Courtney Thorne-Smith booked on 'Men'

Nabs recurring role as Jon Cryer's sitcom girlfriend

Courtney Thorne-Smith is returning to sitcom television and Alan is getting way out of his league.

Thorne-Smith has been tapped for a recurring role on CBS' "Two and a Half Men."

In a multi-episode arc, she will play Lindsay, a girlfriend for Alan (Jon Cryer) who is a deeply neurotic, recently divorced mother of a rotten 16-year-old boy.

Thorne-Smith, who spent eight seasons on ABC’s multicamera comedy "According to Jim," recently starred in the Lifetime Movie Network film "Sorority Wars."
