Charlie Sheen Gets a Standing Ovation (in Cleveland)
The actor, who played a Cleveland Indian in Major League, had a warm audience Tuesday
Charlie Sheen felt the love Tuesday night on his live tour, earning a standing ovation in Cleveland when he walked out on stage in an Indians jersey.
The actor, 45, has a fondness for the Ohio city, having played a Cleveland Indians player in Major League. He got big applause Tuesday when he said he still wants to do Major League 3 and would like to film it in Cleveland, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The audience also backed Sheen when he said he wanted to return to the CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men, from which he was fired last month after lambasting the show’s co-creator, Chuck Lorre, in several bizarre interviews.
Sheen even said he’d be willing to apologize to CBS, Warner Bros. and Lorre, joking that he’s a good enough actor to fake sincerity.
Further buttering up the audience, Sheen also compared his ex-wives to LeBron James, the NBA star who famously jilted Cleveland and joined the Miami Heat last year.
The Cleveland show was Sheen’s third stop on his My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not an Option tour. After being mercilessly booed on Saturday in Detroit, he altered the show Sunday in Chicago with better results, answering questions from a moderator – a format he continued in Cleveland.
