Charlie Sheen now plays a therapist on Anger Management, but he may be getting a visit from his old head doctor.

Jane Lynch, who played Charlie's shrink on Two and a Half Men, may guest-star on Sheen's FX sitcom, the star revealed at Fox's winter TV preview event Tuesday night. "We have Jane Lynch coming on, maybe," Sheen told reporters.

No word yet on who the Glee star would play or when she would make an appearance. "We're still working on those things," Anger Management showrunner Bruce Helford said. "We love her very much."

Lynch recurred as Dr. Linda Freeman for nine seasons on Two and a Half Men. Her performance earned her a guest actress Emmy nomination in 2010 — the same year she won best supporting actress in a comedy for her turn on Glee.

However, Lynch wouldn't be the only Men co-star to pop up on Anger Management if Sheen has anything to say about it. When asked about his former "half"-man Angus T. Jones and his rant against the sitcom last year, Sheen said he would welcome Jones with open arms. "I get it. It's a weird place over there and people tend to get a different perspective on life working over there," Sheen said. "I don't think he's crazy. I just think he's a little bit over-influenced in some other something, some other beliefs."

Sheen said no formal offer has been made to Jones... yet. "We're making an offer right now," he said. "Come on over, Angus." The same is true for Jon Cryer. "He's welcome any time. He's a genius," Sheen said. "I still miss him."

When it comes to the Two and a Half Men cast, says Sheen, "Come one, come all."

The new season of Anger Management premieres on Thursday, Jan. 17 at 9/8c on FX.
