Charlie Sheen: I'll Be Back (With a New Show)

Charlie SheenGetting fired from 'Two and a Half Men' won't keep Charlie Sheen from returning TV ... at least that's what he says.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Sheen ended his 'My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not an Option Tour' with a promise to his fans that he'd be returning to TV. Don't look for Sheen on CBS, the actor said his show would be on a competing network and, you guessed it, "epic."

Sheen, who is currently suing Warner Bros. TV and 'Men' creator Chuck Lorre, had previously expressed interest in returning to the hit CBS sitcom. However, after learning of Lorre's planned reboot, Sheen released a profanity-laced letter slamming his former boss.

At his last tour stop in Washington, Sheen reportedly told the crowd he was high the last eight years on 'Two and a Half Men.'

Sheen has been nominated for four Emmys during his stint on 'Men,' but never took home the trophy. But, it looks like Sheen won't get a chance to go for the award a fifth time, according to TVLine, Sheen missed the April 29 Emmy submission deadline. The actor may still be able to get his name into the running, TVLine cited an Emmy source claiming there's a loophole Sheen may be able to use to his advantage.

"The rule book states that 'It is the responsibility of the person making the entry to list all eligible entrants,' the source told TVLine. "TV production companies or studios or networks generally have an awards coordinator who handles most or all of the entries for a show, but with 'Two and a Half Men,' there was no central coordinator making manifold entries. At the entry deadline of April 29, we had a number of entries for show personnel - including the principal performers - but none for Charlie Sheen.

"When his representative came forward [on May 3] to ask if he could be included in the cluster of performers who were already entered, we considered the above inclusionary rule applicable, because a loose confederacy of other performer reps had already submitted a partial but incomplete team of principle performers, and with Charlie we would have accomplished the rule's letter and spirit intent of having 'all eligible entrants' in the fold."

Tell us: Do you think Sheen should return to TV? Would an Emmy nomination help save his career?
