After firing his co-star Selma Blair via text message, Charlie Sheen was looking for a new series regular for Anger Management. The role has gone to Laura Bell Bundy, according to Entertainment Weekly.
According to Huffington Post, Bundy will play Dr. Jordan Denby, “a brilliant psychologist whose recent divorce, fondness for alcohol and wild mood swings turn Charlie’s life into an emotional roller coaster.” Jordan will be Charlie’s new partner for the sex study he began with Kate (Blair).
After the loss of Blair, producers were seeking a “gorgeous, sexy Latina or Caucasian actress in her 30s or 40s” to play a fellow psychiatrist to join the sex study research. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Bundy’s character was described with the following: “If Charlie and Kate were like Sam and Diane on Cheers, then you are Rebecca. Tough, career driven, neurotic and you wear your heart on your sleeve. And you hate yourself for eventually becoming attracted to Charlie.”
Anger Management airs Thursdays at 9:30 p.m. ET on FX.
