A number of players at the Taj Mahal in Atlantic City took the gamble of taking in warlock Charlie Sheen's "Violent Torpedo of Truth" tour Saturday night.
Two weeks after launching his tour in Detroit, Sheen retooled his show, eliminating the need for an opening act, a moderator, and a montage of his infamous interviews.
Sheen showed up 45 minutes late to his show, keeping with his usual pattern. When he finally took the stage (to the "Jaws" theme and clips from "Apocalypse Now"), the crowd seemed willing to forgive him.
"Sorry, I'm (expletive) late," Sheen said. "That's how I roll."
After playing around with various jerseys — Sheen tried on a 76ers shirt, then settled for a Phillies jersey — he settled down to start the show. And he went right after his hit series, "Two and a Half Men".
"Let's face it. I was f--kin' hammered on that show for eight years," he said, though he repeated his earlier claims that he and his team were "making progress" toward getting him back on the show, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
