The former “Two & A Half Men” star says that he was on steroids when playing Ricky “Wild Thing” Vaughn in 1989.
“I reach behind me for a fist bump from Brian Wilson, who goes, ‘Winning!'”
Charlie Sheen recently revealed that while preparing for his role in 1989’s “Major League”, he took a few performance enhancing drugs to help with his own performance as rookie pitching ace, Rick Vaughn.
Due to his recent actions and history of allowing the world in to his wild ride of drugs, prostitutes, and abnormal behavior, who are we not to believe him?
“Let’s just say that I was enhancing my performance a little bit. It was the only time I ever did steroids,” the actor told Sports Illustrated in an interview featured in the new “Where Are They Now?” issue.
“I did them for like six or eight weeks,” he continued. “You can print this… my fastball went from 79 to like 85.”
And after over 20 years, the classic flick still is amongst the favorite sports films of all-time with both professional athletes and A-list movie stars alike.
“We had this party at my place a few months ago to watch ‘Major League.’ It was awesome. The beard was there — Brian Wilson, from the [San Francisco] Giants. We had [former pro baseball players] Eddie Murray and Kenny Lofton. And I got David Ward to introduce the film. Colin Farrell
showed up. And when my big strikeout at the end comes on, the place goes nuts like we’ve never even seen the movie before,” he told the mag. “I’m in between my two girlfriends, and I look over and there’s Colin Farrell giving me a thumbs-up. I reach behind me for a fist bump from Brian Wilson, who goes, ‘Winning!’ I’m telling you, [director] David Ward created a baseball classic, and baseball is all that matters in the world.” says Sheen.
Wow… I’m not absolutely sure if Charlie is still living in 1989, but rumor has it that he’s looking to produce and star in either a sequel to ‘Major League’ or a re-telling of the classic. I’ll leave my opinion about the upcoming film until I see if a studio is crazy enough to go along with his idea.
