georgia engel getty 'Two and a Half Men': Georgia Engel cast as Evelyn's lesbian love interest“Two and a Half Men” has been full of surprises ever since Charlie Sheen got fired and Ashton Kutcher took over. But the latest news is as shocking as anything that’s ever happened on the highly-rated sitcom.

In an upcoming episode, the always man-hungry Evelyn (Holland Taylor) will have a lesbian affair. But that’s not the weird news. Her relationship will be with Lyndsey’s (Courtney Thorne-Smith) mother, played by Georgia Engel.

EP Chuck Lorre tells TV Guide, “Georgia’s playing Jean, the sweet, widowed mom [Lyndsey]. She and Evelyn really hit it off.”

Taylor, whose character seemingly always has a new man in her life, adds, “Chuck wants to show Evelyn experiencing real affection for the very first time.”

According to Jon Cryer, Alan continues to be the worrywart. He says that his character “becomes concerned with how to break this news to Jake once the ladies decide to get matching tattoos.” He should also be concerned that his girlfriend could ultimately become his step-sister.
