Charlie Sheen is Back With Anger Management

 

Carlos Irwin Estévez, better known as badass Charlie Sheen, is back! The erstwhile Two and a Half Men star has signed a contract with Lionsgate Television for an upcoming TV sitcom.

According to reports, the said series is loosely based on the 2003 comedy flick Anger Management. The story revolves around a “mild-mannered, non-confrontational man ordered to attend group anger management sessions led by a therapist who could probably use some anger management himself,” said the Lionsgate press release.

Sheen, who most recently made headlines with his megalomaniac antics, agreed to play the part because he liked the idea very much. “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,” said the 46-year-old actor. The Platoon star also attributes working with his favorite movie producer, Joe Roth, as a reason for signing up.

Last March of 2011, Sheen was officially removed from the hit series Two and a Half Men after a public declaration of verbal war with the producers and co-stars. On May 13, 2011, Warner Bros. Television announced that Sheen would be replaced by the hunky Ashton Kutcher.

No official date has been set for the TV debut but it would definitely be interesting if they slated it opposite Two and a Half Men schedule.
