Don't cry for Angus. He's the richest kid in L.A., unless he gives all his TV earnings away to a cult.

by Anonymousreply 208/09/2013

Jones will still appear occasionally I believe.

by Anonymousreply 308/09/2013

No one will notice the difference.

Has Amber done comedy before?

by Anonymousreply 508/09/2013

R1, why would they cancel the show? It's still making truckloads of money for CBS and Warner Bros. I'm not vouching for the quality, but it's a cash cow -- and CBS and WB are businesses.

by Anonymousreply 608/09/2013

The only times I have ever watched this show was when I was channel surfing and saw Holland Taylor. I like her, but the show was beyond lame. However, Amber Tamblyn as a horny dyke sounds kind of interesting. Of course given CBS's demographics, I doubt they will do it well.

"...playing Jenny, the lesbian illegitimate daughter of the late Charlie Harper (Charlie Sheen)."

I assume she'll play one of those soft butch lesbians who sometimes stuffs her pants with quarter length athletic socks.

Really good choice!

What the fuck happened to her career!

Ten years ago, in September 2003, CBS premiered [italic]Joan of Arcadia[/italic]. Amber Tamblyn won the Golden Globe. She was nominated (and should have won) the Emmy. Years later, she does the dying [italic]House[/italic], and now she's about to do the rigor mortis [italic]Two and a Half Men[/italic].

What a disappointment!

I never watched the show, but it's great to see that no-talent ugly little fat fuck gone. Nothing personal kid.

by Anonymousreply 1108/09/2013

R10 - I think she does not aspire to the ,limelight. She's made a few good indie pictures like Spiral. She also does poetry readings. And of course is married to David Cross.

by Anonymousreply 1208/09/2013

David Cross is a wack-a-doo. I don't know what that says about Amber.

by Anonymousreply 1308/10/2013

Oh, I get it. She's a lesbian, so that must make her half man. This show has managed to sink to new depths WITHOUT Charlie Sheen. Impressive.

by Anonymousreply 1408/10/2013

Don't worry, R14, a lot of people hate the show now.

by Anonymousreply 1508/10/2013

Amber talks about her character.

" ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Tell me about your character, Charlie Harper’s long-lost daughter.

AMBER TAMBLYN: Her name is Jenny, and she is a fun, playful, debaucherous character. She’s unapologetic and enjoys drinking Ashton Kutcher’s character [Walden] under the table. Literally, at some point, he’s gonna be under the table, and there’ll be a joke about that.

You describe Jenny as unapologetic, which also seems to describe what her father was like. Does she share any other character traits with him?

Yes, very much so — her love for women. She’s super into the ladies, and that’s something that is a recurring thing. I think I’ve seen more bras and panties at this point than I have in 20 years of my career. And I ain’t complainin’.

by Anonymousreply 1609/27/2013

[quote]What the fuck happened to her career!

She is 30 and has been a working actor since she was 12.

She's a published poet - which is probably more rare than a working actor.

I'm not sure exactly what you find disappointing?

Amber Tamblyn is a really unfortunate name.

Final season. Moving on.

by Anonymousreply 2009/28/2013

Yet another lesbian character on tv.. not exactly surprised. And to have her as a horny dyke.. again, not surprised. Wake me up when they have the balls to add a gay (male) character.

When is the Steve Jobs movie going to be released?

by Anonymousreply 2309/28/2013

What is the story with Lady Miss Butthurt at r21 who always crops up to complain that lesbians are better represented on TV than gay men? Plenty of TV shows today feature gay male characters--probably just as many or even more shows than feature lezzies. Perhaps r21 just needs to get over his need to be the victim in every situation.

Angus T. Jones sounds like something you'd order in an upscale steakhouse. "I'll have the Angus T. Jones, medium rare, with a side order of hash browns and the creamed spinach."

by Anonymousreply 2509/28/2013

Amber has put on some weight, but carries it well.

by Anonymousreply 2609/28/2013

I liked the show before but I believe it is time to pull the plug. Ashton could not save it and the character of Alan is now a cartoon.

by Anonymousreply 2709/28/2013

Everything you had to say after "I liked the show before" became meaningless, r27.

by Anonymousreply 2809/28/2013

Angus was the funniest character on the show. He had some great lines and executed them well.

by Anonymousreply 2909/28/2013

The series is cursed. One and a half of the two and a half men went cray cray.

by Anonymousreply 3009/28/2013

SO 1 dyke equals one half man. how many gays equals one dyke

Take this show out back and put a bullet in it already.

by Anonymousreply 3209/28/2013

Angus is an unfortunately homely, crazy little fellow.

by Anonymousreply 3309/28/2013

Such a rotten-hearted show, with three great actors (Crier, Ferrell and Holland Taylor) too craven and connected to the money to leave. That shithead who replaced Sheen, the disgusting and one-note Jones, the aggressively wrong Tamblyn - hideous.

by Anonymousreply 3409/28/2013

I'd watch it if Lynda Carter turns into Wonder Woman and kicks Ashton Kutcher's ass.

