Charlie Sheen is taking it back to the '80s in a totally rad way. The Anger Management star, 49, is brushing off his leather jacket and reviving one of his earliest and most memorable roles. 

Sheen will become the famed "Boy in Police Station" from Ferris Bueller's Day Off again for an upcoming episode of The Goldbergs

Airing early next year, the upcoming episode of the '80s-set ABC sitcom will be "a love letter to Ferris Bueller's Day Off," a source tells Us Weekly. "It's hilarious."

In the beloved 1986 comedy (directed by John Hughes and starring Matthew Broderick?), Sheen played the unnamed delinquent who was found by Bueller's sister Jeanie (Jennifer Grey) hanging around in a Chicago police station. Jeanie herself had a run-in with the cops after her brother's day of shenanigans, and topped off her scandalous day by making out with the mysterious boy in the police station. 

Sheen made his cameo in Ferris Bueller's Day Off right as his career gained momentum. Just 20 years old when the now-classic hit theaters, Sheen (the son of Martin Sheen and brother to The Breakfast Club's Emilio Estevez) had previously made appearances in 1984's Red Dawn, 1985's The Boys Next Door, and 1986's Lucas

Twenty-eight years later, Sheen has slipped back into his threads from the flick. In new photos from The Goldbergs, the controversial star is shown in his zippered leather jacket, loose tank, jeans, and motorcycle boots, sitting on the station's blue couch.

Sheen's Boy in Police Station is joined in the episode by Erica Goldberg (Hayley Orrantia), the daughter of the Goldberg family. Orrantia, 20, tweeted a split photo of her scene with Sheen against his earlier go-round with Grey, writing, "It's happening! #BarryGoldbergsDayOff on @TheGoldbergsABC with @charliesheen and I! Who's excited?!" on Wednesday, Dec. 17.
