FX’s “Anger Management” is getting twice the amount of Sheen time, according to the upcoming sitcom’s star. Charlie Sheen has revealed that his real-life dad Martin Sheen is going to play his TV dad too.

“Yeah, yeah it’s very true,” Charlie told “Access Hollywood’s” Jill Martin, confirming plans to bring his pop onto the show.

“As the show’s developed, we’re discovering who my family is as I discuss them,” Charlie said of his new TV character – once again named Charlie. “We’re going to find out this guy does have major issues with his pop and when that character does finally show up, it will be my dad.”

“We’re pretty cool,” Charlie added of his relationship with his father, despite his recent troubles.

The show, based on the 2003 film, stars Charlie Sheen as Charlie Goodson, a “multi-dimensional” character who is an ex-ballplayer-turned-therapist who still has some anger issues under his skin.

Just last week Charlie appeared on the “Today” show, where he called his “Two and a Half Men” meltdown “cringeable” and says his experience shooting “Anger Management” is “more fun in eight days than I had in eight years” on the CBS sitcom.

“Anger Management” debuts June 28 at 9/8c on FX.
