Charlie Sheen and HDNet founder Mark Cuban planning project
UPI News Service, 03/07/2011
HDNet Chairman Mark Cuban says he and troubled U.S. actor Charlie Sheen intend to work together in the near future.
"It could be a talk show or a reality show," The Hollywood Reporter said Cuban told ESPNDallas.com Sunday.
"We're trying to decide. Right now, we're taping a lot of different things that he's doing and we'll try to figure it out. It's still not 100 percent certain," Cuban said.
"We'll do something together, but it's not certain it will be a show. It'll come down to what he wants do and what his situation is. We'll just figure it out from there, but it's a unique opportunity, I'll say that. ... You've got somebody that everybody has a whole lot of interest in who's doing some interesting things, to say the least, and we always look for interesting programming by featuring interesting people doing interesting things. I reached out and we've had some conversations, and we're going to work on doing some things."
Sheen has been battling an addiction to drugs for some time and has given numerous bizarre interviews in the past few weeks, during which he ranted about his bosses at the sitcom "Two and a Half Men," his family and various ex-girlfriends, as well as joked about his substance abuse and bragged about his own importance.
His erratic behavior prompted the producers of his show to cancel the rest of this season. His longtime publicist also quit, while his estranged wife, Brooke Mueller, requested a restraining order against him and his children were removed by police from his home.
