Charlie Sheen Shut Down ‘Anger Management’ Production

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Comedy, Prime Time, FX, Gossip, Rumors,

Charlie SheenCharlie Sheen allegedly shut down production on Anger Management several times recently.

The 48-year-old actor, who parted ways with his manager, Mark Burg, entertainment lawyer, Jake Bloom, and publicist, Larry Solters, last week, was reportedly forced to miss work for two days and cut short filming this week because he developed laryngitis from partying too hard. "Filming with Charlie came to a halt last week for two days because he had come down with a nasty case of laryngitis. He was unable to talk at all last week, and has only worked half days this week because Charlie's voice isn't 100 percent. It has essentially shut down production because Charlie is in all of the scenes of the FX show," a source said.

Another insider insisted he developed the illness because he has been partying with his new girlfriend, Brett Rossi. "The reason he got laryngitis is simple. Charlie has been partying non-stop ever since Brett came onto the scene. There is a constant stream of cars coming and going from his Beverly Hills estate. It's the same pattern of behavior that led to the infamous 2011 meltdown," the insider revealed.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Comedy, Prime Time, FX, Gossip, Rumors,

Charlie Sheen and Selma BlairSelma Blair has reportedly threatened Charlie Sheen with a retaliation lawsuit.

The pair were co-stars on Anger Management before the 41-year-old actress was kicked off the show - and it is said she will take legal action if she isn't paid the $1.2 million she believes she is owed. According to reports on TMZ, Selma is demanding the payout to cover the episodes she would have made is she hadn't have been fired fro the show.

It has been said she was kicked off the sitcom after she complained about the Two and a Half Men star, claiming the crew had to wait while he was in his trailer learning lines. However, an insider defended Charlie's actions because - whereas Selma was in less than half of the scenes for each episode - he would have to learn over 44 pages of dialogue. "When you work 12 hours a day and have 3 girlfriends at home, it's hard to memorize all the lines for tomorrow," the insider said.

Charlie SheenCharlie Sheen will retire when Anger Management comes to an end.

The 46-year-old actor sees his forthcoming new comedy show as his "swan song," and rather than looking for further acting work, he is looking forward to spending more time with his five kids - Cassandra, 27, Sam, eight, Lola, seven, and two-year-old twins Bob and Max - when the program eventually draws to a close.

"When I'm done with this business it's just going to be about soccer games and amusement parks. And when [Anger Management] ends, I'm done. This is my swan song. I've been doing this 30 years. And there's a lot more out there to do than make-believe, you know? I mean, I'm grateful. I've got a dream life as a direct result of television, you know? But at some point you just get tired of wearing somebody else's clothes, saying somebody else's words and working in somebody else's space. I'm also aware of the fact that you don't get these kinds of shots in the same lifetime. You're only supposed to have one hit show, unless you're Kelsey Grammer."
