Charlie Sheen is tweeting again

charlie-sheen-fists

Like a monarch returning to his golden palace after months of wandering in secret through his kingdom, Anger Management star and Estevez sibling Charlie Sheen has returned to Twitter. “It’s on” he exclaims, “My pop guest stars Thursday on Anger Management. Watch my dad show up as my dad 9:30p on FX. Best yet!!”

Sheen then links to an image of himself and father Martin Sheen sharing a laugh and a couple of beers on the set of Anger Management, no doubt playing the age-old Sheen family reunion game, “Who Starred In A Better Vietnam Movie?” (Emilio can’t play, despite his constant assertions that D2: The Mighty Ducks is secretly a Vietnam metaphor.)

PopWatch Planner: Matt LeBlanc, Charlie Sheen, and Louis C.K. return for more

I don’t want to alarm you, but 2012 is almost half over. Fireworks are right around the corner, and then school starts up again. Before you know it, the kids will be moving out of the house, and you’re screaming at the neighbor’s kid whose Whiffle ball keeps landing in your yard. All we are is dust in the wind, man. Fortunately, some reliable TV friends are back to hold our hands through the rest of the summer. Matt LeBlanc checks back in, as “Matt LeBlanc” on Episodes. Louis C.K.’s show returns to FX better than ever and Charlie Sheen’s Anger Management debuts the same night, bookending Wilfred to form the first-ever comedy block where no one who watches the first show watches the last and vice versa. And tonight, Aaron Sorkin dives back into television with the ambitious Newsroom, starring Jeff Daniels. So let’s try and enjoy this while we still can.

Sunday, June 24
The Newsroom premiere, HBO 10 p.m.

Aaron Sorkin’s new series about a cable news program has been so heavily anticipated, promoted, and analyzed that one almost feels pressured to have a definitive opinion about the show before it even premieres: Is it The West Wing or Studio 60? Tune in tonight to see whether it’s buzz or hype. You’ll be able to tell which by how the political Right and Left react on Monday morning. READ FULL STORY

Charlie Sheen says David Chappelle is the reason he got fired from 'Men'

As we await the premiere of Charlie Sheen’s new FX show Anger Management, his new Playboy interview will keep us entertained. The best part of writer Eric Spitznagel’s Q&A, in which the actor dissects his public meltdown at length, is arguably the part where Sheen explains why he really ended up in the hospital the January before he was fired from Two and a Half Men. It wasn’t after he’d spent days partying and doing drugs, as tabloids reported and his employers allegedly believed — it was because he laughed too hard at a Dave Chappelle sketch.

SHEEN: Remember that scene where he’s a blind white supremacist who doesn’t know he’s black? Have you seen it? It’s the funniest thing in the world. He becomes a Klansman, and he’s railing against black people. It’s insanely brilliant.

PLAYBOY: We’re familiar with it. “If anyone’s gonna have sex with my sister, it’s going to be me.”

SHEEN: Right. It’s f—ing hilarious. I’d never seen it, and I laughed myself into a hernia. That is 100 percent true.

PLAYBOY: So forget Chuck Lorre, forget Warner Bros. and CBS. It’s Dave ­Chappelle’s fault that you got fired?

SHEEN: It’s his fault. There you go. Dave Chappelle cost me my job.

Watch the sketch below. It’s possible? READ FULL STORY

Charlie Sheen: 'I was in total denial'

In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Charlie Sheen admitted that his whole “Winning” catchphrase last year wasn’t entirely accurate. “Clearly, a guy gets fired, his relationships are in the toilet, he’s off on some f—ing tour, there’s nothing ‘winning’ about any of that,” Sheen told the magazine. “I mean, how does a guy who’s obviously quicksanded, how does he consider any of it a victory? I was in total denial.”

The actor, who will next be seen in the FX comedy Anger Management, premiering June 28, also included his ex-wife Denise Richards (who will be making a guest-appearence on Anger Management) in the interview. “He and I are like best friends now. Confidants,” said Richards. “He tells me everything.” Although Sheen was quick to add, “We sleep in separate rooms.” READ FULL STORY
