CBS' "Two and a Half Men" has found a woman to join the mix.
With Angus T. Jones reducing his presence on the comedy, Amber Tamblyn has stepped in to play Charlie Harper's long-lost daughter as a recurring guest star this fall.
The character, named Jenny, is being described as essentially a younger, female version of Charlie Sheen's Charlie Harper. She has the same interests as her dad - including his love for ladies - and moves to Los Angeles to be closer to her family and pursue an acting career. (Sheen's character was killed off in 2011 after Sheen was fired from the show.)
"Watch your women and whiskey," Tamblyn, 30, posted on Facebook. "I'm coming for them."
The casting change comes as Jones' Jake Harper will now be a recurring character rather than a series regular. Jones has been frank about his dislike of the series, which is entering its 11th season, calling it "filth."
"Two and a Half Men" will return to CBS on September 26.
