Charlie Sheen to reprise "Ferris Bueller" role on "The Goldbergs"

Way before Charlie Sheen was a movie star, the lead on "Two and a Half Men" or "#winning" -- he was the mysterious guy in the police station in "Ferris Bueller's Day Off."

According to People, Sheen, 49, will be paying homage to his "Boy in the Police Station" character from the 1986 classic in an upcoming episode of ABC's "The Goldbergs."

Sheen is bringing back the role nearly 30 years later. In the original scene, the leather jacket-clad rebel is told off by Jeannie (Jennifer Grey).

Airing in early 2015, the episode will follow the character Barry as he fakes sick in an attempt to have his own day off.

"The Goldbergs" airs Wednesdays at 8:30 p.m. ET on ABC, with new episodes coming in early 2015.

Here's the original clip in all its glory:
