Charlie Sheen heading for “Anger Management”


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: You knew someone was going to give Charlie Sheen another shot on primetime television, and now it sounds like the troubled actor is close to finalizing a sitcom deal.

Sheen will star in a small-screen version of the Adam Sandler movie “Anger Management,” though he won’t play the Sandler role, as you might have assumed. Instead, Sheen will play the unconventional therapist played by Jack Nicholson, E! News reports.

“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 via 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.”

Roth produced such Sheen vehicles as “Major League” and “Young Guns.”

“Who better than Charlie Sheen to tackle Anger Management,” Roth said in a statement. “With Charlie’s incredible talent and comedic gifts, he remains the leading man of TV sitcoms. I’m excited to collaborate with him once again.”

The duo hope to have a pilot ready by fall 2012.
