Charlie Sheen: duh, winning

This just in.

According to an email from Bang Showbiz's Andrew Davies, "Charlie Sheen is to donate $1 from the sale of each ticket to his live shows to the Japanese earthquake relief effort."

"The troubled actor – who last week announced plans to play two live performances of 'My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not An Option Show' in April – will be giving the money to the Red Cross Japanese Earthquake Relief Fund."

How thoughtful.

Inside the Bang Showbiz News email, it was added that Sheen's tour organizers are planning to bring this long-time actor's show to New York and maybe even Europe.

It's true.

Tickets for performances in Detroit and Chicago sold out in 18 minutes. According to Detroit Free Press, "thousands of fans spent serious cash Saturday to see him live." For those who have yet to purchase the ticket, Charlie Sheen Tweets: "Eat your hearts out; literally! Now go buy it."

Charlie Sheen explained a bit more about his awaited shows on Ticketmaster.
"My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not An Option Show is coming for you. I'm going on the road. LIVE. Will there be surprises? Will there be guests? Will there be mayhem? Will you ask questions? Will you laugh? Will you scream? Will you know the truth? WILL THERE BE MORE?!?! This IS where you will hear the REAL story from the Warlock. Bring it I dare you to keep up with me." (FOR MATURE AUDIENCES 18+ OVER)

Here's Alec Baldwin's advice to the 47-year-old actor, as printed in Postmedia News: "Take a nap. Get a shower. Call Chuck (Lorre, we'll presume), go on Letterman and make an apology. Write a huge check to the B'nai Brith. And then beg for your job back."
