Following Charlie Sheen's announcement that his real-life dad, Martin Sheen, will play his dad on "Anger Management," the actor is making his new FX comedy more of a family affair: Sheen's ex-wife, Denise Richards, will guest star in an episode of the show.
FX confirms to TheWrap that Richards will guest star on the series, which is set to premiere on the network on June 28.
Richards will play Lori, a new business partner for Sheen's on-screen ex, played by Shawnee Smith, TVLine.com reports.
"Anger," loosely based on the movie comedy of the same title, will star Sheen as Charlie Goodson, a former pro baseball player who deals with his own anger issues by becoming an anger management therapist once his sports career ends.
Selma Blair plays his love interest, a fellow therapist. In addition to Richards and Martin Sheen, the cast for the first season will also include "Grace Under Fire" star Brett Butler as a bartender at Charlie Goodson's favorite restaurant.
Richards, who has two daughters with Sheen from a four-year marriage that ended in 2006, is also starring in Lifetime's upcoming "Blue Lagoon" movie remake. Richards plays the mother of Indiana Evans, the actress portraying a high school teen who gets lost on a deserted island with one of her male classmates.
