Though Charlie Sheen’s film career started out extremely bright, with starring roles in Platoon (1986), Wall Street (1987) and Major League (1989), among others, most of the films he made in the 90s barely did any box office. He also gave into the pressures of celebrity. For many years, he was addicted to drugs and alcohol, and in and out of rehab centers. In 2000, Sheen bounced back when he replaced Michael J. Fox as the male lead in Spin City. He won an Emmy
and a Golden Globe for the role. He then moved on to another successful sitcom, Two and a Half Men. He is presently the highest earning sitcom star on TV. He is now happily married to real estate investor Brooke Mueller.
