Troubled actor Charlie Sheen has expressed his desire to run for the White House and have his father Martin Sheen as Vice President.
The 49-year-old appeared on The Flipside With Michael Loftus where he discussed his political views and a possible run in 2016. "I conducted a poll - it was like 10 guys. In every situation - it doesn't matter the ethics, scenario or the social scenario - when I say, 'Hey, what if I ran for president?' It's a 100%.
"Guess who my vice president is? My dad. It would be Sheen and Sheen 2016. Running on a platform of truth and transparency. Seriously," he said.
If he runs for office, the Anger Management star said the three laws he would like to pass are providing each school with an armed military veteran for protection, a flat tax rate of 10 per cent and a philosophy of "everybody relax".
Both father and son have played presidents in the past: Charlie played President Rathcock in Machete Kills while Martin famouly played President Bartlet on TV's The West Wing.
