‘Anger Management’ Shocker: Selma Blair Out, Mila Kunis In?
These days it feels like we might be the only ones still following FX’s Charlie Sheen-centric ‘Anger Management,’ but the latest news from the series will certainly turn a few heads. Sheen has reportedly “fired” co-star Selma Blair over on-set disagreements, and extended an offer for sitcom vet and Hollywood A-lister Mila Kunis to join the series for a number of episodes.
TMZ first reported the bombshell, claiming Blair’s complaints to FX executives about Sheen’s work ethic sent the temperamental star into a rage, leading Sheen to tell others Blair would be let go from the show, and to ask FX to back him up on the decision. Sheen reportedly refused to show up to the set for work on Monday if Blair was present.
The report also claims that Sheen hopes to extend an offer to Mila Kunis for a 10-episode arc valued at $1 million an episode, though it remains to be seen if FX officially springs for the move. Similarly, FX reportedly refuses to take sides in the conflict between Sheen and Blair, hoping the incident blows over without any slowdown to the work.
For those unfamiliar with the state of the series, FX recently began running additional episodes of ‘Anger Management’ on FOX Mondays to promote awareness of the show, whose ratings have fallen considerably since the 2012 premiere. Blair has maintained a presence as a regular from the beginning, though with a less involved contract than Sheen’s 100-episode commitment.
