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.

After the coffee. Before seeing how "Cosmos" did in the ratings. The Skinny: Man there was a lot of good TV last night. We had the "True Detective" finale, the return of "The Good Wife," the debuts of "Cosmos" and "Resurrection," and, of course, "Girls" and "The Walking Dead. " Alas, my Time Warner Cable DVR didn't record "The Good Wife" so I missed the first 20 minutes. Hope Comcast does better (see below). Today's headlines include the weekend box office recap and a look at the future of music.

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.

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa found himself sucked deeper into the Charlie Sheen-TMZ-Hollywood gossip vortex Tuesday, with the actor speaking out again about the night they met up at a hotel in Mexico over the holidays. Sheen made news last month after he tweeted a picture of himself with his arm around Villaraigosa the night of Sheen's bar opening in Baja California, Mexico. The former star of "Two and a Half Men" praised the mayor as a man who "knows how to party. " But Villaraigosa downplayed the significance of the image, telling KNBC's Conan Nolan over the weekend that he had only "bumped into" Sheen and engaged in a three-minute conversation.

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.

So now we know. If you are the star of a hit comedy on CBS, you can keep your job in spite of accusations of: threatening your pregnant second wife; holding a knife to your third wife's throat on Christmas Day; and indulging in cocaine-fueled weekends during which your bizarre behavior causes your female companion to fear for her life. But say mean things about Chuck Lorre and You Are Toast. It is difficult to feel anything but relief regarding CBS' recent decision to officially halt production of its hit comedy "Two and a Half Men. " A crazed Charlie Sheen once again took to the radio airwaves this week, this time to denounce the show's creator, whom the troubled actor accused of stealing from him. Within hours, CBS and Warner Bros.

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.

The "rock star from Mars" has landed — in another TV show. Four months after getting axed from CBS' "Two and a Half Men" when he publicly attacked his bosses, Charlie Sheen was officially announced Monday as the star in "Anger Management," a proposed sitcom adaptation that seems destined for basic cable and is loosely based on the 2003 movie starring Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler. Sheen will play the Nicholson character, a provocative doctor with some odd therapeutic techniques.

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.
