Charlie Sheen's New TV Show

Charlie Sheen's new TV show will be based on the movie "Anger Management"and Charlie will be playing the Jack Nicholson character ... TMZ has learned.

Sources directly involved in the project say the man who is making it all happen is uber-producer Joe Roth, who produced and owns the screenplay to the 2003 movie, "Anger Management."

We're told Charlie's character will stray a bit from the movie role.  The plan as of now -- Charlie's character will be an ex-jock who got his master's degree in social work during the offseason.  He becomes a counselor to defendants in the criminal justice system with anger management problems.  But, of course, Charlie's character will have anger issues of his own.

We're told the deal with Lionsgate is not done, but is in the final stages of negotiations.  And we're told, there is no deal with a network to air the show -- at least not yet.

Roth has worked with Charlie on 5 projects, including "Major League," "Young Guns" and "Three Musketeers."

Charlie Sheen's success in his former tv role was the result of his character being charming, self-centered, irresponsible, unbelievably lucky and always landing on his feet, which somehow made him vulnerable. Charlie's new character as a responsible person in a leadership position destroys his vulnerability and isn't funny. In all of his acting roles, it is Charlie's skill and ****iness combined with vulnerability that makes him so attractive.

anger management..

poor job of casting.....i have not seen the bob newhart show in 35 years, but i can still remember the characters...i saw anger management last night but cant remember the cast. they are not interesting and therefore not memorable. all you can hear in the show is the laugh track, because it so out of place. the lines are simply not funny.
during the show they abruptly go to a scene were charlie is in a session with some prisoners, the characters were simple , interesting and memorable, and these were the only funny lines in the show. charlies character is so complex we dont know who he is and lose interest. every good comedy has an idiot..luther van damn, ray barrone,
ect...were is this shows clown..recast and get some writers. do i have to do everything ?
