Sources close to Charlie Sheen’s negotiations with Warner Bros. TV are “cautiously optimistic” that the two sides will be able to come to terms on a new deal that would keep the star on CBS’ hit Two and a Half Men for two more seasons, matching the length of actor’s contract with the length of CBS’ pickup for the show. Indications are that both sides want to make a deal. There is another sign that, despite declaring publicly that he is ready to leave Men and move on with his life, Sheen seems keen on returning to the show. TMZ is reporting that the actor’s lawyers are deep in plea negotiations with Aspen prosecutors with the goal to make a plea deal and settle his legal problems before CBS’ upfront presentation on May 19.
