Two and a Half Men

Charlie Sheen’s lawyer has confirmed that the actor will return to work later this month after a spell on the sideline.

Yale Galanter told E! Online that Sheen will return to the set of Two and a Half Men in two weeks’ time.

“We are thinking Charlie will be going back to work two weeks from today,” he said.

“Charlie is fine healthwise and doing really well. Things are looking good. Everybody’s intentions are to get him back in the swing of things as soon as possible.”

Sheen spent a short time in a rehab facility late last month and production on the sitcom was forced to cease.

Despite all the trouble Charlie Sheen has been in recently, he still has one thing going for him: he earns more that anyone else on TV.

The Two and a Half Men star has been named the highest-earning TV star, finishing ahead of the likes of House actor Hugh Laurie and American Idol host Ryan Seacrest.

Sheen pulls a whopping $1.25m per episode of the sitcom, which he recently resigned on to for more seasons. Why wouldn’t you?

His co-star Jon Cryer earns a mild $550,000 for the same amount of work- coming in at second place on the list.

Hugh Laurie is the highest-paid drama actor, earning over $400,000 per episode of House, with Law & Order: SVU actors Christopher Meloni and Mariska Hargitay tied at second on $395,000.

Comedy stars Tina Fey pulls $350,000 per episode for 30 Rock while The Office boss Steve Carell’s pay cheque reads $297,000 per outing.
