Somewhat unstable star signed on for 90 episodes of FX sitcom 'Anger Management'

After a series of interviews and personal appearances that had many questioning his sanity, actor Charlie Sheen says that "I'm not insane anymore." The "Anger Management" star proudly points to the fact that his FX sitcom his half-way through its initial 10-episode run -- and poised to get an order for 90 more.

Actor Charlie Sheen as seen with executive producer Bruce Helford, Sheen made a series of bizarre appearances following his departure from the TV show 'Two and a Half Men,' but insists that he's not crazy anymore.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - "I don't think 90's gonna be enough," Sheen says. FX also plans to bring Sheen's dad, Martin Sheen, on as a recurring cast member to play the father of Charlie Goodson, the anger-management therapist played by Charlie Sheen. The elder Sheen will guest star on the "Anger Management" episode that airs Aug. 16.

Adding Sheen's father to the series "will give an extra dimension and make it a multi-generational family show," FX boss John Landgraf said.

The hectic production schedule would require filming a total of 100 episodes in just two years, leaving no time for rehearsals, executive producer Bruce Helford says.

"The actors get the lines, we see the scene, the writers make changes, the actors go to makeup, cameras are blocked, we come back together and shoot the scene," he says.

The younger Sheen was mindful of his tumultuous departure from "Two and a Half Men" and the aftermath that had him saying some rather bizarre tings to the press. He likened it to being like "a train I couldn't get off of, except that I was the conductor."

Sheen advises others to "stick to what you know." Referring to his disastrous "My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not an Option" tour in spring 2011, he got laughs from the group when he said, "Don't go on the road with a one-man show in 21 cities without an act."

There have been much-publicized clashes between Sheen and the series' creator Chuck Lorre? Producer Helford proffered that on "Men, Charlie didn't really have a voice with creative input. It wasn't built that way."

Helford says that he's forged a partnership with his star.

"We built this together," Helford says. "And when Charlie's on the stage, that's his stage. When you feel that, your creative juices are flowing, everything is better for you, because you have a say in what you're doing.

"When you don't control your destiny, things get screwed up in your head," he said as Sheen nodded.
