A troubled starlet may be paying her benefactor back with a guest appearance on his TV show.
Lindsay Lohan will star in Charlie Sheen’s FX comedy “Anger Management,” playing herself. The two will have a romantic relationship, with Lohan playing a patient of Sheen’s character.
Sheen and Lohan recently worked together on “Scary Movie 5,” then the “Major League” star gave Lohan, who owes a bunch in back taxes, $100,000.
Sheen said the idea was to “pay it forward,” and was later quoted as saying, “I’m still waiting for a text to say, ‘Thank you.’ Anything, you know?”
Lohan starred in “Freaky Friday” and “The Parent Trap” before having a more grown- up break- out in “Mean Girls.” Since then she has been in the headlines for all of the wrong reasons, and most recently appeared in “Liz & Dick” on Lifetime where she played Elizabeth Taylor to critical non- acclaim.
Sheen also famously fought with the creator of “Two and Half Men” on his way out of the show, after which he started on “Anger Management.”
“Anger Management’s” recently started second season had done decent- ish ratings, which were quite lower than last season’s. Both the episode they appear in and “Scary Movie 5” (where Lohan and Sheen’s characters also hook up) will both debut this April.
