We knew Charlie Sheen really wanted to get Selma Blair for his new show, and now we're hearing that he got her…
… AND Shawnee Smith!!
They'll be playing ex-wife and therapist, respectively. We couldn't think of anybody better for the roles!
Shooting starts in March, so we'll get to see Anger Management debut in June. We're just wondering if he'll be able to keep it together. He said:
“At this stage of the game, to deliver a turd? It’s not going to happen. It’s going to be an absolute f—in' rocket ship to the moon.”
We guess what we're trying to say is that anything's possible at this point, because that quote is classic Sheen, but the fact that he was able to keep quiet on the potential stars for as long as he did when they asked him to shows us he trying!
Here's the breakdown for Smith's character:
Smith will play Charlie’s ex-wife Jennifer, a role billed as a sexy woman who doesn’t exactly have it together. Married young, she never found an identity outside of Charlie. They divorced after he spent years cheating on her, but they remain close and are raising their teen daughter together.
The other woman in Charlie’s life belongs to Blair, who has been cast to play his therapist, Kate, a character described as beautiful, if a bit neurotic. As his former team psychologist, she helped Sheen’s Charlie control his anger. Now, she is both his friend and his therapist with benefits.
We hope it all works out, guys, and that you have a hit on your hands!
Good luck filming next month!
And Charlie — keep it together!
