Charlie Sheen Gets His First Post-Meltdown Movie Role

Despite the fact that he went way off the deep end, I guess Charlie Sheen will work in this town again after all.

First, it was announced that Sheen landed his own sitcom, based on the movie Anger Management. But that wasn’t just some lucky break, he’s also been cast in his first movie role since his very public meltdown.

Variety reports that the actor will star in the indie film A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charlie Swan III with Jason Schwartzman.

Does Charlie Sheen have trouble remembering his name or something? Because every character he plays is named Charlie. Is he worried that if he plays a character named Steve he’s going to forget who he is?

Roman Coppola, Schwartzman’s cousin, is set to direct the flick. The film’s plot chronicles a successful graphic designer who rises to fame, is surrounded by beautiful women, and makes tons of money. But he then falls into a quick downward spiral.

Hmmm. I liked it better when it was called Charlie Sheen: Spring 2011.

Sheen recently celebrated his 46th birthday over the Labor Day weekend, and had dinner with his ex-wife, Brooke Mueller, and their twin sons. The family went to Buca di Beppo, an Italian eatery in Los Angeles, to help ring in another year of complete insanity. Sheen Tweeted:

“Celebrated B-day at @bucadibeppo w/ the boys, Brooke & a bunch of family & friends. Huge portions, stellar staff. We will B back soon..!!!"

I wonder how much he got paid to eat there. His mom, Janet, and eldest daughter, Cassandra, were also present.

Denise Richards didn’t attend, but she did Tweet him birthday wishes. To which Sheen responded: "Love you and the girls..!!! Thanks for a great birthday dinner!! Great night! xo c”

So either she was secretly there, or Charlie Sheen has absolutely no idea what’s going on. I'm going with the latter.

He also birthday-Tweeted:

“EPIC year!! Thanks to all for the kind birthday wishes..!! xo c 46..!! 4+6=10 10x10=100..!! I'm gonna outlive you all..! #WINNING..!!!!”

Who can argue with that math?

Charlie Sheen’s Comedy Central Roast is coming up soon—September 19th, and the latest names added to the bill are Kate Walsh, William Shatner and Slash. An odd mixture, if you ask me, but the more the merrier, I guess. Mike Tyson and Steve-O are also guests.
