Charlie Sheen is hoping to inspire at-risk youths with an educational video he filmed yesterday at Hipster Kids in Westlake Village. Turns out Sheen is good friends with co-owner Julianne Zeile's husband Todd Zeile.

Zeile, a retired baseball player who played for the Mets and now runs I.M.H.P. (Institute For Maximum Human Potential), got his good bud Sheen to help out with the video. The organization promotes job skills and provides direction for at-risk inner city kids in South Central Los Angeles.

The educational video was filmed for the foundation's L.I.F.E. (Los Angeles Institute For Film Education) series. Co-owner Liz Zeile says Charlie was "happy to do this favor for his good friend Todd" and the Two and A Half Men star was "in great spirits during filming."

Todd Zeile tells X17online exclusively:

    "Charlie spoke to the kids and was happy to pose for pictures with them. By no means, we didn't intend for this to be news. This was all for the kids. The kids were enamored by Charlie. They were beyond excited to have him there."
