Charlie Sheen is still ranting—but move over, Chuck Lorre, there's a new target.

The just-fired actor is now going after former costar Jon Cryer for not reaching out to him.

"Like I said: You're with me, or you're with the trolls," Sheen exclusively told E! News today. "Obviously he's with the trolls."

And Charlie doesn't stop there.

Sheen was phoning in from "Sober Valley Lodge," where he claims to still be clean and sober and hard at work on his "manifesto."

"You'll find out more tonight on the show," he said of his continuing Sheen's Korner show on ustream.tv. "I'm busy writing my manifesto from now until then." (Sheen previously announced he was writing a book tentatively titled Apocalypse Me, but he wasn't clear if that was different from the manifesto.)

Sheen tells us he will be solo on tonight's livestream. "I don't need guests," he said. "I have one: Me."

He also says he is milking his time in the spotlight for as much as possible "because I just got fired. Because I have to pay child support. Because I'm not giving it away for free anymore. Because people have to work for it now."

Now back to his "troll" costar Cryer. Sheen had been expecting a sympathetic phone call from his Emmy-winning wingman when Sheen first launched his war with show creator Lorre.

"Jon has not called me. He's a turncoat, a traitor, a troll. Clearly he's a troll," said Sheen. "He issued a statement. Is it gonna take me calling him a 'traitor, juvenile and scared' for him to get it?"

Sheen might be misinformed on this count. E! News has repeatedly requested a statement from Cryer since Sheen first lashed out against the show over a week ago, but Cryer, via his rep, has declined to enter the fray. Cryer did do a sketch on Ellen riffing on his current unemployment but did not address Sheen directly; there was also a fake statement on Twitter from a spoof Cryer saying he was "shocked" with the whole debacle.

Furthermore, a source close to Cryer insists that Cyrer and Sheen have communicated and that Cryer did reach out to Sheen, but that out of respect, Cryer was not going to comment publicly.

Sheen has kinder words for some other cast and crew of the show, specifically citing several who are "not trolls" because they reached out and called him. Most notably "half man"  Angus T. Jones, Conchata Ferrell (Berta the housekeeper), Melanie Lynskey (Rose the neighbor), Marin Hinkle (Judith Harper) and show director Jamie Widdoes.

And what if Cryer calls Sheen now?

"What's there to say? I'll tell him 'You're a little late. Goodbye, troll,' " said Sheen. "When I'm starring in multimillion-dollar films and he's begging me for a supporting role I'll say, 'You left me out in the cold with all of your guilt and stupidity.' "
