It looks like Charlie Sheen is having the last laugh after all. You would have thought that being fired from Two and a Half Men would have been the death of the recovering addict's career. But not so much. The 46-year-old actor has once again risen from the cigarette ashes to become king of the hill (or money pile in this case). Anger Management is apparently working wonders for the star...and his fat wallet. Sources tell TMZ that Sheen's new job on FX could land him upwards of $100 million for his troubles...or lack thereof. Following its inaugural season, the hit sitcom just got a tall order for an additional 90 episodes, which means beaucoup bucks for Sheen. Originally, FX agreed to 90 more shows IF the first 10 episodes hit a certain number. As it turns out, the show didn't just hit that magic number -- it surpassed it with a whopping 4.53 million viewers. The lucrative deal likely will make Sheen richer than ever. The head honchos are looking to protect their major asset, so much so that Sheen has to work continuously for the next two years. Read between the lines, and it's clear that they're not leaving Sheen time for a whole lot of coke and hooker parties.
