Jimmy welcomed Charlie by referring to him as “a talented actor and pop-culture phenomenon.”
He and Charlie then went on to joke about Sheen’s very-public meltdown more than a year ago when he was fired from “Two and a Half Men” and then launched his now-infamous media blitzkrieg in which he talked about “winning” and “tiger blood” and boasted of his prodigious drug use.
Now, to promote his new sitcom — premiering Thursday (June 28) at 9/8c on FX — Sheen is seeking to reboot his image.
And one way of doing that is to look back on his behavior in early 2011 and express regret for it. It’s a “What was I thinking” approach that will likely work for Sheen, who seems to possess a unique ability to win people over, no matter how much they might be repelled by his hard-partying private life.
“What was I talking about?” Sheen asked Fallon rhetorically when the two joked about Sheen’s use of the word “winning” back then. “I’d lost my children, my job, my money, and my stature, my mind … What was I winning about?”
On the “Fallon” show, Sheen showed once again that he’s the most Teflon-coated celebrity on the scene today.
He and Jimmy showed a clip from “Anger Management” and also took up some batting practice in a batting cage.
And Charlie behaved himself the whole time.
