Now, the 45-year-old warlock is set to cast a spell on the world of live entertainment.
A month-long, 20-city Sheen road show was scheduled to kick off in Detroit last night, where he's expected to — well, it's not entirely clear what he's going to do.
Few details have emerged about the format of his proposed performances, although the unemployed actor did say during an appearance on WKQI-FM in Detroit that rapper Snoop Dogg will be at the historic Fox Theatre.
And a former porn actress is one of two women whom he selected to sing the national anthem.
"Detroit, you've been warned," Sheen said during the radio interview. "I am bringing My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not an Option show out to you in the battlefield," Sheen said in a video announcing the tour. "If you're winning, I'll see you there. Trolls need not apply. ... Buy your ticket. Take the ride. And the ride will take you."
As for tickets, Sheen crowed on Twitter about selling out the Detroit show and today's gig in Chicago "in minutes".
In the days before the show, however, secondary sellers such as StubHub.com had hundreds of tickets available, with some singles going for $30 (Dh110) under face value.
