Amber Tamblyn Joins "Two and a Half Men" for Keeps
A move that is sure to surprise fans across the country, Deadline reports that one week after making her debut on "Two and a Half Men's" season premiere, as Charlie Harper's illegitimate lesbian daughter Jenny, Amber Tamblyn has been made a series regular on the long-running CBS sitcom.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the “Joan of Arcadia” actress was schedule to make appearances in only five of the show’s season 11 episodes, however, both she and the creators of the show reportedly became eager for her to become a regular.
"I think everyone wants that internally,” the 30-year-old said. “It's going to all depend on how the audience and the fans of the show react. If they love Jenny, then she'll hang around. If they don't love Jenny, then they're going to be calling Courtney Love!”
Creator Chuck Lorre also spoke about Tamblyn’s role saying, "Part of the fun in this has been creating a character that is equal to the task of stepping on the stage with Jon Cryer and Ashton Kutcher. That's a big job. The idea of the character brings a healthy amount of decadence, which is always fun on 'Two and a Half Men'."
