'Two and a Half Men' Adding a New Female Character Deadline
"Two and a Half Men" is adding a new character as a series regular -- a woman in her early 20s or late teens who's the long-lost daughter of Charlie Harper, the character that was played by Charlie Sheen on the CBS comedy series, reports Nellie Andreeva at Deadline.com.
"I hear the girl will eventually move in with Walden [Ashton Kutcher] and her uncle Alan Harper (Jon Cryer). The new character is expected to fill the void left by the departure of Alan’s son Jake as Angus T. Jones recently exited as a regular after 10 seasons on the show," Andreeva notes.
Andreeva adds: "With the new addition, 'Two and a Half Men' will have subbed two of the three characters in the title, following the successful transition from original leading man Sheen to Kutcher two years ago."
Sheen was dismissed from the show in 2011 after a high-profile meltdown.
