Charlie Sheen will coach actors as part of his work release from prison.

The 'Two and a Half Men' star - who will appear in court in Aspen, Colorado today (07.06.10) to answer charges relating to a row he had with wife Brooke Mueller on Christmas Day (25.12.09) - will reportedly work with staff at the Theatre Aspen on three of the theatre's summer plays, 'The Wonderettes', 'Three Little Pigs' and 'Same Time Next Year', if a judge agrees to recommend him for day release.

The theatre's artistic director Paige Price told CNN: "We've often been in a position of helping people fulfil their community service, but he would be our highest profile intern."

Charlie will also be doing meet-and-greets for Theatre Aspen fundraising and will work with theatre group children.

The actor - who has been living separately from Brooke, the mother of his 15-month-old twin sons Bob and Max, since the incident - has agreed a plea bargain with the court and is expected to plead no contest to third-degree misdemeanour assault and will accept a 30-day sentence.

However, he could serve just 17 days if he is given early release for good behaviour.
