Well, after his standup tour was all but short-lived, raucous actor Charlie Sheen will now be making his triumphant return to television (it’s not the bigscreen, but it’ll do). Officially announced earlier today, Sheen will be spearheading a sitcom dubbed “Anger Management.”
The show will be a loose spinoff of the 2003 film, going by the same name, which featured Jack Nicholson playing the role of the outlandish therapist. The recently fired leading man will be carrying the same role, as he had this to say on the forthcoming project:
“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. “It also provides me with real ownership in the series, a certain amount of creative control and the chance to be back in business with one of my favorite movie producers of all time, Joe Roth.”
Sheen has previously worked with Roth on “Major League,” “The Three Musketeers,” and a handful of other projects.
It will definitely be interesting to see if the disgruntled actor can put all his “distractions” aside and get things back on the right track again. After all, “Two and a Half Men” was rather popular.Tags: Charlie Sheen, returning to tv
