Angus T. Jones lashes out at 'Two and a Half Men'
The sitcom's young star calls the show 'filth,' urges viewers to not watch
If you were wondering what it would take for CBS to put "Two and Half Men" and its cast and fans out of their misery, Angus T. Jones could be the answer.
The sitcom's 19-year-old star, who plays Jake, trashed the show and begged people not to watch in a Forerunner Christian Church video that is burning up the web. Jones, who apparently is steeped in his Christian faith, can be heard saying he doesn't want to be on the 10-season comedy anymore and calls the show "bad news."
"Please stop watching 'Two and a Half Men,'" said the actor who reportedly makes $350,000 an episode. "I'm on 'Two and a Half Men,' and I don't want to be on it. Please stop watching it and filling your head with filth."
"People say it's just entertainment," Jones added. "Do some research on the effects of television and your brain, and I promise you you'll have a decision to make when it comes to television, especially with what you watch."
In a separately shot segment, Jones goes on to say he can't be a true Christian and be on a show like "Two and Half Men." Chances are, his contract says otherwise. Check it out:
Jones is the latest "Two and Half Men" star to trash the comedy. In early 2011, Sheen called the show's creator and executive producer, Chuck Lorre, a "charlatan" and added that he had turned the show, which he described as a tin can, into gold. Sheen was later fired.
Meanwhile, Lorre, CBS and Warner Bros., have yet to comment on Jones' controversial and now very public opinions.
"Two and Half Men" airs Thursdays at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
Good for him for standing up for his beliefs. As to what he does with the money, it's his business. But if he's truly sincere about his faith, he'll find a good use for it. He may be donating it already for all we know.
And about quitting the show, it's called a "contract". It means he's legally obligated to film however many episodes the studio dictates for a set amount of time. It's not like you can just walk away. There are legal repercussions for that sort of thing.
I don't have cable. I don't even get basic channels. I mostly watch Netflix because I work long hours and odd hours. (Mostly nights.) I haven't seen much come out on television that appeals to me. (We have a TV in the break room of my office. I've seen a few bits and pieces of the current pathetic attempts at "entertainment" being offered today. I'm not impressed.)
I just don't understand why the writers and producers feel the need to "push the envelope" of their shows in order to be funny or entertaining. News flash, not everyone thinks that gratuitous sex, nudity, violence, or swearing is funny or entertaining.
Who needs him? He's not even mildly amusing anymore - just annoying. I'd say send his character to the Middle East and kill him off, but that would be an insult to our people that are over there for real. As if it's not insulting enough to assume the Army would take a dip$h!t pothead like Jake.
How about - have him come home on leave, and have him driving down the road getting a **** from that skank Miley Cyrus. He wraps the car around a pole, gets his weiner bitten off by Miley's horse teeth and bleeds to death.
WHY THE UNIFORM? Don't piss me off, piss ant.
!3.5 yrs. Navspecwarcom and this kid wears a UNIFORM? Give me BREAK!!!! : ( POS
WOW....Another one sucked in by the worlds greatest deception. I guess your god told you to screw the people that help you for so long, talk about shitting on you friends. Why don't you believe in yourself instead of a fictitious lie. You will be blackballed in hollywood now and good riddance.
If "Jake" wants out of the show let him off of the show and let him be Angus. Mr. Jones may realizes that his work is a waste of his time and he is ashamed of his work he should stop working. If Mr. Jones is not happy with his work he can quit just like Mr. Sheen, and he will find out just like Sheen that someone else will take the spot. Many actors would love to have the spot. Everyone can be replaced, even Charlie, so can Jake.
Angus can keep the money he earned over the years but he should not take any more money but give it to hungry children in L.A. It will make Angus feel like a hero.
Angus leave the show and all those that want to work alone. They work for their families and like the work. I do not understand why you want to hurt all those people, who you have worked with you so many years. Let all those who work on the show alone, let the money made this year be given to the hungry and go serve your God.
JUST QUIT! I agree that the show has outlived it's run. Strange Angus didn't say anything until now, I'm sure that he has a pretty nice nest egg and that is great but this religious gobbledygook that he spouts about filth is exactly that, not any sort of mainstream theological objections, just neo-Christian brainwash balderdash. Perhaps that is what he really needs to rid himself of.
Well another one bites the dust ! Angus your an idiot anyway , your character on the show these days and for some time is a waste of the shows time you should not have grown up , the older you got , the worse you got , a really bad actor , really bad. Charlie carried you then , no one to carry you now so just leave.. I for one will not stop watching the show. And again your an idiot. The good lord has a sense of humor or he would not have given it to us . I hope they fire your A$$. And a word of advice try not to speak too much while interviewing , you sound like some hillbilly that just came out of the woods for the first time and just started to learn your first words. I ALMOST feel sorry for the church that ends up with you .But we all know your favorite foods now , Its chicken and watermelon. And loose the glasses its not for you . you look like you should be in a gay parade in San Franfruitsco. And all the people out there that don't like the show your path is very simple. DON'T WATCH IT . Nobody wants to hear your crap. I think the stations lawyers will have a field day with this IDIOT.. The sponsors can't be too happy. Watch ,he's going to be sued..OH boo hoo the fruits dont like my comments,
This kid hasn't got a clue what life is like in the real world. Some people view the show as entertainment and enjoy it - for which this spoiled little ____ gets paid big bucks. Who friggin cares what he thinks aboutthe show? He is getting paid very well to do a job he apparently doesn't like ... so how people inthe real world are getting paid squat to do a job they hate ... for $350K an episode he can kiss my ____ . I'll bet there are any number of young actors that woudl love to get even 10% of that cash and get to swap spit with Miley even once ... what an A$$
The show was on it's last legs with Charlie, I have loved this show over the years but they were clearly out of material before Charlie left and it's only been on life support since. So yes' Chuck my boy, you proved your point to Mr. Sheen, now put it out of our misery and shoot the damn thing, it's run it's course, jumped the shark or whatever other metaphor you need.
