In a surprisingly intelligent move, CBS has snagged Amber Tamblyn to star as the long-lost lesbian daughter of Charlie Sheen’s now absent character on Two And A Half Men. When it was leaked that Angus T. Jones would no longer be a major player in the show and that a young lesbian character would help fill the gap, I assumed that showrunner Chuck Lorre would sign up some traditionally hot gal with little-to-no talent at a cut-rate price. Alas, I was wrong. Instead, the network brass chose the well-respected yet severely underexposed Tamblyn, who’s big break came in 2003 when she starred as Joan Girardi in Joan of Arcadia— a critical success that many feel was canceled prematurely. Since that time, Tamblyn has landed roles in television and movies like House M.D., 127 Hours with James Franco and The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret, which starred David Cross, whom she married last year. Two And A Half Men now stars Ashton Kutcher (who replaced Sheen) and Jon Cryer.
