Randy Quaid wants to open for Charlie Sheen's 'My Violent Torpedo of Truth' tour
Will Charlie Sheen and Randy Quaid, your two favorite stars of "Major League II," soon be reunited on stage? That's what Quaid suggested in the Globe and Mail on Monday. The Canadian newspaper reported that the troubled actor wants to open for the other troubled actor's "My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not an Option Show" tour during a stop in Quaid's current hometown, Vancouver.
"I think it'd be a hoot," said Quaid, who has claimed refugee status in Canada. (He's being sponsored by his Canadian wife Evi, who fled the U.S. with him because they think they're being hunted by a group of "Hollywood star-whackers" responsible for Heath Ledger's death. The couple also left a trail of legal troubles behind in the States. Yeah, we know: It's a long story.)
Quaid suggested that he could warm up the crowd by performing the two songs he debuted at Vancouver's Commodore Ballroom last month and will likely release though Maximum Music Group later this month. Yes, one of those songs is called "Star Whackers," and Quaid has generously offered to let Sheen sing backup on it.
Maximum Music Group presented the proposal last week to Live Nation, the concert promoter behind Sheen's tour, and claimed it was "favorably received."
But Sheen's team doesn't seem so receptive. A spokesman for the actor said there were no plans to have an opening act of any kind in Vancouver. Sigh. It's gonna be an awful long wait til "Major League IV: Star Whackers' Revenge."
