Charlie Sheen had stated that he spent about forty eight hours awake to achieve a wasted look for a short scene in 1986’s Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.
But this time it’s not for the big screen, instead, he would be taking that part to the small screen for an upcoming episode of ABC’s The Goldbergs.
The special The Goldbergs episode, will follow the teenaged Barry as he fakes sick in order to take a whole day off of school and other responsibilities.
Yes, this means that The Goldbergs will mirror the plot of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, with a few changes.
In this version, Pops and Barry’s brother, Adam, will attempt to make the day go great for the teen, but things will just seem to go from bad to worse. At some point, Barry will end up at the police station, leading to a scene where his sister, Erica, will meet a much-aged Charlie Sheen while sitting on a blue couch.
Besides, he might not be the first person everyone remembers from that movie, but regardless of what you might think of the man, you have to admit he destroyed as the outrageous boy at the police station who spoke philosophically to Ferris’ sister. No one else in the movie has more great moments per minute on screen.
The Goldbergs is already on winter hiatus, so it’s to be expected that the episode won’t air until midseason 2015.
Though the exact premiere date for the episode is still not know, the outlet does note the fun take on Ferris Bueller’s Day Off will air toward the beginning of the year, instead of later on during Season 2.
The Goldbergs that also stars George Segal, Sean Giambrone, Wendi McLendon-Covey and Jeff Garlin, comes back to ABC in 2015, Wednesdays at 08:30 pm EST.
