CBS Finds a Way to Replace the 'Half' in 'Two and a Half Men' LA Times
CBS is making a surprise casting move to fill time that used to be occupied by the "Half" on the hit sitcom "Two and a Half Men." The Los Angeles Times' Show Tracker reports that the network's scaling back of screen time for Angus T. Jones will be countered by the addition of a potentially permanent lesbian character named Jenny.
Jenny is the 21-year-old illegitimate daughter of the late Charlie Harper, who was portrayed by Charlie Sheen before he was fired from the show. News surfaced back in May that the show would be bringing aboard Harper's long-lost daughter.
Jones' screen time has been cut down after he publicly condemned the show last year, the piece notes. Jones went through what has been described as a high-profile meltdown that included calling the show "filth."
While the Jenny character, who will start off in a recurring role, has yet to be cast, she's said to share some traits with her father, including a love of women.
