Amber Tamblyn joins the cast of Two and a Half Men when it returns for its 11th season on Thursday, September 26.

Tamblyn (The sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, House) plays Jenny, the late Charlie Harper's (played by Charlie Sheen) long-lost daughter.

In the premiere, Jenny shows up on the beach house doorstep after moving to Los Angeles from New York City to pursue a career in show business.

During an appearance on HuffPost Live, Tamblyn said that her character is about fun, not politics.

β€œI think this is pure, unadulterated fun,” Tamblyn said. β€œIt's a sitcom. It's entertainment at its purest; fantastic writing. It's funny people doing funny things. I think that the fact that she is a lesbian is sort of the secondary conversation.” (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
