CBS revealed the backstory on Kutcher’s character earlier this month and it goes a little something like this. Walden Schmidt is an ‘internet billionaire’ who is mending a broken heart. He buys the recently deceased Charlie Harper’s home, and because he is so heartbroken over the breakup with his wife he wants Allan and Jake to stay. Enter Judy Greer as Bridget, his soon to be ex-wife. She’s slated to appear in a number of episodes this season. I’m a big fan of Judy’s, who is hysterical in really everything she does. Did you see her last season in the CBS comedy Mad Love? Again, funny. So while we don’t know what Bridget’s personality is like just yet, I’d love to see her interaction with Berta, played by Conchata Ferrell, another great comedic actress. Um, tell me Berta still gets to be her sarcastic self on the show, right?
Some 2.5 fans may remember that this is not the first time we’ve seen Greer on the show. She played Herb’s sister, Myra, in 2007 and appeared in two episodes as a love interest for Charlie. So I guess we’re just supposed to forget that little tidbit or maybe Myra died as well? Ha ha, no, I jest.
Courtney Thorne-Smith will be returning as Lindsey McElroy, who last season was the lady love to Jon Cryer’s character, Allan. Details surrounding Thorne-Smith’s return are being kept a secret, so we’ll have to see how that plays out.
The new season will begin on Monday, September 19th, a two part premiere. Can’t wait to see how many viewers will tune in for the premiere episode. I’ll be watching, will you?
