Charlie Sheen is disappointed his Two And A Half Men co-stars haven't openly supported him in his ongoing war of words with series creator Chuck Lorre.
Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones have remained silent throughout the dispute, which resulted in producers scrapping the remainder of the eighth season of the hit sitcom last week (ends25Feb11), and Sheen would like to hear what his TV brother and nephew have to say.
In a candid interview with news show Access Hollywood, the embattled star says, "It would be nice if a statement came out from him (Cryer) or Angus... saying, 'Alright, we get it now. We heard those questions; those are rooted in absolute and total truth...' It would be so nice to have the support of somebody."
Sheen used another TV interview recorded over the weekend (26-27feb11) to challenge Lorre with a series of carefully-worded questions.
He produced a series of cards and reeled off questions directly into the camera, asking Lorre why he had cancelled the remainder of the sitcom series in the wake of Sheen's rehab and health woes.
The actor's most pertinent question: "When you were told that the crew would suffer gravely as a result of your dictatorial laziness would you please explain what you meant by your statement, 'They are not my problem'.
"I'm sure there's, like, 120-something people that would love to hear the answer to that."
In his Access Hollywood chat, Sheen insisted he would make the first move in the awkward stand-off - and call his co-star Cryer after the interview.
