'Welcome back': Charlie Sheen makes comeback to small screen with Doug Ellin’s pilot
Actor Charlie Sheen is returning to acting with a TV pilot written and produced by ‘Entourage’ creator Doug Ellin. The 56-year-old actor has shared a photo from the set of the upcoming show on his Instagram account that also featured Kevin Connolly, Kevin Dillon, Doug Ellin, and some other actors. He captioned it, “Epic first day with my new “2nd” family. xox ©.”
Sheen was last seen in a 2017 film ‘9/11’ that co-starred Whoopi Goldberg and Luis Guzman. The same year, he also appeared in two episodes of Comedy Central’s ‘Typical Rick’. The ‘Anger Management’ star’s career took a backseat after he went through some high-profiled battles in the past. It was reported that he battled through addiction as well as was diagnosed with HIV in 2015. Besides, he had issues with his ex-wife Denise Richards too. But now, it appears Sheen is working towards a better life.
