'Anger Management' looking to add a "sexy" and "neurotic" actress to the line-up

Selma Blair and Charlie Sheen

Out with the old, and in with the new. After Selma Blair exited ‘Anger Management’ without warning on Tuesday, the series has been forced to search for her replacement. The new role will begin as a multi-episode guest arc with the potential to turn into a series regular. FX has released a breakdown of what they are looking for in this replacement woman.

"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.” The role calls for a woman who is “gorgeous, sexy” and Latina or Caucasian in her 30s or 40s. This yet-to-be named woman will be Sheen’s co-author on the book created from the sex study research Sheen and Kate were working on before Blair left the series.

Blair was reportedly dismissed from the show earlier this week by Sheen through a crass text message in which he called her a “c---”. That level of maturity, in my opinion, is on par with breaking up with someone through a text message. Sheen and Blair had a tense working relationship, stemming from the actresses open questioning of Sheen’s work ethic on the series.

Are you going to miss Blair on ‘Anger Management’? Who do you think they should cast in the new role?

She is not bad looking nor a bad actress in general, but for comedy? Not so much I'd say - she managed to kill most of her funny lines, so hopefully this changeup will be for better. However good luck to her and stick to drama I guess...

I think the question should be more "who in their right mind would want the role?"
