‘Anger Management’ Season 2: Jane Lynch, Other ‘Two and a Half Men’ Stars to Guest?
With an additional order of 90 episodes, FX and Charlie Sheen’s ‘Anger Management‘ has quite a bit of time on its hands to recruit big-name guest stars into the fold. It isn’t yet known how the additional episodes will be structured into seasons, but the show will definitively return for its next cycle on Thursday, January 17 with all-new episodes. ‘Glee‘ and former ‘Two and a Half Men‘ star Jane Lynch is rumored to make an appearance over the course of the new season, but will major ‘Men’ stars like Jon Cryer or Angus T. Jones quickly follow?
We’re little over a week before the return of Charlie Sheen’s ‘Anger Management,’ now featuring Charlie’s real-life father Martin Sheen as a series regular, and already the guest star rumors are flying. Most prominently, Sheen told reporters at FOX’s winter TV preview event that “We have Jane Lynch coming on, maybe.” Show-runner Bruce Helford confirmed Lynch’s appearance, but couldn’t describe the role yet. Lynch previously recurred over nine ‘Two and a Half Men’ seasons as therapist Dr. Linda Freeman.
Additionally, Sheen maintained that former ‘Two and Half Men’ co-stars Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones would of course be welcome to make ‘Anger Management’ appearances, though nothing firm had been set. On the subject of Jones’ prior religious comments about ‘Two and a Half Men,’ Sheen said “I get it. It’s a weird place over there and people tend to get a different perspective on life working over there. I don’t think he’s crazy. I just think he’s a little bit over-influenced in some other something, some other beliefs.”
What say you? Would you want to see more ‘Two and a Half Men’ stars appearing on ‘Anger Management?’ Will you tune in for the second season on January 17?
