Lyndsey’s ex marks the spot for Judd Nelson, who has been tapped to guest-star on CBS’ ‘Two And A Half Men.’

The onetime member of Hollywood’s infamous Brat Pack will play Chris, Lyndsey’s (Courtney Thorne-Smith) former husband, in the fourth episode of the coming season, Fancast has learned exclusively.

How does Chris get on with Lyndsey’s new fella, Alan (Jon Cryer)? I would say surprisingly well, considering the somewhat unpleasant circumstances precipitating his appearance. (Nope, not gonna spoil it here.)

In fact, you might say that he, Alan, Charlie and even Judith’s hubby, Herb, form a bit of a “breakfast club” – if breakfast consisted of bourbon and was served in the middle of the night.

Nelson’s ‘Men’ gig marks a rare TV appearance for the star of such 1980s classics as ‘The Breakfast Club’ and ‘St. Elmo’s Fire.’ After appearing on several seasons of ‘Suddenly Susan’ (say that 10 times fast), he went on to focus on delivering the occasional, headline-grabbing guest-star turn, on shows such as ‘CSI’ and ‘Psych.’

Earlier this year, Nelson participated in the Academy Awards ceremony’s tribute to filmmaker John Hughes.
