Charlie Sheen Talks Taking on American Idol Judge Role: “It Could be Radical”

Charlie Sheen has spoken on being offering a judging role for the upcoming season of American Idol. He says that the offer came as a complete surprise to him, and he is actually very excited to take on the job if they accept his offer. He believes that he would be a completely different kind of judge for the show which is why it actually might work out really well:

”It kind of came out of nowhere and I responded with a quote just to sort of check the temperature of it or test the waters, haven’t heard anything back. I guess it got some people curious. It seems so out of the blue that it almost made perfect sense. I thought this could be a lot of fun. Seriously…I’m genuinely interested. It’s so different, it could be radical.”

Charlie has also opened up on returning to the small screen with his new show ‘Anger Management’ which he says he is extremely proud of, which is what makes the comeback easier. He says it is very different to his past performance on ‘Two and a Half Men’ which is why is it so interesting:

”It’s exciting! It’s not just coming back on, but to come back on with something that I’m really proud of. It’s really exciting to see the response and to see how people are really tuning into this thing and just not being let down. It’s a readjustment, because I left a show they were quite fond of and got very familiar with these characters and these stories and then one day it just got shut off, but I’m excited to bring something back. It’s so different, you can’t even compare the two.”
