Blair cast in Charlie Sheen's show

Selma Blair has officially joined the cast of Charlie Sheen's new TV show.

The Hellboy actress was known to be a frontrunner to star opposite Sheen in Anger Management, and Collider.com reports that she has now signed on the dotted line.

Selma will play a therapist who is a love interest for Charlie's character, and Shawnee Smith has been cast as his ex-wife.

Sheen, 46 - who was fired from hit sitcom Two And A Half Men last year - recently told Access Hollywood Live that Selma would make a great leading lady.

"She's a very special lady and is as pretty as the day is long and has never really had the opportunity to do something where she can shine, because off camera she's hilarious," he said.

He added: "I think [she's] one of the prettiest women in Hollywood."

Anger Management is based on the 2003 Adam Sandler movie of the same name, about a mild-mannered man who is ordered to attend group anger management sessions led by a therapist who needs therapy himself.

The sitcom is scheduled to debut in June.
