Alec Baldwin took to The Huffington Post to write a powerful story both about his own career trajectory and offer some sobering advice to Charlie Sheen, which includes sobering up, writing a check and begging for his job back:
“…you know what you should do? Take a nap. Get a shower. Call Chuck. Go on Letterman and make an apology. Write a huge check to the B’Nai Brith. And then beg for your job back. Your fans demand it. You will never win because when you are as big a douchebag as some of these guys are, they have no choice but to snuff you…
Sober up, Charlie. And get back on TV, if it’s not too late. This is America. You want to really piss off Chuck and Warner Brothers and CBS? Beg for America’s forgiveness. They will give it to you. And then go back. You are a great television star. And you’ve got the gig.”
It seems unlikely that Sheen is going to beg for anything… his stage show, which started selling tickets on Saturday, sold out in 18 minutes, a Ticketmaster record.
