How do you say “Punk’d” en francais? Tiger blood boils as Charlie Sheen agrees to THE ARTIST 2

Gather round, children.

Believe it or not, there was a time when your Uncle Charlie was actually something of a well-respected movie actor who was just known for making poor career choices (beyond, say, following up PLATOON with THREE FOR THE ROAD), baseball memorabilia, and a fondness for entertaining Professional Ladies.

Then the whole "Two and a Half Men" thing happened and he got all crazy... er. Like, crazy enough to actually think that Oscar-winning actor Jean Dujardin would call him personally, and ask him to appear in a sequel to THE ARTIST. Listen to Sheen get totally pranked by the Montreal comedy duo Les Justiciers Masqués (The Masked Avengers) après le jump.

Posing as Dujardin, radio prankster Marc-Antoine Audette managed to carry on the (painfully) hilarious conversation with Sheen for over five minutes. The Quebecois duo have managed to dupe Britney Spears, Sarah Palin and even Sir Paul McCartney in the past, so Sheen's in good company. “We thought, why not take the identity of Jean Dujardin, who just won an Oscar, who is one of the hottest guys in Hollywood right now, and see how Charlie Sheen would react,” Audette said of  choosing the "MaSheen."

Early on in the conversation "Dujardin" admits to Sheen he was thinking of him... whilst winning his Oscar. "I was really excited when I was winning, and thought of you - 'Winning! Winning! Winning!'"

Honestly, Charlie, that should have been the tip-off right there.  Wanh, wanh.  Alas, ego-fueled tiger blood is notoriously impervious to things like common sense.
