Harvey Weinstein: Charlie Sheen Is Playing a 'Losing Game' With CBS (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Mar 2nd 2011 12:45AM
Uber-producer Harvey Weinstein was on 'Piers Morgan Tonight' (weekdays, 9PM ET on CNN), where he praised Charlie Sheen -- who Weinstein worked with on the 'Scary Movie' franchise -- as one of the best actors around "when motivated."

But Weinstein wasn't buying into Piers Morgan's theory that Sheen is currently playing a "smart game" with CBS, because, in Morgan's opinion, the network needs the "massive business" that 'Two and a Half Men' brings in.

"I know (CBS president) Les Moonves," Weinstein explained. "Charlie is playing a losing game."

"No one show is going to make a difference to CBS," Weinstein continued. "CBS under Les Moonves makes a billion dollars a year in a business that people say isn't working ... (Moonves) is a dangerous guy to go against."

However, if Sheen does lose his stand-off with CBS, Weinstein might have something for the embattled actor:

"I'd put him in 'Scary Movie' Four, Five, Six, Seven ...," Weinstein said.

So Sheen's got that going for him. Which is nice.

Harvey knows the business but so does Moonves. Someone else will hire Sheen for the notoriety as much as anything else and he (Sheen) will not have the losers around his neck like the castmates he has now. Way to speak up guys.
