via press release:


LOS ANGELES – August 8, 2013 – Actress Amber Tamblyn is set for a recurring guest role in five episodes of TWO AND A HALF MEN on the CBS Television Network this fall. She will play Jenny, Charlie Harper’s illegitimate daughter who moves to Los Angeles to pursue acting and to connect with what’s left of her family. She likes everything her dad liked – including women.

Tamblyn is an actress and writer who starred in the title role on “Joan of Arcadia,” on the Network, which earned her both Emmy Award and Golden Globe Award nominations. Her other television credits include “House MD,” “The Unusuals” and “General Hospital,” among others.  Her feature film credits include “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” films, “127 Hours” and “Stephanie Daley,” for which she was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award.  Tamblyn has published two books of poetry and prose. Currently, she is writing her third book of poems about the lives of child star actresses, and she recently completed the screenplay “Paint It Black,” based on the book of the same name. She is the producer of “The Drums Inside Your Chest,” an annual poetry concert.

The 11th season of TWO AND A HALF MEN premieres Thursday, Sept. 26 (9:30-10:00PM, ET/PT).

    Cool cool cool.

    This would have been more interesting if Charlie were still alive. Is she replacing Jake?

  • lll

    She’s recurring right now, but if she catches on, she has a chance to upgrade to series regular. That means she will replace Jake (once again, if she catches on).

    And to think when news of the role first came out, they promised someone in her “Early 20’s and sexy.” Sigh, instead they settle for an actor who is 30 and bordering on fat (double chin alert). Guess the show wants to stick with nepotism for the Sheen relation as Charlie himself also only got into Hollywood because of his Dad and Tamblyn is the same.

    You do realize that most actors in Hollywood tend to play roles that are younger than their actual age, right? Also, no idea where you get this idea that Amber Tamblyn has a double chin or is bordering on fat. She’s a fairly skinny girl actually. I’d suggest you get your eyes checked. As for the nepotism comment, you are again off the mark.

    It sounds to me like you hate Two and a Half men and are trying hard to find any excuse to bash the show and its actors.
