Sheen: FX series will be 'rocket ship to the moon'

Charlie Sheen's FX series "Anger Management" is moving full steam ahead, and the actor has told "Access Hollywood" that one actress in particular is standing out to play opposite him in the sitcom.

"Selma Blair is a strong front-runner," Sheen said. "She's a very special lady and is as pretty as the day is long and has never really had an opportunity to do something where she can shine, because off camera she is hilarious."

Blair has been name-checked as one of the two actresses testing for the lead female role in the series, which is adapted from the 2003 movie of the same name.

The series has been scheduled to air 10 episodes starting in June on FX.

"We on ['Anger Management'] will not disappoint," Sheen promised in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter. "At this stage of the game, to deliver a turd? It's not going to happen. It's going to be an absolute f****n' rocket ship to the moon."

    Sorry Charlie – I'm not interested in your new show. You've alienated yourself from most of your fans. Two and a Half Men was great with you – and I still think it's great without you.

    I can't wait to see the show. Ashton has done nothing good since that 70's show. He definitely isn't good in 2 1/2 men; boring is what he is. The only good one on the show now is Berta. Gave it a try; watched 5 episodes. Does nothing for me.
    Charlie, on the other hand, has proven himself to be a great actor, whether it be serious or comedy roles. I don't care about his personal life; but I hope it gets better and better for his sake and good health. Go get 'em Charlie; I'll be watching. I know you won't disappoint.

    I scrolled all the way down to the bottom of this page in order to leave a comment, but it is worth every pixel. Hey Sheen, you're a "has been." You're a LOSER. If you're in it, I ain't watching it. Clean up your act, maybe you'll be relevant again.

    Once, he was too big for TV. A month later, he's too small for informercials, so he moved to FX. Lame. Then again, look at the numbers that craptacilar Two and a half men show got for viewers, so I guess it doesn't really matter if people can act, or if the show just sucks. Talk about easy street (not that I'd want his problems)!

    He is a self-important loser. His lack of acting ability is only out matched by his over inflated ego. So, when does he start "winning" or is that "whining..." so hard to tell.

    Did a shot with Charlie in '90 @ Las Playas in San Antonio...he was surrounded by a lot of "hanger ons". Seemed like a good-hearted person-just needs to give up the booze, drugs,and bimbos like some of us were able to do after the '80s...he's trying to fill a void with the wrong things and people. Hopefully, one day he'll have the ability to walk away–before it kills him.
