Ragan’s PR Daily has an item today entitled, “Is Charlie Sheen’s Image Beyond Repair?”
I posted a comment on their site but figured I’d take advantage of his name to drive some blog traffic. (I apologize for gaming the system but it’s the last day of the month and I really need the hits.)
Exactly which image would Ragan have Mr. Sheen repair?
Sheen’s career as an actor peaked with “Platoon,” and even there he was outclassed by just about every other actor on the set. Heck, he wasn’t even the best Sheen to do a Vietnam movie.
As best I can figure, Sheen (and his handlers) have a tremendous opportunity to cash in before he dies, goes to jail or ends up in an institution. All he has to do is run his mouth and gallivant with his “goddesses” while the networks and paparazzi kill each other to capture all the fun.
If I were Sheen, I’d hire a ghost writer and try to crank out a tell-all book in the next six months or so. You and I know every TV talk show would pay to have him on the air, and there’d be plenty of folks lined up to buy it (not anyone YOU know, of course.)
Ragan asks if Sheen’s handlers should dump him once and for all.
I guess it depends which is more valuable to them: Sheen’s life or his livelihood.
