As speculation that he is the mysterious Hollywood actor who is HIV positive and has still continued to sleep with several women continued to mount, Charlie Sheen is preparing to do a live interview on the Today Show.
The actor has repeatedly been the name most floated around since rumors first began last week that an A-list actor in Hollywood was HIV positive, though there has never been official confirmation on whether the rumor itself is actually true, or if Sheen is the actor in question.
Now, Today has announced that the actor will make a "personal announcement" in a live interview with them on the Tuesday, Nov. 17 episode of the show, where he will sit down in a one-on-one with Matt Lauer.
No other details have been announced about the interview, or what Sheen will reveal during it.
The news of an actor with HIV first broke earlier this month, but the story has blown up in recent days since being picked up by both The Daily Mail and The Sun, which reported that the A-list actor was worried about coming forward because he was afraid he would no longer be remembered for his work, and only his diagnosis.
However, while none of the publications who have reported on the story have given the actor's name, several details revealed in the stories have led many to believe the actor in question is Sheen.
His name being floated around did lead to the actor initially considering legal action against sites like The Dirty, though sources there have since confirmed that the actor is no longer doing so.
Lawyer Marty Singer told us @charliesheen is no longer threatening legal action against The Dirty over the original HIV submission posted.

Among the exes the actor reportedly counts in his ranks are an award-winning actress, a religious movie star, a top Hollywood personality with a controversial past, a TV star, a media personality and a glamour model.
