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.
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.
When a Hollywood star is in need of a quick paycheck, there's only one thing to do: travel overseas to film a commercial! The thinking is that no one in America will see them "slumming it" by hocking wares to the citizens of Japan, but this is the internet and all eventually comes to light. The latest of these is a Dutch beer commercial starring America's second favorite celebrity psychopath (trailing just behind Mel Gibson): 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.
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!
...It's been something of a long day and our heads might not be screwed on correctly right now, so bear with us as we try to get out this next sentence:
'Two and a Half Men' is bringing back Charlie Sheen, but giving the role to Kathy Bates. Nope, it didn't sound any less crazy that time either.
FX has finally scheduled out the long-publicized debut of Charlie Sheen's 'Anger Management' project, which takes its name as a loose adaptation of the 2003 Jack Nicholson / Adam Sandler film of the same name.
