Lindsay Lohan to play Charlie Sheen's love interest in Anger Management

Two of Hollywood’s most volatile stars Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan will appear together in an episode Sheen’s US TV series Anger Management.

Lohan, who was previously accused of attacking a staff member at her rehab clinic, has signed to guest star as herself in the episode, reports Deadline Hollywood.

The 26-year-old Mean Girls star develops a romantic relationship with Sheen’s character Dr Charlie Goodson  after becoming his therapy patient in the drama.

Charlie Sheen, who pleaded guilty to assaulting his ex-wife Brook Mueller in 2009, has fronted the show since its inception in 2012.

He was fired from hit TV series Two and a Half Men in 2011 following his refusal to enter rehab for drug misuse.

The two troubled actors star in the forthcoming film Scary Movie 5. They became friends on set, and last year Sheen gave Lohan a cheque for a reported $100,000 in order to help her repay her tax debt.

He told Entertainment Tonight in December “I’m still waiting for a text to say ‘Thank You’. Anything, you know?”
