Who’s Crazy Enough For Sheen?

Seems Charlie Sheen’s new sitcom project is beginning to take shape: He’s apparently teaming with movie producer Joe Roth and Lionsgate to shop a TV-sized version of the 2003 Adam Sandler film “Anger Management,” says TMZ and others (Lionsgate still says no deal, by the way). The duo are hunting for a showrunner willing to get into the tiger’s den with Sheen. Deadline wondered who would be desperate enough to join a Sheen project, but there’s always somebody, right? (It’s worth doing just for the lifetime’s supply of party anecdotes you’d acquire from the gig.) But what about the rumored pitch itself — Charlie Sheen in “Anger Management” sitcom? Could that find a network home?
