Charlie Sheen

Goes After 'Men' in

'Anger Management' Debut

6/29/2012 7:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



0629_sheen_angerCharlie Sheen wasted no time attacking his former show during the premiere of "Anger Management" last night ... taking some not-so-veiled shots at "Two and a Half Men" during the opening scene.

The very first scene of "Management" opens on a tight shot of Charlie (playing a character named Charlie) while he's on an angry rant ... saying, "YOU CAN'T FIRE ME, I QUIT!! You want to replace me with some other guy? Go ahead! It won't be the same!" 

He adds, "You think I'm losing! I'm not! I'm ... anyway, you get the idea."

When the camera pulls out, it reveals Charlie is only taking out his anger on an inflatable punching bag named BoBo ... while teaching his group therapy class about an anger management technique.

Not very subtle ...

Fun Fact -- the show debuted last night on FX ... right after an episode of "Men."

Charlie's former role in Two and Half Men was successful because his character was charming, self-centered, irresponsible, unbelievably lucky/ always landing on his feet and somehow vulnerable. In his previous acting roles, it is his skill and ****iness coupled with vulnerability which made him so attractive. His new character as a responsible person in a leadership role destroys his vulnerability and isn't funny. . The show would be funnier if Charlie were the patient recounting his past experiences. A successful, troubled Charlie is funny.

OBSERVER    

"Charlie Sheen Donates $1 Million to Troops."

He will donate 1 percent of the profits from earnings from his new series "Anger Management," with a minimum of $1 million and an unlimited cap.

This means that the more money Sheen makes, the more he will give to the USO.


Really Charlie!? This wouldn't be to boost your declining ratings would it . . .

Enjoyed seeing Charlie again...but too many characters and C.Sheen nor C.Harper would ever date or F#@k a fat girl. Improve the story line --Charlie needs to hire a couple of his old writers at two & ahalf.
Will watch again, but don't let it go down the tubes like the new Ahston Kretcher show.
Good Luck.
