I think Robert Downey Jr., in his prime, could out-party even the Mickster. RDJ was infamous for being uninsurable, meaning no studios could actually hire him because no insurance company would foot the bill for backing a production in which he was involved. Even Charlie Sheen hasn't reached that level of alpha quite yet.

^If we're talking strictly crazy, I think you guys are forgetting about Gary Busey.

Yeah, but nobody likes Gary Busey. He's just not simpatico like the happy-crazy guys like Sheen, Downey Jr, Cryer, etc.

RubeBabeIâ„¢ lived in Palm Springs while RDJ was in his partying prime. She said he cut a very wide swath during his visits to the desert.

The problem is that since his firing it has become all too obvious that Charlie Sheen is far, far more interesting than the character he plays on TV.

Pretty sure it's been known for awhile. This isn't Charlie Sheen's first well-publicized drug 'n sex addiction rodeo. It's just the most visible and insane. But the man has a long and storied history of boozin', whorin', snortin', and threatening hookers with knives.

Heidi Fleiss went on record saying mickey Rourke was THE MAN when she was running her whore stable and she made a point of saying that Charlie wishes he was like him.

That dude was so high on H, I doubt he could even get it up. There is a book about some former Heidi Fleiss girls and one goes into detail about how much of a pathetic junkie he was at the time..

I'm not denying that Mickey was a wild and crazy guy; I'm just saying that Downey probably had him beat. When we're at such an extreme end of the spectrum, however, it's really hard to call the ball. We're now talking about differences on such a minute scale. We'd pretty much have to measure the coke down to the milligram. Tom Sizemore was also a pretty insane partier and a regular in Heidi's stable, as I recall. I think he even dated Heidi Fleiss for awhile.

I remember shooting sizemore on VH1. Good show, was really hoping he'd clean himself up. Always loved Sizemore's acting.

This is a good way to settle his lawsuit. Instead of paying out the ass, CBS reactivates its cash cow.

Looks like "Two and a Half Men" may be whole again soon.

Without determining who represents what fraction, NBC's Jeff Rossen is reporting that, according to a source close to Sheen, two weeks after Sheen was fired from the show, the $2 million an episode man may get his job back on the biggest sitcom on television.

"Sources close to Charlie Sheen tell NBC News, CBS has offered him his job back. Discussions ongoing. Not a done deal," Rossen said via Twitter.

Of any reporter, Rossen would know; Sheen has praised the reporter who interviewed him for his multi-part NBC special report (part one and part two).

Hollywoodlife.com also reports that discussions are ongoing. A show insider told the site, "The rumors are true "” CBS wants Charlie back. They saw how popular his tour has become, how it has been selling out, and when word spread that he started talking to Fox about a late-night show, some decision-makers got a little antsy."

There's an 80% chance that Sheen returns, the source told the site.

If this is all true, it's a huge turnaround for the network and Sheen, who have been at war over the last month. Sheen ripped series creator Chuck Lorre in a series of radio and television interviews, and sued for $100 million following his firing and the show's decision to shut down for the rest of the season.

Since the firing, Sheen has found new sources of income: he's working to make $1 million a year in Twitter endorsements, and he's embarking on a North American live tour, for which he'll earn $7 million.

I could care less about network television. But if he pulls this off, good for Charlie.

I'm torn here... Part of me wants to hang out with Don Carlos and snag a discarded Godess. Part of me thinks more money and a return to the show will make him think he really is invincible and he will kill himself from drugs as a result.

Its funny; his antics have made him so newsworthy that CBS wants to hire Charlie Sheen Plus. My initial reaction was that CBS was offering his job to blunt the lawsuit, but with more $$$ on the table, wow.
