Three more days will see Charlie Sheen once again unleashed on all our television screens, with the debut of Sheen's post 'Two and a Half Men' vehicle 'Anger Management.' Ever since FX picked up the project, very loosely adapted from the 2003 film of the same name, eyes and ears have been on Sheen to see how he'd handle his first gig after exiting CBS' powerhouse sitcom. Still, who needs hard feelings? The Ma-Sheen wants you to see the very best of 'Men' first!
Charlie Sheen, America's second favorite psychotic madman (ranking behind Mel Gibson, of course), spoke to the New York Times about his new FX show 'Anger Management' and slipped the details about what he plans to do once the show has run its coure. In short, he has no plans. In fact, Sheen made it pretty clear that retirement is on his mind.
As the world watched Charlie Sheen's nuclear meltdown in the days after he was canned from 'Two and a Half Men' last year, a lot of people couldn't help but find the irony in the word he used to describe his situation: "Winning!"
But hindsight being what it is, Sheen now reveals in an interview that he shares that feeling, saying he was "in total denial" during that dark time.
June is finally upon us, meaning that cable rolls out its summer slate while the network giants slumber, or roll out some insane reality shows, or what have you. As for FX, this summer will not only see the second season of 'Wilfred' and the third season of 'Louie,' but also see the debut of Charlie Sheen's post-'Two and a Half Men' vehicle 'Anger Management' and FX's first late night foray 'Brand X with Russell Brand.' How would you like a sneak peek?
FX knows that Charlie Sheen has an image. One could say he has an image problem. He was booted off of 'Two and Half Men' (which is doing okay without him), and is known for not knowing when to shut up. But Sheen didn't follow the Tom Cruise playbook by going away for a while, and instead embraced the crazy. The latest teaser for 'Anger Management' plays on that.
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.
It really is quite a trip to consider that Charlie Sheen's infamous 'Two and a Half Men' exit and the various viral public meltdowns have been in our rear-view for the better part of a year now. So with "winning" behind us, have we only 'Anger Management' to look forward to? 'Today' has your answer!
