TV star and celebrity train wreck Charlie Sheen will capitalize on his notoriety and free time by appearing at Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort on April 16.

Sheen will bring his "Violent Torpedo of Truth - Defeat Is Not an Option" tour to Atlantic City. The Trump appearance is one of 20 that have been announced so far. The first two in Detroit and Chicago are already sold out.

Sheen, who was fired by CBS last week from the network's top-rated "Two and a Half Men" sitcom, will speak to approximately 5,000 people in the Mark G. Etess Arena, as confirmed by Trump Vice President of Entertainment Steve Gietka.

"We're beyond thrilled to have the reigning top celeb in the world presented at Trump Taj Mahal," Gietka said. "He has a lot of loyal fans who will definitely be out to show their support and have the time of their lives."

Gietka said he was unsure of what the "Violent Torpedo of Truth" was all about.

"I wish I knew. Charlie Sheen -- winning -- don't miss it!" he said.

Sheen's publicist Larry Solters, of the Los Angeles-based Scoop Marketing, would not give details about the performance.

On Sheen's website, the 45-year-old's promotional video for the tour was not very informational either, but quite entertaining.

"Dogspeed my good soldiers," Sheen said. "I gave you my word. This warlock bats 1,000 percent. You know by now my promises are golden. I am bringing my ‘Violent Torpedo of Truth - Defeat Is Not an Option' show out to you in the battlefield. If you are winning, I will see you there. Trolls need not apply. You all suffer from Sheenis envy. Buy your ticket, take the ride and the ride will take you. Surge forward Sheen comrades. Ignition. Liftoff. Bye."

The ladies man and star of films that include "Platoon" and "Wall Street" has been lambasting his CBS bosses since his dismissal, interviewing with everyone from Howard Stern to NBC's "The Today Show," sometimes more coherently than others.

He has also been broadcasting a quasi-radio show on his website, where he has talked about his partying lifestyle and has even read poetry.

Sheen's Twitter status Thursday night showed the actor's eccentricity: "Born Small... Now Huge... Winning... Bring it..! (unemployed winner...)."

Sheen's announcement to the world that he is "winning" has become a national catchphrase, but it looks like the Taj Mahal will be the one really winning as the casino hopes to cash in on the actor's popularity.

Tickets, priced at $109.50, $89.50 and $69.50, will go on sale at noon Saturday at the Trump box office and Ticketmaster. According to his website, Sheen will donate $1 from each ticket to the Red Cross Japanese Earthquake Relief Fund.
