Charlie Sheen Gets Another Standing Ovation in Cleveland
The actor scores major points by wearing an Indians jersey on stage and saying he wants to shoot the third "Major League" film in the city.
Charlie Sheen received the second standing ovation on his My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not an Option tour Tuesday night.
The actor, who played Cleveland Indian Rick "Wild Thing" Vaughn in Major League, came out on stage wearing a Cleveland Indians jersey. Sheen also regularly wears hats and T-shirts featuring Cincinnati Reds and Cleveland Indians logos. (He also showed off a "Sheenius" T-shirt, one of the 22 phrases he is trying to trademark.)
Like the Chicago crowd, the audience in Cleveland also chanted "Detroit Sucks!" before the show started -- a nod to Detroit's booing the actor Saturday on opening night of his tour.
During the show, he generated cheers when he said he's still looking to do Major League 3 and wants to shoot the film in Cleveland.
He also got audience support when he said he wanted to return to Two and a Half Men, the CBS sitcom he was fired from last month. He told the crowd that if he needed to apologize to his former bosses at CBS and Warner Bros. TV as well as show co-creator Chuck Lorre to get his job back, he would — because he was a good enough actor to pull it off convincingly.
Sheen's "goddesses" -- Rachel Oberlin and Natalie Kenly -- again made a brief appearance, with guitarist Rob Patterson performing occasionally.
But Sheen mostly stuck to the format he debuted in Chicago -- talking and answering questions from a moderator, according to Ohio.com. He declared Apocalypse Now, starring his father, Martin, as the greatest movie ever made, followed by Jaws and Major League, and he also compared his feeling about his ex-wives to how Cleveland residents feel about LeBron James, the pro baskeball player ruffled hometown feathers when he announced over the summer on national TV that he was switching from the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Miami Heat.
After the show was over, Sheen celebrated by surprising his crew with a trip to a local movie theater to watch Apocalypse Now, according to TMZ, which claimed that Sheen and "50 of his closest friends had the run of" the 12-screen theater.
