Lohan to star in Sheen sitcom
Lindsay Lohan is to star in an episode of Charlie Sheen’s FX sitcom Anger Management, where she will portray herself.
Deadline reports that the troubled actress will guest star as herself in an episode slated to air in April.
The 26-year-old actress will “develop a romantic relationship with Sheen’s character after becoming his therapy patient,” according to the website.
Lindsay’s role will be her first on television since she played Elizabeth Taylor in the critically panned Lifetime movie Liz & Dick.
The stars will also appear together in forthcoming film Scary Movie 5 which is also released in April.
The sitcom is in its second season and revolves around anger management therapist Dr Charlie Goodson, and co-stars Selma Blair and Shawnee Smith.
Charlie helped Lindsay pay off a tax debt by sending her a cheque for $100,000 last autumn, but the generous gesture hasn’t solved the actress’s problems.
TMZ reports that she was hit with a tax bill for $56,717.90 on Monday.
The bill, owed to the State of California, is for the 2011 tax year and follows the IRS demanding unpaid taxes for 2009 and 2010.
It is rumoured that Lindsay, who is now living at home with her mother, is so broke that she couldn’t even pass a credit check to rent her own apartment.
Meanwhile, Lindsay’s new lawyer Mark Heller has filed a motion to attempt to dismiss her latest case where she is accused of lying to police after crashing her rented luxury vehicle in Santa Monica last June.
Mr Heller claims Lindsay was not read her “Miranda rights” after her car accident last summer.
The star is accused telling authorities she was not driving her Porsche on the Pacific Coast Highway at the time of the accident, but her former assistant Gavin counters the actress’ claims.
However, according to TMZ, there was “no need” for police to read Lindsay the rights as she was not in custody.
They add it is “perfectly legal to question people involved in a car accident without reading them their rights.”
The troubled actress faces 245 days in jail.
