Ever since Charlie Sheen got Selma Blair fired from Anger Management for complaining about him, the show has been searching for a replacement love interest for his character.
Now, at last, their search is over as they’ve picked their co-leading lady, Laura Bell Bundy. You might not recognize her name immediately, but she’s the star of Legally Blonde: The Musical. FX released a statement about who exactly her new character will be.
She’s “a brilliant psychologist whose recent divorce, fondness for alcohol and wild mood swings turn Charlie’s life into an emotional roller coaster.”
You may remember the original casting call for the role:
“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.”
If she likes alcohol and has mood swings, then she should probably be perfect for Charlie, I’d imagine. That said, no word on how long she’ll last before Charlie flips out on the actress and we have to start this search all over again.
