The onetime sitcom star could become a late-night host! That’s just one of the ideas he’s said to be tossing around with network execs. Maybe that’s why CBS wants him back quick?
Charlie Sheen had a secret meeting with Fox to run down possible ideas for his TV comeback — including a late-night gig — according to TMZ.com.
America’s favorite wacko ranter sat down with top executives in entertainment and sports to try to figure what kind of show would work best. They want to capitalize on the meltdown that got Charlie bounced from the CBS mega-hit Two and A Half Men – and then made him a late-night punchline, a web sensation and now a sold-out touring act!
TMZ says the meeting ended without a decision on the best Fox platform for Charlie — but all of the network honchos were charmed by the off-the-rails wildman!
Word of the Fox sitdown came just as it emerged that CBS President Les Moonves is personally trying to get Charlie back on the air on the Warner Bros. Television sitcom that had been such a big hit for his network. Maybe CBS is feeling the heat from Charlie talking with Fox?
