Did you take your Advil today? It’s going to be intense between Charlie Sheen and Russell Brand, but we also have a new Australian import called LEGIT to check out. Let’s just rip the band-aid off with Charlie Sheen and his newest show where he plays himself ANGER MANAGEMENT.
8:34 AM: Anger Management is doing so well they are already talking “Back 90.” Yeah, you read that right. Also, Martin Sheen will likely join the cast as a series regular
9:11 AM: Bringing out the cast members one bumbling Charlie Sheen and tiny woman at a time
9:13 AM: This is the type of show my father would lose his mind over. I guess FX is hoping for the older CBS set
9:14 AM: Charlie Sheen says that hearing “back 90″ after only 8 episodes doesn’t worry him. Also doesn’t “think 90 is going to be enough”
9:15 AM: He cannot sit still
9:15 AM: “He was a regular dad, except he took us all over the world making movies”
9:16 AM: He keeps asking people to tell him what the questions are. He’s not a particularly great listener
9:17 AM: It feels like everyone on stage came out on the defensive. Afraid we might bite, it seems
9:19 AM: Creator, Bruce Hellford, says there is no rehearsal for the series. The actors get their lines and go. That explains it, then
9:20 AM: Is it just me, or does having Martin Sheen on this series feel like he’s Charlie’s conservator? Like Britney’s dad
9:23 AM: Charlie squirmed so much that his mic fell off.
9:23 AM: “It was like a dream I couldn’t wake up from” — Charlie. THIS FEELS LIKE SOMETHING I CAN’T WAKE UP FROM
9:25 AM: “Life’s pretty great now that I’m not insane anymore” He also said “winning” because, yeah
9:25 AM: Hellford just said Charlie didn’t have any creative control on TWO AND A HALF MEN? REALLY??? So you’re saying it was just a caricature?
9:27 AM: Hellford keeps saying the shooting schedule is so crazed because it’s financially responsible. It sounds more like a soap opera set than a primetime set. He said after time it’ll become more polished
9:29 AM: Selma Blair, on the other hand, is super charming and I am happy she has a job. Even if it’s on this trainwrecky sounding show
9:31 AM: Just so we all know, when Selma Blair took Charlie’s hand and put it over her belly, she was kidding.
9:32 AM: A little more meat: Hellford says that this show is about “flawed people.” But there is a good man in there. There will always be a satisfying end for each episode. Trying to comment on the human condition
9:34 AM: This show is basically Charlies Harem. Keep them in heels so they don’t run away
9:36 AM: Charlie Sheen and Bristol Palin have something in common, they both wish they could have a quiet life, but it would never happen…
