Charlie first learns about the film from Ron who, conveniently, learned about it from Guillermo himself (they have a long and weird history and Charlie doesn't like to think about it too much).
Ron, of course, has already signed on, and he knows Guillermo's interested in Charlie for one of the lead roles.
He might have talked Charlie up a little bit, given that they've worked together for nearly six years.

Charlie tries to act normal and just says "Oh, yeah? That's cool," when inside he's jumping up and down and screaming like a pre-pubescent girl at a Justin Bieber concert.
He fires off a quick text to his agent and ignores the knowing smirk that Ron sends his way.
