(LOS ANGELES) — It appears Charlie Sheen really likes helping out Lindsay Lohan: she will make a guest appearance as herself in an upcoming episode of Sheen’s FX sitcom, Anger Management, according to Entertainment Weekly.
On the show, Lohan reportedly becomes a patient of Sheen’s anger management therapist character, and develops a romance with him.
The appearance can only boost Lohan’s career, which has suffered setbacks from her ongoing legal woes, and from bruising reviews for her telefilm Liz & Dick.
Last year, Sheen reportedly gave Lohan $100,000 to help cover her tax debt, and just last week he reportedly offered to pay half for a glitzy gown the troubled star later reportedly ruined after a charity event.
The Mean Girls actress and Sheen co-star in Scary Movie 5, due out in April.
Away from the cameras, Lohan still has a couple of legal headaches to deal with. She faces misdemeanor charges, including lying to police, in connection with a car crash on the Pacific Coast Highway in California last June.
TMZ.com is reporting that Lohan’s lawyer has filed a motion to seek dismissal of the charges on the grounds that she wasn’t read her Miranda rights when she was questioned by authorities after the accident. However, the website argues it was not necessary for her to be Mirandized because she hadn’t been placed in custody.
Lohan is accused of falsely claiming she wasn’t behind the wheel of the car when it collided with a dump truck in Santa Monica.
According to E! News, the court documents also seek a “continuance” in Lohan’s probation violation case, proposing that she participate in “certain activities” that will allow her to contribute to society, such as charitable endeavors.
A source says, “She’s finally made a decision to turn her life around.”
Lohan’s probation stemming from a 2011 necklace theft case was revoked as a result of the charges related to the car crash.
Another case, involving Lohan’s alleged physical altercation with a psychic at a New York City nightclub last November, is still pending.
