Warner Bros. will cough up the four weeks' worth of cash it would have paid the cast of Charlie Sheen's canceled Two and a Half Men, reports TMZ, a move Sheen tells the AP is "a good start." Warner Bros. confirmed the move, which will yield about $2 million for some 100 crewmembers. One says they're "ecstatic." Of fellow actors Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones, Sheen says, "They're next."
