"Take a nap. Get a shower … And then beg for your job back. Your fans demand it," Alec Balwin of 30 Rock told Charlie Sheen in a first-person piece written for The Huffington Post headlined "Two and a Half Men Is Better Than None."
According to Baldwin, Sheen "can’t win" if he keeps up his rants and outrageous behavior.
"When executives at studios and networks move up to the highest ranks, they are given a book," Baldwin wrote. "The book is called How to Handle Actors. And one principle held dear in that book is that no actor is greater than the show itself when the show is a hit."
"And in that regard, they are often right," Baldwin went on. "Add to the fact that the actor who is torturing their diseased egos is a drug-addled, porn star-squiring, near Joycean Internet ranter, and they really want you to go."
Baldwin makes a suggestion to the troubled actor: "Go on Letterman and make an apology. Sober up, Charlie. And get back on TV, if it’s not too late. Beg for America’s forgiveness. They will give it to you."
And one last thing, said Baldwin. "P.S. Buy [Jon] Cryer a really nice car."
