It looks as though there is going to be a major dose of NASCAR coming up on an upcoming episode of “Anger Management.” On the same day that Lindsay Lohan ironically started work on her guest-starring appearance on the FX comedy, it was revealed that there is another star with some noted “personality quirks” that is going to be joining Charlie Sheen on the set.
According to a new report from TMZ, NASCAR superstar Kyle Busch has signed on to appear in an upcoming episode as himself, and will receive some sort of counseling from Sheen’s character of Charlie Goodson. Busch does not exactly have a plethora of acting experience, but he reportedly is a major fan of both Sheen and the show, which is one of the reasons why he wanted to give the gig a shot.
While “Anger Management” is hardly a ratings monster, it is becoming known as quite a launching pad for guest stars who are either looking at getting into acting, or trying to rehabilitate themselves in some way. Cee Lo Green, for example, was in the process of developing a sitcom for NBC at the time that he decided to film a spot, and it allowed him to dip his toes into the acting world. As for Lohan, it was just an easy way to make some headlines and a paycheck courtesy of someone in Sheen who has supported her through some tough times recently.
