Charlie Sheen may have landed himself a new sitcom!

According to TMZ, the former “Two and Half Men” actor has been hired on to star in a TV show called “Anger Management,” based off the 2003 movie of the same name. Charlie’s character will be the role Jack Nicholson played in the film.

Sources directly involved in the project say the man who is making it all happen is uber-producer Joe Roth, who produced and owns the screenplay to the 2003 movie, “Anger Management.”

We’re told Charlie’s character will stray a bit from the movie role.  The plan as of now — Charlie’s character will be an ex-jock who got his master’s degree in social work during the offseason.  He becomes a counselor to defendants in the criminal justice system with anger management problems.  But, of course, Charlie’s character will have anger issues of his own.

We’re told the deal with Lionsgate is not done, but is in the final stages of negotiations.  And we’re told, there is no deal with a network to air the show — at least not yet.

Roth has worked with Charlie on 5 projects, including “Major League,” “Young Guns” and “Three Musketeers.”

Can’t wait to see how this turns out…..just from the title we have a feeling it will work it out perfectly for Charlie!
