LOS ANGELES (AP) — The crew of “Two and a Half Men” will be paid for four episodes, and Charlie Sheen says “it’s a start” in his ongoing battle with the show’s producers.

Warner Bros. Television and CBS have canceled the remaining eight episodes of this season, citing Sheen’s erratic behavior last week. The actor followed up Monday with a series of television interviews in which he threatened legal action and extolled his hard-partying ways.

Sheen tells The Associated Press he’s not satisfied with the crew payments, saying they should be paid for eight episodes. He says he’s not concerned about his own paycheck.

Asked about reimbursements for fellow actors Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones, Sheen says, “They’re next.”
