Charlie Sheen in Anger Management

Don’t the let the title of this post deceive you, the Tiger Blood pioneer isn’t getting treatment for his temper that led to those nasty little outbursts against Two and a Half Men show-runner Chuck Lorre that got him fired from the hit sitcom.

He is however returning to the world of the TV sitcom though with a project loosely based on the 2003 Adam Sandler/Jack Nicholson film of the same name, studio Lionsgate announced yesterday.

It had been widely rumoured that Sheen was close to agreeing a TV return with Joe Roth (head of Revolution Studios) with whom he has worked a number of times on films, including the likes of Young Guns so the news isn’t a complete shocker.

Sheen will reportedly have an ownership stake in the show which will hopefully keep him from mad-mouthing anyone associated with it, at least for a little while anyway.

In a surprising twist though Sheen will apparently be playing a take on Jack Nicholson’s character from the film, which would make him the Doctor rather than the patient as many would have expected.

The film character is certainly a little unorthodox in his methods though so Sheen should be a perfect fit for the role.
