Loosely based on the 2003 Adam Sandler/Jack Nicholson film, news of Sheen’s involvement in this TV adaptation came over the summer after his hit-and-miss Violent Torpedo of Truth live tour which he embarked on after being fired from Two and a Half Men in March. Busy year!

Production on Anger Management will start early next year and so far FX have bought ten episodes of the series which sees Sheen playing their interpretation of Nicholson’s role as the anger management therapist who has ‘questionable’ methods of treatment. I wonder if prostitutes and tiger blood will have any involvement...
Last night Sheen tweeted his excitement with: ‘#AngerManagement Summer 2012... FX here we come!!’ and Newsbeat writes that FX Networks president John Landgraf said the show is a ‘wonderful, hilarious vehicle for Charlie’s acting talents, and a character we are very much looking forward to seeing him play.’
