…she’s written as 21 years old, “sexy and gorgeous,” and gay. The new character, Jenny, will share many traits with her deceased father, including her love of women.
Jenny will be a recurring character with the possibility of becoming regular, depending on how well she “gels” with the cast (aka Ashton Kutcher, Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones). She hasn’t been cast yet but she will appear on the season premiere this fall.
Two and a Half Men has had lesbian and bisexual characters before. In 2010, Charlie took interest in a 20-year-old bisexual daughter of a woman he was dating. In 2011, Alan had a crush on Dani (Judy Greer), only to find out she was gay. In 2012, Alan’s mom (Holland Taylor) fell for Jean (Georgia Engel), the mom of his girlfriend. And Jane Lynch pops up now and again as a therapist for both Charlie (when he was still alive) and Walden (Kutcher).
This should be interesting, but I guess they must really want a new gay audience because they finally found something that might make me tune in.
