Considering Martin Sheen and Charlie Sheen are an actual father and son, they probably had a lot of fun with the role reversal on the latest episode of "Anger Management." In it, Charlie helped Martin connect with a group of singers his age. He was hoping to get his dad some friends of his own so he wouldn't be hanging around with the family all the time. The plan backfired.
Charlie came home to find the house trashed and Martin asleep on the couch. He and his new friends had thrown a huge party and wrecked the place. The role reversal continued throughout the episode, with Martin playing the role of a sullen teenager to perfection.
At one point, a couple of the other older folks' kids dropped by and said that Martin was the troublemaker, but Charlie defended his father, saying that Martin maintained it was the other parents who were the problem.
It's easy to imagine that Charlie Sheen was quite a handful for his father as a teenager, so Martin Sheen may well have enjoyed giving him some of his own attitude right back. He may have even been inspired by specific memories of a sullen teenage Charlie in preparing for his scenes.
The laughs keep coming on "Anger Management" every Thursday at 9:30 p.m. EST on FX.
