Under-fire actor Charlie Sheen has applied to trademark more than 20 catchphrases developed during his recent “media meltdown.”
The film and TV star, who last month was fired from the cast of “Two and a Half Men,” is attempting to register 22 phrases, including “park your nonsense,” “violent torpedo of truth” and “tiger water.”
Sheen has used the phrases repeatedly in media interviews and public appearances since his high-profile departure from CBS and Warner Brothers last month.
Sheen has teamed up with legal experts in an attempt to secure legal rights to the statements, which could potentially be used on promotional merchandise in the future.
However, some of the popular phrases, such as “winning” and “you’ve been warned,” could be difficult to trademark due to their common, generic nature.
Sheen, 45, made his name in iconic 1980s movies such as “Wall Street” and “Platoon,” and was until recently the highest paid actor on U.S. television.
However, his career has been mired in allegations of drug and alcohol misuse, while the actor has also suffered marital problems.
