Earlier this summer, one of the larger headlines when it comes to Charlie Sheen, somehow even more so than the fact that he is now living with three “goddesses,” was the departure of Selma Blair from “Anger Management” under pretty intense circumstances. The word on the street was that she was dismissed after Sheen heard her questioning his worth ethic behind his back. (Now, TMZ is reporting that Blair may sue for the remainder of her salary unless it is paid to her.)
But Sheen, meanwhile, has quite a different story. Appearing this week on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” he claimed that the decision to cut Blair and her character of Kate was simply a creative choice to give his own Charlie Goodson more to do:
“One of our primary characters, Selma Blair, who played Kate, was written out because (the show) was not about our relationship, and the problem was too many people were still excited about the ‘Two and a Half (Men)’ character and thinking the ‘Anger Management’ character was a little dull … So, um, that is not the case anymore … She leaves, and I start circling the drain. It’s really fun to watch and hella fun to play.”
We suppose what you want to believe here is surely up to you, but we will at least give Sheen credit here for one thing: He’s right about his character being boring. There was nothing interesting about this Charlie at all, and the show was almost too structured, with everyone in their regimented roles. We hardly think that “Anger Management” 2.0 is going to be a hit by any means, but it may be a little bit funnier. (But still none of this was Selma’s fault.)
