks ago.

Sheen drew accusations of anti-Semitism after referring to Lorre by the Hebrew translation of his name, but persisted with a series of rambling TV interviews last week, prompting his spokesman to quit.

The star also started his own Twitter feed which has become an Internet sensation, and launched an online show, dubbed "Sheen's Korner," which has also drawn huge numbers of followers.
