According to TMZ, Charlie Sheen’s people are saying that if Warner Bros. replaces Charlie Sheen and keeps producing “Two and a Half Men” — Charlie keeps drawing a paycheck. It’s called the Michael J. Fox clause…
Charlie’s camp told TMZ, Charlie has what they call a “Michael J. Fox” clause in his contract. When Fox was doing “Spin City,” his contract stated he would keep getting his salary if the show was in production, even if he left. Ironically, when Charlie took over for Michael, Michael kept drawing his salary.
Sources say when Charlie signed on for “Two and a Half Men,” his contract provided an identical clause, so Charlie’s people believe Warner Bros. will have to pay if they keep doing the show.
However, Warner Bros. says they fired Charlie for cause, nullifying the contract.
