If you’re outraged by Charlie Sheen’s interviews today, here’s one fact that might make you feel better: The actor won’t get paid for the axed Two and a Half Men episodes.

Sources say Sheen will not receive his estimated $1.2 million per-episode salary for the remaining four half-hours that CBS had commissioned from Warner Bros. (There were originally eight episodes left in the season, but CBS reduced the order after the show went on a production hiatus so Sheen could seek treatment.) Sheen is currently ranked the highest-paid actor on TV.

As for the rest of the Men cast and crew, it’s currently unclear if they will be left high and dry, or will receive some measure of post-Sheen meltdown hazard pay.
