St. Louis, MO (KSDK) - A St. Louis man hopes to land a summer internship in Los Angeles with actor Charlie Sheen.

Mike Castro, the 23-year-old social media director at KFNS Radio, said he originally applied for the eight-week paid internship for the fun of it. 75,000 people felt the same way.

Sheen has since whittled that down to 250 people, including Castro.

"I know some people don't want to be within 10 feet of Charlie Sheen, but people who find him funny and hysterical like I do, it would be just an unbelievable experience to not only meet him and work with him, but get paid to do so, and something you can tack on to a resume, and it something where your name is recognizable."

Castro is a 2009 graduate of Southern Illinois University in Carbondale. For the next round of the competition he has to make a two minute YouTube video.
