Charlie Sheen's TV comeback will be based on Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler comedy Anger Management, according to a U.S. report.
Sheen was fired from hit show Two and a Half Men after publicly falling out with producers earlier this year (11) - and now he's set to take Nicholson's womanising role as an anger specialist to the small screen.
Tmz.com reports this is the Joe Roth project Sheen alluded to during a chat with snappers on Tuesday (05Jul11). Roth owns the screenplay to the 2003 movie.
The website reports Sheen's character becomes a counsellor to defendants in the criminal justice system with anger management problems.
Roth worked with the actor on a number of movies, including Young Guns and The Three Musketeers.
