Producer Mark Burg scored big in the early 21st century via his work on one of the era's most successful horror film franchises, the serial-killer series "Saw," and most popular television shows, the Charlie Sheen sitcom "Two and a Half Men." Burg got his start in the late 1980s by working as either a producer or executive producer on such films as the teen comedy "Can't Buy Me Love" and Ron Shelton's baseball comedy "Bull Durham." The 1990s saw Burg build up his film resume with such titles as the action drama "Toy Soldiers" and Keenen Ivory Wayans's gangster parody "Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood," as well as co-creating Evolution Entertainment, which manages writers, directors, and actors in the world of film and television. In 2004, Burg also co-created a production company, Twisted Pictures, and personally financed (along with his partner, Gregg Hoffman), the original "Saw" film. The movie was a surprise hit, which then led to countless sequel films, all of which included Burg as producer. It was also during this time that Burg began his role as executive producer for the hit television series "Two and a Half Men," starring former '80s teen heartthrobs Charlie Sheen and Jon Cryer.
