Troubled actor Charlie Sheen made a surprise appearance at the 63rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday night in Los Angeles in a pleasant, leaner and sober demeanour. And if that wasn’t enough of a shocker, he even offered his blessings to the hit TV series, Two and A Half Men, from which he was fired.
The 46 year old actor was reportedly selected as last minute presenter of the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series award, which he wryly described as my old category and took a moment before reading the nominees to wish his former series well.
“From the bottom of my heart, I wish you nothing but the best for this upcoming season. We spent eight wonderful years together and I know you will continue to make great television,” he said.
The ninth season of the hit comedy series began with Ashton Kutcher replacing Sheen on Monday night. Kutcher, on the other hand, joined his co-star in the series, Jon Cryer, on stage to present the Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series award and mocked Sheen. “Jon, I want to tell you something. I do not think that you are a troll,” said Kutcher in a nod to Sheen, who infamously called Cryer a troll in interviews last year.
