Charlie Sheen: From ‘Anger Management’ to Rodriguez ‘Machete Kills’ President

Some still think that Charlie Sheen made a big mistake when he went on a rampage against the Two and a Half Men producers, which ostensibly led to the show’s downfall when Ashton Kutcher was cast as his replacement.

However, Sheen’s Tiger Blood has only gained momentum since he left the CBS. Not only will Sheen debut his new FX series Anger Management at the end of June, but he’s also been cast in as president in Robert Rodriguez’s Machete Kills, a sequel to the Grindhouse movie which starred Danny Trejo and Michelle Rodriguez.

This is a great step forward for Sheen, who’s feature film career has been on hiatus for nearly a decade. Outside Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps and a few Scary Movie appearances, Sheen’s career switched from film to TV when he starred in Spin City.

Rodriguez announced the news via Twitter: “I just cast Charlie Sheen in #machetekills as the President of the United States! Who better? More soon…”

Sheen retweeted the news boisterously with the heading: “My Fellow Americans!”

Jessica Alba will return to the film, which has also cast Mel Gibson, Zoe Saldana and Amber Heard.

Gibson, also noted for media outbursts, will appear as an eccentric billionaire who echoes Lex Luthor in the first Superman movie – he’s got a missile that he’s just itching to launch.
