EXCLUSIVE: Two and a Half Men star Charlie Sheen missed his call time this morning but called the producers of the hit CBS comedy series to say that he needs to see a doctor and will come to the show’s rehearsal this afternoon. Per Sheen’s publicist Stan Rosenfield, “Charlie woke up this morning with an ear infection, and he will go see his ear doctor first, and then go to the set.”

Sheen has been under extra scrutiny following his wild weekend in Las Vegas that allegedly included heavy drinking and porn star encounters. He showed up for work on time yesterday and performed his duties on the series. Sheen has also been an object of concern for CBS, Warner Bros. and the series’ producers who have been looking for ways to help the star deal with his addiction problems.
