Actress Amber Tamblyn will join the cast of ‘Two and a Half Men,’ in a recurring role, when it returns to CBS on September 26for its 11th season.
Tamblyn is an accomplished actress who started her career in television by playing character Emily Bowen-Quartermaine on ‘General Hospital.’ Since then she has starred in ‘Joan of Arcadia,’ for which she received an Emmy nomination. Most recently, she filmed the CBS drama pilot, ‘Anatomy of Violence,’ where she worked opposite Skeet Ulrich.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tamblyn will play character Jenny, a young lesbian woman who is Charlie Harper’s illegitimate daughter. Jenny has moved out to Los Angeles to both pursue a career as an actress, and to meet her remaining family.
In July, creator Chuck Lorre spoke of a potential new character, saying, "I think it would be great have that voice on the show from a different perspective."
The purpose of Tamblyn’s role is to fill-in for Angus T. Jones, who now has reduced appearances on the show as he attends college. Jones, now 19, has been on the show since he was 10 years old. He will now appear only occasionally, as his schedule permits.
Character Jenny might be entertaining if she becomes the female version of Charlie Harper—charming, funny, womanizing.
