Sheen

OFFICIALLY Announces

'Anger Management'

7/18/2011 10:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen has finally OFFICIALLY announced what TMZ told you last week ... that he's signed on to star in a new sitcom based on the movie "Anger Management."

Charlie Sheen New Show

The powers behind the show released a statement this morning describing the premise -- "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."

As TMZ first reported, Sheen will play the role of the therapist -- loosely based on Jack Nicholson's character in the movie "Anger Management."

In the statement, Sheen explains, "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's involvement in the series will also be more significant than in series past -- the actor adds, “[AM] 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.”

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

Roth says, “With Charlie’s incredible talent and comedic gifts, he remains the leading man of TV sitcoms. I’m excited to collaborate with him once again.”

The show -- distributed by DebMar-Mercury -- has not yet been picked up by a network.

His dissolute lifestyle and habits are showing. He looks terrible in the picture, from the texture of his skin to the eyes - he looks like he has two black eyes. This is one multi-addicted sick guy.

**yyaaaaawwwnnnn"....anyone who jumps on this bandwagon is a loser. Period. I wouldn't whizz on this lowlife if he was choking to death on sand in the Sahara desert.

Not to mention hiring a crackhead who's a disgrace to the Caucasian race after what he's pulled because 2 million morons followed him on twitter because I don't what other reason they came up with to do a series based on a movie that blew chunks up and down the aisle.

I was embarrassingly uncomfortable watching that dumb movie for Nicholson. What a lowpoint in his stellar career that thing was.. and I don't mind Sandler but he's run his course. The homo flick really ended it for me with that guy as far as paying for anything

That's not what you need Charlie. Call your old friend Rob and ask him where he went to clean up his act and get yourself together. If you won't do it for yourself, do it for your kids. Right now those kids need at least one parent with their head on right and if you don't do something now your poor kids will head down a path that will destroy them forever.

Charlie is a complete lunatic, but he was a great actor at one point in time and he was pretty funny on Two and a Half Men. The problem is that he got the laughs he got on that show because of his chemistry with the rest of the cast. If this show gets a decent supporting cast, I think it'll be great. I'll give it a shot, anyway.

Hopefully it won't be picked up by any network. And if it does is cancelled very quickly.
