Hilary Duff to get cozy with Ashton Kutcher
Former teen star will play Walden's love interest on 'Two and a Half' finale

Seems things are about to get pretty crowded at the beach-front abode shared by Alan Harper and his richie rich pal Walden Schmidt on "Two and a Half Men."
Bing: More on Hilary Duff | 'Two And A Half Men'
On the heels of an announcement that Marilu Henner would be guest-starring on the hit CBS sitcom as the grandmother of one of Ashton Kutcher's hottie millionaire's many gal pals, said lady love has also been cast -- and Hilary Duff is set to play her, according to a report by TVLine.com.
"So excited to be joining the cast of #twohalfmen_cbs this week!" Duff tweeted this week. "I get to play a crazy drunk girl, funnnn!!!"
Former Disney kid Duff -- best known for her long run as a teen darling on the network's hit "Lizzie McGuire" -- is set to appear on the tenth season finale of the long-running Chuck Lorre hit, airing May 9. She'll play Stacey, an age-appropriate love interest for Walden, whom it appears falls for her grandmother instead. Henner, of course, will be the much older woman.
This is hardly Duff's first foray into TV since "McGuire" wrapped in 2004. She's since done stints on "Gossip Girl," "Raising Hope" and "Community." And last year, the singer-actress signed a deal with Twentieth Century Fox to develop a half-hour comedy pilot for herself -- so expect to see more of her on TV soon.
"Two and a Half Men" airs Thursdays at 8:30 ET/PT on CBS.

Hillary Duff was a terrific actress from her days as "Lizzie McGuire", but ths show is virtually done. Ashton Kutcher is no actor.

Maybe Hilary will make the show better I hope so but who knows the Alan Harper character is getting very tiring. and the hole cast is lame I use to DVR it but I need the space for more important stuff.

the creators lost there way,after casting a horrible replacement for Charlie,they broght back rose,made ashton sleep with every woman on the show,now Hillary? wow major suck,

This show is a waste of space, why is it even still on. The only thing Ashton was good for was that 70's show and getting it on with Demi and he messed that up too. please get the show off the air, sooo boring now Sheen as gone.

This show does not belong on television without Charlie. It is horrible.

Bring Charlie back from the dead to breathe new life back into that horrible show.

Instead of bringing new girls/women on left and right (what happened to the men on 2 & 1/2 men?) they should just get rid of Ashton. He's terrible and a big waste of money for that show. Come on Men producers, get Charlie back or let the show die while people still (vaguely) remember it as being a good show.

If that's the best she can do , she might want to consider a job as a waitress. The show died when they got rid of Sheen...Kutcher is a talentless moron.

To every season..... this one is over. Charlie Sheen should not have kept job in the wake of his behavior but this show does't work without him. I think they have gotten too raunchy trying to make up for the lack of Sheen's humor. There were several ways this show could have progressed but to take it down smut lane was a mistake.

Please cancel this show. It is so done. The only reason anyone watches it now is because it follows Big Bang. Hilary you can do so much better. I repeat. Please cancel this show.

Show has run it's course. Angus T has gotten too old to pull off his part and Ashton Kutcher is absolutely humorless. Bury it.

I went to grade school with Marilu and love her but the thought of her and Walden ewwww . Hilary is hot and that might work

Asshton Butcher is the worst person to attempt to act in TV or movies. Why do studios continue to pay this loser any money is a mystery.
