First ‘Anger Management’ Teaser Kills Off Charlie Sheen
We’ll say it: God bless Charlie Sheen for being such a good sport. Rather than ignore the epically un-”winning” meltdown that took him off ‘Two and a Half Men‘ and nearly destraoyed his career, good ol’ Tiger Blood is taking it in stride in order to promote ‘Anger Management.’ If it doesn’t kill him first.
The first official promo for Charlie Sheen’s forthcoming FX vehicle ‘Anger Management’ pays homage to the actor’s famous ‘Two and a Half Men’ departure, which opened the ninth season with a funeral for Sheen’s character Charlie Harper, having been “exploded like a meat balloon” by a train abroad. The ‘Anger Management’ spot, which debuted during ‘Justified‘s third season finale “Slaughterhouse,” offers nothing in the way of actual footage, but sets a good tone for the attitude of the series.
‘Management,’ premiering on Thursday, June 28 and based very loosely on the premise of the 2003 film, features Sheen as a non-traditional therapist specializing in you guessed it, anger management. He holds sessions with his group of primary patients each week, as well as performing pro bono counseling for an inmate group at a state prison.
Previously, the character “Charlie” was a stalled minor league baseball prospect whose road to the majors was sidetracked by his own struggle with anger issues. The series also stars Selma Blair, Shawnee Smith, Daniela Bobadilla, Michael Arden, and Noureen DeWulf.
