LOS ANGELES (AP) —  Sean Penn says he thinks Charlie Sheen could do a lot of good in Haiti, both for himself and the nation struggling to recover from a devastating earthquake.

The Academy Award winner says in a statement that he’d like to “show my old friend the world of needs on the ground in Haiti.”

Sheen told a television reporter that he and Penn were planning a trip to the Caribbean nation, although no date for their travel has been announced.

Penn says, “If he chooses to give support, I’ll trust it.”

Sheen, who has been on a media blitz since Monday, says he would like to bring the attention of the world back to Haiti, where Penn has been a fixture since a January 2010 earthquake destroyed more than 500,000 homes.
