(NEW YORK) — Charlie Sheen announced on the Late Show with David Letterman Monday night that he’s going to be a grandfather.
Sheen, 47, said his married 28-year-old daughter, Cassandra, is expecting. According to IMDB.com, Cassandra is Sheen’s daughter with ex-girlfriend, Paula Profit.
Sheen seemed amazed by the news that he’s going to be a grandpa, telling Letterman, “For me as a grandfather, I don’t know…it’s like the world is going to crack in half.” Sheen said it’s not a title he’s “ready to adopt.”
Reflecting on his 2011 mega-hyped, catchphrase-spawning flame-out that resulted in him being fired from the CBS series, Two and a Half Men, Sheen said the meltdown was fueled by anger at the network and the production company.
He told Letterman, “I’m sure it looked like I was going to spontaneously combust at any moment, right.”
“Good thing I got the new show, Anger Management,” Sheen added. The series airs on FX.
When Letterman asked Sheen if he would like to make a guest appearance on Two and a Half Men, Sheen replied, “I would like to go back. I would like to appear, uhh, in their final episode.”
When Letterman reminded Sheen that his character had been killed off, the actor replied, “Well, no, I am dead but so is the show.” He quickly added that the series is doing the best it can.
Sheen said a lot of what happened during his meltdown “was memorable,” and provided “experiences” he would never have had otherwise.
Sheen recalled, “I booked a 21-city tour in 33 days with no act.”
The actor said people asked him if he wanted to go on tour and he replied, “Sure. What does that mean?”
Sheen declared that he’s clean and sober “at this moment,” adding “I don’t really believe in that lifestyle anymore because it doesn’t seem fair.” But the next words out of his mouth seemed to contradict his feelings.
“You guys don’t want me clean and sober, right? That’s boring,” Sheen told the audience.
