Charlie Sheen is on fire right now. The troubled actor / warlock has gained 1 million followers on Twitter in just 24 hours, and continues to spout amazing one-liners and philosophical ramblings as he sits at home waiting for a call from the producers of Two and a Half Men. As far as we know, that call has not yet come, but in the meantime, there are plenty of other people trying to get a hold of Sheen. People like Todd Phillips, director of The Hangover and its upcoming sequel The Hangover Part II. A proposed Mel Gibson cameo ended up getting the kibosh thanks to protests from other cast and crew members, but could we see a last minute cameo from Hollywood’s latest celebrity meltdown instead?
According to Badass Digest, a reliable source claims that they are in discussions with Sheen about appearing in the film. Although production on The Hangover Part II has already wrapped, it’s still quite possible for them to shoot something now and get it into the final film, particularly if it’s a post-credit stinger or something completely unrelated to the story.
We know that Mel Gibson’s role in the movie eventually went to Liam Neeson, but somehow I can’t see him achieving the desired comedic effect. Perhaps that is why the producers of the film are now trying to shoehorn Charlie Sheen in at the last minute. But how long will it be before his whole situation blows over and the world loses interest? The movie hits theatres on May 27th, so hopefully he can keep the hilarity coming for at least a few more months. What do you think, is a Charlie Sheen cameo a good idea, or is this just another example of people trying to take advantage of the public breakdown of a Hollywood star?
