Charlie Sheen: Joe Estevez, His Uncle, Wants 'Two And A Half Men' Role While He's In Rehab
With family like this...
While Charlie Sheen goes through his latest round of rehab, insisted upon by father Martin Sheen and ex-wife Denise Richards following his hospitalization after a cocaine and porn stars binge, TMZ reports that one family member is actually seeking to take advantage of his troubles.
The site claims it has obtained a letter sent by representatives Sheen's uncle, Joe Estevez -- his father's brother -- to the producers of 'Two And A Half Men,' proposing that he take on a guest role on the show.
"Chuck, just a wild thought ... How about a test episode of 'Two and a Half Men' where Joe comes to house sit while Charlie is on 'vacation?,'" the site quotes the rep's letter proposing -- Chuck refers to Lorre, the show's producer. He tried a similar move when Sheen's contract was running out in April 2010.
Estevez's career has been less successful than that of his brother or nephew, having appeared mainly in independent and B-movies. In 2010 he directed a film called 'Horrorween.'
