Actress and mother Denise Richards is set to guest star on ex-husband Charlie Sheen’s new FX sitcom, “Anger Management.” and says she is “really excited to be part of the show.”
Our friends at OnTheRedCarpet.com report that the series is set to debut on June 28. A teaser video was recently released and shows the actor in a coffin, in an apparent tongue-in-cheek mockery of his ousting from the hit CBS series “Two and a Half Men,” which killed his character, Charlie Harper, after he was fired amid a meltdown.
Richards will play Lori, the new business partner of Charlie’s onscreen ex, portrayed by Shawnee Smith, TV Line reported.
“Finished the table reading for #AngerManagement,” Richards Tweeted on Friday, April 13. “Funny episode! Really excited to be part of the show…”
“Anger Management” is based on a 2003 film starring Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler. In the series, Sheen plays a former baseball player, also named Charlie, who suffers from rage issues but somehow becomes an anger management therapist. Selma Blair plays another counselor who is also a possible love interest, while Sheen’s father, Martin, will play his dad.
Sheen said on NBC’s “Today” show in March that his new TV character is “flawed,” adding: “He’s an ex-ball player who had anger issues whose career ended because of an incident. And he’s a guy that just wants to give something back.”
