Charlie SheenCharlie Sheen made headlines for his surprise Emmy appearance and gracious remarks to his former co-stars. However, the moment was almost squashed by his 'Two and a Half Men' bosses.

According to Deadline, Chuck Lorre, 'Men' co-creator and executive producer, tried to get Sheen booted from the telecast.

Lorre reportedly approached John Shaffner, the chairman of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, about getting Sheen out of the telecast. Warner Bros. Television Group honcho Bruce Rosenblum made a call to Fox chairman Peter Rice trying to get Sheen's appearance cut.

Sheen is currently suing Lorre and Warner Bros. TV and they were afraid he'd use his time at the microphone to slam the show and other nominees from Lorre-produced shows. He did the opposite.

"From the bottom of my heart, I wish you nothing but the best for this upcoming season." Sheen said to his former cast. "We spent eight wonderful years together and I know you will continue to make great television."

Check out the video of his speech below.
