And there Simon Cowell thought he'd enlisted the biggest train wreck as a judge...
The Anger Management actor (who's obviously looking for alternative outlets since the ratings bombed spectacularly) says producer Nigel Lythgoe mentioning him as a possible replacement for recently departed panellists Jennifer Lopez or Steven Tyler piqued his interest and he thinks it makes "perfect sense", though he hasn't heard from show bosses since he first expressed his desire to be a judge.
He told On Air with Ryan Seacrest: "It kind of came out of nowhere and I responded with a quote just to sort of check the temperature of it or test the waters, haven't heard anything back. I guess it got some people curious. It seems so out of the blue that it almost made perfect sense. I thought this could be a lot of fun. Seriously... I'm genuinely interested. It's so different, it could be radical."
Charlie previously told Jay Leno on The Tonight Show that his two demands would be that Anger Management bosses "would have to be into it" and there would need to be a donation to (winning) charity.
