We've learned plenty about addiction from Charlie Sheen, on our narrated tour through winning-ville: Alcoholics Anonymous is a cult, social crack smoking is just plain fun and tiger blood can subdue most anything. Except perhaps the demons of mental illness. Sheen, who now wants to take his rant on the road in his "My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not an Option" tour, doesn't want to talk about that. He'd rather poke fun at the suggestion that bipolar disorder might help explain his rants, his anger, his grandiose notions.

Charlie Sheen hasn't garnered much attention for his big-screen activity lately, and when he does, it's for mainly stunt-y turns. But when the tiger-blooded one isn't busy taking on cameos or loaning Lindsay Lohan money, he's actually been flexing his filmic muscles. Sheen plays the lead role in the Feb. 8 release "A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III," a part in which he -- wait for it -- plays a well-off charmer who begins to come undone. Hollywood mainstay Roman Coppola, who wrote, produced and makes his return to feature directing with the film, says Sheen will surprise a lot of people with his turn.

Too troubled for the Big Ap? The New York Post reports that sitcom bad boy Charlie Sheen may have a difficult time finding lodging when he comes to Manhattan for his "My Violent Torpedo of Truth" tour April 8.

Denise Richards made one thing very clear Friday about being Charlie Sheen's ex-wife and mother of two of his kids: "It's a difficult situation. " Richards, who rarely comments specifically about Sheen's exploits, actually didn't say very much to Barbara Walters and the gang when she guest-hosted Friday on "The View" (Walters admitted being the "designated hitter" tapped to broach the subject), but she did acknowledge how awkward it is for her from a mother's perspective. "I'm learning as I go," said Richards, who explained she can easily control what's on television at home, but still has to deal with what her two girls might pick up at school.

The Charlie Sheen redemption tour continued with an appearance on the Emmy Awards Sunday night, with the actor offering an olive branch to his former colleagues, whom he had relentlessly trashed on TV, radio and Twitter months earlier. Sheen's apparent humility in presenting the award for lead actor in a comedy was the polar opposite of the ranting actor who continually declared that he had "tiger blood" and was constantly "winning. " "I want to take a moment here to get something off my chest and say something to everyone here at 'Two and a Half Men,' " Sheen said before naming the nominees.

Charlie Sheen's $100-million lawsuit against the studio that fired him from "Two and a Half Men" could take the public behind the scenes of the hit television show and beyond the nonstop airing of Hollywood's dirty laundry. The wrongful-termination suit, filed Thursday in Los Angeles County Superior Court, threatens to pull the curtain from the financial secrets behind the show and provide a glimpse of Tinseltown's wheeling and dealing. "There is a lot that Charlie Sheen may believe is private and personal, and all that would come out as would the secret sauce of how Warner Bros.

Charlie Sheen had some kind words to say about working with Lindsay Lohan when he appeared Wednesday on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno. " He had some other words for the troubled actress, too, though he refrained from throwing her totally under the bus. Discussing Lohan's guest turn on his FX series, "Anger Management," Sheen said Lohan showed up on time the first day, knew her lines and was "fabulous. " Then, he told Leno, "we had to deal with Day Two. " Said Sheen, "It was as though she had us held hostage.

CBS is down to one and a half men. Charlie Sheen, star of the network's hit show "Two and a Half Men," was thrown off the show Monday afternoon by Warner Bros., the studio that produces the situation comedy. The move to fire Sheen follows several weeks of highly public and vituperative battling by the actor against CBS, Warner Bros. and "Two and a Half Men" co-creator Chuck Lorre. In a letter to Sheen's lawyer outlining its reasons for his dismissal, Warner Bros. charged that the actor's "erratic behavior" undermined production and said his tabloid lifestyle ?
