Charlie Sheen is still aiming to win...$100 million.

The unemployed actor, 45, is suing Warner Bros. Television and Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre for a whopping $100 million plus punitive damages, TMZ reports.

Sheen, who made $1.2 million per episode of the CBS show, is demanding he be compensated for the 8 cancelled episodes from the current season -- and is also suing on behalf of the sitcom's crew.

His attorney Marty Singer slams Lorre for making Sheen "the scapegoat" in the ongoing war over the seriest. "[Lorre] believes himself to be so wealthy and powerful that he can unilaterally decide to take money away from the dedicated cast and crew ...in order to serve his own ego and self-interest," reads Singer's introduction to the filing.

Singer alleges that Lorre decided to cancel this season's remaining episodes prior to Sheen's very public criticism of him. The suit also says that Warner Bros. fired Sheen when he was "sick," which violates State and federal law.
