Charlie Sheen has found himself another gal--for his FX series Anger Management, that is. Laura Bell Bundy, Tony Award-nominated star of Legally Blonde: The Musical, has been cast in Sheen's comedy.

The recurring Hart of Dixie guest star will play Dr. Jordan Denby, the "new sex-study research partner" of Sheen's character, Lionsgate revealed in a press release. She's "a brilliant psychologist whose recent divorce, fondness for alcohol and wild mood swings turn Charlie's life into an emotional roller coaster."

The new casting comes two months after news broke that Selma Blair would be leaving the show due to behind-the-scenes drama with Sheen, 47.

"We are confirming that Selma Blair will not be returning to Anger Management and we wish her the very best," a rep for Lionsgate said in June. According to TMZ, the former Two and a Half Men actor threatened to leave the series if the 41-year-old actress didn't get fired.

As of Aug. 1, 40 episodes of Anger Management have aired. Since Blair's departure, FX has received a 100-episode commitment from Lionsgate.
