Charlie Sheen wants Corbin Bernson for MAJOR LEAGUE 4
Even though Charlie Sheen is known lately for his drug problems, his extensive porn collection, and his porcelain teeth - having had his original molars replaced after too much free-basing - his character Rick "Wild Thing" Vaughn is still his most recognizable role and the way movie fans choose to remember him. With a fourth installment on the horizon - a direct sequel to the original in many ways - the original cast is in place, including Sheen, Tom Berenger, Renee Russo, and Wesley Snipes. Unfortunately, everyone's favorite asshole Roger Dorn, played by Corbin Bernson, is not in the new script. And Bernson and Sheen want to change that.
Bernsen reportedly reached out to Morgan Creek, the film's production company, about making a triumphant return to the field as Roger Dorn, but his rep tells TMZ that it's unlikely right now. "Corbin would LOVE to do another MAJOR LEAGUE but it doesn't look like he's been written into the movie at this point. We're hopeful he gets written in by the time it's finalized though."
Sheen is finally returning to Two and a Half Men this week to keep CBS from losing millions, and the actor pledged that he would do his "best" to get Bernson involved, but he did acknowledge that he's just a "hired gun" at this point. "I would love it for him to be in," Sheen says, "but I ain't the writer or director."
Sheen just had an All-Star screening of MAJOR LEAGUE last weekend, with many legendary players attending the event which also featured the writer/director of the original David S. Ward. It's unclear how much pull Sheen has, but if the idea is to send the franchise out with some dignity it only seems right to include Bernson as well.
Does a new MAJOR LEAGUE movie sound like a good idea to you?
