Charlie Sheen, TV’s highest paid violent drug-addicted assh*le, will have a cameo on Season 2 of “The Walking Dead” next year, according to a poorly written and factually incorrect report from socyberty.com.
Sheen apparently told his publicist what a fan he was of the show recently, and the publicist, who also represents Walking Dead actor Jeffrey DeMunn, contacted one of the show’s producers and inquired if they were interested in allowing Sheen to be an extra on the film [sic], playing the part of a zombie. The producer, himself a big fan of Sheen’s show Two and a Half Men, said “Absolutely!”
Sheen’s involvement may very well lead to others in the acting community making brief cameos as zombies, and idea Walking Dead creator Andrew Lincoln [sic: Lincoln plays Rick Grimes] reportedly welcomes.
I’m sure some fans of “The Walking Dead” will be quick to pooh-pooh Sheen’s appearance on the show just because he’s an unapologetic spoiled misogynistic wife-beating hooker enthusiast. I disagree: I’ll watch anything that involves Charlie Sheen getting a pickax to the head.
UPDATE: I hope you’re sitting down when you read this shocking news: the spurious-sounding rumor from a website we’ve never heard of has been dismissed as “crazy” by an AMC rep.
