BOSTON (CBS) – Charlie Sheen stopped by the 98.5 Sports Hub studios early Wednesday morning for a lengthy interview with hosts Fred Toucher and Rich Shertenlieb.
Shertenlieb went to Sheen’s show at Agganis Arena Tuesday night and was able to get a front row seat.
He then invited Sheen to come on their top-rated morning show.
Sheen obliged and came by the studio in Brighton at 12:30 a.m. for an hour and-a-half interview.
“The crowd was an 11. The show was like an 8.5, 9 at some points,” Sheen said about his Agganis performance.

Perhaps the most surprising aspect of the interview was when Sheen said he is not receiving syndication payments for his hit show Two and a Half Men.
“I probably shouldn’t talk about that. I’m supposed to (be getting syndication payments) but that is, what’s the term, ‘being withheld,’” Sheen said.
“So you are not being paid for it?” Toucher asked.
“Not completely,” Sheen replied. “At all actually.”
“How do they justify that?” Shertenlieb asked.
“They can’t, that’s why I’m suing them,” Sheen said. “It is unfair.”
Sheen also said his return to the show was about “85-percent” but could not elaborate.

“He talked about being on the set of ‘Apocalypse Now’ and going back there ten years later after his dad had a heart attack duiring the filming of that of movie and going to shoot ‘Platoon.’ He tried to call Jon Cryer, he tried to call his brother,” Toucher said.
Sheen also said there is a script for Major League 3, and many of the original actors from the first movies are slated to reprise their roles.
