Laura Bell Bundy Replaces Selma Blair on Anger Management. Who Is She?
Charlie Sheen got rid of Selma Blair, and has already chosen her replacement.
Laura Bell Bundy will play Charlie Harper's new sex study research partner Dr Jordan Denby on the FX's Anger Management, replacing Selma Blair.
Described as a "brilliant psychologist whose recent divorce, fondness for alcohol and wild mood swings turn Charlie's life into an emotional rollercoaster," Bundy's character will make her debut this year. She begins shooting this week, according to industry publication The Wrap.
The actress is probably best known for playing Shelby on The CW's 'Hart of Dixie,' though also played a recurring role on CBS' How I Met Your Mother and appeared on the day-time soap Guiding Light.
She actually originated the role of Elle Woods in Legally Blonde on Broadway, which earned her a 2007 Tony Award nomination. Oh, and she's also a country singer-songwriter and is currently on tour with Rascal Flatts.
According to the New York Post, the volatile Sheen fired Blair from Anger Management in June when he learned she was complaining about his work ethic.
At the time, Deadline.com's Nellie Andreeva wrote, "I hear Charlie Sheen "fired" her [Blair] via text, in which he called the actress a "c-t". And it was not the only abusive, expletives-filled text she had received from Sheen, who also serves as an executive producer on Anger Management. I also hear that Blair was not the only member of the show's cast and crew that was frustrated by Sheen's work habits as I hear they would often sit and wait for hours for him to show up for work."
The show premiered to huge numbers in 2012 though has cooled off dramatically in the last six months.
