Charlie Sheen Talks 'Anger Management' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Charlie Sheen's "I'm back" media tour in the wake of his March 2011 meltdown continued Friday with a stop at "The Wendy Williams Show" (weekdays, syndicated on Fox).

Sheen spoke candidly about his downward spiral and his latest attempts to reinvent himself following his dismissal from "Two and a Half Men."

"I think people -- they've always kind of rooted for me because they know that I'm a guy that just deals with the truth, and admits when I'm wrong," Sheen told Williams. "And that situation was something where I wasn't wrong ... that's why I was so intent on winning," he quipped.

Sheen is returning to the spotlight with a new FX sitcom "Anger Management." He'll play Charlie Goodson, an ex-baseball player whose anger issues put a premature end to his career. He goes back to school and reinvents himself as a therapist with a specialty in ... anger management. The show debuts on FX in June and co-stars Shawnee Smith and Selma Blair. The initial episode order is for 10 episodes, and if it attracts solid ratings, FX will produce 90 additional episodes.

In the show, like in real life, Sheen's character is divorced.

"She's not a downer, she's not a bummer," Sheen told Williams about his TV ex-wife, played by Smith. "That sort of mirrors my situation right now, which is great."
