Even with tiger blood and Adonis DNA, and habits that could have killed even Keith Richards or Mick Jagger, at the end of the day, Charlie Sheen remains an entertainer. The actor will premiere his own Funny Or Die clip today.The actor, whose catchphrase “winning” has already become an Internet phenomenon, is capitalizing on his new-found fame in a brand new skit for FOD.
It’s called “Winning Recipes” and will, apparently, have Charlie as the cook willing all types of food into existence by the power of his mind, Us Magazine has learned.
The clip will debut on Funny Or Die sometime today, but reports in the media suggest that this is Charlie proving to the world he can still poke fun at himself for everything going on in his life recently.
One might as well note that this will do nothing in terms of making rumors about the “meltdown” being a PR stunt die down.
“The skit was produced as a way to remind people he knows what everyone is thinking and he’s in on it too,” a production source reveals for the aforementioned magazine.
“The clip – which pokes fun at his recent firing from Two and a Half Men – also contains nods to several of his former films, including Wall Street and Apocalypse Now. The script was written by former Saturday Night Live writer and producer Adam McKay, who runs Funny or Die with Chris Henchy and Mike Farah,” Us reports.
Photos from the shoot have already emerged online, confirming that the skit will be about a cooking show, as Charlie is wearing an apron and a cooking hat.
“Charlie doesn’t want to do more press like last week – that was a moment in time for him. But while he’s dealing with the custody cases and the lawsuit, he needs to rethink some things about how to keep his fans happy. He’s an entertainer first,” the same production source reveals.
Another report, this time from TMZ, says that Sheen was “very professional” during the shoot, hinting at none of the disturbed episodes in recent weeks.
Again, this begs the question of whether he hasn’t been playing a hoax on everybody all along – but the answer to that is unlikely to come very soon.
