The Liz Sherman of 'Hellboy' lands a role as Charlie's therapist/love interest, while the former 'Becker' star is set to play his ex-wife on the upcoming FX sitcom.
After weeks of searching, "Anger Management" has finally found Charlie Sheen's co-stars. Selma Blair and Shawnee Smith have landed female lead roles on the new sitcom, with the former tackling the role of Charlie's therapist and the latter being tapped to play his ex-wife.
Blair's character Kate is described as beautiful, if a bit neurotic. Helping Sheen's character control his anger, she is also envisioned as a love interest for him. Smith's Jennifer, meanwhile, is a sexy woman who is searching for a life path after divorcing from Charlie, who cheated on her for years.
Blair had her latest regular role on "Kath & Kim" where she played one of the titular characters. As for Smith, she is best known for her roles as Amanda Young in "Saw" films and as Linda on "Becker".
Sheen, along with his recently cast co-stars, will start filming "Anger Management" in March, for a June premiere on FX. There is still no word on who will take the other female lead role, which is Charlie's 13-year-old daughter.
