Two and a Half Men Characters
To say the least, the entire cast is hilarious. It is difficult to choose who is the funniest. It is Charlie Sheen, who characterizes Charles Francis Harper. His casual spaced out persona brings out exactly who he is. Jon Cryer playing the role of Alan Harper is just too good an actor. He has some excellent expression of a harassed, exasperated and slightly disturbed character often at sea as to how to deal with a bright son who now and then pairs up with his uncle. Angus T. Jones in the role of the under-achieved son of Alan is a little guy with fantastic talent. In the other characters, Rose played by Melanie Lynskey is a heart-stealer, carefully nurturing her obsessive and yet cute self throughout. Conchata Ferrell as Berta, Holland Taylor as Evelyn Harper and Marin Hinkle as Judith Melnick, were just too good in their acts. The entire cast is very amusing and their voices, attitudes, appearances and body language portray their characters to their full worth.
