Charlie Sheen Will Return to TV in New Comedy, ‘Anger Management’
Charlie Sheen will be taking his winning ways back to the small screen in a TV version of the 2003 Jack Nicholson/Adam Sandler movie ‘Anger Management.’
On Thursday, FX ordered 10 episodes of the sitcom — which will have Sheen in Nicholson’s therapist role –on the condition that if the show achieves a certain rating level FX will be committed to buying 90 more episodes.
There’s no word when the show will premiere.
Sheen was famously fired from his last sitcom, ‘Two and a Half Men,’ after a series of bizarre public comments that included criticism of show’s creator Chuck Lorre.
Last month, Sheen settled a lawsuit against Warner Bros. over his dismissal from ‘Men’ that reportedly netted the 46-year old actor between $25 and $100 million.
