Selma Blair will star opposite Charlie Sheen in his upcoming FX sitcom Anger Management, Deadline reports. Sheen plays a baseball player turned therapist, and Blair will play Sheen's own therapist and love interest, while Shawnee Smith (Becker, The Stand) will play his ex-wife. Perhaps they were enticed by Sheen's promise that there will be "no fart jokes, and dick jokes, and poo-poo jokes, and jack-off jokes"? Or maybe it was the promise that if the first ten episodes hit a certain ratings threshold, FX will immediately order another 90 episodes. Either way.
