Charlie Sheen is quite happy with his decision to join the FX family for his new series Anger Management. But, it sounds like he’s still harboring a little resentment for the fact that he was let go from Two and a Half Men after his wild stunts in 2011.
“It’s smarter,” Sheen described his new show to Hollywood.com at the FX Upfronts at Lucky Strike Lanes in NYC on March 29.
While Sheen has spent the past few days again apologizing for last year’s madness, it truly does seem like he’s a changed man based on the way he behaved at the FX event. “Charlie spent about two hours chatting with fans and signing autographs,” a witness describes. “He looked good and was super friendly.”
According to the witness, Sheen wasn’t Sheening it this time. “He didn’t touch a drink all night,” the witness says. “He seemed happy to be focusing on promoting his new show.”
“He appears to have calmed down a lot,” adds the witness. “He wasn’t even concerned about flirting with any of the young, attractive women around him.”
And his new co-stars are thrilled to be working with him. “Charlie’s like Michael Jordan in television,” Shawnee Smith said to us. “Working with him has not [been] disappointing. We have a ball. He’s great. He’s warm and funny as hell, a real team player. It’s great.”
Daniela Bobadilla wasn’t nervous to sign on with Charlie. “I actually got to meet him in my audition and he was the nicest, most giving actor,” she shares.
“He’s a legend,” adds Noureen DeWulf. “He’s great. His personality is so big. I like his work. I was excited.”
Maybe Sheen just needed a dose of his supportive Anger Management team to help him get back on track. Anger Management premieres on FX June 28. Are you excited?
