The Goldbergs Enlists Charlie Sheen to Reprise His Ferris Bueller Role

Charlie Sheen The Goldbergs

Charlie Sheen is getting in trouble with the law again.

The former Two and a Half Men star will pay homage to his Ferris Bueller’s Day Off character during The Goldbergs‘ upcoming tribute episode to the 1986 film, People reports.

In the John Hughes classic, Sheen appeared as “Boy in the Police Station,” who was told by Bueller’s sister (played by Jennifer Grey) to “blow [himself].”

On the ABC comedy, it will be Barry’s sis, Erica, who runs into Sheen’s character after ratting out her brother for faking being sick in an attempt to create his own Bueller-esque day off.

    I don’t like when the show leans too heavily on pop culture. Granted, pop culture is one of the cornerstones of the series and can set some interesting context for characterization, but stuff like this pushes it into being BuzzFeed: The Series – something that purely feeds off of nostalgia and the recognizability of certain generational touchstones.

      Just my opinion, but as someone who had the good fortune to grow up in the 80’s (I graduated high school in 1987) that nostalgia is exactly why I watch The Goldbergs.

      What else would there be to use on the show other than pop culture references? That’s all we collectively know/remember from the 80s.

    Didn’t know Sheen was in that movie. Should be a good episode of GBergs, though.
