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

'Two and a Half Men' '/' CBSIf 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."

 

Bing: More on 'Two and Half Men' | Angus T. Jones

 

"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.

Good luck finding work in Hollywood, with an attitude like that, towards "filth" TV! You just cut you potential or future rolls in half, if not more. He just sunk his own ship... Hardcore!

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.

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.

Where was his conscience before now, and BTW, after he has earned millions from this show that has been raunchy "filth" from the very beginning?  If he's truly repentant, he should give away his earnings from the show and get a real job such as - I don't know - preaching the gospel.

WOW WHAT A COMPLETE IDIOT AND MORON.  YOUNG WHITE BOY HAS FANTASTIC JOB EARNING INSANE AMOUNT OF MONEY HERE IS THE SIN; THE SIN IS NO APPRECIATION OR THANKFULNESS TO "GOD" FOR THE FUNDS HE EARNS FOR DOING NOTHING TO ENHANCE THE GOOD OF THIS WORLD; HE SHOULD GET ON HIS KNEES AND KISS THE ASSES  OF TWO AND A HALF MEN CREATORS AND SHUT THE **** UP. IF HE THINKS ITS SUCH A BAD SHOW LET HIM QUIT AND LET ME ACT IN IT. I CAN STAND AND READ LINES IN PROBABLY LESS TIME THAN HE COMPLETES IT. I HAVE A MASTERS DEGREE AND I HAVE BEEN UNEMPLOYED FOR THREE YEARS. THIS ARROGANT **** COMPLAINS ABOUT THE JOB HE WORKS AT GETTING $350,000 AN EPISODE. GO TO HELL. REALLY GO TO HELL AND TAKE YOUR WHINY **** TO YOUR CHURCH AND FIND OUT WHAT REAL LIFE IS ABOUT. YOU SHOULD BE KISSING THE **** OF TWO AND HALF MANS CREATORS YOU DUMB IDIOT ****.

Another hollywood idiot who has an inflated sense of his own success.  This show will end and you will never hear from him again. I hope he doesn't blow his earnings

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.

So let's see...Who has the bigger car?  Angus or the "Biebs"? And, oh yeah, it seems like Mr. Jones has just jumped on the homophobia bandwagon too. Talk about Brainwashing.

I started watching the show after Charlie Sheen left and have hardly seen Angus T. Jones in any of the episodes.  He won't be missed if he is gone and maybe getting someone younger to replace him is the answer.  He is no longer funny and in a year nobody will know who he was.

It's easy to flap your gums. I mean if Angus feel's so strongly about it. Than he should turn every cent he made for being on the show to some worthy cause like saving the endangered wildlife of our planet. Then I could respect such  trash talk. Thanks to that show Angus is set for life. Not to many people at age 19 have that luxuary. So Angus T Jones Put yor money where your mouth is!
