I saw the Charlie Sheen interview on NBC while I was working out. Something appears to be very wrong with him, and I'm not just talking about the fact that he wasn't making any sense. He kept jerking his head to the side in quick little bobs and he barely blinked. Made me wonder if there were something beyond the drug addiction behind all this strange behavior or if the drug abuse had been severe enough to cause some neurological problems.
At this point, I also think interviewing him is a bit beyond the pale, as there's nothing to be gained from it. He doesn't answer questions. He just rambles incoherently, and it's quite possible that the attention is just feeding the manic behavior. Just the few minutes I saw of the interview didn't make me want to rush out and watch more. My overwhelming reaction was to feel great pity for his family and friends who will now forever have a public record of his meltdown. Oh, and additional pity for everyone connected to his show whose employment is jeopardized by his issues. I never watched the show myself, but this is no job market in which to be out of work. If the show is canceled, the people behind the scenes, who aren't paid the way Sheen was, and don't have the option to bank enough money to live comfortably for some time, may be facing some tough times.
