Lindsay Lohan wants to star in her own comedy series. The 26-year-old actress is reportedly hoping to get her career back on track by proving her talent on her own sitcom after she received mixed reviews for her latest movie Liz & Dick.
A source told gossip website RadarOnline.com that Lindsay was advised to try her hand at a comedy TV series by her close friend Charlie Sheen. "Lindsay has asked her manager and agent to look into getting her her own television sitcom. Lindsay feels that the small screen would be a great way for her to revitalize her acting career and that a comedy would be the best bet. Lindsay feels most comfortable doing comedy and it was Charlie Sheen that told her she should do it. Charlie told Lindsay that it was an easy way to make very good money and help her to get her movie career back on track. Lindsay is loving the idea of having her own sitcom and would love to play someone in a story based on her crazy life," an insider said.
The former Two And A Half Men star has been helping the troubled actress a lot recently according to reports. He is also said to have sent her a check for $100,000 to cover almost half of her hefty tax bill after they bonded during filming Scary Movie 5 together in September.
Charlie Sheen wants to be an American Idol judge.
The Anger Management star says he would consider joining the judging panel of the singing show if the money was good enough and program bosses donated part of his salary to charity, after producer Nigel Lythgoe said he wanted him to get involved.
"If the numbers move the needle AND Idol matches 20% of my weekly salary for Autism Speaks, JDRF, and the Boys and Girls Club ... then the hell with it. As we say, pour the smoke. (sic)" he said.
However, the gossip website reports that the actor would only agree to a deal if FX, which airs Anger Management, were happy with him appearing on Fox.
American Idol is currently judged by Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson and though there is speculation the panel is set for some changes, Katy Perry won't be anyone's replacement.
Charlie Sheen will retire when Anger Management comes to an end.
The 46-year-old actor sees his forthcoming new comedy show as his "swan song," and rather than looking for further acting work, he is looking forward to spending more time with his five kids - Cassandra, 27, Sam, eight, Lola, seven, and two-year-old twins Bob and Max - when the program eventually draws to a close.
"When I'm done with this business it's just going to be about soccer games and amusement parks. And when [Anger Management] ends, I'm done. This is my swan song. I've been doing this 30 years. And there's a lot more out there to do than make-believe, you know? I mean, I'm grateful. I've got a dream life as a direct result of television, you know? But at some point you just get tired of wearing somebody else's clothes, saying somebody else's words and working in somebody else's space. I'm also aware of the fact that you don't get these kinds of shots in the same lifetime. You're only supposed to have one hit show, unless you're Kelsey Grammer."
Ashton Kutcher has ''no idea'' about the future of Two and a Half Men.
The 34-year-old actor joined the show as a replacement for Charlie Sheen last year, but admitted he hasn't been told yet if the program will be renewed for a tenth season or if he will even continue to play the role of broken-hearted internet billionaire Walden Schmidt.
"I don't think the show's been picked up for another season yet. I absolutely adore the time that I'm having. I'm having a great time on the show. There's some work I have during summer. I haven't heard from the powers that be yet."
Meanwhile, creator Chuck Lorre revealed Charlie is still a part of the show's "DNA" despite his acrimonious exit where he verbally blasted the showrunner.
"It's in our DNA. He's very much a part of our show, part of our lives. We've had wonderful years together and I'm not going to pretend they didn't happen," he said.
The Two and a Half Men crew are missing Charlie Sheen.
The production team behind the sitcom – on which Ashton Kutcher replaced Charlie after his hard partying lifestyle led to him being fired from the show – miss the way the actor used to joke around with them on set. "Ashton is nice and he tries to do things to get us to like him more and more, but he kind of feels like a step dad. He might be the best thing for the family, but everyone misses their 'original dad,' Charlie. With Charlie, we knew we could push his buttons and joke around about his personal life all the time. Ashton is all business and doesn't like to joke around with the guys about his life. It's off limits," an insider said.
Jon Cryer believes Charlie Sheen's sacking from Two and a Half Men was an "awful thing to be part of."
The 46-year-old actor - who starred alongside Charlie before he was removed from the show after a public spat with its creator Chuck Lorre and calling Jon a "troll" - did not enjoy watching the troubled star leave the show and was "surprised" by how it happened.
"I never want to go through that again. It was an awful thing to be part of. I'm glad that some peace has come out of it. I was surprised with everything that went down."
Jon has now been joined by Ashton Kutcher on the show, and he reveals he has "worked hard" on the set of the comedy. He added to the KLTA morning show in Los Angeles: "Ashton was amazing. He took the roof off the place. The man works hard for the money. It's a lovely vibe."
He refused to divulge how Charlie's character Charlie Harper dies in the show but added it was "funny." The forthcoming season of Two and a Half Men featuring Ashton Kutcher comes to TV on September 19.
Reports are circulating that CBS has finally found an actor to replace Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men: Ashton Kutcher.
Though, admittedly, we haven’t completely confirmed that we’re not being Punk’d.
Not that Kutcher hasn’t got sitcom chops. He first came to attention on That '70s Show, opposite the likes of Topher Grace, Mila Kunis, and others whose careers didn’t fare so well. Kutcher’s character will be brand-new and he’ll be introduced in the show’s next season.
Unless a torpedo of truth puts a halt on the production…again.

For the second year in a row, Charlie Sheen will join the ranks of Drew Carey’s Improv-A-Ganza, which airs on GSN. Sheen’s first appearance as part of the act was a surprise to everyone but Sheen -- even the comedians were startled.
We’re pretty sure that he got a specific invite this year. The show will begin airing on GSN on April 11 at 8pm and 11pm EST, but you won’t see Charlie Sheen until the April 12 episode.
We never thought we’d say this, but maybe Charlie Sheen really is winning. According to reporter Jeff Rossen, CBS has asked him to come back to Two and a Half Men.
Feel free to do a spit take now. Rossen says “discussions ongoing” and it’s “not a done deal.” And, he’s not the only one who’s reporting on the negotiations. Hollywoodlife found a “show insider” who says the rumors are true.
They might be, at that. CBS is in the business of making money, and Sheen is making it hand over fist with his sold-out comedy tour/stage thing. Recent rumors that Sheen has been talking to FOX about doing a show may have prompted the network to act.
Still, things could get a little sticky legally if CBS does want to make a deal. Charlie Sheen still has an active lawsuit, asking for a whopping $100 million, against Two and a Half Men studio Warner Bros.
