For some men, going to the theater is punishment -- but for Charlie Sheen, it actually is punishment. As part of Sheen's plea agreement for his domestic violence charge, he may be doing time at Theatre Aspen in Colorado. The nonprofit regional theater wants to put Sheen to work during the day, teaching acting classes, fundraising, and perhaps even doing some acting. "He won't be around long enough to star in one of the shows, but we might try to do a one-night reading with him," said the theater's artistic director. "I'd be crazy not to use him... Somebody of Charlie's experience and caliber could be good for our actors."
But after the curtain closes, it's back to the clinker for the Two and a Half Men star. Sheen, 44, will most likely need to spend his nights in jail. His prison term could be as little as 15 days, with good behavior, and his unpaid work with the theater will count as community service.
Sheen has been charged with felony second-degree assault, felony menacing and criminal mischief, for assaulting his wife Brooke Mueller. While the terms of the plea deal are still being hashed out, Mueller's lawyer says the theater internship is a pretty sure thing.
Even if Sheen is getting off easy for what he did, we love the idea of a nonprofit arts organization benefitting from his mistakes. Although really, it shouldn't take a judge to convince celebrities to support the arts!
