Don't all put your hands up at once! LOLz!
The rumors are indeed true - Charlie Sheen is returning to television. As we reported earlier, Charlie's poised to take the lead role in the TV adaption of the Jack Nicholson flick, Anger Management, with Adam Sandler. The show's already got a producer in place to get the ball rolling, but what they really need is a solid, sturdy executive producer and showrunner, someone who is unafraid to deal with his shenanigans.
As the showrunner, the person chosen will have to not only put up with Charlie, but also pen the pilot script and oversee the hiring of the production crew. It's a big job for sure, one so many people would jump at the chance for … except perhaps people who have worked with Charlie before. If they can find someone by the end of the year, you can expect to see the MaSheen back on the little screen by fall 2012.
Lord, have mercy on the poor souls who get roped into that gig!
