Charlie Sheen's New TV Show

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.

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."

Can't be any worse than the movie.
I remember the old days when Adam Sandler films were funny. Anger Management was awful. He hasn't made a funny movie since The Wedding Singer.

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....

umm lets see here what about wall street, Major leauge, men at work, Hot shoots,young guns,Three musketeers and many manyyyy more. He has only played him self in pretty much only two and a half men and spin city. The man took over for the great MJ Fox. The mans got talent you dont get to be one of the highest paid actors on tv without any talent.

Yes, I would watch Charlie Sheen in Anger Management. Hopefully he has learned from his mistakes in his personal life and will do
well in a new show. He does have talent and perhaps he can pull his self together like Robert Downey, Jr. has. I wish Charlie well, but if he screws up again, I'll probably stop watching his
shows.

BBrown...I will not believe anything TMZ says until something is really proven. The fact that Charlie gave a few hints is a start, but still he cvould have been misleading those jokes of the reporters.
I am just happy that he looks clean and healthy.

I won'*****ch ANYTHING with this whack job in it, not a thing! That's assuming there is even a deal penned with a network and I'd really be surprised if any network would touch a show with him in it now.

I'm sure his career will do as well as Mel Gibson's. lol It'd be easier to just not do another show then face the hard reality when it's cancelled after the 3rd episode. The embarrassment will only lead to a bender and then an obituary. Fix your life, Charlie, no one wants to see your stupid attempt at career revival when you've done nothing to deserve a come back.

Sounds like the perfect vehicle for Charlie to re-enter comedic television and it'll once again be parodying his own lifestyle to a degree, which was part of the huge success behind TAHM.

It's going to be huge Caroline, HUGE!!! lol

No, I don't have a problem with opinions. I just stated mine. Honestly can't understand why anyone would find a 47 year old who looks 60 with bad teeth good looking. It's kinda sad that the only way he can find love is by paying for it.
