Charlie Sheen to Star in TV Show Based on Anger Management

The reports were true: Charlie Sheen has landed himself a big role and ownership stake in new fittingly-named sitcom, Anger Management, produced by Lionsgate and based loosely on the 2003 film starring Jack Nicholson. "I chose Anger Management because, while it might be a big stretch for me to play a guy with serious anger management issues, I think it is a great concept," Sheen said in a statement. The tables have been turned since his angry rampage at New York’s Plaza Hotel – at least in Sheen’s latest TV role. He is to play the character of Nicholson’s shrink from the film.
