Another change from Two and a Half Men is heralded by the back door: Marin Hinkle as Alan's ex-wife was complementary player in the series, in the new NBC series Infamous promoted to leading lady.
It's one of those cases where you would like to play mice. One thing is clear: Actress Marin Hinkle has played in the series pilot for "Infamous" is a rather important guest role. She portrayed the wife of Tate Donovan namely character Edward Lawson. Edward is the eldest son of a filthy rich industrialist family who loses a daughter under mysterious circumstances. Their old friend Joanna Locasto (Meagan Good), who grew up as the daughter of a maid in the family and now works for the police, there undercover and infiltrated now investigating this. For the Lawsons are by the prosecution because of their business practices have long regarded with suspicion.
On the other hand, the 46-year-old Marin Hinkle heard since the beginning of the comedy series "Two and a Half Men" to the local "complementary players." These are actors that occur only occasionally, but each of whose name is also mentioned in the opening credits. They are also important for the series enough so that the producers keep them under long term contract and then they are available if needed. After all, portrays Hinkle Alan Harper (Jon Cryer) ex-wife and therefore the mother of his son Jake (Angus T. Jones). The category also includes portraits of Holland Taylor Evelyn Harper's mother.
Since "Infamous" at NBC Universal for NBC and "Two and a Half Men" at Warner Bros. TV is produced for CBS, it is unlikely that the Treaty of Hinkle scheduling appearances in both series - such a collaboration is rarely if not a studio or a station representing the interest of coordinating such a thing.
However, "Two and a Half Men," a sitcom that has ultimately only one day of filming per episode, and she has eight seasons after a presumably well-established team. Furthermore, "Infamous" until midseason on NBC provided for - the first season will not exceed 13 episodes so, which would in time Hinkle room for an occasional return to the "Men".
Prior to her role in "Two and a Half Men" had Marin Hinkle already critical acclaim in the family drama "Once and Again" garnered (in the German version of "Again and Again", from 1999 to 2002) in which they double the sister of a recently divorced mother (Sela Ward from "CSI: New York") portrayed.
Furthermore, studies the production of "Infamous," according to a new cast for the role of the youngest son of Lawson, who was portrayed in the original series pilot Neil Jackson (Infamous: Neil Jackson has left the show). The other main roles in the series are Ella Rae Peck, Victor Garber, Katherine La Nasa, Laz Alonso and Makenzie Leigh.
