TV Guide is bringing us some news that actually isn’t too surprising. Entourage creator Doug Ellin is going after Charlie Sheen for season eight of the show. Ellin has been trying to get in touch with Sheen, telling TV Guide that “I called his manager and was told maybe I’d get him. But I’m still waiting for Charlie to call me back. I’d come up with something good.” The show has always been pretty cameo heavy, featuring well known faces in almost every episode.
I kind of saw this one coming but I don’t disagree with it. I think it’s a great idea. This season already has a few big cameos lined up such as Christian Slater, Alex Rodriguez, Johnny Galecki, Mark Teixeria of the New York Yankees, as well as NBA players Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire. So why not add Sheen?
With the show finishing filming in mid-June, it may come down to a matter of time, and if they have time to fit him in. Hopefully it all works out because I think it would be quite entertaining to see Sheen on the show and I think the writers could have some fun with his role. It would be interesting to see if he would play himself or an actual character. Hopefully we’ll know more soon.
Entourage will air on HBO beginning July 24.
