The ‘new cast member’ process on two of the most notable credits in Charlie Sheen’s recent career has been completed, with both former series (Sheen’s former show Two and a Half Men and current sitcom Anger Management) having each introduced a new female co-star that will come into play in future episodes.
For CBS comedy Two and a Half Men, the previously-reported replacement for ‘half man’ Angus T. Jones (playing ‘Jake’) will be Amber Tamblyn (Joan of Arcadia, House, 127 Hours) as ‘Jenny’, the ‘long-lost lesbian daughter’ of the now-deceased former homeowner ‘Charlie Harper’ (Sheen).
Set to hit screens in the season 11 premiere on 26 September, Jenny will arrive in Los Angeles from New York City with typical dreams of ‘becoming an actress’, only to find the home she planned to stay in owned by Ashton Kutcher’s internet billionaire ‘Walden Schmidt’. She will be a part of the show for an initial 5 episodes, having the option to become a full-time part of the series (with the controversial Jones now being demoted to a recurring guest star).
Two and a Half Men‘s creator and executive producer Chuck Lorre said of the new character: “She’s somewhat of a chip off the old block. She’s having a good time and doesn’t care about the destruction left behind her. Decadence from the other side felt long overdue.”
Over at FX, meanwhile, Anger Management have also been recruiting, with the therapeutic sitcom now set to have singer and actress Laura Bell Bundy (Jumanji, Hart to Dixie, Watercolor Postcards) playing opposite Charlie Sheen’s lead role of ‘Charlie Goodson’.
Replacing Selma Blair’s character ‘Dr. Kate Wales’, Bundy (pictured) will portray ‘Dr. Jordan Denby’, a ‘researcher who studies human sexuality’ with Goodson, and away from her work is a ‘booze-loving divorcee’ that ‘brings turmoil’ into the life of Charlie. Hoping to add to her critical acclaim in the stage and music industries, will she be able to pull off a good performance as Charlie Sheen’s newest sidekick, or will there be calls for her to resign as a ‘doctor’ and stick to what she knows:
