Miley Cyrus not joining ‘Bonnie & Clyde,’ still set for ‘Two and a Half Men’

As much as some people may have wanted to see Miley Cyrus play one of the most notorious criminals in history, we have some news breaking: it’s not happening.

According to a brand-new report that is coming in via TVLine, the former star of “Hannah Montana” has opted not to take part in the network’s upcoming miniseries themed all around “Bonnie & Clyde.” This was a rare production that was going to be created for both Lifetime and the History Channel, with the hope here being that it could in some way manage to equal the ratings success of another popular series produced recently in “Hatfields & McCoys.” As for why the talks fell through, there was no reason given; ultimately, it may have just been possible that the project was looking to go in a different direction that Miley was hoping for, and the two parties ultimately opted to go their separate ways.

While this could have been the sort of role that reminded everyone of just how deep Miley’s acting chops actually go, she does have a pair of other major projects coming up that she can place more of her focus on. In addition to being a regular in the studio for her upcoming album, she is also gearing up for a role on “Two and a Half Men” as Missi, a young woman who actually gets in some romantic entanglements with both Walden (Ashton Kutcher) and Jake (Angus T. Jones) in a short span of time. This marks her first major TV role for Cyrus since leaving the Disney Channel to focus mostly on music and feature films.

What do you think about this decision from Miley, and do you think that she did the right thing by walking away? Be sure to share some of your thoughts below, and you can check out some more news about the “Two and a Half Men” casting over at the link here.
