Courtney Thorne-Smith woos one of 'Two and a Half Men'

courtney-thorne-smith-getty-320.jpgAlan is going to get some action on "Two and a Half Men" in the form of Courtney Thorne-Smith.

The former "Melrose Place" and "According to Jim" star has landed a recurring role on "Two and a Half Men," CBS confirms to Zap2it. She'll be playing a new girlfriend for the perpetually unlucky Alan (Jon Cryer).

There are, of course, strings attached: Thorne-Smith's character, Lindsay, is kind of a mess, arriving in the relationship on the heels of a divorce and with a teenage son she has a hard time handling. In other words, she's something of a female Alan.

There's no word yet on when her arc will begin.

Thorne-Smith, who also starred on "Ally McBeal," ended her eight-season run on "According to Jim" last year. She also starred in the Lifetime movie "Sorority Wars" last year.
