Charlie Sheen is quite a character.  Just last Thursday he blasted the producer of his CBS television show Two and a Half Men during a radio interview, calling him a ”stupid, stupid little man,” and a “contaminated maggot.”  [pullquote quote="I have one speed. I have one gear. Go." credit="Charlie Sheen"]The rant prompted CBS to axe the remainder of the season of the show (neither Sheen nor the rest of the cast and crew will be paid for the episodes that weren’t filmed).

In an interview with ABC’s Good Morning America (airing Tuesday morning), Sheen vows that he’ll come out the winner in the lawsuit he intends to file against CBS, ”I’m here to collect. And they’re going to lose. They’re going to lose in a courtroom, so I would recommend that they do an out-of-court settlement.”

About his drug-use, Sheen says: “I got tiger blood, man,” he said. “My brain….fires in a way that is — I don’t know, maybe not from this particular terrestrial realm.”

As far as the danger of relapsing back into his drug-fueled lifestyle, Charlie isn’t worried.  ”I’m not going to, period, the end,” he said. “I blinked and I cured my brain, that’s how. Everybody has the power. …Can’t is the cancer of happen. I can’t do it. The Nike slogan doesn’t say, ‘Just Try It.’ Oh, OK. Just try it. No, ‘Just Do It,’ man.”

When asked if he was disgusted with himself when he thought back to the last time he used drugs, he responded: ”No, I’m proud of what I created, it was radical.”  ”I exposed people to magic, I exposed them to something they’re never otherwise going to see in their boring, normal lives and I gave that to them.”
