It sounds like things are in motion to get Charlie Sheen back to the small screen.
Last week, Radar Online reported that the actor had inked a deal with Lionsgate for a new sitcom in which the lead character would be much like "Two and a Half Men's" naughty playboy Charlie Harper.
Today, sources told TMZ that the rumored new show will be based on the 2003 Adam Sandler and Jack Nicholson film "Anger Management." But instead of "Men's" Charlie Harper, Sheen's character will be more like Nicholson's character, therapist Buddy Rydell. Sources told the gossip site that the role won't be exactly like the film's, but that Sheen's character will be a former jock who helps defendants in the criminal justice system with their anger management issues. Sheen's character will also reportedly have anger issues of his own to deal with.
TMZ also reports that the Lionsgate deal is not finished, as Radar had reported, but that it's in final negotiations. A deal has not been made with any network yet either, according to the site.
Yesterday, the actor dropped a few hints to cameras about his new show. When the cameraman asked him for the initials of the movie the show would be based on, Sheen said, "A M." (The video is available on TMZ.)
Is "Anger Management" a good move for Sheen's new show and character to be based on? Or is there another you think would be a better fit? Share your thoughts on our Facebook page!
