“Two and a Half Men” has added a woman!
“The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” star Amber Tamblyn will join the CBS sitcom in the role of Jenny, the long-lost, lesbian daughter of Charlie Harper (played by former “Two and Half Men” star Charlie Sheen), ABC News confirmed.
According to Deadline, Tamblyn’s character will appear in five episodes, and if she resonates with viewers, she could become a co-lead in the show, alongside Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer. (Angus T. Jones, who played Cryer’s son, will not return as a series regular.)
Series creator Chuck Lorre told reporters at the Television Critics Association’s summer tour that “the show has had enough testosterone to last a lifetime.”
“I think it would be great to have a voice on the show from a different perspective,” he said. “Part of the fun in this has been creating a character that is equal to the task of stepping on the stage with Jon Cryer and Ashton Kutcher. That’s a big job.”
“The idea of the character brings a healthy amount of decadence,” he added. “[That] is always fun on ‘Two and a Half Men.’”
