Charlie Sheen 'Anger Management' remake? Good idea?

The woods are full of reports -- the "woods" in this case being TMZ -- that Charlie Sheen has signed up for a TV series remake of "Anger Management." Presumably he'll play the Adam Sandler role (kinda unlikely at his age), but don't rule out Jack Nicholson's role! In fact, said reports pretty much say he will be Dave's boss (but different). Basic facts: Joe Roth, who produced early Sheen hits like "Young Guns," and "Major League," wants to do the series with Lionsgate; nothing on the dotted line yet,  etc. 

Good idea? Oh really -- who gives a darn. He can do a remake of "Bad News Bears," for all I care (Which actually . . . come to think of it . . .hmmmm). It's the story of poor abused Dave who loses his cool on an airplane, is tasered, goes to anger management classes . . . I don't recall the rest. 

The idea of "anger management" is firmly affixed to Sheen now for far too many obvious reasons. A series on a subject which has limited comedic value? Unclear what that would be. Also, viewers would expect to see Charlie in the role of Charlie Harper.
