Charlie Sheen: Give me a raise

Charlie Sheen has said he wants a raise to come back to Two And A Half Men.

Show bosses ceased filming on the current series of the hit comedy after Sheen's increasingly erratic behaviour but now the actor is claiming he needs more money to start filming again.

The troubled star appeared on two rival morning shows - Good Morning America and Today - to continue his attack on CBS producers for shutting down the show.

NBC interviewer Jeff Rossen appeared startled when Sheen said he wanted to be paid three million US dollars an episode to return to the show. He's reportedly paid 1.8 million an episode now, making him one of the highest-paid actors on television.

"You want a raise?" Rossen asked.

Sheen replied: "Yeah, look what they put me through."
