Charlie Sheen will star in Anger Management on FX this summer.
In promotion for the sitcom, the network has been using photos of the actor from his most recent gig, Two and a Half Men, a move that resulted this week in a cease and desist letter from CBS, which is demanding Sheen and his production company stop illegally profiting from its images.
To this, Sheen has a simple response: GOOD!
"I'm thrilled," the actor tells TMZ, in a way only he can. "It insulates me from having to redundantly see myself in the idiotic bowling shirt. Perhaps if Warner Bros. spent as much time and energy focusing on THEIR show, it wouldn't be such a steaming pile of ass."
Hmmm... we wonder how he really feels about his former series.
UPDATE: A bit later in the day, Sheen called TMZ and said of the man who replaced him:
I'm tired of pretending the show doesn't suck ... I'm tired of pretending Ashton doesn't suck. It's nothing personal ... I just feel bad for him ... he's saddled with such bad writing.
