Charlie Sheen is commonly known as as a stereotypical Hollywood star - neurotic beyond bounds, but loved by many. Mostly in particular this is because of his work on one of the longest running and most well-liked TV comedy shows on Primetime Tv, "Two and A Half Men", where he played a sex-and-alcohol-fueled jingle writer living the bachelor way of life.
Two and a Half Men became one of America's favorite all-time comedies, and went on to become hailed by the New York Times as "the greatest comedy show of the last decade".
Two and a Half Men's good streak on Primetime however, was cut short after 9 seasons, generally because of Sheen's addictions. Charlie sunk down into the grasp of drug dependence, and publicly lambasted the show's creator, Chuck Lorre. Sheen's personal issues and vendetta with the show's maker turned out to be the last stake in Sheen's job with Two and a Half Men. The fight in between Sheen and Lorre climbed to new proportions, as well as Sheen's destructive habits, and Sheen was let go, his character swapped out, and Sheen looking like a total train wreck to the public media with his ongoing drug rehabilitation and civic bitterness towards anyone involved.
For a long time, it really seemed like Sheen's career looked like a dead boat in the water, as the controversy flared. Sheen continued to fight his former peers in litigation, freely lambast his old group, and typically seem upset and sour towards everybody involved.
But just as all was lost, Sheen gained an deal to act in very own comedy - Anger Management. Anger Management turned out to be pretty much everything that Two and a Half Men ever seemed to be, just devoid of his old co-stars. Charlie still played a persona who was pretty much a reflection of the real life Sheen (still a hedonist and a chick boy), who nevertheless being prone to fits of fury, became a counselor. Sheen handles a group of dysfunctional yet entertaining group of folks who have emotional problems, which Sheen tries to sort out.
If one assumed that Anger Managemernt would be just as comical as the original show, one would certainly be correct. The people backing the program desired to observe the the show's effect on network ratings, ahead of constructing any new commitments about season renewal.
But for all of us devotees of Charlie Sheen around the world, there is hope at the end of the tunnel. Anger Management in its 1st season has obtained an average viewing of 4.5 million viewers and has just been given an extension for 90 more episodes , which suggests that it will we will be having more and more Sheen for years to come. With any luck this instance he will suppress his drug addiction long enough to outlast Two and a Half Men.
Anger Management stars Sheen, Selma Blair, Shawnee Smith, Brett Butler, Michael Arden, Noureen DeWulf, and Derek Richardson, and there will doubtlessly be quite a few guest appearances by other famous actors and actresses, as the show progresses. In later episodes, Martin Sheen takes on the role of Charlie's father, and Denise Richards has already guest starred in it.
