Charlie Sheen has booked his first movie role since his breakdown earlier this year when he was fired from Two And A Half Men, Variety reports.
The actor will star in the indie film A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charlie Swan III with Jason Schwartzman.
Roman Coppola will write and direct.
The plot sounds awfully familiar -- Sheen will play a successful graphic designer whose money and charm have brought him fame until he heads into a downward spiral.
Sheen recently made a deal to develop a sitcom based on the 2003 Adam Sandler movie Anger Management.
As of late, Sheen is reportedly on the upswing -- he celebrated his birthday with low-key dinners on two separate occasions, with exes Brooke Mueller and Denise Richards. His Comedy Central roast is set to air Sept. 19 -- the same day as the season premiere of Two And A Half Men.
