At War With Selma Blair
Charlie Sheen and Selma Blair are in an all out WAR on the set of "Anger Management" ... so much so, Sheen says he fired the actress and REFUSES to shoot if she comes to set today, this according to sources connected to the show.
We're told it all started when Selma complained to "AM" execs that Charlie was a menace to work with -- claiming he's late all the time and has a shoddy work ethic.
Problem is ... the actor found out about it and was super pissed. We're told Charlie felt Selma was out of line considering he's the star of the show. And he specifically referenced himself learning 40 pages of lines per episode compared to her 2.
But sources close to Sheen tell us the actor did more than just complain ... he told everyone HE FIRED SELMA altogether -- although it's unclear how official it was.
Charlie then made it clear to "AM" honchos ... if Selma shows up to set Monday -- when the show is scheduled to shoot -- he'll refuse to work.
And there's this ... we're told Charlie now wants to extend an offer to Mila Kunis (a.k.a. Ashton Kutcher's GF) for a 10 episode arch ... at $1 MILLION per episode.
As for the network honchos ... our sources say the execs are hoping it will all blow over. But we're told Charlie specifically asked FX to support him in his decision. Calls to Selma's people were not returned.

She isn't going to accomplish anything except piss off her co-worker. Who, by the way, was the driving force behind the show. It was marketed by the producers as a return vehicle for Sheen. He is such a train wreck, people were curious to watch. To the shows producers credit, it worked. They have ratings.
She clearly doesn't understand, getting known for your work ethics in show business isn't going to get you anywhere... you have to bring an audience to a show. You could be a serious asshole, to the crew and co-stars, if you bring enough people as an audience.
The ratings are boss. If Sheen drops a few points, then maybe they'd retool a show to gain some viewership back. Until something like this happens, Selma Blair has no chance.
Also, Selma has a bit of a reputation as a prickly personality. She doesn't seem to get a long with any of her costars. She also has a history of addiction as well. So I'm not sure why she would look down on Sheen. I would think she would try to get him help or intervene with some producer if she was an addict herself. It could mean she lacks empathy for him.

You guys are acting like she was anything but professional. She had an in issue with a co-worker and went to her boss. I HIGHLY doubt she expected for Sheen to get fired or even reprimanded. She probably didnt realize what an insecure prick he is, though, and thought maybe he didnt realize how inconsiderate he was being and would possibly make some minor improvements, because up until this point everyone had gotten along and Sheen had claimed a desire to be respectful of his fellow cast.
Instead, of course, Sheen takes a small professional matter and turns it into a personal attack because he is me tally ill and believes he is infallable.

First of all, Charlie's the star of the show, but it isn't "his" show. The show belongs to FX.
Second, you're basically saying that if someone higher up is being an asshole, you should just put up with it and not report them. This kind of thinking is exactly why there are so many assholes getting away with shit in the workplace.

Charlie had a rep as being liked by the crew, knowing his lines and being an all around pro. His big mistake was stepping on Chuck Lorre's toes. And especially by calling him Chaim Levine.In the case of that show, the producer won oddly enough because of his success at the company and at the network.
This time around, Slima(sic) has made a big error. She's a relative nobody in Hollywood. She's not even an artiste type. Slima should shut her fucking trap, take the paycheck and keep her head down. No sexual innuendo intended with that last remark!

It's Sheen's show, anyone else can be replaced. In a normal business, Blair would have been doing the appropriate thing (maybe). In this business, she did exactly the wrong thing and she's been around long enough to know it. She must have realized she'd be fired for this.

If Blair wanted to work in a professional atmosphere, she should have taken a job at a law firm. This was not a job at AnyJobUSA. This was a job in Hollywood, and Blair has been in that business long enough to know better than to get on the bad side of the star of the show.
She had to know he was a crackhead when she took the role. What did she expect? His reputation is well known. Wasn't a steady paycheck on a show that is guaranteed to go into syndication enough for her? Clearly, he can't change and doesn't want to. I have no idea what she was trying to accomplish.

No co-star with any self respect would be fine showing up to work and waiting three hours every day because the star was late.

I like R92's take. She may have watched Sheen spiraling out of control, knew it was going to get very bad and that none of the producers could handle the situation.
Easiest and most productive way to remove herself? Set it up so one of the producer ass-kissers does her dirty work for her. She's out clean and as R92 said, with forthcoming residuals.
A nice little side benefit is that Sheen will never trust the snitch again.

I was hoping her contract was 100 episodes pay-or-play. Who would work with Charlie Sheen for less? But I didn't think she was a big enough star to have that leverage going in.
However... to get everyone out of this mess, her reps could have negotiated that she be paid for 50 more episodes in exchange for a clean, quick break and non-disclosure.

Yes, she's right but, in retrospect, working with Sheen is like working with a lunatic, expect the worse. If he's only showing up 3 hours late, learn more of your lines, play on the internet, call your friends, I realize there's probably great boredom but CS is a diva, and bipolar, so that is what you're in for sadly.
Anyways, good luck Selma, hope you negotiated a nice paycheck for the out the door.

