Angus T. Jones Apologizes for Trashing 'Two and a Half Men'

Two and a Half Men star Angus T. Jones has released a statement apologizing for statements he made in a video touting his Christian religious awakening and calling his show "filth" and urging viewers not to watch it.

Writes Jones: Angus_t_jones

I have been the subject of much discussion, speculation and commentary over the past 24 hours. While I cannot address everything that has been said or right every misstatement or misunderstanding, there is one thing I want to make clear. Without qualification, I am grateful to and have the highest regard and respect for all of the wonderful people on Two and Half Men with whom I have worked and over the past 10 years who have become an extension of my family.

Chuck Lorre, Peter Roth and many others at Warner Bros. and CBS are responsible for what has been one of the most significant experiences in my life to date. I thank them for the opportunity they have given and continue to give me and the help and guidance I have and expect to continue to receive from them. I also want all of the crew and cast on our show to know how much I personally care for them and appreciate their support, guidance and love over the years. I grew up around them and know that the time they spent with me was in many instances more than with their own families. I learned life lessons from so many of them and will never forget how much positive impact they have had on my life.

I apologize if my remarks reflect me showing indifference to and disrespect of my colleagues and a lack of appreciation of the extraordinary opportunity of which I have been blessed. I never intended that.

As for Jones' status on the show:

Jones wasn't at the studio lot for a rehearsal on Tuesday. He's not scheduled to appear on the two episodes that are being filmed before the end of the year, said a person close to the show who spoke on condition of anonymity because Warner Bros. and CBS haven't commented publicly on Jones. His character has recently joined the Army and his airtime has been cut down.

And Charlie Sheen has commented on the Jones controversy, telling People, "With Angus's Hale-Bopp-like meltdown, it is radically clear to me that the show is cursed."


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.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...
