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."

For everything else he is (or you THINK he is) Charlie is a painfully honest guy.

I buy his version.

I love Charlie, but his show sucks. He was Two and a Half Men and now that show is unwatchable. Do more movies Charlie! You're incredibly talented and awesome!

I normally don't like drug abuser . they are impulsive and uncontralable but Charlie really owns it .
He even gave his dad a job on his show . I hope his kids see the charity side of him and less of the wild side . he can't be that bad of a dad he keeps them out of the media and is not selling them out like Kris karadshian sold her kids for porn and will sell her grand kids when her kids are not interessting anymore