R102 You probably caught her when she wasn't on drugs!

People are supposing that Blair will come out well financially from all of this. It might be wishful thinking on their part.Just to get off the show and put it behind her,she might take less money.

Hope she kept the harassing texts ands go to her Union and file a suit against her "Producer" Charlie Sheen.

If she's playing this well (and it looks like she is), she already has it set up, R115.
Bad enough calling her names via text if he's a co-worker; because he's a producer, there will be financial retribution.

Deadline says she was fired by Sheen with a text calling her a cunt.
Which one of you bitches on here is Charlie Sheen?

Not Charlie, R117. There are many past winners of the Charlie Sheen Think-Alike Contest on DL.

"Just to get off the show and put it behind her,she might take less money."
cant you read? she's been fired. she doesn't have to take less money. she is getting paid out per her contract.
good for her.

R120 I know she was fired. However do you know exactly what the arrangement is monetarily and contractually? If you do please give us the details and no I'm not being sarcastic either...
|by Anonymous||reply 121||06/19/2013|
It's at the deadline link that someone else posted. implication is she is getting paid out for the full 100 episodes even though she only completed 1/2. which makes sense given the rancid text from sheen that is making the rounds (she could sue the shit out of the show with that).
good for her.

If you read between the lines, the other producers were scrambling to cover for Charlie's asshole behavior. Selma likely will come out of this much wealthier than she went in.
I'm interested in the rest of the cast if it's indeed truth that Selma was speaking for all of them.
I don't understand how anyone here thinks it's ok for Charlie to show up for work 5 or 6 hours late, star or not. How is that acceptable behavior? He's on the brink of another meltdown, I suspect.

R122 She'll never work in that town again. Her career was in the shitter already. Unless of course she hooks up with Heavy Whalestein of course. She'll be nominated for Oscars and getting millions after ahem working for him....

Are we expected to believe Charlie Sheen has that kind of power, R125?

They're paying out her contract? That's funny. I'll bet she was getting low 5 figures per episode, maybe high 4 figure. Clearly there's not much in it. I'll bet she sues for damages to milk it. Hellboy 3, huh? That sounds promising.

[quote]I should think that was work she was lucky to have.
Why? She is a successful working actor. She's not a big movie star, but most actors aren't. She took some time off to have a baby and immediately got work again. That's what working actors do.

Last night I dreamed Charlie Sheen was dating Lindsay Lohan.
The media were thrilled at the prospects.

Sheen has been in rehab for the last month at least. He did not show up for work one day and they found him in a heap and sent him to rehab. His show is not even certain that he can stay sober long enough to finish the 18 month shooting schedule they have for AM. My guess is Selma had the nerve to complain and they fired her as a warning shot across the bow. Don't say anything about Charlie, we can ruin you.
Charlie's fucked up wasted bullshit continues. Turns out Chuck Lorre was right to protect WB and his show. But then some of us already knew that.

R128, Sheen handed her the job. He lobbied for her. It's not like she was jobbing around and landed the role. He handed it to her. Why do you think they let her go so quickly?
She should've just shut her mouth and started working Charlie Sheen hours. If the star regularly shows up 4 hours late then don't be so punctual.

He should be given the same treatment that Chris Brown has been getting, if not worse. Because at least Brown has publicly apologized for hitting Rhianna and has owned up to his bad behavior.
Sheen has been getting a free ride. And to add insult to injury, the media and public thought it was completely cute when he was going on his drug induced psychotic meltdown a few years back. Nevermind that his wife at the time claimed he threatened to kill her.
And I'm not surprised about him using cunt. He pulled a similar stunt with Sean Young on Wall Street, putting a cunt sign on her back so she could be humiliated in front of everyone. All because she innocently teased him on set one day.
He has major issues with women.

No one who took a job on that show has any business complaining now.
Everyone knew exactly who Charlie Sheen was before "Anger Management" began. He was a drug-addled lunatic with a piss-poor attitude and delusions of winning. Except that he did win, he got another show. Anyone on that show works there at the pleasure of Charlie Sheen.
They took the jobs, they cashed the checks and now they're shocked, shocked to find that Charlie Sheen is working there.

Lube up and bend over. Right, R140?
Were the other actors told the producers would attempt to keep Charlie in line? Did they know he was death-spiraling again, or were the usual elaborate layers of denial in place?
When their hours were set, were they told their schedule could be turned on its head at Sheen's whim?
If I were the mother of a very young child and I was expected to be at work at a given time, I wouldn't appreciate not being able to spend time with my kid because a co-worker was hours late every day.

She tweeted the electronic equiv. of a rim-job on Monday: "Great to be back at work, @charliesheen looking so handsome," etc.--but to no avail.
Interesting that the other producers didn't want her in the first place--and that Sheen lobbied hard for her casting.
Wonder whether she was baited into making some impolitic remarks, in order to bring about the inevitable shit-storm and her firing.
She should have kept her mouth shut--and kept cashing those big checks.
