Charlie Sheen’s Anger Management has at least two things in common with ABC’s The Middle: They share the same casting director, G. Charles Wright, and now an actress.


The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Katlin Mastandrea has joined the FX comedy in a recurring role as Olivia. She plays a close friend of Charlie’s 13-year-old daughter Emma (Daniela Bobadilla) -- a member of their tight college prep club. While others consider Olivia a nerd, she doesn’t agree and in fact she’s very proud of her self -confidence.


The Lionsgate-produced comedy follows Sheen’s character, Charlie, a former minor-league baseball player who becomes a "nontraditional" psychotherapist. It premieres with back-to-back episodes on Thursday, June 28 at 9 p.m. on FX.


The cast also includes Selma Blair, Shawnee Smith, Michael Arden, Noureen DeWulf, and Brett Butler in a recurring role.


Mastandrea plays the recurring role of Ashley on The Middle and has appeared on CBS’ Criminal Minds.


She’s represented by Mavrick Artists Agency and Discover Management.
