Emails in Sony hack reveal tasteless jokes at actor's expense. 

The Sony email hack is the gift that keeps on giving for gossip hounds in Hollywood. 

Lost amid the flurry of stories around pay discrepancies and catty personal opinions was this little email from Steve Mosko

"I think I will win the 90/10 bet on the over under on this ...it's hard to to be a drug addict and be HIV positive and do 40 eps a year," said the email which included a link to TV Week.

\The TV Week article discribed how Charlie Sheen, who recently revealed his positive HIV status publically on the Today Show with Matt Lauer, was frequently a no-show on the set of Anger Management

The email was sent in March 2014 to several Sony Pictures Television executives, according to the Washington Post, and implied that the executive did not believe the show would make it to sindication. 

While the email was a tasteless joke at Sheen's expense, it did also provide evidence that Sheen's status was already well-known in Hollywood and perhaps that his status would not prevent him from getting work. 

"As we speak, I have the chairman of Sony excited about doing a show again," Sheen told Lauer during the interview. "I have a couple of films lined up that I could, you know, put start dates on."
