(Newser) – Charlie Sheen's in rehab, and that means the crew of Two and a Half Men isn't working—so Sheen has offered to pay a third of their salaries until he's back, reports TMZ. He'll do so if CBS and Warner Bros. chip in the rest. It's a move that echoes what David Letterman and Jay Leno did during the 2007-2008 screenwriters' strike—except that Sheen's problems are wholly created by himself. A CBS executive says he's not aware of the offer, adding that the show won't resume filming until March at the earliest—assuming Sheen is ready.
