Rumors are swirling that Charlie Sheen has been missing several days of work on FX’s “Anger Management.” His absence has forced Lionsgate to delay production beyond what was planned and even use a stand-in actor for certain scenes. A source tells The Hollywood Reporter that the cast is threatening to stop working if it persists. Sources say it could be due to health issues, including a vocal chord problem. A lot is riding on the completion of 100 episodes, as the haul is expected to be between $350 and $500 million. And if the series expands to 150 episodes, a source says syndication and licensing fees could reach $800 million.
