Charlie Sheen opens 'Anger' door to Angus T. Jones

Controversial teen star's former 'Two and a Half Men' uncle extends FX invite

The above picture can't help but remind one of simpler times, when "Two and a Half Men" merely coasted by on inexplicably consistent ratings without entering the pop-culture orbit of those who abstained. That, of course, was before Charlie Sheen harnessed the power of viral media -- and Angus T. Jones quickly discovered its pitfalls. 
 
 
Faster than you can say, "Cue cannily timed audience applause," Jones' YouTube soliloquy on the virtues of Seventh-Day Adventists and detriment of enduring his hit series' "filth" was the talk of Hollywood. Rainn Wilson even spoofed it to score some extra "Office" audience.

The future of Jones at "Two and a Half Men" remains unclear, but fortunately for the morally conflicted 19-year-old actor, Charlie Sheen has an open-door policy over at his totally not-filthy FX sitcom, "Anger Management."

In an interview with ABC News, Sheen declared, "My former nephew is welcome at the Goodson 'Anger Management' home anytime," referring to the surname of his therapist alter-ego on the series. Sheen also seems to view Jones' rant as a "Hale-Bopp-like meltdown," in an odd parallel to the infamous Heaven's Gate cult.

Something tells us this will all be sorted out over at CBS before the intervention of a confessed nymphomaniac drug addict emerges as an ideal solution. If not, and if Jones is indeed still seeking work on a purer broadcast, Big Bird can use all the help he can get these days.

"Two and a Half Men" airs Thursdays at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT on CBS. "Anger Management" Season 2 premieres January 17 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on FX.

Nice to see religion turn him into a backstabbing ingrateful little d-bag.  I guess as soon as he realized he might get kicked off the show and lose his $350,000 a show payday he backpedaled as fast as he could.

Seventh Day Adventists are far from a Cult my friend Charlie - so being a Christian is Cult now.. What would he know about being a Christian anyhow..

Chawie, Chawie, Chawie....... umm, Angus just trashed 2.5 Men because it's all dirty and stuff.  And un-Christian-like.  Why, oh why, do you think he would not trash Anger Management even worse?  Hello?!

I love it!  I miss Jake a lot and I can't watch Two and a Half any more.  It's just disgusting.  I'd love to see him go to Anger Management!

This makes good sense. Two losers on a loser show. If Jones is so upset about the millions he has made from Two and a Half Men, he can regain his faux-purity by giving his earnings to charity.

I am glad for Angus' stance.  I will be anxious to see and hear all that he's doing for the Lord!  There are other actors out there also for the Lord.  May his life be truly blessed!!  I wish him well!!  -Lee Stroud

Can Jon Cryer come along too?  Leave the judgmental suits from Two and a Half Men to look into their own mirrors.  Honestly, if I was workng as hard as Charlie Sheen (177 hours a week), I'd have a meltdown too.  He's a good actor time to move on. I wish him all the best.

I think Angus Jones probably figured that Two and a half Men was on it's way out the door, I applaud the young actor for having a lot of smarts. And going to Charlie's new sitcom is what he needs.

Jones is entitled to his opinion, and I for one am glad that he realizes how sinful this show really is. As for going to work with Charlie Sheen, I seen nothing wrong with it. I just can't believe that people around this young actor convinced him that he was wrong for speaking out, and made him apologize in an attempt to do damage control. He has a  mind of his own, and should be allowed to express his own opinion. If Angus doesn't want to do the show anymore, the network execs should release him from his contract, making everybody happy. I for one don't see Two and a half men being on the air much longer. Ashton Kutcher's character is just terrible. They show went downhill when Charlie Sheen was fired. They knew it then, and they know it now.

Perfect, Jones could be added to Anger Management as the son of Charlie's bastard brother resulting from a long ago affair by Charlie's father now played on the series by Martin Sheen; grandfather, son, and grandson..

totellthetruth - Why would hanging out with Charlie Sheen make him not a good Christian? Jesus socialized with sinners all the time and the whole point behind Christianity is to reach those who are lost. Having grown up working with Sheen, Angus obviously has a close relationship with him. To now shun him just because he doesn't follow the same moral code as he does would be the exact opposite of the Christian thing to do.

Oh great. Poor kid goes from the frying pan right into the fire. DON'T DO IT, ANGUS!!!

Strange how this kid goes on about his religion and calls the show that pays him well filth and then turns around and hangs with Charlie Sheen as if he is somehow a good Christian.  Sheen is about as filthy as you can get so I guess this little smart is full of S_ _T regarding is conversion to GOD!

Thanks for the article, Kenny. Sheen was an important part of the sit-com, before he decided he was too BIG, for it. (Angus) Jones is a good kid, and it's natural, at his age, to reassess his role on a show that, admittedly, probably has MORE sexual-type content than is necessary. I guess that Jon Cryer is the stand-out part of the show, by now ... Kutcher's OK, but the old face-offs ... Sheen (Charlie) vs. Cryer (Alan) were essential to the sit-com's backbone.  Oh, well ....

Way to go Charlie.  The kid is right - this show is trash ever since you left.  Ashton Kucher stinks.

Nice of you to open the door to another opportunity for him.
