Now, Charlie Sheen can officially say he’s “winning.” Cable network FX has bought the rights to air the former “Two and a Half Men” star’s new series, a TV version of the 2003 Adam Sandler/Jack Nicholson film, “Anger Management.” Sheen will play the Nicholson role in the show, an infuriating therapist who draws the rage out of his patients. The series initially being optioned for ten episodes, with the option to buy 90 more if it’s successful. Sheen has had quite a year; last winter, he got himself booted off his number one rated CBS sitcom after a rash of bizarre behavior that included drug romps, dropping big cash on a bevy of prostitutes and a series of rants against the network and “Two and a Half Men” creator Chuck Lorre. After sobering up, he announced that he’d star in the new series back in July, with Lionsgate producing the spec show.
