"Two and a Half Men" has not been very kind to the character of Alan Harper. They have set him up with a few leading ladies, but it never pans out for him. We have watched Walden bring many women in and out of the house, and even kiss Alan's ex-wife, Judith, during Season 9. It would be nice to see something good happen for his love life, especially after all the issues he has dealt with over the course of the eight seasons. These are a few women that would be a perfect fit for him, and also add some value to the show.
Actually, we have already seen Cryer and Elfman work together on the show. She played Frankie, a woman who was running away from her life. She appeared for only two episodes, but it seemed that she really hit it off with Alan. If the writers could snag Elfman and reprise the character of Frankie, there would definitely be some major storyline potential. Right now she is slated to have a recurring role on "Damages," but she could probably work something out with the show and do both.
Blair has not been very active on television in recent years, but it would be amazing to see her do something opposite Jon Cryer. She has a few movies coming out, but even a short stint on the show would definitely boost the ratings. It seems that Blair would be one of the best-suited women to play opposite of Cryer, and possibly have a recurring role.
Can you imagine the laughs that would come from putting Kudrow on the show? Since Sheen has been gone, the funny factor has sort of fell off. Her role on "Friends" as Phoebe was one of the best in television for comedy. Cryer could help her boost her popularity once again, and her presence on the show would keep the ratings steady at least. This could be the beginning of a great fictional romance.
Out of the three ladies, the best bet would be to snag Elfman. She already has ties to the show and an existing character to step into. If the rumors are true and Kutcher may not return, one of these ladies could be the thing that saves the show one last time. Fans have been waiting for something to happen with Alan, and nothing is better than having a girlfriend and all the possibilities that goes along with it.
