Charlie Sheen nearing $25 million settlement with Warner Bros.

Hollywood is very good at rewarding bad behavior - latest example being a deal being worked out between the one-time star and the studio to settle out of his contract. LAT reports that the $25 million represents Sheen's participation in profits from "Two and a Half Men," the show he was fired from last March. From the Times:

Over the past few days while promoting a roast of himself scheduled to air on Monday night on the cable channel Comedy Central, Sheen made a few television appearances seeming contrite and acknowledging he was out of control when he was let go by Warner Bros. He even told Jay Leno, host of NBC's "The Tonight Show" that he would have fired himself too. On Sunday night, he appeared on Fox's telecast of the Emmy Awards wishing the cast and crew of "Two and a Half Men" good luck. "From the bottom of my heart I wish you nothing but the best for this upcoming season."
