Amber Tamblyn is joining the cast of Two and a Half Men for the series' 11th season. Tamblyn will play Charlies Harper's long-lost daughter, according to The Hollywood Reporterfilling the void left by Angus T. Jones

Jones solidified his departure from the show after referring to the sitcom as "filth" in an intverview last year. He later apologized and completed the season, and his role was reduced to recurring appearances.

Random Notes: Hottest Rock Pictures

Tamblyn got her start on General Hospital. Her TV roles have also included a starring turn as the title character on Joan of Arcadia, and she appeared on House. She will play the illegitimate daugher of Charlie Sheen's former character, who moves to L.A. to connect with her father's family while pursuing an acting career. Tamblyn's character is also a lesbian, and executive producer Chuck Lorre thinks it's a good new direction for the show. 

"I think it would be great to have a voice on the show from a different perspective," he said at the Television Critics Association press tour. "The show has had enough testosterone to last a lifetime."

Two and a Half Men will return to CBS on September 26th.
