I turned on Jay Leno to see Charlie Sheen do what he does best, and I wasn’t disappointed, but I was glad to see that he could still be funny without the wild streak. Perhaps if he had shown that sort of side of him during his live shows he might have got a better response. He was there to promote his Comedy Central Roast, but he talked little about that, getting to the heart of the matter, the last year from his downfall to picking himself back up.

Leno asked him early about the preceding year and Charlie was not upset or bitter at all. In fact he seemed to take it all in stride that it was something that happened, it hurt for a bit, but now he’s ready to move on. And he talked about his craziness after his suspension, where he spoke of his tiger blood and Adonis DNA. He said that he never really believed the stuff he spewed out randomly and did so to be entertaining, as a joke. He was just as surprised when T-Shirts were coming out with his slogans on them, something he said he got no money from, even Winning. This time he didn’t blame the audience that spurred him on but took responsibility for it and said he even regretted much of it.

As to Two and Half Men, he really thought that they would get him back, but he realized at some point it was not in the cards and that is when he realized he wasn’t winning, but losing. And he said that it was that moment that he realized all the craziness was doing him more harm than good and decided to get away from it and try to make it right. He also said that he had not heard from any of the staff or cast from the show lately. When asked what he would say to Ashton Kutcher, who will be added to show in his place, he said to do him proud.

He also delved a bit into his love life, that he was only friends at this point with Brooke Mueller and that their romantic getaway was like a date, if he even knew what dating was.

The subject then turned to his father, who had been pretty worried about him. Leno said that he was saddened to see Martin Sheen in pain over what was happening, but Charlie said not to worry, that they had reconciled and his father even appears in a promo for the Roast. In it, Charlie Sheen recreates the scene his father made famous in Apocalypse Now where he is coming out of the water in camouflage gear, but instead of a swamp, it’s a backyard pool with two bikini clad women. Martin Sheen comes out, tells the girls to go home, and for Sheen to come in. And he finishes with the line, “Will it never end?”

And Sheen says that while he’s been on a runaway train as the hesitant conductor, his craziness is coming to an end as he gets back into work mode.

All in all, the interview was the Charlie we’d like to see, not the chaotic crazed one we have been. Some people may see that as a bad thing, but I see it as a man who just might be able to pull himself up, dust himself off, and continue his career. Like Robert Downey Jr. did.
