Anger Management

Charlie Sheen Felt ‘Held Hostage’ By Lindsay Lohan During Sitcom Filming

Charlie Sheen has confirmed rumors that suggest troubled actress Lindsay Lohan frequently arrived late to work while filming a guest spot on his TV show Anger Management.

The Mean Girls star, who recently teamed up with the 47-year old in Scary Movie 5, plays herself in an upcoming episode of Sheen’s popular sitcom, and the actor admitted he felt like a “hostage” on his own set because he had no control over her tardy behavior.

Recent reports suggested Lohan was often late to set and attempted to walk away with pricey jewelery from the shoot, and on Wednesday Sheen addressed the tabloid gossip during an appearance on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.

When asked whether it was true Lohan was late to work, Sheen quipped, “Not on day one… Day one, she was fabulous. She was on time; she knew her lines, hit every mark, made us look off our game… Then we had to deal with day two. It was as though she had us held hostage because she gave us half a show.”

Sheen also explained the star once showed up over two hours late after complaining of an earache: “She was really not feeling well. We worked around it. She was late, what can I say? But she got to the shoot prepared with an excuse.”

Host Leno then wondered whether any props went missing after Lohan appeared on the program, and the actor responded, “She borrowed some stuff and was told she had to pay for it and they would take it out of her check, and she said fine. That’s all it was.”

Lohan’s stint on the TV show will likely be her last acting job for the next few months – she is due to check into rehab by May 2 after pleading no contest to charges relating to a car crash in California last summer, which violated her probation on a jewelery theft charge.


Charlie Sheen’s Anger Management Headed to FX

It looks like Charlie Sheen will be back on TV next summer! FX has confirmed they picked up 10 episodes of his new sitcom Anger Management. If the show is a hit, the network will commit to 90 more episodes.

“We think that Bruce Helford, Joe Roth and Charlie Sheen have come up with a wonderful, hilarious vehicle for Charlie’s acting talents — and a character we are very much looking forward to seeing him play. ‘Two and a Half Men’ has been an outstanding component of FX’s schedule for the past 14 months, and we have every confidence that Anger Management will soon be as well,” said FX President and General Manager John Landgraf.

Anger Management is loosely based on the 2003 film of the same name. Sheen will play “a mild-mannered, non-confrontational man ordered to attend group anger management sessions led by a therapist who could probably use some anger management himself,” according to Lionsgate.

Sheen, 46, was fired from the CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men in March following weeks of bizarre behavior and a public feud with show creator Chuck Lorre. His character, Charlie Harper, was killed off and replaced by internet billionaire Walden Schmidt, played by Ashton Kutcher.
