Amber Tamblyn will join the two remaining men of Two and a Half Men on the small screen this fall.
The actress has nabbed a role on the Chuck Lorre comedy, playing Jenny, the lesbian illegitimate daughter of the late Charlie Harper (Charlie Sheen). Per the storyline, Jenny moves to L.A. to pursue a career in acting and connect with family, which includes Jon Cryer’s Alan.
Tamblyn joins the cast a little less than a month after a search for the character first began and a little more than four months after the show announced Angus T. Jones would not be returning to the show as a series regular, a move widely believed to be related to the 19-year-old former star’s now infamous YouTube bash-fest.
Tamblyn will appear in five episodes, with the possibility of becoming co-lead on the show, which currently gives Cryer and Ashton Kutcher top-billing.
Tamblyn’s most recent TV work was on Fox’s dearly departed House, where she played intern Martha Masters.
