Charlie SheenThat hospital stay yesterday didn't get in the way of Charlie Sheen's work schedule -- his manager told People that the actor will return to work this week.

"Charlie will be working this week doing a cameo role, playing himself, in a small movie as a favor to a friend and has every intention of going back to work on 'Two and a Half Men' on Tuesday," Mark Burg told the magazine. "He's looking forward to working."

Sheen was found drunk and naked in his trashed New York hotel room early Tuesday morning, and was immediately hospitalized then released later in the day. Though sources claim the hospitalization was due to intoxication, Sheen's rep said it was an "adverse reaction to some medication."
