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."

Anyone putting a dime in this crack addict's pockets are as sick as anyone who would put a dime in Casey Anthony's pockets for a movie no one needs to see nor hear because we watched it all in real life and know who the killer is.

She makes a dime and he gets payed off for his sickening behavior this country has lost it's bearings so badly it may never recover. The MSM are nothing more than that lowlife attorney, all the Devil's Advocates.

They're sick and people not on here telling them that each day are sad tools of the machine.

I mean their is a chance there isnt a show, but I kind of feel their is prob a show because he said who was going to be the producer and it's based on anger management it would be pretty random if he just made up Joe roth was the producer and it's based on anger management did he just pick those two out of a hat are something. haha

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.

That nancy grace who you love has made some nasty comments about people being guility with no evidence or proof to back it up. She made nasty comments on Richard Ricci who turned out to be innocent, and the duke lacrosse players. She even made someone commit suicide one day after she interviewed them and choose to show the interview the next day and she didnt feel any remorse. for what she did and never apologizes for being wrong. She also embellished the murder of her fiance to boost her image she is a sick person, she doesnt care about the victims only being on tv and making money.

How can you people say he's looking good?

******************

Uhmmmmm...Because it's what we think??? Got a problem with the opinions? 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.

**********

He has GOLDEN teeth. How does that equal having BAD teeth? And I am not the kind of person who thinks that people looking 60 are not attractive.
