"I'm coming a little late to the party, but I’ll post my experience on attending the 2 ½ Men taping with Martin Sheen guest starring last Friday. The episode was great with several laugh out loud moments. Martin Sheen’s performance was brilliant, as always, playing Rose’s Dad in the episode. If he was able to get an emmy for his scene in Murphy Brown, then he definitely deserves an emmy for this performance. During one of the breaks in filming he introduced himself and chatted with a few people sitting in the front row, and during another break he broke out into a James Cagney impersonation and the audience had a good laugh. For The West Wing fans tired of the vests wardrobe has been stuffing Martin Sheen in since the end of Season 5, not to worry, he actually wears a non-Jed suit in this episode – it was great to see him actually able to breathe!
After the cast introductions (after the taping), they brought out a big cake for Angus T. Jones and everyone sang Happy Birthday (it was his 12th birthday – I think). Then Charlie Sheen chatted and signed autographs for a few fans and Jon Cryer thanked people for coming to the taping as we walked out the doors. All things considered a very enjoyable time. The episode is a must see for Martin Sheen fans!
