Richards has reportedly signed on to guest star in an episode of Sheen’s upcoming FX show, “Anger Management,” which is Charlie’s first major project since.. er, involuntarily “departing” from Two and a Half Men last year.
Richards will reportedly take on the role of Lori, a business partner of Sheen’s on-screen former spouse, Jennifer (Shawnee Smith). According to a report by E!, the actress will stop by the set of Anger Management to film her episode next week.
Additionally, the report says that Richards could wind up in a recurring role on Sheen’s TV adaptation of Anger Management, provided that the show is successful enough to warrant FX green-lighting a second season.
The series, which is set to debut on FX June 28, follows Sheen’s character, a professional baseball player who just so happens to wind up in the unlikely role of an anger management therapist. Anger Management is based on the 2003 movie by the same name, though, going by what we know about the show so far, the TV series seems to be taking the idea in a different direction.
Denise isn’t the only person in Sheen’s life that will be starring on Anger Management–a recent report from The Wrap has it that Martin Sheen, Charlie’s real-life dad, will also be playing as Charlie’s dad on the show.
