Since it won’t happen with Two and a Men, Charlie Sheen may be looking for another way to return to primetime: A source confirmed that the actor met with a Fox Sports executive — as well as suits from the Fox network — even though it doesn’t sound like any ideas were exchanged.
TMZ reported that Sheen sat down with Fox Sports executive David Hill last Thursday, as well as Fox Networks Group Chairman Peter Rice and head of reality Mike Darnell. Apparently, the meeting lasted for about an hour. Why Fox? Well, Sheen’s early rants that led to his firing occurred on the The Dan Patrick Show, which airs on Fox Radio and is simulcast on Fox Sports Net.
Sheen might just be fishing for the best opportunity. Billionaire Mark Cuban, who owns HDNet, also said he had talks with Sheen about bringing the actor’s “winning” act to his cable network. In an interview with ESPN, Cuban, who also owns the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks, said, “I reached out and we’ve had some conversations, and we’re going to work on doing some things.”
