Actor, baseball fan and professional curiosity Charlie Sheen will join ESPN’s “Baseball Tonight” when it broadcasts live from Sunday night’s Reds-Cardinals game in Cincinnati, the Hollywood Reporter is reporting (heh).
Sheen, who played high school baseball in California and has appeared in the “Major League” movies along with “Eight Men Out,” is a lifelong Reds enthusiast. He’ll be joined by Reds Hall of Famer Barry Larkin on the show.
The second, 90-episode (!) season of Sheen’s “Anger Management” show is currently airing on FX. He’s probably hoping that his appearance helps out his show more than it did for Jon Hamm’s “Million Dollar Arm,” which is tanking at the box office despite heavy ESPN promotion. Hamm appeared on “Baseball Tonight” for the May 11 Cardinals-Pirates game.
