Christian Cast Member Angus T. Jones of “Two and a Half Men” Tells Fans … “Please stop watching it and filling your head with filth.”
Hmm, and now for something completely different …
Angus T. Jones, a Christian cast member of “Two and a Half Men” tells his fans in the below Youtube video, “Please stop watching it and filling your head with filth.” The actor also went on to say, ”I’m on ‘Two and a Half Men’ and I don’t want to be on it.” I hate to be critical of someone who is basically stating the truth of the demeaning value of a TV show, but I would ask what is stopping you from leaving and giving up your paycheck if this show and its message gets in the way of your beliefs? Just asking. I understand that the actor is still under contract for another year, but its not like other actors have not left the show … can you say Charlie Sheen and Winning!
Jones has played Jake, a sarcastic kid who lives with his single dad (Jon Cryer), since the hugely successful series launched in 2003. As one of the highest-paid teens, he takes home around $8 million annually, about $350,000 per episode.
From FOX News:
Move over Charlie Sheen, another “Two and a Half Men” controversy is exploding.
Angus T. Jones, who has played the role of Jake Harper, “the half” on the hit CBS show since 2003, is featured in a new video for the Forerunner Christian Church, in which he calls the sitcom “filth” that contradicts his devout Christian values.
That’s not all. The 19-year-old actor, who reportedly earns $350,000 an episode, even urges fans to stop watching.
“I’m on ‘Two and a Half Men’ and I don’t want to be on it,” he said. “If you watch ‘Two and a Half Men,’ please stop watching it and filling your head with filth. 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.” (more)
This dude will have a bit more credibility if he finds a way to break his contract and leaves the show. Until then, it’s just words.
