Charlie Sheen, in all of his bizarre glory, will grace our television screens for yet another interview this week, this time on ABCâ€™s 20/20. The sit-down is scheduled for Tuesday night at 10/9c.
After watching his relatively incoherent chat with â€˜Todayâ€™ this week, Iâ€™m beginning to wonder if he ever acted a day in his life. Was it a character he was portraying in Hot Shots, or was it simply just him?
Mondayâ€™s interview, which will function as a precursor for the ABC special, was strangely intriguing. A clearly miffed Charlie spat out the twisted logic that he felt entitles him to more money and, well, more power.
Rather than being stuck pretending he isnâ€™t a â€˜rock star from mars,â€™ this â€˜specialâ€™ actor feels that he should be paid 33% more an episodeâ€”â€˜take it or leave it.â€™
Oh, and you can put down your calculators, it comes out to about $3 million a show.
Honestly folks, Iâ€™ve never even seen his show. I grew up watching him do a half dozen or so decent movies, but I never felt that he was Godâ€™s answer to the comedic actor.
Itâ€™s fair to say that 20/20 is a tad more serious than â€˜Today.â€™ One is known for its award winning journalism, and the other, well, the former host of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. That begs the question: will the folks at ABC challenge him more?
Iâ€™d say itâ€™s a possibility. The most serious question posed by â€˜Todayâ€™ was whether or not he ever showed up on the set of â€˜Menâ€™ high or drunk. I think those of us who are following the story are thirsty for a little more.
As soon as it is posted online, Iâ€™ll embed the Charlie Sheen 20/20 video. Until then, you can pore over the gem from â€˜Today.â€™
