He’s back and winning! The “Rock Star From Mars” Charlie Sheen is set to return to television in a new sitcom titled Anger Management, which is a TV adaptation of the 2003 movie Anger Management which starred Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler.
Sheen will play the Jack Nicholson character a provocative doctor with some odd therapeutic techniques. So far the show doesn’t have a network or start date, but it does have interest from ABC and Fox not to mention cable TV.
Reportedly Sheen has a big stake in show and some creative control. When he was fired from Two and a Half Men was earning $1.8 million an episode, he wont make that but with ownership he will make a lot.
Charlie says he chose Anger Management because, while it might be a big stretch for him to play a guy with serious anger management issues, he thought it’s a great concept and can’t wait to get back to work.
