Two and a Half Men’s Melanie Lynskey To Appear on HOUSE

Actress Melanie Lynskey, best known for her work on Two and a Half Men, will guest star in an early 2012 episode of HOUSE.

But, according to TV Line, she will not be portraying the “Patient of the Week”. Instead she will appear as the wife of a convalescent; but “this is one of those rare instances where the plot revolves around the spouse as opposed to the patient”.

Lynskey will appear in the show’s ninth episode slated to air in January.

Among her other credits are the box office films Ever After: A Cinderella Story, Coyote Ugly, Sweet Home Alabama, Flags of Our Fathers and Up in the Air. Most recently, she guest starred on the now-defunct Memphis Beat.

The next new episode of House, now in its 8th season, is scheduled to air on Monday, October 31 at 9/8c (NOTE: Check your local listings for any programming changes).
