Tony Award nominee Laura Bell Bundy has joined the cast of FX's "Anger Management" as a new series regular, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
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.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
