Charlie Sheen Blames Producers For 'Two and a Half Men' Hiatus

Charlie Sheen says he's recovered and ready to return to 'Two and a Half Men', but the show's producers apparently aren't.

The CBS series went on hiatus last month after Sheen was briefly hospitalized following a 911 call in which he was said be very intoxicated and in severe pain.

During a radio interview Monday on 'The Dan Patrick Show', Sheen explained that he was ready to get back on set but those in charge of the series weren't.

"I went back to work and I was banging on the stage door. 'Hello? Where is everybody?' I don't know what happened... I guess everything is closed," Sheen told Patrick. "We're on forced hiatus."

"They said, 'You get ready and we'll get ready' and I got ready and went back and nobody was there. I don't know what to tell you."

"I'm here and I'm ready. They're not. Bring it," he said. "I think maybe it was a timing thing. They didn't think it was going to happen this fast. I heal pretty quickly, but I also unravel pretty quickly."

Asked about when he expected shooting to resume, Sheen joked, "I believe August of 2014 at this pace. I don't know, it's supposed to be like the 28th or the 29th. That's what it is! It's the 29th in a non-leap year."

Sheen acknowledged that he's had "some problems lately" and said staying away from crack cocaine is good advice unless a person can "manage it socially."

Asked if he could, Sheen replied, "Yeah, but that kinda blew up in my face... like an exploding crack pipe."

"It's off-and-on," he said of his sobriety. "I was sober for a long time five years ago and was just bored out of my tree and thought, 'This is inauthentic; it's not who I am.'"

A spokesman for Sheen previously said he hoped to return to work by the end of February.
