Charlie Sheen in Two and a Half Men

The film industry's most notorious bad boy (known for his collaborations with Oliver Stone in Platoon and Wall Street) didn't let a regular TV gig slow him down one bit. The wild and crazy actor quickly became the highest-paid star in television with the sitcom Two and a Half Men, but blew up his contract when he publicly dissed show creator Lorne Michaels.
