Kentucky girl Laura Bell Bundy is set to join the cast of “Anger Management” alongside Charlie Sheen, as a replacement for Selma Blair.
Blair reportedly left the show amid some drama with Sheen, who is also executive producer; the actress reportedly complained about Sheen’s unprofessionalism on set, and when he found out about it he fired her and told producers he refused to shoot any more scenes with her.
“We are confirming that Selma Blair will not be returning to Anger Management and we wish her the very best,” a rep for Lionsgate Television said back in June.
Her character, Kate–a therapist who had a rocky relationship with Sheen’s character–will be written out and Bundy’s character will move in. The former Broadway star will play Dr. Jordan Denby, Charlie’s new sex study research partner. Denby is not only a clever psychologist, she’s also a hard-partying recent divorcee who is sure to keep Sheen’s character on his toes.
Bundy is perhaps best known for her turn as Elle Woods in the Broadway production of “Legally Blonde”, but she has had several onscreen roles on shows like “Hart Of Dixie” and “How I Met Your Mother”.
