Charlie Sheen Likely Joining Lindsay Lohan on 'Scary Movie 5'

The sad venn diagram overlap between Scary Movie 5 and the Machete franchise increases.

While confirming earlier reports that Lindsay Lohan would join Scary Movie 5, EW has added another bit of condescending shame casting we can look forward to with news that Charlie Sheen will return to the persistent parody series. Though Sheen was previously the lead in Scary Movie 3, playing a spoof on Mel Gibson's Signs character, he's not expected to reprise that part. This sequel is dubbed a reboot, after all, and regardless, his character was impaled on his own erection in the last movie, and the Scary Movie franchise cares about nothing if not the integrity of boner quietus. Besides, if this Machete overlap casting continues, it won't be long until Mel Gibson himself will be in the cast in this too, and you don't want two people playing Mel Gibson, do you? Unless that's what the Scary Movie 5 script treatment is referring to with the line "2x Mel Gibsons = 2x laffs?"...
