Born-Again Christian Actor Angus T. Jones Calls 'Two and a Half Men' Ungodly 'Filth': VIDEO


Actor Angus T. Jones, who makes $350,000 an episode on Two and a Half Men, appears in a new video describing how he became a born-again Christian and urges people to NOT watch his show any longer.

Says Jones:

Please stop filling your head with filth. Please. People say it’s just entertainment. The fact that it’s 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 the television…It’s bad news. I don’t know if it means any more coming from me. But you might have heard it otherwise. But watch out…A lot of people don’t like to think how deceptive the enemy is. He’s been doing this a lot longer than any of us have been around…You cannot be a true, God-fearing person and be on a show like that.

It's unclear what's going to happen between Jones and producers, TMZ reports:

We've learned Angus has not contacted any of the show honchos to express his intentions, nor have any of his reps done the same.  Although Angus says in the video he doesn't want to be on the show anymore, that message has not been conveyed to show execs.

On the other side, we've learned Chuck Lorre, the brains behind the show, has not played his hand ... even to Warner Bros. executives.  Today could be telling, because there's a scheduled rehearsal this AM.  It's unclear if Angus is supposed to be there, but if he's a no-show his absence could be the first step toward the door.

  1. Oh, i don't think he is another Kirk Cameron. Kirk was very popular back them, and he has some kind of charisma. I don't know why people watch Two and a half men, but the character of this guy is probably the most annoying and boring teen in the history of tv.
    They can kill his character tomorrow and i doubt noone complaints

  2. He's asked the network to fire him. Let's hope they will oblige. Evangelical christians are assholes.

  3. Avoided drugs/alcohol, but got hooked by religion. He might well have been better off as a meth addict.

  4. He doesn't want people to watch his "dirty, filthy show", but he has no problem staying on the "dirty, filthy show" and cashing their "dirty, filthy" checks.

    Typical religious hypocrite: The Almighty God takes a backseat to The Almighty Dollar.

  5. Jones should be careful about the game he's playing. It would be very easy to write a new "half-man" into the show by having a previously unknown spawn of the late Charlie character show up on the doorstep.

  6. I don't think it's accurate to call him an Evangelical. He's a Seventh-Day Adventist, a denomination many Evangelicals see as a cult (the pot calling the kettle black)

  7. Charlie Sheen managed to prove that NOBODY is indispensable on that show. Jones is another example showing that sense doesn't always accompany dollars.

  8. A.... That preacher is screwing him

    B.... If he wants to blame somebody he should blame his parents for putting him on the show which is raunchy and repeats an early hour when kids can see it . The show is also very funny

  9. This comment on another blog explains well why the show is actually a crap!:

    "Producer Chuck Lorre brand; call it "50 percent sweet
    and 50
    percent vulgar, plus or minus 30 percent depending on the show," or
    possibly "the comedy that the plurality of Americans like, whether you
    personally think it's clever or not," or possibly "comedy for people who
    hate critics." (In fairness, both the leads on Mike & Molly and the
    cast of The Big Bang Theory are often spoken of kindly even in critical
    circles, even when the shows they're on are less so.) But in another
    Lorre executes a kind of comedy that can vary enormously in both tone
    and quality – in part because he created these shows with different

    Two And A Half Men is a product largely of Lorre's
    with Lee Aronsohn, who was behind the "enough ladyjokes!" controversy
    that happened this spring. Aronsohn displayed at that time (and
    essentially acknowledged) a distrust of women that comes through loud
    and clear on the show, which he agreed during that controversy is about
    men and the women responsible. Men remains a pretty nasty,
    angry show, and by far the one with the most consistently juvenile

    Anyhoo, anything associated w/ Sheen creeps me out anyway!

  10. @Ratbastard, EWWW! Really? He floats your boat!? He looks like a sadder mirror universe drew carry.

  11. I barely knew who he was before this new revelation, therefore I never grew any connection to him nor the stupid show he's on. I consider myself lucky.

  12. Actions over words. If he truly believe what he preached who would stop contributing to a show he claims is trash (which I kinda agree, but only because I don;t like that kind of humor).

  14. Angus is gay and can't handle it...

    Posted by: MrP | Nov 27, 2012 4:24:53 PM

  15. If he was really serious he would quit the show and donate his entire fortune that he made while on it to charity. HYPOCRITE, just like 99% of Christianists out there who want to dictate to everyone else how they should live.

