Stars: Charlie Sheen, Selma Blair, Shawnee Smith, Daniela Bobadilla, Noureen DeWulf, Michael Arden, Derek Richardson, Barry Corbin
When FX announced its new Charlie Sheen-led comedy series Anger Management, the controversial actor's first look after the whole Two and a Half Men fiasco seemed like a no-brainer.
Sheen, who's no stranger to mood changes and temperament issues in real life, plays an ex-baseball stud (the actor actually was a legit player before making any Hollywood moves) who bangs his own therapist (Selma Blair), oversees a group of crazies as an anger management shrink, and tries to raise a rebellious teenage daughter (Daniela Bobadilla). It sounded like a role Sheen could kill in his sleep, and, most importantly, one that's quite different from his Two and a Half Men playboy.
Anger Management's producers thought otherwise, working overtime to make their once-promising show look and feel like a Two and a Half Men clone, even turning Sheen's character into a duller version of the CBS sitcom's Charlie Harper.
