Charlie Sheen could have played Spider-Man?

Warning: This post is full of tiger's blood and winning.

Or not winning...that's up to you to decide.

Thanks to one of my Facebook buddies, Logan, I came across this interesting article. I'm not sure if this is common knowledge, or a tidbit for someone in need of attention. Charlie Sheen that is.

Since I do have a soft spot for Sheen in my heart, I was a little drawn into this piece of information that he shared with Jay Mohr on his podcast. Before everyone got on the Spider-Man bandwagon, Sheen apparently had the idea to bring it to the big screen first. Here's what he said:

"I had an office at Orion at the time, and I brought them Spider-Man. I said, ‘Look, in a couple of years, I’ll be too old to play Peter Parker.’"

The studio, which is now bankrupt, gave Charlie a rather firm answer despite his plea:

"And they said, ‘Yeah, we’re just thinking that cartoons are not the future, comic books are not the future.’ And I said, ‘But it’s Spider-Man, I’m perfect.’ And they were like, ‘Nah, we’re gonna wait.’"

A younger version of Sheen as Parker? You're going to have to give me some time to really dwell on that one. While he did rock a good pair of glasses in MAJOR LEAGUE, I'm not sure he was ever Peter Parker material. Another question arises-- Is Charlie Sheen telling the truth? Or is he messing with our spidey sense?
