| by Oh The Scandal

They say you you can’t keep a good one down. Same goes for tabloid chaser Charlie Sheen.

According to several reports, the former Two And A Half Men star is in talks for a TV comeback – based on Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler comedy Anger Management.

Sources tell TMZ that producer Joe Roth, who owns the rights to the film, is spearheading the project and is currently in negotiations with Lionsgate Television.

Sheen will reportedly play an ex-athlete who becomes a counselor to defendants in the criminal justice system with anger management problems. And yes, Sheen’s character will also have anger issues of his own.

TMZ reports a deal with Lionsgate is in the final stages of negotiations, but no deal with a network has yet been made.

Sheen told TMZ earlier this week: “I’m gonna be involved in every aspect of it.”

Roth has worked with Sheen on other projects, including Major League, Young Guns and Three Musketeers.
