Selma Blair's Future on 'Anger Management' in Limbo as Execs Try to Patch Things Up With Sheen Deadline
Selma Blair's future on the FX comedy "Anger Management" is reportedly in limbo, as executives try to make peace after Charlie Sheen expressed his determination to fire the actress, reports Nellie Andreeva at Deadline.com.
As previously reported, Sheen reportedly "fired" Blair from the show, after she apparently complained to executives that he is hard to work with.
"This is a move brimming with irony, starting of course with the name of the show as the dismissal attempt reportedly stemmed from Sheen getting enraged over comments made by Blair that questioned his work ethic,” Andreeva writes. “Also, Sheen actually went to the mat for Blair in the original casting process. She was his choice, he spoke very highly of her in TV interviews and, despite FX not going with Blair in the role of the therapist after the final round of auditions, Sheen made a push and got her the part."
Andreeva adds: "There is no official word on Blair’s status on the show with everyone involved keeping mum, but in a recent tweet posted on the show’s first day back from a monthlong hiatus for creative tweaking in light of the recent ratings slump, Blair was more than complimentary of Sheen: ‘Thanks for a great day back @charliesheen. You looked pretty darn handsome.’“
