Well, he made it!
Charlie Sheen has yet to prove he will be a ratings hit on cable, but today he has accomplished something many thought very unlikely just a year ago amidst his Two and a Half Men debacle: he has done his job—free of drama!
E! News has exclusively learned that Sheen will successfully wrap production today on the first season of Anger Management, his upcoming series for FX. We've also learned that he had a very special guest with him on set...
Sheen wrapped in-studio shooting for Anger Management's tenth and final ordered episode on Tuesday on a San Fernando soundstage. He is also scheduled to complete one last "pickup" shoot today on location at a baseball field in Long Beach. The shooting pace—some 50 pages of script a day—was breakneck.
"They finished 10 episodes in about six weeks and did it on budget and on time," a show insider says, adding, "It went better than even Charlie could have dreamed it would."
A special guest joined Sheen on set on Monday and Tuesday: his dad, Martin Sheen, who will appear in the tenth episode, playing, well, Charlie's dad. "They got along great and you could tell they had a special bond," our on-set source says.
Anger Management premieres June 28 on FX and is based on the Jack Nicholson movie of the same title.
