Tamblyn will have a recurring guest role in season 11 as Jenny, a lesbian who moves to Los Angeles to pursue her dream of acting and find her family. It seems Jenny has quite a lot in common with her late dad (who was played by Charlie Sheen). Tamblyn will appear in at least five episodes of season 11, and may become a series regular after that.
Creator of “Two and a Half Men,” Chuck Lorre, says it’s about time the show got a strong female voice.
“I think it would be great to have a voice on the show from a different perspective,” he said. “The show has had enough testosterone to last a lifetime.”
Angus T. Jones’ role, the half man of the show, has been reduced to a recurring for season 11. The 19-year-old has plans to attend college, which is something Lorre encourages.
“It’s really commendable that he wants to make that the next part of his life,” Lorre said. “He misstepped last year, and it’s just not fair to judge him on that.” Lorre added of Jones’ controversial remarks slamming the hit show last year. “I certainly hope he comes back from time to time. But for now he’s embarking on a new life.”
“Two and a Half Men” returns to CBS on September 26.
