Newest 'Two and a Half Men' Regular Uses Un-Hollywood PC and Pre
Unless you're a big fan of 'Two and a Half Men,' you probably haven't heard of Jennifer Taylor (pictured). But if you're one of the millions of viewers who watch the hit Monday night sitcom on CBS, or on countless local stations in syndication, then you probably know that Taylor plays Chelsea, Charlie Sheen's sometime girlfriend (and now fiancee). Next Monday (9/21), Taylor will reprise that role as a series regular for the first time. Before she gets too famous, though, we thought we'd get Taylor to answer our Questionnaire. We were pleasantly surprised to find out that this Florida native -- who is working towards a Bachelor's Degree in Social Sciences in her spare time -- eschews the de rigueur Hollywood gear (a Mac and an iPhone) in favor of a PC and a Palm Pre.
