Charlie Sheen's New TV Show

'Anger Management'

7/6/2011 10:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

0706_charlie_jack_EX2

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."

Only an absolute idiot would hire this guy.

Anyone not requiring him to sign a contract like this, deserves to get screwed.

Agreed.

Still waiting to have actual confirmation of any new shows before I believe it.

I want to know just WHAT talent people seem to think that Sheen has... EVERY role he's played short of Platoon has been a copy of himself. The guy can't act at all. He can only play himself....

~~~~~~~~

Which is why a spin off of "Anger Management" WOULD make the "most sense" (to quote Charlie) if it were true.

I LOVE Nancy Grace...she is speaking for Caylee... someone who cannot speak! I believe Casey is GUILTY! I am also a mother of a 3 year old and I couldn't go 31 days without calling the police... dysfunctional family or not! Thanks to Cindy because Casey would of never called the police! I don't blame the Pros because they had limited evidence because they did not find Caylee in August but in December. Not calling the police for 31 days is neglect to me she should of got some kind of jail time.

I would love to see Charlie Sheen as an Anger Management Counsellor....he could use all of his issues with his "people" and how everybody "wants to be", or "do", or "do-over" Charlie Sheen to draw on.

I would watch it.
