(Newser) – Alec Baldwin has a message for recently fired Charlie Sheen: When it comes to studio executives, “You can't win. Really. You can't,” he writes on the Huffington Post. In light of that stark fact, he also has some advice for Sheen: “Take a nap. Get a shower. Call Chuck. Go on Letterman and make an apology. And then beg for your job back.” Baldwin can speak to all this because he had his own run-in with a studio executive, back when David Kirkpatrick bounced him from the sequels to The Hunt for Red October, an experience he recounts in detail in the HuffPo piece.

From that, Baldwin learned that the entertainment industry is “the rock under which you find the biggest, lyingest, thievingest scumbags on Earth.” And “when you are as big a douchebag as some of these guys are, they have no choice but to snuff you,” Baldwin concludes. “Sober up, Charlie. And get back on TV, if it's not too late. This is America. You want to really piss off Chuck and Warner Brothers and CBS? Beg for America's forgiveness. They will give it to you. And then go back. You are a great television star. And you've got the gig.” One last piece of advice: “PS ... buy Cryer a really nice car.” (Click to see why Sheen’s lawsuit is not without merit.)

Baldwin is giving Sheen advice ? Thats Funny ! Was'nt it Baldwin who cussed his kid over the phone and refused to run to Canada in 2004 ? Sheen has more than enough money to retire and does'nt need third rate advice from a fourth rate actor. don't think much of Charlie but will take him over Baldwin any day.

This guy had a $2m an episode acting career. That's $52m a year. Plus another fortune in syndication. This guy is a first class asshole.
