Wilson, Sheen discuss 'Major League III'

Brian WilsonSo why was Giants' closer Brian Wilson at Charlie Sheen's house? To advise on Major League III, apparently.

"Quite frankly, when Rick Vaughn calls the bullpen, I'm going to answer -- on a  professional level, of course," Wilson told Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Although TMZ.com called the get-together a "party," Wilson said it was more of a meeting to gain insight for another Major League movie -- apparently Major League: Back to the Minors didn't count as a true sequel, so they're making Major League III -- that or they're just trying, like the rest of us, to pretend it never happened. Anyway, Wilson said he was invited to talk about his workouts, pitching and other "baseball-related topics."

As far as any worries the Giants may have about Wilson cavorting with Sheen, Wilson said it's a non-issue.

"Basically [the meeting] was talking about how [Sheen] can portray this in the movie," Wilson said. "As far as talking about guilty by association, c'mon. I'm linked to the Sea Captain. I'm linked to the Machine. That doesn't bother me. People are going to make their assumptions. That's fine. You guys know me, know who I am. I shouldn't have to do a character sketch of myself."

The first Major League was released in 1989, meaning Sheen would be in his 23rd big-league season. Omar Vizquel also debuted in 1989, so it's not entirely out of the question. Other notables to have debuted in 1989 were Ken Griffey Jr., David Justice, Deion Sanders and Sammy Sosa.

Wilson, Sheen discuss 'Major League III'

Considering that James Gammon passed away and Omar Epps is no replacement for the incarcerated Snipes, the only possible way I'd pay money to see Major League III is if Brian Wilson himself portrays the long lost illegitimate son of Rick Vaughn. Or maybe if Charlie Sheen simply portrays himself, giving a touch of realism to the Wild Thing persona by snorting tons of blow and partying with hookers throughout the film. Hell, there would hardly even have to be any baseball scenes in the movie for it to be successful. People just love watching celebrities self-destruct

At least bring back Wesley Snipes to play Hayes, he was way better than Epps. Also James Gammon (Lou Brown) died last year, good luck trying to sell tickets to that one. Hope Wilson convinced Sheen at least to get back to the set of Two and Half Men!!
