Laura Bell Bundy announced on Tuesday she will be joining Charlie Sheen on the cast of “Anger Management” as Sheen’s character’s new research partner, Dr. Jordan Denby.
Fans on her Facebook page congratulated her, but some lamented the loss of her character Shelby on “Hart of Dixie,” and some also were not eager to watch “Anger Management.” The latter group generally said they love Bundy (or LBB as she is commonly called), but don’t have such an affinity for Sheen.
On the other hand, some were willing to give “Anger Management” a shot.
David Otte posted on Bundy’s Facebook page, “Now I’ll have a reason to start watching that show.”
Leslie LeAnn Wilson wrote: “I hope your still gonna be on Hart of Dixie? I have really grown to love your character and it would not be the same without you.”
Terrie Meyer wrote: “Love that Charlie Sheen – he is going to have his hands full with you – I can’t wait .”
Bundy, as a country singer and actress with southern roots, has a reputation for being a fun-loving kind of lady.
On Bundy’s website, she is quoted: “The motivation is not to be famous, it’s to have fun until I drop dead.”
Her site describes her as “the Mayor of Crazytown, the Ambassador of Good Times, keeper of the bourbon, Kentucky Wildcat, Heir director, mommy to the canine community, and of course, a living Jean Bonet.”
She describes her music: “I believe my music should be fun. It should be a party….a danceable, fun, flirty, joyful party. … [I want] to create the kind of music that can take people from hum drum to happy hour!”
Her acting debut came at the age of 9 in the Radio City Christmas Spectacular. She has starred as Elle Woods in the musical version of “Legally Blonde,” Glinda in the stage production “Wicked,” and in a variety of other theater and television roles.
