Charlie Sheen has told "Anger Management" producers -- FIRE SELMA BLAIR ASAP OR ELSE HE'S QUITTING THE SHOW ... TMZ has learned.
We broke the story -- Charlie has been on a mission to get Selma 86'd from the show because he believes she's been complaining about him behind his back ... trashing his work ethic.
Now, sources tell TMZ ... Charlie returned to work Monday and told producers he wants the termination process started TODAY ... or else he'll walk.
It's a big threat from Charlie -- who's set to make between $75 and $200 MILLION if he completes the 100 episode order for "Anger Management" ... depending on how it does in syndication. We're told Charlie's completed roughly half of the 100 episode order.
We're told Charlie understands that there can be complications with firing someone from a TV show ... but he wants producers to begin drawing up an exit strategy for Blair by the end of the day.
Sources connected to the production tell us ... Selma was not on set yesterday, though it's unclear if she was scheduled to work.
This morning, Blair was spotted out on a walk with her kid -- and when asked about her potential termination from "Anger" she just shook her head and replied, "I don't know anything."
We're told FX network execs are currently in talks about how to handle the situation ... but it's unclear if Blair's fate has been decided.
At War With Selma Blair
6/17/2013 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Charlie Sheen and Selma Blair are in an all out WAR on the set of "Anger Management" ... so much so, Sheen says he fired the actress and REFUSES to shoot if she comes to set today, this according to sources connected to the show.
We're told it all started when Selma complained to "AM" execs that Charlie was a menace to work with -- claiming he's late all the time and has a shoddy work ethic.
Problem is ... the actor found out about it and was super pissed. We're told Charlie felt Selma was out of line considering he's the star of the show. And he specifically referenced himself learning 40 pages of lines per episode compared to her 2.
But sources close to Sheen tell us the actor did more than just complain ... he told everyone HE FIRED SELMA altogether -- although it's unclear how official it was.
Charlie then made it clear to "AM" honchos ... if Selma shows up to set Monday -- when the show is scheduled to shoot -- he'll refuse to work.
And there's this ... we're told Charlie now wants to extend an offer to Mila Kunis (a.k.a. Ashton Kutcher's GF) for a 10 episode arch ... at $1 MILLION per episode.
As for the network honchos ... our sources say the execs are hoping it will all blow over. But we're told Charlie specifically asked FX to support him in his decision. Calls to Selma's people were not returned.
Now here they are in happier (scripted) times ...

Gets D For Attendance
at 'SM5' Premiere
4/12/2013 6:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Lindsay Lohan is as predictable as a pineapple in a Mai Tai ... she showed up 40 minutes late for her "Scary Movie 5" premiere.
In fact ... she blew in 30 minutes before they rolled up the red carpet.
Her "SM5" and "Anger Management" co-star Charlie Sheen broke away from a few interviews to snap a few pics with the soon-to-be-in-rehab-but-not-until-after-she-goes-to-Coachella starlet.
Bet she won't be late when Phoenix takes the stage.
I Didn't Steal ANYTHING
I BOUGHT It
3/29/2013 9:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Lindsay Lohan says she stole NOTHING from "Anger Management" -- She's telling friends she had a deal with producers she could take all the stuff she wanted, and they'd just deduct it from her salary.
Lindsay acknowledges, she walked off with 2 bracelets, a necklace, sunglasses, a pair of shoes, gold earrings, a silk bathrobe, lingerie and tap shorts. She claims the wardrobe person was well aware she had the goods and claims the wardrobe lady specifically said it was A-OK and the cost would be deducted from her salary.
Lindsay's also telling friends, she's NOT going to return the stuff, because as far as she's concerned she paid for it.
Here's the problem. Sources from the show tell TMZ ... Lindsay walked off with the bracelets, the necklace, earrings and shoes BEFORE there was any discussion about leaving with the stuff. We're told the wardrobe person told producers she was not going to become a cop and block Lindsay from leaving the set with her stuff, so she told her the value of "all missing items" would be deducted from her paycheck.
In fact, we're told the wardrobe person actually tried to get Lindsay to write a check for the goods, but LiLo refused.
Clothes, Jewelry to go Clubbing

Sources say Lindsay told people on the show ... producers would just take the value of the items out of her salary, but we're told that ABSOLUTELY wasn't the deal.
And there's more ... Multiple sources on the set tell TMZ Lindsay was "the biggest prima donna ever on 'Anger Management.'" We're told she showed up 2 hours late the second day, refused to come out of her trailer for 2 hours, left early to go clubbing and threatened not to return.
Sources say the crew broke out in applause when she left, calling her a "nightmare."
Crackin' Community Service Jokes

It kinda reminds us of Lindsay from her "Mean Girls" days ... so we gotta ask ...
I'm in Jail
With Eddie Winslow!
3/26/2013 10:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
We've said it all along ... Lindsay Lohan can't dodge jail forever ... and our prophecy came true yesterday during one of Lindsay's scenes on "Anger Management."
But just like real life, Lindsay -- who plays herself on the show -- didn't do the jail scene as a prisoner ... we're told her character was there to do community service, hence why she's not wearing an orange jumpsuit. (Beats the morgue.)
As we reported, Lindsay -- who also does a bed scene with Charlie Sheen -- was a dream to work with ... nailing all her lines and being super nice to everyone on set.
Lindsay even posed for a bunch of pics with other cast members, including Darius McCrary ... aka Eddie Winslow from the 90s show "Family Matters" ... who does play a prisoner.
When it comes to Lindsay's acting career ... there's no contest.
NAILS 'Anger Management'
And Charlie Sheen

Lindsay Lohan had great, post-fake sex on the set of "Anger Management" Monday ... and in the process won over the entire cast and crew.
Sources on the set tell TMZ ... Lindsay's first scene featured her in bed with Charlie Sheen ... according to the script they had just had sex. We're told, "Lindsay knew her lines cold and her timing was perfect. She was really funny."
Lohan -- who showed up 45 minutes EARLY -- was "incredibly nice" and spent a fair amount of time taking pictures with the crew.
One source says Lindsay, who plays herself, "proved she has talent. You watch her and you know why she became a star."
Lindsay is back on the set tomorrow. One day at a time.
NASCAR's Kyle Busch
I Need 'Anger Management'
From Charlie Sheen
3/25/2013 6:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kyle Busch -- one of NASCAR's famous hot-heads -- has signed on for some professional help from Charlie Sheen ... on his TV show, "Anger Management" ... TMZ has learned.
Sources connected to the show tell us Busch just signed the deal -- in the last 30 minutes -- to play himself in one episode of the FX comedy. He'll be seeking counseling ... we presume for road rage ... from Charlie's character.
Busch -- the most successful driver, in recent years, for Joe Gibbs Racing -- has more than earned his nickname ... "Wild Thing" with his antics on the track ... and off.
We're told Busch wanted to do the guest spot because he's a "giant Charlie Sheen fan" ... and loves the show.
On Anger Management Set!
3/25/2013 9:47 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
TMZ NEWS ALERT: Lindsay Lohan is NOT late for work.
We repeat ... not late. Our spies on the set of "Anger Management" tell TMZ ... Lindsay showed up at 9:15 AM PT for her guest appearance on Charlie Sheen's new show.
Here's what's shocking. She was not only not late ... she was EARLY. Lindsay's call time was actually 10 AM.
What makes this especially surprising is that LiLo is coming off a party weekend -- she was clubbing in San Diego Friday night and we got her at another club in Santa Monica Saturday night.
Now all she has to do is act. What could go wrong?
