Movie/TV Trivia

Charlie Sheen stayed awake for 48 hours before one of his first ever film appearance


Before Charlie Sheen was ‘winning’ and drinking ‘tiger blood’, he had a minor role in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986) as a juvenile delinquent/drug addict who is hanging around the police station and waiting to be charged.

Fans of the classic 80s movie will remember that Sheen’s character has a very distinctive ‘bad boy’ look, complete with messed up hair, biker jacket and some very red looking eyes.

In fact, Sheen decided to practice a bit of method acting for the role of the drug addict. No, he didn’t take anything (that we know of), but the actor did stay awake for 48 hours straight before filming to achieve an ‘authentic look’. It definitely paid off because Sheen’s acting career took off not long after his appearance in the movie. He then went on to star in a number of successful films and appeared in Two and a Half Men before famously falling out with the producers.

Nowadays he has that ‘awake all night’ look going for him practically every day – mainly thanks to his tiger blood, of course.
