Charlie Sheen hosted a weekend screening of his 1989 comedy "Major League" for an all-star audience that included baseball greats like Brian Wilson, Kenny Lofton, Todd Zeile, Eddie Murray and Lenny Dykstra.
But the screening wasn't all fun and games, Sheen told TMZ. "The reason for the night," he said, "was to get everybody excited about doing 'Major League 3.'"
A third film—"Major League: Back to the Minors"—was released in 1998, but Sheen, who played Ricky "Wild Thing" Vaughn in the first two movies, believes it doesn't count.
"I think enough time has gone by for people to have forgotten the second one and that third abortion that came out has to be forgotten as well," he told TMZ.
Sheen added that all of the other actors are on board for doing a third film, but he is still in negotiations with the production company. "You might want to flood Morgan Creek with letters and an angry mob with burning torches, because they don't seem to think that I'm as valuable as I do," he said.
In the meantime, the troubled star is reportedly getting ready to head back to work on his hit CBS sitcom "Two and Half Men" next week.
"Dude, I'm just going to go in there and keep winning," he said. "If they act like a bunch of losers, that's up to them."
