Charlie Sheen to Reprise Ferris Bueller’s Day Off Role in Philly-Based Sitcom The Goldbergs
The episode will follow Barry (Troy Gentile) as he fakes being sick in an attempt to create his own epic, Bueller-esque day off.
Predictably, Barry’s day ends in disaster. When Pops (George Segal) and Adam (Sean Giambrone) attempt to salvage Barry’s day, it only gets worse.
It’s Barry’s sister, Erica (Hayley Orrantia), who gets to meet “Boy in the Police Station” – after ratting out her brother, no less.
The Goldberg’s is based off director/creator Adam F. Goldberg’s upbringing in Jenkintown and features homages to some of the things he loved as a kid (i.e. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off) and even recreations of local landmarks. In May he had Hiway Theater recreated for an episode about protagonist Adam waiting in line to see the Star Wars premiere.
The Sheen episode is set to air in 2015. Until then, brush up on his scene in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off below:
