Washington: Even though Charlie Sheen has been fired from the hit CBS series ‘Two and a Half Men’, experts have said that the troubled star still stands to make 100 million dollars off the show.

The actor is currently engaged in a legal battle with Warner Brothers, the production company for the hit sitcom.

Even though he will no longer appear on episodes of ‘Two and a Half Men’, and the show may never produce another original episode, Sheen has already made 177 episodes that will live on and pay him into perpetuity.

“Sheen will make millions, depending on how good a deal he got on his residuals when he negotiated his contract because of all the ancillary opportunities there are for the show,” Brad Adgate, a television analyst told a website.

“Syndication and global distribution of the show are going to be big moneymakers for Sheen,” he added.

If Warner Bros is able to harvest around 4 million dollars an episode for the show in domestic syndication, media analysts estimate that Sheen, as the show`s leading man, stands to gain approximately half a million per episode.
