Katlin Mastandrea is “winning,” at least when it comes to her career. In the last few years Katlin has popped up on everything from Criminal Minds to ABC’s more wholesome The Middle. Now she’s hopping on the tiger blood express with Charlie Sheen’s new FX vehicle Anger Management.In the show based roughly off the Adam Sandler movie, Sheen plays an anger management therapist with some former anger problems of his own. Katlin plays Olivia, the friend of Sheen’s daughter Emma on the show. Using skills she perfected on The Middle playing “Weird Ashley,” Olivia is a bit of an oddball herself.BuddyTV recently spoke with Katlin about her experience on the set of Anger Management, working with Charlie Sheen and being directed by Criminal Minds' Matthew Gray Gubler.
—Excerpt:
Could you tell us a little bit about your characters on Anger Management?A little bit, I can’t tell too much. I can say that she’s one of the best friends of Charlie Sheen’s daughter on that show. And she thinks she knows more than she really does. When exactly is your character introduced on the show?Actually the first night (June 28) they’re doing two episodes and I’m in the second. So what’s it like working with Charlie Sheen?He’s very professional and focused. Considering my group is a bunch of younger girls (well, two of us are over 18), but he still tries to watch his language and whatnot and watch himself on set. He’s very funny, just bouncing off the set with everyone. He actually gets everything done, he puts work first and then he plays. It’s not what most people would expect.

CBS TV Shows/Season Finale Sneak Peeks: Get Set for Surprises
What a season it’s been! CBS continues to dominate in the ratings and has even reached beyond its older-skewing comfort zone to debut some buzzy new comedies aimed at the young folk. As the television season winds to a close, what can fans expect on the finales of their favorite shows, and what of their chances for survival? We break down some of CBS’ favorites below:
How I Met Your Mother (One-hour finale May 14th)
This season, How I Met Your Mother has been all about the tribulations of growing older, and growing up. Ted (Josh Radnor) and Robin (Cobie Smulders) had to face the pink elephant — or in their case blue tuba — in the room when they finally addressed the lingering feelings left behind from their relationship. Meanwhile, Robin broke Barney’s (Neil Patrick Harris) heart, sending him into the arms of stripper Quinn (guest star Becki Newton). Lily (Alyson Hannigan) and Marshall (Jason Segel) tried out the suburbs but found that their hearts really did belong to New York City.
In the season finale, we’ll finally learn the answer to the question raised at the end of last season: just who is the bride on Barney’s wedding day? Earlier this year I would have put money on ex-girlfriend Nora (Nazanin Boniadi) but now it seems likely to be Quinn. But I guess you can never rule out Robin. The show has sidelined their issues recently, possibly because they’re planning to explode soon. What about lovelorn Ted? The gang advises him to go after the “one that got away.” Which of Ted’s many paramours might this be? I guess we’ll have to tune in to find out. Finally going into its final season next year, How I Met Your Mother will undoubtedly ramp up the tension with no renewals in sight. That means that very, very soon we’ll finally know who the titular mother is.
