(NEW YORK) — Charlie Sheen is focused on family following his well-documented meltdown last year.
The proof is in Sheen’s new comedy, Anger Management, which premieres on FX this Thursday night. His ex-wife, Denise Richards, and his father, Martin Sheen, are both scheduled to make guest appearances on the show.
Sheen tells ABC News Radio that his father plays his on-screen dad.
He continues, “He’s fallen on some hard times and he has to come and he’s trying to work an angle on me but it doesn’t really work.”
Sheen notes that his brother, sister and nephew work on the show behind the scenes.
Sheen says he’s working with Richards away from the camera, too, as parents of two daughters.
He says, “Everything with them is great. The girls feel like they have two parents back in their life again, which is really important, you know?”
Aside from Anger Management, Sheen has been named a “social media ambassador” for WWE’s 1,000th episode of its flagship series, Monday Night Raw, airing live on USA on July 23. He’ll tweet commentary throughout the show.
