Now that he’s been fired from “Two and a Half Men,” Charlie Sheen is looking for ways to occupy his time.
And the “Hot Shots” stud has scored a gig on Drew Carey’s upcoming “Improv-A-Ganza,” to be aired on the Game Show Network.
The program will be a primetime daily strip series to be shot before a live studio audience at the MGM Grand in Sin City.
Sheen’s episode was actually taped back in January and will air on April 12th. And who knows, if things go well, maybe he’ll be invited back.
Carey’s new improv comedy show premieres on April 11th.
This past Monday (March 28th) Charlie Sheen’s legal team went to court with the hope of speeding up a sometimes lengthy process.
The troubled actor’s lead attorney, Marty Singer, headed into the courtroom and asked Judge Goodman for an order to shorten the usual time it takes to reach a decision.
As previously reported, Sheen filed a public $100 million lawsuit against Warner Bros and “Two and a Half Men” co-creator, Chuck Lorre, over his firing from the CBS sitcom – with Charlie making it clear that he wants it to be a public trial.
While WB and Lorre prefer a more detailed, private battle, Judge Goodman granted Singer his request and moved up the hearing date to April 19 (the original date was May 25).
The same day that his legal team went to court for him, Charlie Sheen was busy taking his ranting ways in the direction of ex-wife Denise Richards .
The “Wall Street” actor took to his Twitter page to post a hateful message to the “Wild Things” actress, writing, “We must bombard with Warlock Napalm, that traitor and loser whore #DUH-neese POOR-ards, a vile kidnapper and now dog thief. hate. SBW c.”
Apparently the dispute is over one of Denise’s pugs; She let Charlie have two of her pugs so the kids could play with them, but one died of malnutrition so she took the other one back.
Now Charlie wants the dog to take with him as a mascot on his “Violent Torpedo of Truth” tour bus.
Speaking of his tour, there’s recently been speculation that Sheen’s new venture isn’t as in-demand as it seems.
According to a report, the former “Two and a Half Men” star has been claiming that the tickets are selling like hotcakes, though investors and scalpers are having to sell them at less than face value.
The gig is said to be anywhere between 70 and 90 minutes of spoken word, ranting, and whatever other craziness Charlie conjures up.
If all goes according to plan, Sheen is said to be looking at a $7 million payday from the combined revenues of all 21 gigs.
