‘Two and a Half Men’s Upcoming Season to Introduce Leading Lesbian Character
CBS’s hit show “Two and a Half Men” will be having less testosterone in the upcoming Season 11. Angus T. Jones won’t be returning as a series regular for the upcoming season, according to TV Line.
His spot will be filled by a new character: Charlie Harper’s (Charlie Sheen) illegitimate daughter, Jenny, a 21-year-old lesbian from New York.
“I think it would be great have that voice on the show from a different perspective,” the show’s creator, Chuck Lorre, told The Hollywood Reporter. “The show has had enough testosterone to last a lifetime.”
The character has yet to be cast and there’s no word on who might play it.
“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,” Lorre said. “The idea of the character brings a healthy amount of decadence, which is always fun on ‘Two and a Half Men.’”
Jones famously bashed the show in an online video last year.
“I don’t want to be on it. Please stop watching it, please stop filling your head with filth,” Jones said about the show on a video for the religious website Forerunner Chronicles.
Season 11 of “Two and a Half Men” premieres on Sept. 26.
