Emannuelle Vaugier, Two and a Half Men
Someone's getting married tonight on the season finale of CBS' Two and a Half Men
, and it may or may not be Charlie Sheen's man who loves women. (The first clue should have been when Charlie Harper registered himself at Scores.) Emmanuelle Vaugier
, who plays fiancée Mia, brings TVGuide.com up to speed on the nuptials that may be nope-tials.
TVGuide.com: The good news is that since the last time we spoke, I have seen Saw II, and yes, that was a grisly fate for your character.
Emmanuelle Vaugier: [Laughs] Wasn't it though?
TVGuide.com: The DVD extras explain how they create Jigsaw's traps so they don't actually maim or kill the actors, but still, those cuffs had to hurt your wrists.
Vaugier: Yeah, they were pretty scratched up by the end of the day. It looked like I had attempted to do something to myself but failed miserably. [Laughs]
TVGuide.com: Did you have relatives all concerned, like, "Emmanuelle, is everything OK in your life?"
Vaugier: "Are you happy?" "Are you good?" It was more the hotel employees who noticed, when I'd be downstairs having drinks with the rest of the cast, wearing a sleeveless shirt. "What's wrong with that girl?"
TVGuide.com: The extras also show that there was a simple latch your character missed that could have saved her all that suffering.
Vaugier: Well, there's that, too. [Laughs]
TVGuide.com: Tobin Bell [aka Jigsaw] called me from the set of Saw III last week, and he says it's some good stuff.
Vaugier: Awesome. I hear the script for the third one is supposed to be fantastic.
TVGuide.com: The last time you and I talked, I asked if Mia and Charlie might be heading for a February-sweeps wedding, and you said, "I'm not sure. That could be interesting, though!" I was off by only a sweeps period.
Vaugier: I honestly didn't know at that point what was going to happen. I basically find out week to week, and then we're like, "Ohh, that's what's going to happen."
TVGuide.com: Now there will be a wedding, yes?
Vaugier: Yes. Charlie and Mia are planning a wedding, and there will be a wedding. Whether it's Charlie and Mia.... We don't know.
TVGuide.com: Who else could it be? The kid is way too young, and I don't believe Conchata Ferrell's housekeeper is desperate for a green card...?
Vaugier: [Laughs] It could be Charlie and Rose, it could be Jon Cryer's Alan and Rose, it could be Alan and Mia.... Maybe it's Charlie and Alan?
TVGuide.com: Will you be back next season, for one reason or another?
Vaugier: It seems like it's a possibility. It's always left open-ended as to whether Mia comes back or not. If they get married, obviously I'll be around until something horrible happens, I'm sure. [Laughs] We can't possibly have Charlie be not single for too long on the show! But I'm sure Mia will be back in some capacity.
TVGuide.com: It's too bad Two and a Half Men has wrapped. You could be teasing Charlie Sheen about his No. 2 ranking on Maxim's "Living Sex Legends" list. They have him at 5,000 conquests.
Vaugier: [Laughs] Is that what the count is? I did not know that.
TVGuide.com: I don't know if affidavits are involved or not, but that's 5,000 different people.
Vaugier: "Unique users."
TVGuide.com: [Laughs] Yes, "unique users," as we saw in the online world.
Vaugier: That's pretty funny. Well, he and I can now both say we've been on a Maxim list of some sort. We have something in common now.
TVGuide.com: They're very different lists.
Vaugier: Very different lists, yeah.
TVGuide.com: Tell me about Unearthed.
Vaugier: That's not coming out until 2007, but it is a sci-fi feature where I play a sheriff with a little bit of a drinking problem. It's along the lines of Alien or John Carpenter's The Thing, which is quite funny because I'm working with John Carpenter right now on [Showtime's] Masters of Horror. I've done so much horror stuff, if I'm going to do more it might as well be with him. You can't really top that!
TVGuide.com: What's the premise for his Masters of Horror episode?
Vaugier: It takes place in an abortion clinic, so it's fairly controversial for the subject matter.
TVGuide.com: This is "a very special episode of Masters of Horror," isn't it?
Vaugier: [Laughs] It takes place in an abortion clinic and there are monsters. Need I say more?
TVGuide.com: It doesn't sound like you're getting the romantic comedy you said you wanted in our previous Q&A.
Vaugier: I know, seriously!
TVGuide.com: Was there opportunity for romantic comedy in your voice work for the Need for Speed 7 video game?
Vaugier: Romance, but not so much comedy. [Laughs] There's a love interest, but there's not much funny-ha-ha in the Need for Speed video game. I'm not a big gamer, so they actually sent me an Xbox 360 and some games so I could brush up on my skills.
TVGuide.com: And now you're shipping that Xbox to me, right?
Vaugier: Absolutely! And you will forever write glowing reviews about me!
