He's Back! Sheen Returning To TV With New Show

MSNBC.COM - Yup, all those earlier reports you read about Charlie Sheen's return to the small screen turned out to be mostly true.

It was announced Monday morning that as TMZ and Radar previously reported, the actor will be working with Lionsgate and its subsidiary Debmar-Mercury to bring the sitcom "Anger Management" to television. According to earlier reports, Sheen will play a character like Jack Nicholson's therapist from the 2003 film, on which the new series is loosely based.

But Sheen won't just be acting -- he'll have a significant ownership stake in the new show.

"I chose 'Anger Management' because, while it might be a big stretch for me to play a guy with serious anger management issues, I think it is a great concept," Sheen said in a statement. "It also provides me with real ownership in the series, a certain amount of creative control and the chance to be back in business with one of my favorite movie producers of all time, Joe Roth."

Roth and Sheen worked together on the films "Major League," "The Three Musketeers" and three others.

"Anger Management" does not yet have a network attached.

    KHQ.COM - An average house cat weighs between 7-10 pounds but one Spokane woman has a cat whose size is almost unheard of. Out of the corner of your eye, Ollie might be mistaken for a dog... he's that big! Not your normal house cat, Ollie is a Savannah cat, a hybrid breed that's a cross between a serval cat and a domestic cat. So while it's not surprising that he's bigger than a domestic cat, his size is still shocking.
