TV star Charlie Sheen is set to leave his troubles behind and join his Oscar-winning friend Sean Penn in Haiti as part of an aid trip.

The embattled star will raise awareness following Haiti's earthquake in 2009
The Two and a Half Men actor has said he will join Penn to raise awareness of Haiti's ongoing crisis following a devastating earthquake in January 2010.
Sheen said in a TV interview: "I'm excited as hell because, you know, if I can bring the attention of the world down there, then clearly this tsunami keeps cresting."
Last month, TV bosses stopped production of Sheen's sitcom before the end of the series after his repeated verbal attacks on its producer Chuck Lorre.
He has since made a series of interviews talking about his impending divorce, his custody battle over his twin sons and life with his two lovers.

Penn says he thinks the embattled actor could do a lot of good in Haiti,
Actor-director Penn said he thinks embattled Sheen could do a lot of good in Haiti, both for himself and the nation struggling to recover from the quake.
"I think his energies, intelligence and passion could be both of service and servicing to him, as it is to all who are touched by the struggle of the Haitian people," Penn said in a statement.
"Charlie is one of the very few public people who cannot be accused of using the media to his own benefit.
"I would very much like to show my old friend the world of needs on the ground in Haiti, and introduce him and his tremendous wit to our hard-working Haitian staff."
Penn's message of support came hours after Sheen told Access Hollywood that he and Penn were planning a trip to the Caribbean nation, although no date for their travel has been announced.
ON Wednesday, Sheen revealed his twin 23-month-old sons Max and Bob had been taken away by police.
Their mother, Brooke Mueller, had filed a restraining order alleging Sheen made death threats.
The actor has also launched his own Twitter feed, which was an immediate sensation, and by the end of the week had more than 1.6 million followers on the micro-blogging site.
Sheen said he planned to make $1m (£614,000) by the end of this year after signing with - a firm that sets up social networking endorsements for 150 brands.
"It's a cash cow," Sheen said of his Twitter page.
