(Newser) – Yep, this is happening: Charlie Sheen was officially announced as the star of new sitcom Anger Management yesterday. Sheen will have "a significant ownership stake" in the show, loosely based on the 2003 Jack Nicholson-Adam Sandler movie of the same name. "While it might be a big stretch for me to play a guy with serious anger management issues, I think it is a great concept," Sheen says in the press release. Just one problem: The Los Angeles Times reports the show still has not found a network. In other Sheen-related news, ex Brooke Mueller has also found a new project: "extreme rehab," whatever the heck that is.
