Winning? Well, we suppose being employed always helps.
According to Variety, Charlie Sheen is set to star alongside Jason Schwartzman in a film that sounds like it draws inspiration from Sheen himself.
The indie, titled "A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charlie Swan III," will be written and directed by Roman Coppola (who also wrote "The Darjeeling Limited"). The movie follows a graphic designer whose "fame, money and charm" have made him a magnet for the opposite sex.
Until his girlfriend breaks up with him, that is, which sends the character's life into a tailspin.
This is the first film for Sheen since he was booted from "Two and a Half Men" back in March (and was subsequently replaced by a pantsless Ashton Kutcher). The 46-year-old actor also has a TV show in the works based on the 2003 Adam Sandler film, "Anger Management."
