Top Idol producer Nigel Lythgoe has made it loud and clear that Charlie Sheen is his first pick to join the panel for season 12! That's according to TMZ. And believe it or not, Charlie said he would be extremely interested in the opportunity! Can you imagine the chaos at that table?!
However, Charlie said there are three things which must happen in order for him to join the panel. FX, the network which airs his show Anger Management, must approve a deal with the show. They also must meet his salary requirements and then match 20 percent of his weekly salary to give to charities including Autism Speaks, JDRF and the Boys and Girls Club.
We can't imagine that FX would turn down the extra publicity for his show, especially since the initial reviews were terrible. And given that Jennifer Lopez received $12 million for this season of Idol, it's hard to imagine Charlie would want more than that. It looks like there's a good chance of this happening!!
