Charlie Sheen's manager says the actor wants to complete his rehab and get back to work as soon as possible because he's worried about the crew not getting paid.
Mark Burg, who in addition to managing Sheen is also an executive producer on "Two and a Half Men," told the Los Angeles Times on Thursday that the star's rehab treatment will not last nearly as long as the three months previously reported. "The end of February is what I've been told," Burg tells the Times.
"Charlie would like to get back to work as soon as possible because he's concerned about the crew," Burg added. Sheen was rushed to the hospital last week and shortly thereafter announced that he was voluntarily entering rehab, prompting CBS to put his show "Two and a Half Men" on hiatus.
CBS has two more original episodes of the show that will air Monday and Feb. 14, but after that will have to rely on reruns.
His manager's comments come one day after Sheen himself spoke out for the first time since beginning treatment. "I have a lot of work to do to be able to return the support I have received from so many people," the actor said in a statement. "And to my fans, your good wishes have touched me very much."
