Angus T. Jones calls 'Two And a Half Men' series 'filth,' says he wants off the show
Ready for your next Two And a Half Men shakeup? No, Charlie Sheen isn't returning from the dead, but Angus T. Jones, who has been on the show since he was 10, may be on the chopping block for calling the show "filth" that is part of Satan's plan and repeatedly declaring he wants off the show, and that you shouldn't watch it. What say you, series creator Chuck Lorre?
Jones appeared in a video now on YouTube for the Christian group the Forerunner Chronicles, in which he says his character isn't worth playing and the show is not only unwatchable, but is actively working against wholesomeness. The Juice* has been saying this for years, but has anyone listened?
"Jake from Two And a Half Men means nothing. He is a non-existent character," Jones says in the video (about the 7:30 mark). "If you watch Two And a Half Men, please stop watching Two And a Half Men. I'm on Two And a Half Men and I don't want to be on it. Please stop watching it. Please stop filling your head with filth. Please. People say it’s just entertainment. ... 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 on television. It's bad news."
He continues by saying Lucifer is using the show to ruin your life. Just because it's full of womanizing and drug use and characters unable to function as productive adults, we guess.
"If I am doing any harm, I don't want to be here. I don't want to contribute to the enemy's plan ... You cannot be a true God-fearing person and be on a television show like that. I know I can't. I'm not okay with what I'm learning, what the bible says and being on that television show."
Jones gave testimony in October at the Voice of Prophecy in L.A., where the 19-year-old goes to services, the Hollywood Reporter says. It seems he's really dissatisfied with the $350,000 he's making per episode. Even the raise he's due for the 10th season doesn't seem to be enough. Good thing Lorre had Jake join the army, then.
