He’s Baaack. Charlie Sheen Gets New Show

Fresh from being fired from a hit TV sitcom in which he just “played himself”, TV’s favorite bad-boy Charlie Sheen has agreed to do a new show in which he will play – who else – someone just like “himself.”

The new show – if it comes to fruition – will be a spinoff of the movie Anger Management, made in 2003 with Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler. The show is still in the pre-development stage, and it still has no network or even a writer attached to it.

The Hollywood press is reporting that Sheen will play an updated version of  Nicholson’s character in the movie — in which a mild-mannered, non-confrontational man is ordered to attend group anger management sessions led by a therapist who could probably use some anger management himself.

Sheen quipped that he agreed to do this show because “while it might be a big stretch for me to play a guy with serious anger management issues, I think it is a great concept.”

The question is which network – if any – will gamble millions of dollars on a show starring someone as volatile and unpredictable as Sheen, who is still embroiled in a $100-million lawsuit with Warner Bros. and producer Chuck Lorre over his firing from Two and a Half Men.  Another big question is which writer will sign on to develop the series with him.
