Co-star defends Sheen 


LOS ANGELES — While CBS is keeping mum about Charlie Sheen, one of his co-stars has been speaking out and sharing kind words about the embattled actor.
“Two and a Half Men” star Holland Taylor defended the actor she has worked with since the show began in 2003.
“Charlie was cordial and polite with all of his cast mates and crew, sometimes even courtly — and always witty,” Taylor said Tuesday in an e-mail to The Associated Press.
Sheen was fired from the hit CBS show Monday.

“I always look for everything,” says the comedian, sitting at a table at the theater-district hangout Sardi’s before rehearsals of his new gritty play by Stephen Adly Guirgis.
