Ashton Kutcher's on-screen love life is about to get a little bit steamier. TVLine reported Tuesday that actress Hilary Duff will be guest starring on the sitcom “Two and a Half Men” alongside Kutcher's character, Walden Schmidt.
Reports are claiming that Duff, 25, of “Lizzie McGuire” and “Gossip Girl” fame, will be starring as “Stacey” Kutcher’s new love interest on the hit comedy's season 10 finale.
“So excited to be joining the cast of [Two and a Half Men] this week! I get to play a crazy drunk, girl, funnnn!!! [sic]” Duff tweeted Tuesday, saying she is enjoying her time working alongside fellow guest star, Marilu Henner of “Taxi,” who will be playing Duff’s character’s grandmother on the show.
“So lucky and excited to work with the beautiful and talented [Marilu Henner] on [Two and a Half Men] this week. Today was a blast,” said Duff.
Henner and Duff’s episode is scheduled to air on May 9.
This isn’t the first time a popular, young celebrity played a love interest for Kutcher on the program. “Hannah Montana” actress Miley Cyrus, 20, starred opposite Kutcher on a two-episode arc earlier in season 10 as “Missi,” a Southern belle who Kutcher believes is hitting on him before she falls for “Jake,” Angus T. Jones’ character.
"Two and a Half Men" airs Thursdays on NBC at 8:30 p.m. EST.
