LOS ANGELES: Melanie Lynskey is heading to the Chuck Lorre universe once again as the actor has been cast in the fourth season of “Young Sheldon”.

The actor is best known for playing Rose, stalker and friend of Charlie Sheen’s character Charlie Harper in Lorre’s “Two and a Half Men”.

On “Young Sheldon”, Lynskey will play Sheldon’s philosophy teacher, Professor Ericson.

According to TV Line, she will appear in the February 11 episode, ‘A Philosophy Class and Worms That Can Chase You’, in which “Sheldon’s first day of college is derailed by his new philosophy teacher”.
