Amber Tamblyn has daddy issues.

The "House" actress has signed on to play Charlie Harper's (Charlie Sheen) illegitimate daughter Jenny on CBS's "Two and a Half Men," in a five-episode arc that could be extended into a series-regular role if the character proves popular with viewers. Jenny is described as a lesbian who has moved to L.A. to pursue an acting career and reconnect with her family. The gag is that she's into everything her father liked - women included. If the role moves into series-regular territory, Deadline says there is a scenario already in place that would see Jenny moving in with Walden (Ashton Kutcher) and her uncle Alan (Jon Cryer)..

In addition to "House," Tamblyn recently completed a stint on IFC miniseries "The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret" opposite real-life husband David Cross.
