First Chuck Lorre, now Jon Cryer. Charlie Sheen is calling out his former on-screen brother for not contacting him during his dispute with Lorre, Warner Bros. and CBS.
"Jon has not called me. He's a turncoat, a traitor, a troll. Clearly he's a troll," Sheen told E! News Tuesday. "He issued a statement. Is it gonna take me calling him a 'traitor, juvenile and scared' for him to...
Melanie Lynskey may have driven off the set of Two and a Half Men, but when the sitcom celebrates its 100th episode, she'll be back as Charlies stalker Rose, and apparently for more than a pit stop. At the CBS Monday Night Lineup Premiere Party on Sept. 19, Men costar Marin Hinkle (who plays Judith Harper) revealed that in the milestone episode, Charlie will realize his true passion for his stalker. "He goes to seek her out to tell her how he feels about her, and theres a surprise to how she handles it. Im sure she will be back for many episodes. The way they left it had a wonderful dot-dot-dot."Lynskey is not the only guest star appearing on the comedy in its first six episodes. Janeane Garofalo appears as one of Alan's romantic mistakes, Ming Wen will be one of Charlies objects of affection, and much to Holland Taylors delight, Robert Wagner will come back to romance her character, Evelyn Harper. "Ive had Martin Sheen and Robert Wagner as my lo...
Marin Hinkle is cornering the market on bitter ex-wife roles.The Two and a Half Men actress (she plays John Cryer's uptight ex) has been cast as Courtney McCallister, the bitter former spouse of Rob Lowe's Sen. McCallister, on Brothers & Sisters. She'll appear in one episode this fall, but it's likely she'll be back for more. In the episode, Courtney goes on a Larry King Live-type talk show to discuss her estranged hubby's bid for the White House further inflaming tensions between the two. Since Hinkle is a series regular on Men, it's safe to say that she had to get CBS and Warner Bros.' OK before committing to B&S. In other casting news, Tom Everett Scott has sealed a deal with ABC's Cashmere Mafia to play the fiancé of Lucy Liu's character which is a little strange since in the pilot I saw she was definitely single. I'm sure there's a very good explanation for that. Or not.
Once & Again fans remember Marin Hinkle as Sela Ward's little sister, the jealous, moody Judy. Now, she costars as Judith, Jon Cryer's estranged — and possibly gay — wife on Two and a Half Men (Mondays at 9:30 pm/ET on CBS). But if you thought Hinkle played difficult drama queens in those roles, just wait till you see her on tonight's ER!
Basically, her part is every ER day player's dream: The freaked-out mother whose kid's undergoing a medical procedure in the emergency room. That kind of cameo just begs for an actress to run the scenery-chewing gamut, from fear to anger to full-on meltdown. Here's a little preview...
"My character is a mom who's driving with her husband and two kids an
