Charlie Sheen To Star In Roman Coppola's A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charlie Swan III
It was only a couple months ago that Charlie Sheen was making daily headlines with his outrageous behavior and ridiculous comments about things like "Tiger blood." His actions and attitude led to him being fired from Two and a Half Men, one of the highest rated shows on television, and everyone assumed that his acting career was over. Recently, however, the actor has actually managed to rebound, now set to star in a sitcom based on the Adam Sandler comedy Anger Management and now Roman Coppola is going to bring him back to the big screen.
The filmmaker has hired Sheen to play the title character in his newest film, A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charlie Swan III, according to Variety. In the project, which will also star Jason Schwartzman, Sheen will be a world-famous graphic designer who has everything he could want. But when his girlfriend breaks up with him, he is unable to take the rejection and his life goes into a tailspin. While Sheen had cameos in two film's last year - Todd Phillips' Due Date and Oliver Stone's Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps - the last time he had a major role in a film was the 2004 Elmore Leonard adaptation The Big Bounce.
For some reason I don't think it will be too much of a challenge for Sheen to play a guy whose career is quickly headed down the toilet. The real question now is whether Sheen is merely a caricature or if he actually still has the skills that made him a star in the first place.
