Angus T. Jones wants you to stop watching 'Two and a Half Men'
Angus T. Jones, better known as the lovable Jake on the past ten seasons of CBS' multi-camera comedy 'Two and a Half Men,' thinks the show that made him rich and famous is "filth." And he isn't keeping that opinion to himself: in a recent interview, Jones pleads with viewers to stop watching the series, which he apparently no longer wants to be a part of.
'Two and a Half Men' can't seem to escape controversy. After losing the series' star Charlie Sheen two years ago after a drug-addled meltdown, the nineteen-year-old Jones is now biting the hand that feeds him $300,000 per episode.
'Two and a Half Men' has been a ratings smash and a CBS mainstay for a decade. Over the past ten seasons, viewers have watched Jake Harper (and by proxy, Jones himself) grow up on television. We've seen his voice crack, his face begin to grow stubble... but along the way we missed his spiritual awakening.
That's right, Jones has found Christ, and he now views 'Two and a Half Men' as "the enemy," aligned with Satan himself. In an interview with Christian organization Forerunner Chronicles (available below), Jones describes his religious awakening and (around the 7:37 mark) takes aim at his own show.
"Jake from 'Two and a Half Men' means nothing," says Jones, continuing "he is [a] non-existant character." But the former child-star wasn't done:
"'Two and a Half Men'--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."
As the interview continues, Jones urges his fans to research the effect of television on their brains, seemingly aligning all of television with Satan. "A lot of people don’t like to think about how deceptive the enemy is. He’s been doing this for a lot longer than any of us have been around."
So far, neither CBS nor Warner Bros TV--who produce 'Two and a Half Men'--have issued any comment concerning Jones' remarks. Forerunner Chronicles (a website packed with spelling, grammatical and factual errors at a cursory glance) posted the interview on youtube, which is available below.
Damn straight. But, let'snot give him any ideas - it's better that much of that money sits there, doing nothing (like money of the rich mostly does), then it being used to further advance the cause of religious fundamentalism. We have enough religious propaganda to last us Iran time.

Can you say hypocrite.
If the show is so against his beliefs then put your money where your mouth is, sure he has a contract but come on people get out of contracts all the time by negotiating a deal paying back the money or whatever so it's absolutely doable.
But to say things like that while quite happily collecting more money pr. episode than most americans make in a whole year just shows you as a spoiled brat and a hypocrite

so, two and a half men becomes two and a half brains.
maybe its time for the writers to burden him with his fictional beliefs in the show and then weekly bitch slap him him with a dose of reality

You posters are a bunch of punks! It sounds like none of you believe in God. (as one person posted, ..hail Satan!) Do you know what a contract is? Have any of you ever thought that this kid is bound by a contract to stay on the show for a certain period of time? Maybe he can't just quit until he finishes however many episodes he has left to do. Just my thoughts about this. Plus, I don't care about the show!

Well, I do begrudge the guy his beliefs (if begrudge means that I think they're stupid - they, being his beliefs, all four of them). *** But I also never seen more than 2-minutes worth of this show (just didn't do it for me). *** Oh, and hail Satan!

I don't begrudge the guy his beliefs, but it's impossible to take him seriously when he continues to cash his enormous satanic paycheck.

What a punk. If he feels that way, fine. Quit. Collecting all that money while bitching about it is pretty shameful.
