Glazer: Scribe Tips His Hat to Charlie Sheen’s Comeback

Less than a year ago actor Charlie Sheen was written off by most of America…

He was a druggie, slut crazy and on and on. And you know what? He was. I wrote a couple of stories in his defense. Why? Because I think a man who has achieved what Sheen has deserves a second, third and fourth look. When you have been a major film and TV star for most of your life m- in Sheen’s case 30 years or more – you can get bored.

Hey, I wish I could speak from that kind of success and experience.

Sheen was a classic case of “I need more.”

With monster hit films like PLATOON and WALL STREET, this guy just never stopped hitting the ball out of the park. Sure he had some failures, all entertainers do. But his wins were MASSIVE.

Charlie Sheen was the highest paid actor in television.

His hit TV show Two and a Half Men was number one for several years. The guy was making more than $20 million a season, plus, plus. And don’t forget those replay checks.

We all know about his fall from grace.

Drugs, fights with his wife, fights with his “goddesses,” saying crazy things like “Tiger Blood” and “Adonis DNA.”

Yep the guy was a bit over the edge.

All of that led to his firing from the TV series. And most people thought, “Its just a matter of days, weeks, months before we read: “Charlie Sheen found dead in his hotel: Apparent Overdose.”

Well, that never happened.

Yes, he did the silly comedy/talk tour, but then something strange happened. He wanted to show the world, his family even you and me, that he could COMEBACK…and fast.

Today Sheen looks pretty damn good. He even fixed his teeth. Just short of 50, the guy has a number one TV show, Anger Management, on cable’s FX channel.

In just one month it’s THE ALL TIME NUMBER ONE CABLE TV SERIES with viewership of over 5 million per show. Charlie plays an ex-baseball player turned psychologist. Hmmm, must have been his idea. The show is funny. Sheen is on target, smooth and appears rested.

Is he totally straight? No more dope?

Well, let’s say that clearly he has at least cut way back, if not totally gone clean. At least with the hard stuff.

He was on Jimmy Kimmel last week and knocked it out of the park.

Kimmel: “So are the goddesses at your home?”

Sheen: “Oh no, just my kids, family, dad visits, no time or room for goddesses.”

Kimmel: “So who is the new girlfriend?”

Sheen: “Nobody right now, I’m mending fences with my Dad, my ex wife and well it’s great to just be normal with the family. I’m liking all this.”

Charlie was like Mr. America and America loves comebacks.

And don’t forget his Fiat spot still runs, Hearne loves that.

For now Charlie is winning and I’m betting on this guy. I can’t say he won’t screw up here and there, but he’s a sharp, educated man who just got too much, too early.

Now maybe he can deal with it all. Now maybe he can WIN.

    He is an F-16 fighter jet that runs on synthesized tiger blood, he cannot be taken down like mere mortals. Warlock on man.

  2. Rick Nichols says:

    I think Mr. Sheen’s “comeback” says less about his positive attributes, few as they are, and more about America’s screwed-up values and priorities than anything else.

    I was in this movie if you know what I mean,
    When out of the jungle came ol’ Charlie Sheen –
    “I’m back! I’m back!” he yells. “Dig this crazy scene.”
    Then my alarm went off … thank God it was only a dream!

      I can see your point…but he has his…too much free time and money on his hands…I get it…but he could have been a little less whacked about it, sure.

    Somebody needs to go Sirhan-Sirhan on this punk!

  4. Craig Glazer says:

    I agree Cliffy needs to go!!!!!

  5. balbonis moleskine says:

    I disagree Glazer, I thought he looked a bit coked out on Kimmel. That was a guy who did a few rails instead of the back end of an 8ball before he went on though (everything in moderation).

    The Anger Management show is funny, he is essentially playing himself. He is in the new machete movie essentially playing himself. Time will tell if he goes back to taking challenging roles or if he continues with the parody roles.

    I can’t help but root for the guy. He’s talented, he’s gone great stuff. 2.5 men would have been cancelled in a year if it wasn’t for him. His crime in Hollywood was that he really liked cocaine and half naked bimbos. As Hollywood crimes go, a class C misdemeanor punishable by a stay in Promises Malibu.

  6. Craig Glazer says:

    Well either way he did a great job…and hey as far as playing himself, at 50 thats fine..I think you’d agree had Wall Street Money Never Sleeps(2) been centered on Douglas and Sheen instead of the Shiloooooo….guy, much, much better movie…so yeah Sheen needs to do a serious film at some point…I think he will…maybe he’s Woodbeck in King of Sting..nah,,,,,well something.
