The Brat Pack Turns 50
Today: Junior Brat Packer though he may have been, Sheen proved senior to everybody in Hollywood in his abilities to party, to make return trips to rehab, to spend money on hookers, and to bounce back from scandal. Amazingly, his work never suffered, and in 2003, he found the ideal role to match his off-screen history in dissolute aging playboy Charlie Harper on CBS' Two and a Half Men. The role made him TV's highest paid actor until his spectacular public meltdown throughout 2011 (All together now: "Winning!"). Even then, he managed another comeback, as a reformed jerk on FX's Anger Management. 50th birthday: September 3, 2015.
