Anger Management is getting a little help from a former 90210 heartthrob.
Brian Austin Green previously appeared on the FX sitcom as the boyfriend of Charlie Goodson’s ex-wife. It’s now being reported that the actor is being added as a series regular.
According to The Wrap, the folks behind Anger Management have decided to make Green’s character a regular on the comedy. The website also reports the actor’s addition to the show is the latest attempt to reinvigorate the formula.
Although the series got off to a good start when it debuted in June of 2012, the ratings haven’t remained as strong as the network would like. As a result, producers are attempting to inject some new blood into the series.
Deadline reports that Brian Austin Green originally appeared in the first episode of Anger Management. Since his introduction, the character has also appeared off and on over the course of the series. However, now it appears Green will have a much larger role on the show.
Although Green is probably best known for his work on 90210 — the less said about his rap album, the better — the actor recently appeared on a handful of programs. His credits include Happy Endings, TBS’ The Wedding Band, and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
The series is also contending with the departure of Selma Blair. After getting into a feud with star Charlie Sheen, the actress eventually parted ways with Anger Management. Details about her departure are few and far between.
The Inquisitr previously reported that the search is currently on for a “sexy” new actress to take Blair’s place. Although rumors suggested Mila Kunis was being courted for the role, a recent casting call suggested showrunners are looking for an actress between the ages of 30 and 40 to fill the vacancy.
