    It looks like Charlie Sheen is causing major drama for Anger Management.

    The thesp has reportedly missed several days of work, causing Lionsgate (the show's studio) to push production back and use stand-ins for Sheen in his absence for certain scenes, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

    News of Sheen's supposed absence during production comes after Selma Blair was dropped from the show by text by Sheen last year.

    Although he didn't have the authority to make firing decisions, a source told E! News Sheen knew that the show, which received a 90-episode order from FX after its first season, couldn't go on without him.

    And he was right.

    The actress, left the FX sitcom after reportedly complaining about Sheen to producers, but "really had no problem leaving after Charlie flew off the handle" and seemed "to be at peace to be off the show," the source continued.

    Anger Management is set to generate between $350 million and $500 million in revenue if it completes its 100-episode order, according to the mag.

    Lionsgate had no comment.
