Deadline reports that Mimi Rogers has joined the cast of Two and a Half Men in an important recurring role: She’ll be playing the mother of Walden, Ashton Kutcher’s character. “If you wonder where computer genius Walden got his brains from,” notes Deadline (which is definitely something we were all wondering, good call), it’s apparently from the Rogers character, a primatologist akin to Dian Fossey. Also notable: Mimi Rogers looks quite a bit like Demi Moore! The optics of this screen relationship won’t be weird at all!
