“American Idol” hasn’t brought in the greatest numbers as of late and as the shows pulls into season 12, there are multiple changes afoot.
With talk of all three current judges; Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson heading for the hills after season 12 (and with the possibility that Jennifer may not be there for it at all), Nigel Lythgoe; the producer of “Idol” is throwing out his net for some interesting people as judges, including season 7 runner-up Adam Lambert.
But the most WTF name of all? Charlie Sheen.
Seriously. Charlie Sheen.
More of the head scratching nature after the jump.
Right now, the talk is nothing more than talk… but TMZ caught up to Charlie and he said he would consider the “Idol” judge panel a “winning” move, but they would have to meet his demands.
A hypothetical job that comes with demands… only Charlie, people. He’s requesting:
CONDITION #1. Charlie says FX — the network that airs his show “Anger Management” — must sign off on an “Idol” deal … but Jennifer Lopez proved, being on A.I. can be good for business.
CONDITION #2. Charlie says the money has to be right: “If the numbers move the needle AND ‘Idol’ matches 20% of my weekly salary for Autism Speaks, JDRF, and the Boys and Girls Club … then the hell with it. As we say, pour the smoke.”
“Pour the smoke” = “let’s do this”.
Another name being tossed around to join Charlie: legendary comedian Jerry Lewis.
Um… that might be a bad idea (especially during the live shows).
Actually, I think they’re just trying to build their train wreck quota over Britney Spears on “The X-Factor”.
Oh, did we mention that “Idol” hasn’t even officially been picked up for season 12 yet? I’m sure it will be, but that’s a lot of hope for a bunch of hot mess.
