Amber Tamblyn Promoted To Series Regular On 'Two And A Half Men' After Just One Episode
Amber Tamblyn has officially been promoted to series regular on CBS’ hit sitcom Two and a Half Men after just one episode on the show. Tamblyn seemingly confirmed the news on her Instagram account, posting a photo of the report.
Tamblyn, who plays Alan’s (Jon Cryer) lesbian niece, was initially signed on to guest star in at least five episodes, with the understanding that if fans responded well to her character, she would be promoted to series regular, effectively replacing Angus T. Jones.
Tamblyn’s character, Jenny, made a splash in the season 11 premiere last Thursday, and was promoted less than a week later.
Two and a Half Men is Tamblyn’s first sitcom acting experience and before the season began, Tamblyn said that her fate on the show would be entirely up to the fans.
“It’s going to all depend on how the audience and the fans of the show react. If they love Jenny, then she’ll hang around. If they don’t love Jenny, then they’re going to be calling Courtney Love,” Tamblyn joked to Entertainment Weekly.
When asked how Tamblyn was settling into her new home with Two and a Half Men, Tamblyn said it was a dream come true:
“I pinch myself. It’s the funnest job in the world. It’s also something I’ve never really played before, so it feels new and fresh and exciting and terrifying all at the same time.”
Two and a Half Men airs Thursdays at 9:30 p.m. on CBS.
