'Two and a Half Men' crew will get paid

Charlie Sheen may not be getting paid for the canceled Two and a Half Men episodes – but the show’s crew is.

Sources confirm to EW that Warner Bros. will pay the Men team for four of the eight episodes that were lost due to CBS and the studio halting production on the show. Men exec producer Chuck Lorre, a studio source says, was instrumental in pushing through the payday. One estimate put the cost of reimbursing the crew for the four episodes at $2 million.

“It’s a start,” Sheen told the AP when he was told the news, noting that payments for co-stars Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones should be “next.”
