    On the heels of Angus T. Jones' departure from the opening credits (he's no longer a series regular), Tamblyn will be joining stars Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer for at least five episodes, centered around Jenny's move to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career and to reconnect with what's left of her family after Charlie's death.

    Can't wait until the Sept. 26 premiere to see how Jenny's sexuality spices up the show? Here are five things to know about Two and a Half Men's new star Amber Tamblyn:

    1. She's Besties With Blake Lively: Tamblyn and Blake costarred together in the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, and they've kept close since the 2005 flick. Amber was one of Lively's few select friends invited to her top-secret Southern wedding when the former Gossip Girl star said "I do" to Ryan Reynolds. And when Tamblyn took her own trip down the aisle less than one month later, Mr. and Mrs. Reynolds were also present to support their pal.

    3. She's a Newlywed: Tamblyn said "I do" to longtime love and Arrested Development star David Cross in October 2012. The brunette beauty opted for a nontraditional yellow wedding dress for her wedding in the woods, which took place in a clearing by a river. Amber even arrived by canoe and walked down the aisle barefoot with her father, West Side Story actor Russ Tamblyn. The happy couple, who dated for two years before taking the plunge, are still going strong today.
