Though former child star Hilary Duff has been out of the spotlight for a few years, she’s still a large enough presence in Hollywood that her appearance on the most popular current network TV sitcom can still make waves. It has been announced that Duff will be guest-starring in the season finale of Two and a Half Men, which is filming this week.
According to an E! News report, Duff will play a love interest for Ashton Kutcher‘s character, Walden Schmidt. Marilu Henner will play Duff’s grandmother in the episode, and will also be a love intrest for Schmidt.
Duff has tweeted out her excitement about being on the CBS show, and indicated that her character is a “crazy drunk girl.”
So excited to be joining the cast of @TwoHalfMen_CBS this week! I get to play a crazy drunk girl, funnnn!!!
Duff is best known for playing the title role in the Disney Channel show Lizzie McGuire. She married NHL player Mike Comrie in 2010, and the couple gave birth to their first child just over one year ago, in March 2012.
