Charlie Sheen Cleverly Cast in TV Version of 'Anger Management'
Riding the tidal wave of Charlie Sheen's epic public breakdown, several television had the idea to cast the actor in the TV adaptation of the 2003 movie "Anger Management," reports KTLA. The actor will reportedly have a significant ownership stake in the show, in addition to being its star. A ploy, perhaps, to keep him on good behavior? No one knows.
Anyway, the joke isn't lost on Sheen. According to KTLA:
"I chose 'Anger Management' 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," Sheen said in a statement.
The Hollywood Reporter notes that Sheen would play the role originated by Jack Nicholson in the film: "an ex-athlete who becomes a counselor to defendants in the criminal justice system while dealing with anger management issues of his own," they write.
The show hasn't found a network yet, but will be made by Lionsgate Television and distributed by Debmar-Mercury.