Yeah, she's a regular Robert Frost. Do you have any understanding how the media industry works? You'll be pushing her for a Nobel Prize next.

Apparently you don't.

This will probably be the last season. Even the addition of a boner-dyke character and probably more cunnilingus jokes than previously known to man won’t help it.

by Anonymousreply 3909/29/2013

I watched it ... it was nice to have Holland Taylor back. She wasn't on much, if at all, last season.

by Anonymousreply 4009/29/2013

I really liked the show for about the first three seasons. After that I watched it occasionally. In the first couple of seasons, when he was completely self unaware, Angus was funny as hell. Especially when they teamed him with his grandmother.

But yeah, the mom and housekeeper were the funniest parts of the show. Especially the way the mother dealt with being a new widow.

by Anonymousreply 4109/29/2013

Why so pessimistic, R39?

by Anonymousreply 4209/29/2013

Yes, really, Russ Tamblyn, father, at r38. Amber is a wretched, trailer-trash name under any circumstances, and sounds particularly awful with Tamblyn. For those of us who are elderqueers, reminds me of the refrain to that stupid Black Betty song from the 70s:

Whoa, Black Betty (Amber Tamblyn) Whoa, Black Betty (Amber Tamblyn) Black Betty had a child (Amber Tamblyn) Damn thing gone wild (Amber Tamblyn)

Sounds nearly identical to the original, right?

What, I was supposed to like the name because her father was a celebrity, too?

She thought she was too good for tv and wanted to be a big movie star

He isn't fat anymore. I don't think he gained any weight since he was 10, in other words he grew into his fat.

by Anonymousreply 4509/29/2013

R35 - LOL!

Amber's actually quite a good actress. She's showing range too, her character on 2 1/2 Men is very different from her character on House.

by Anonymousreply 4609/29/2013

I watched the season opener of 2 1/2 Men with Amber Tamblyn. She's good, but the plot is predictable because she's "just like Charlie." That said, she's taking screen time away from Kutcher, which is a good thing! Still miss hot mess Sheen on the show, but Cryer and Berta are still on fire.

by Anonymousreply 4709/29/2013

That's racist, they are calling her a half a men cause she likes the lezsex?

You fags are all shit fucked up.

by Anonymousreply 4809/30/2013

No one has called her half a man.

by Anonymousreply 4909/30/2013

She's doing quite well as Jenny.

One of the worst sitcoms ever. It's at the bottom of the barrel with Family Matters, Full House and My Mother The Car.

Angus was far funnier.

Amber's character Jenny is a great addition to the show, and Amber's performance is solid.

Tamblyn is the only funny thing on that show.

by Anonymousreply 6105/30/2014

Why would anyone watch this dreck? There's so much better stuff to watch now. Shows like this are the lowest of the low. I feel sorry for Jon Cryer for being stuck doing this lame shit for so long, and having to put up with assholes like Sheen and Kutcher for so long.

Never forget: Josef Fritzl - who raped daughter for 24 years - loves Charlie Sheen's 'Two and a Half Men'

by Anonymousreply 6205/30/2014

R62 - Sheen is no longer with the show. By the way, there's this new show on TV called Breaking Bad.

by Anonymousreply 6305/30/2014

R62, Cryer could have left when any of his contracts ended. It's not prison. And he's walking away millions upon millions upon millions of dollars. I think he's fine.

Unfortunately, he will probably blow all his money to his cult.

Wasn't Amber a scream queen in Horror films?

by Anonymousreply 6605/30/2014

Not really R66

by Anonymousreply 6705/30/2014

You missed the point, r63.

by Anonymousreply 6805/30/2014

R66, she did that Grudge movie but other than that not really.

She's a good comedic actress, but really excels at drama. She's the lead in Tarantino's next movie and I really hope it gives her some great opportunities.

by Anonymousreply 6905/30/2014

Well, she was also in The Ring (the best part of the movie). But I wouldn't call her a Scream queen.
