The past several months have seen actor Charlie Sheen become the focus of a maelstrom of media coverage. Following a health scare, the film and TV star engaged in a series of media interviews during which he espoused a series of bizarre catchphrases that soon found themselves in the popular lexicon. (The totality of those comments led to him being fired from the popular sitcom Two and a Half Men, which airs on GameSpot parent company CBS.)
Now, the Associated Press reports that Sheen has hired an outside company to trademark many of those phrases for use in a variety of fields--including games. According to the news service, Hyro-gliff, a company associated with the actor, filed a flurry of trademark applications between March 19 and 22 for 22 terms. These include "Adonis DNA," "Duh, Winning," "Vatican Assassin," "Tiger Blood," and "Rock Star from Mars."
The trademarks were filed for a variety of fields, including drinks, candy, women's underwear, gambling machines, and, yes, video games. Exactly what form a Charlie Sheen-based game would take--or whether one will ever be made--has yet to be determined. The actor is currently on a speaking tour of the US and Canada, and he will appear in Cleveland, Ohio this evening.
