Amber Tamblyn will guest star as Charlie Harper's daughter in the upcoming season of the comedy series "Two and a Half Men," premiering Thursday.

NEW YORK (AP) – Amber Tamblyn played Charlie Harper’s previously unknown daughter, Jenny, on the 11th season of CBS’ “Two and a Half Men,” which premiered Thursday.

Jenny and her father (who was played by Charlie Sheen) have something in common: a love for women. She’s a hard-partying bisexual.

Tamblyn, whose TV credits include the dramas “General Hospital,” “Joan of Arcadia” and “House M.D.,” said she wasn’t sure if she was interested in appearing on “Two and a Half Men.”

She said her agent told her, “Well, hang on. It’s a genius role. ... She’s very into alcohol and women.”

Tamblyn, who has yet to see an episode of the show, said she’s amazed by its bawdy, sexual humor.

“It is very fun to play,” the 30-year-old actress said of her character. “I am shocked at what they get away with on the show.”

She said taping a show before a live studio audience is harder than doing theater “because the writers come in and they change the jokes and then you have to do it again with all new jokes. That really requires a certain type of muscle memory, and I think talent. I bow down to Jon Cryer and Ashton Kutcher and what they do. Watching them is such a pleasure.”

Angus T. Jones, who plays Cryer’s son, Jake, made headlines last year for saying the show conflicted with his religious views. He’s now on recurring status on the series.

Kutcher replaced Sheen on the show.
