Katlin gives HollywoodLife.com the scoop about her July 12 debut on ‘Anger Management,’ including what gets her character Olivia into trouble.

Things get awkward on the July 12 episode of FX’s Anger Management when Charlie (Charlie Sheen) worries his daughter Sam (Daniela Bobadilla) is becoming promiscuous — and Sam’s friend Olivia (Katlin Mastandrea) is caught in the middle!

“She thinks she knows more than she does about this particular topic,” Katlin tells HollywoodLife.com of Olivia’s uncomfortable experience with the Goodson family. “Sometimes Sam has to whack Olivia on the head because she doesn’t know what she’s talking about.” 

Fortunately, Katlin is a lot smarter than her on-screen persona. She tells us she’s learning a lot working Charlie, who she describes as “fun,” but also “very professional.” She says things always get done “very quickly” when he’s on set because he has so much experience with multi-camera sitcoms.

And Katlin also makes good use of her downtime, always keeping a Nintendo DS or PSP handy. (A girl after our own heart!)

You probably also recognize Katlin from playing Ashley on ABC’s The Middle, which she hopes to return to next season.
