It might be illegal for Major League Baseball players to take performance enhancing drugs, but when an actor needs to play one, he’s got to do what he’s got to do.
Charlie Sheen, the controversial actor who played Ricky “Wild Thing” Vaughn in the first two ‘Major League’ films back in the late 80’s, has recently admitted to trying steroids while filming the first film.
He tells Sports Illustrated in a new interview: “Let’s just say that I was enhancing my performance a little bit. It was the only time I ever did steroids. I did them for like six or eight weeks. You can print this, I don’t give a f**k. My fastball went from 79 (miles-per-hour) to like 85.”
Sheen admits he had to quit taking the steroids because it aggravated his temper and almost lead to fist fights when people would comment about the “wild thing” hair cut.
“I didn’t like the haircut because it generated so many comments in bars. I’ve got enough of that already. Add that to the mix, and it’s a recipe for a fistfight.”
After his exit from ‘Two And A Half Men,’ and during his world takeover, Sheen was very much on board for the idea of filming a ‘Major League 3.’ (Even know there was a third film back in the 90’s titled “back to the minors,” which Sheen called the franchises abortion.)
