The series, which stars Golden Globe winner Charlie Sheen ("Two and a Half Men"), casts Bundy as Sheen's new sex-study research partner, Dr. Jordan Denby. The character is described as "a brilliant psychologist whose recent divorce, fondness for alcohol and wild mood swings turn Charlie's life into an emotional roller-coaster."

Bundy, who begins filming this week, replaces Selma Blair, the actress who left the series after clashing with Sheen in June. "Anger Management" has also bumped Brian Austin Green to a series regular.

Bundy, who was Tony-nominated for her performance as Elle Woods in Legally Blonde, has also been seen on Broadway in Wicked and Hairspray.
