Char­lie Sheen: Hol­ly­wood Black Book

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Sun­day, 8.30pm, Bio What went wrong with this mis­fit son of Martin Sheen ( The West Wing)? Apart from both be­ing ac­tors, they don’t seem to have much in com­mon. Dad’s a strict Catholic much loved by au­di­ences every­where and once called ‘‘ the best ac­tor who never won an Os­car’’. On the other hand, Char­lie, 47, has made a ca­reer out ot bad boy be­hav­iour. He was fired from the cheesy TV se­rial Two and a Half Men by CBS and Warner Bros in March 2011 fol­low­ing re­ports of al­co­hol and drug abuse, do­mes­tic vi­o­lence and other mar­i­tal prob­lems. That about cov­ers his CV. Tonight we’re spoilt to learn how Char­lie be­came a me­dia sen­sa­tion amid a life­time of con­tro­versy. Best­selling author Ian Halperin nar­rates the tell-all spe­cial in which those clos­est to the for­mer star re­veal the man be­hind the out­ra­geous an­tics. If one re­ally cares to know.
