'Two And A Half Men' Casts Miley Cyrus And More Casting News

Miley Cyrus is headed to "Two And A Half Men."

The singer/actress has landed a two-episode arc on the CBS series as Missi, a girl Jake (Angus T. Jones) falls for when he comes back from the army.

The news was first reported earlier in August by Life of the Rich and Famous, which revealed that Cyrus would play a "hot new local in town that's dating soon-to-be-legal Jake Harper (Angus T. Jones)" and that Walden Schmidt (Ashton Kutcher) will develop a "massive crush" on Cyrus' character. No word from CBS if the latter part is true.
