Note to jobseekers: appearing on Good Morning America insisting you’re a Vatican assassin warlock with Adonis DNA isn’t a great career move. This is something Charlie Sheen discovered when he was dropped from hit sitcom Two And A Half Men last March in favour of human washboard Ashton Kutcher.
Still, they do say a change is as good as a rest. In Charlie’s case, that change involved moving to a new show: a TV version of Adam Sandler’s 2003 film Anger Management, the Citizen Kane of bad films about people shouting at each other.
If you’re a fan of watching A-list stars publicly explode in a fireworks display of insanity, you’ll be very disappointed to hear Charlie’s performance in Anger Management is fine. Normal, even. He plays a psychologist, but at no point does he put a counselling session on hold to announce: “I am on a drug. It’s called Charlie Sheen. It’s not available because if you try it, you will die. Your face will melt off and your children will weep over your exploded body.”
That, or the series has a good editing team.
