Go Behind the Scenes of Miley Cyrus’ Guest Arc on ‘Two And a Half Men’
In case you weren’t already stoked to see Miley Cyrus on ‘Two And a Half Men,’ new behind-the-scenes interviews have hit the Web — and the show is shaping up to be pretty hilarious. So how’d she get the gig? (Aside from, you know, being Miley Cyrus?)
“She was actually hosting an episode of ‘Punk’d,’ and I was like, ‘Hey, would you ever be interested in doing an episode of ‘Two And a Half Men?’” Ashton Kutcher said. “And she said, ‘Yeah, I would love that, that would be amazing!’”
Actor Jon Cryer revealed that, as we suspected from the previews, Cyrus’ character, Missi, is a chatty Cathy. “They came up with a really fun character for Miley, but that character does involve a lot of words,” Cryer laughed. “On some level you have to stand back and your jaw drops because you know she has more to say.”
Miley confirmed that, telling Entertainment Tonight, “My character just doesn’t shut up!” That is, until Angus T. Jones’ character, Jake, smooches her. (Don’t worry — Liam Hemsworth was cool with it!) Ooh la la! “I hope at some point I could come back and do this because it’s been a really good time. So I think it’s a really fun episode, and it sets up, if I ever wanted to come back here again, it would just set it up so nice.”
Part of why she wants to return? Her folks will tune in. “This is the only kind of show that my whole family really likes,” she said. “It’s just a cool show that everybody likes and it’s kind of good for everyone, so it’s fun to be here.”
Kutcher would certainly welcome her back with open arms. “She walked in here from the table read and just owned it,” he said. “It might become two and a half and three quarters of a woman.”
You can catch Cyrus’ first full episode of ‘Two And a Half Men’ this Thursday (Oct. 18) at 8:30PM ET on CBS.
