Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman is clearly a huge fan of Charlie Sheen.

The writer of the graphic novels and executive producer of the hit AMC television series tells The Hollywood Reporter he would love Sheen to appear in the second season.

"Charlie call us, we we will totally make that happen," he says, speaking from the Paley Center Walking Dead event Friday. "We'll do whatever you want."

So what could Sheen expect? Perhaps lead in the series even though the part of Sheriff Rick Grimes is played by actor Andrew Lincoln.

"We'll recast YOU as Rick," says Kirkman, still speaking to Sheen with tongue very much in cheek. "Andrew Lincoln will find something else to do."

Other options? "He can direct an episode," says Kirkman.

"Actually (Sheen) could play a car for all I care," he adds. "He's awesome."

Sheen unveiled the Sheen's Korner webcast on Saturday night.
