First Promo: Charlie Sheen in FX’s ‘Anger Management’ | EW
Deadline reports that cable nets FX, USA, Comedy Central or TV Land as well as Netflix are interesting in Sheen’s new show.
Not that strange until you find out that Sheen is going to play the straight man of the series, “a mild-mannered, non-confrontational man is ordered to attend group anger management sessions led by a therapist who could probably use some anger management himself.”
“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,” Sheen said in a statement. “It also provides me with real ownership in the series, a certain amount of creative control and the chance to be back in business with one of my favorite movie producers of all time, Joe Roth.”
