Sean Young joins 'Celebrity Rehab' -- EXCLUSIVE

Dr-Drew-Sean-YoungImage Credit: Evans Ward/VH1; Rick Stephens/PR PhotosBlade Runner actress Sean Young is running to Dr. Drew: EW has learned exclusively that the actress has joined the season 5 cast of Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew. Young joins previously announced cast members Michael Lohan, Bai Ling, Michaele Salahi, Jeremy Jackson, and Amy Fisher. Also set to enlist Dr. Drew Pinsky’s help: Former Guns ‘N Roses drummer Steven Adler.

This will not be Young’s first foray into reality television: The actress — also known for her work in Dune, No Way Out, and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective — just finished a stint on Skating With the Stars. The series, however, wasn’t Young’s shining moment — the actress was the first eliminated. (Rebecca Budig won the series.) Young has also experienced a few other public embarrassments throughout her career: She famously dressed up as Catwoman in an attempt to convince director Tim Burton to cast her in the role (he didn’t), and faced a lawsuit from The Boost co-star James Woods, who claimed Young harassed him and his then-fiancĂ©e. (Young denied Woods’ claims, and the suit was settled out of court.) Vh1 is not commenting on the nature of Young’s addiction. For more on Young, read Karen Valby’s fascinating 2008 EW feature on the actress.

    It is alcohol.

    • Chaz Winterbottom

      And winning! Winning is the new exhaustion.

  • lmb

    Another Y&R actor? Is Victor Newman driving everyone to drink?

    • Flip

      If it gets her OFF MY Y&R SCREEN, I’ll be happy!!!

      • Jessica

        Flip, I was going to say the exact same thing! She’s an awful actress. The only reason she got the job is because she’s friends with Eric Braeden. Please, go away Meggie!

    • Jeannie B

      Ironic that her character (Meggie) was driving Nikki to drink on Y&R.

  • KC

    She could win mad points if she showed up in that homemade Catwoman suit she wore to Tim Burton’s office years ago.

    • Jeannie B

      Have you seen her lately? She’d never fit into it now.

  • Mike

    Michaele Salahi and Michael Lohan? Seriously . . .

    • darclyte

      I was thinking the same thing. Way to go with feeding their need for attention and fame, Dr. Drew.

  • Elizabeth

    Dear Dr. Drew:
    Your show is the equivalent of Celebrity Apprentice & Dancing With The Stars. Can’t take any of this seriously anymore.

    • Zach

      Was it ever serious?

  • Huh

    I hope she finds the help she needs–despite Dr. Drew.

  • Kat

    I’m sorry but all these people who complain about the casts of these shows need to just realize that “celebrity” has changed and will forever be changed. If a person was on a reality show, or is widely known for something (even if it is rediculous) they are a celebrity. It’s not called “A-list actor/singer rehab”. Get used to it. Besides, the show is meant to help people, why be against that?

  • Bravo watcher

    I don’t know if I can watch this time with Michael Lohan part of the cast… I don’t think I can feel sorry for him.

    • TylerMure

      Agree. He needs to be on deserted island -OUT OF THE SPOTLIGHT. WHEN IS HE GOING AWAY?

  • Jon

    I can’t believe this show has become yet another reality TV show for has-beens to use to get their mugs on TVs again. So it’s even worth it to humiliate yourself on a rehab show to get a little airtime. What’s sad is that some of the people on this show have actual drug problems — and they endure this nonsense for the money Drew bribes them with. If Drew ever actually had any credibility, it’s gone.
    And to be fair, I hardly think Sean Young’s Catwoman incident is exactly infamous. I don’t think anyone even remembers it.

  • Pets

    Yikes and YUK. I can’t get the image out of my mind when she was in Pet Detective and tucked her ‘penis’ behind her.

  • Glenda

    Except for Sean Young, I have never heard of any of the other participants. Must be celebrities in outer Mongolia. Or neighbors of Charlie Sheen.

  • Brandon

    It’s so ironic that Dr. Drew has become an enabler. Good job guy!

  • Chris

    What the hell has happened to VH1? It’s become one of the trashiest channels on TV. Why does this crap have to be televised?

  • Shiny

    I’ve often wondered why Sean Young faded from the spotlight at such a young age. She did start young but her last decent role was No Way Out (much as I love Ace Ventura it’s hardly a career high for Sean). Sad to see our Rachel had such a rough life.

  • Shiny

    Interesting ’07 article on Sean; I hope she’s able to make a comeback.
