Charlie Has Found His Nemesis
Huffington Post - over 3 years
"Anger Management" has promoted Brian Austin Green to series regular status, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The news comes little more than an hour after THR reported that the show was seeking a "male foil" for Charlie Sheen's character Charlie Goodson, an anger management therapist dealing with his own issues in that area. Instead of casting a new nemesis for Charlie, the FX comedy has chosen to make further use of Green's character, Sean, the boyfriend of Charlie's ex-wife Jen (Shawnee Smith), who has appeared in three previous episodes. Additionally, the show is looking for a female potential regular to replace Selma Blair, who left following a disagreement with Sheen that reportedly resulted in the actress being fired via text message. Producers are reportedly seeking a "gorgeous, sexy Latina or Caucasian actress in her 30s or 40s" to play a fellow psychiatrist who will join the sex study research that Charlie and Blair's character Kate were working on be ...

Denette Wilford: Charlie Sheen Doesn't Lose His Sheen With 'Anger Management'
Huffington Post - over 4 years
I've never understood the love for "Two and a Half Men." In its heyday, when it was garnering tens of millions of people tuning in, I was baffled. Flabbergasted, even. I hated it when Charlie Sheen was the star, and even though I didn't think it would be possible for it to get worse, Ashton Kutcher made sure that happened. So I had low expectations going into "Anger Management," which made its CTV debut after the Olympics closing ceremony on Sunday. (Yes, if you have access to FX, then you watched it a couple of months ago and this is old news.) But if you're like me and you get your favourite shows from a satellite feed that doesn't carry the cable channel, then read on. Despite the dreaded laugh track, I didn't chuckle or snicker once -- but I did smirk whenever Brian Austin Green spoke, because no matter how much he's grown up and how tatted he's become, he'll forever be David Silver. (Sorry, BAG!) But perhaps because I expecting very little, I didn't hate it. I know ...

'Anger Management': Charlie Sheen Optimistic About 90-Episode Pickup; Reflects On 'Crazy Time', Denise Richards At TCAs
The Huffington Post - over 4 years
Charlie Sheen's "Anger Management" is well on its way to 100 episodes, despite the fact it's only halfway through its first season. Due to the sitcom's unique business model, if the first 10 episodes reach a certain ratings threshold, FX is set to renew the series for 90 more installments. With the show breaking ratings records, it looks like Sheen will be a permanent fixture on TV screens for a few more years, at least. (Opinions on whether that's a positive thing or not are still divided.) The troubled star appeared at the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour on Saturday, promoting the cable comedy alongside creator Bruce Helford and co-stars Derek Richardson, Noureen DeWulf, Selma Blair, Shawnee Smith and Daniela Bobadilla. Predictably, the majority of reporters' questions were directed at Sheen, and a fair number concerned his tumultuous few months after being fired from "Two and a Half Men," when he embarked on an ill-advised publicity tour. When asked ho ...
