Charlie Sheen

Listen to Me, Judge ...

I Know Anger Management!

Charlie Sheen may hate the producer of "Two and a Half Men," but he clearly loves the producer of his new show, because Charlie has jumped to his defense in a nasty lawsuit.

The lawsuit was filed by a guy named Jason Shuman, who claims mega-producer Joe Roth double-crossed him by cutting him out of the profits for the show. Shuman says he's responsible for turning "Anger Management" into the TV version of the famous movie.  He wants more than $50 million.

In a declaration filed by Charlie and obtained by TMZ ... the actor says he was involved in the "Anger Management" TV show from the get go, and at no time did he ever meet with, speak with or even hear of Jason Shuman.

Charlie also gives us a peek into the way the show got developed. He says he jumped at the suggestion that "Anger Management" be made into a TV show, because "there had been a lot of publicity over the preceding few months as to whether I might have my own 'anger management' issues."

Charlie goes on in his declaration ... "The irony of my portraying an anger management therapist (as opposed to an anger management patient) appealed to me."

And, he says, "I also thought that my recent association with anger management situations would appeal to a television audience."

The show seems like two entities.
There's the group therapy scenes, which can be funny with the unique characters.
And then there's the relationship with Selma Blair, which I find completely boring and usually end up fast forwarding through.

My comment is not really regarding this, as I am not in the bizz and not involved.....but I gotta say Charlie.....this winning warlock, has certainly won my heart over lately. The check for the policemans sick daughter, the money he donated for an aid dog for another seriously ill woman, an even the money he donated for the paparazzis funeral. Way to go Charlie! It's so nice to hear that someone who has the means steps up and helps, as I only wish I could. You are truly winning in my book. I happen to think the donations to the Lindsey charity case you've made lately are probably a waste.....and weren't appreciated properly. But hey....what do I know! Love to you Charlie

Why do I like this guy? It makes no sense. Maybe I make excuses for him because he's obviously mental at times. And yes he likes porn and hookers. Dang it sounds bad I know. But I keep thinking of the first time I saw Major League. Charlie gave me such pleasure with his portrayal of that pitcher. Forget it. Makes no sense and he will probably go off again but I like Charlie Sheen.
