Charlie Sheen Was Cast on ‘Dancing With the Stars’ But He Sashayed Away
We’re totally shook because we had no idea Charlie Sheen was all set to compete on season 28 of Dancing With the Stars alongside dancer Cheryl Burke. But he pulled out!
“I was very flattered by ABC and their offer, but at the end of the day, I have two left feet and I just can’t dance,” the actor told Us Weekly, adding that his casting was part of a bigger deal he had with ABC.
“When there is a big star like that, they will get some sort of deal for a pilot with ABC,” a source explained to Us.
Charlie’s publicist, Jeff Ballard, confirmed that while “ABC made a very generous offer” for a pilot series, “it was contingent upon his participation on Dancing With the Stars.”
This season, Cheryl is partnered with former NFL pro Ray Lewis.
