Amber Tamblyn Joins 'Two and a Half Men' as Charlie's Daughter

Amber Tamblyn

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.  

Angus T JonesAccording 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.

How do you think Tamblyn’s character will change the dynamic on ‘Two and a Half Men’?

Come on guys, age is not gust how you look, it's how you behave as well. So I have no problem believing that she could play someone between 20 & 25 years of age. As for the personality of her charactre, In her role as a person who spoke to God, she was believable and I think she could pull this off too. Besides, I want to see how the guys react to Charlies daughter being a Hot Lesbian. We all know that Evilyn (Charlies Mum) has had a few flings as a Lesbian, so she should have no problem with her as far as that goes, but accepting her as a Grand Child might be another thing. Can't wait for the return :-)

She's much older then I thought they were looking. At age 30, that would mean Charlie made her in his Teens!! I know she can play younger but She doesn't look 18-20 years old. Bad casting  IMHO.

A very bad choice for this role, I have nothing against her as an actress but I don't think that she is a good fit. I have never seen her in a role other than a person of honesty and integerity, I think she'll struggle portraying a character based on Charlie's persona.
