The Australia-based What's Playing has a new post by their "London Insider" stating that Mr. Sheen isn't only rumored for a film called 'Guns of the Dead,' but has two more features on his plate. They claim the actor will spend his next television hiatus this summer filming 'Major League 4' with Tom Berenger, and in more high-profile news, play "a washed-up-but-useful CIA type" who chases Bruce Willis in 'The Expendables 2.'
It might be a grain-of-salt news bite, but it takes no stretch of the imagination to believe. Casting actors to play on their deficiencies is always popular, and when the actor in question is making his controversy work for him, all the better. What studio would refuse a tongue-in-cheek joke and a loyal fan following?
And just what is it about Charlie Sheen that makes his controversies so easy to swallow and forget?
