Charlie Sheen Joins Charlie Swan
Joins Roman Coppola's next film

Charlie Sheen Joins Charlie Swan

The insurers have presumably signed off on it, and Charlie Sheen is headed back to Hollywood proper after signing on to star in Roman Coppola's A Glimpse Inside The Mind Of Charlie Swan III. Jason Schwartzman will also be appearing, although his role has not yet been announced.

The story focuses on a successful graphic designer whose life takes a nosedive when his girlfriend leaves him. Apparently he has "fame, money and charm", the first of which seems unlikely for most graphic designers, but we'll let it slide.

In any case, Sheen should be able to empathise with parts of the script, and we can only applaud any effort he makes to get back on track. He's also apparently headed back to TV with a planned show based on Anger Management, so he may not be absent from our screens for that long in the end, despite that whole messy business earlier this year.

Must be the tiger blood.

Fame, money and charm! I know plenty of designers. All of which have the last trait in abundance. As for fame and money, oh dear... Hollywood sh*ts up another profession in the interest of creating a story. What next, a world-reknowned shop keeper? A high-flying bank cashier? An international playboy decorator? Anyway, know cares, it'll tank... it's got (line-of-)Charlie Sheen in it. More