  16. This ignorant little pissant Angus has been making $350,000.00 per episode. If they make 30 episodes a year that is $10,500,000.00. You know that Black/African American Bible thumper sitting next to him sees $$$ signs when he looks at Angus. What is Angus going to do to repent for all the "evil" he fostered in appearing on that dog and pony show? Listen to what Angus said and you will see that belief in the Bible is the root cause of so much ignorance in the world. On another note: can you imagine that this kid was making around 10 million a year when the POTUS makes in salary and expense accounts less than 3/4 of one million dollars a year. Working and middle class Americans should stop supporting these excessively overpaid actors, rock stars and athletes.

  17. Oh yea, Angus should tell his "Black" church friends who don't call themselves African Americans because they were not born in Africa that they are uninformed. I call myself an Irish American. I wasn't born in Ireland, my grandparents were. Ireland is where my roots are. Where my ancestors lived. Same is true of African Americans or Italian Americans or Polish Americans etc etc etc.

  18. Mr. Jones is no "hypocrite." He is someone who changed his beliefs. People do this all the time. Hasn't he said that he wants to be released from his contract? A hypocrite would be someone who continues to earn money off "filth" when he is legally free to avoid doing so. We dont' have to like this young man's beliefs, but he has a right to his life choices. And he is only advising people not to watch the show, not calling for the FCC to pull it from the airwaves. I respect his decisions and am glad he's speaking out. The Left needs to remember that tolerance goes both ways.

  19. I saw this on one of the Hollywood news shows. He seems like a pernicious little closet case, like Kirk or Caiden Gowger. (sp?) Just wait: I bet they drop him from the show (which is a unwatchable POS btw) because someone this young doesn't get to bite the hand that feeds them. He'll end up in the Kirk Cameron doldrums of only doing insignificant right-wing propaganda films.

    Posted by: EchtKultig | Nov 27, 2012 8:58:08 PM

  20. Mary, sweetie dahling...if he had real convictions he'd instantly quit his "evil" show and kiss his millions a year goodbye. Believe me, they would be HAPPY to release him from his contract. Look at how quickly they released Charlie Sheen. Please, why try to defend scum like this? Tolerance does go BOTH ways...I'm not saying this vile little closet case can't go marry a beard, or can't attend the wackadoodle church of his choice. I am perfectly _tolerant_ in calling him a hypocritical POS, which is what he is.

    Posted by: EchtKultig | Nov 27, 2012 9:09:56 PM

  21. Echtkultig, why are you so sure they'd be happy to release him from his contract? I don't know the situation (i.e. how they feel about him, how his departure would affect the show,etc..) but I assume that if being released from contract were as easy as you say he'd have just asked them. He must know that it looks hypocritical to stay on the show while preaching against the show. Jones certainly can't need the money. Why would he open himself up to hypocrisy charges like this?

    Posted by: Mary | Nov 27, 2012 9:35:39 PM

  22. Mary - He's already broken his contract. Contracts include a reasonable requirement not to do things that diminish the other party's ability to profit. In any event, he's completely unchristian and therefore a hypocrite as well. He's just being a sanctimonious holier than thou. Christ demanded that his followers DO things. Specifically in the Gospel according to John he states that when you see a man who needs clothes or food you must give him those things if you can. Christ does not judge and says that even if you don't believe in him you can get to heaven if you FOLLOW his teachings and example. Angus could feed a lot of LA homeless probably for a year with even one of those checks.

  23. If the show is so ungodly to him, he should:
    1) Definitely quit when his contract is up
    2) Take all of the "blood money" he received from the show and donate it to the poor.

    Posted by: acevdo | Nov 27, 2012 11:51:50 PM

  24. The kid already "apologized" for this "misunderstanding" that has transpired and said how much he loves working on the show, the fellow castmates and the production team. He's in damage control mode, because he doesn't want to give up money. This guy is complete scum all-around. Ignore him and do not watch 2 and 1/2 Men until he's no longer on air.

    Posted by: Francis | Nov 28, 2012 12:45:03 AM

  25. When Jones started on the show, he was a classic "cute but dumb" kid. He's outgrown the "cute." The show's premise (and title) require a real child in that role.
