Amber Tamblyn will add a new twist to the popular CBS sitcom "Two and a Half Men" when she joins the cast in a recurring role this fall as Charlie Harper's long-lost lesbian daughter.
The former "Joan of Arcadia" star will fill the void of Angus T. Jones, whose role was reduced to a recurring status, according to the Hollywood Reporter
. Jones literally grew up on the show during the 10 seasons it has been on the air. That leaves Jon Cryer as the last remaining member of the original cast.
Show creator Chuck Lorre, while speaking at the Television Critics Association's summer press tour in July, said he expects Tamblyn's character will give the show an opportunity to look at subjects from another point of view.

"I think it would be great to have a voice on the show from a different perspective," Lorre told reporters. "The show has had enough testosterone to last a lifetime. 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."
Tamblyn will be featured in at least five episodes of the show with an option to become a regular on the series. Her story line as the illegitimate daughter of Charlie Sheen's old character, who was killed off, will involve her moving to Los Angeles to pursue acting and connect with what's left of her family, said the Hollywood Reporter.
Her character will have the same taste of her dad's including women.
"The idea of the character brings a healthy amount of decadence, which is always fun on 'Two and a Half Men,'" Lorre said of Tamblyn's character.

In April, the Hollywood Reported first revealed that Jones was signed to a recurring role for the 11th season because he wanted to attend college. The newspaper said the actor had been unhappy with the way his character was used this season, with Jake frequently appeared via Skype after enlisting in the military this year.
Jones had to issue a public apology last November after he made controversial comments telling people not to watching the series because it was "filling your head with filth."
