Charlie Sheen has a new ex-wife – on TV at least.
Actress Shawnee Smith has been cast as Sheen’s onscreen ex in his upcoming TV comedy Anger Management, in which the actor will play a former baseball player with rage issues who becomes an unconventional anger management counsellor.

Selma Blair is in talks to play the therapist to Sheen’s character – and it seems the actor is keen for her to land the role.

Earlier this week, Sheen told news show Access Hollywood, “She’s (Blair) a strong front runner and she’s a very special lady and I think as pretty as the day is long and she has never really had the opportunity to do something where she can really shine. Off camera she’s hilarious.”
