Charlie Sheen in talks for ‘Anger Management’ sitcom

Washington: Charlie Sheen, who was axed from hit show ‘Two and a Half Men’ earlier this year - is in negotiations to appear on a new show based on the 2003 movie ‘Anger Management.’

The man who is making it all happen is uber-producer Joe Roth.

If cast, Sheen would play Jack Nicholson’s character, but will stray a bit from the movie role, reports TMZ.com.

As of now, Charlie’s character will be an ex-jock who got his master’s degree in social work during the offseason.

He becomes a counsellor to defendants in the criminal justice system with anger management problems.

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