The former contestant on 'Dancing with the Stars' is set to portray a character named Lori, who is the new business partner of Sheen's on-screen ex on the new FX sitcom.
Charlie Sheen and his then wife Denise Richards will reunite on screen. It has been confirmed that the former "Spin City" actor has recruited the "Starship Troopers" beauty to guest star on his new show "Anger Management" as Lori, the new business partner of Shawnee Smith's Jennifer, who happens to be the ex-wife of Sheen's character.
It won't be the first time the former couple worked together since they got divorced in 2006. Richards previously appeared as Sheen's on-screen girlfriend on "Spin City" and played Charlie Harper's ex on "Two and a Half Men".
"Anger Management" itself follows Sheen's Charlie, a former baseball player who now becomes a therapist specializing in anger management. The show will not only focus on his work life, but also on his personal life as showrunner Bruce Helford described it, "It's half workplace and half personal life but there's an organic flow back and forth."
Joining Sheen and Smith in the cast line-up are Selma Blair as Charlie's therapist, who is also envisioned as a love interest for him, and Daniela Bobadilla as Charlie and Jennifer's 13-year-old daughter. The new sitcom will premeire Thursday, June 28 at 9/8c on FX with two back-to-back episodes.
