Just over a month and a half after releasing a video online dubbing the show he co-starred in as "filth," Angus T. Jones is set to return to CBS' "Two and a Half Men."
Executive producer Chuck Lorre confirmed that the actor is returning to the set of the popular sitcom next week to film his first episode since his controversial statements. In the video, Jones implored viewers of the CBS comedy, "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."
While many saw the month and a half hiatus that followed as a sign of Jones' impending exit from the series, Lorre insisted that it was all water under the bridge. “He’s part of our show. He’s part of our family. We love him,” Lorre said. "He’s 19, man. Cut him some slack... I can't really disagree with him — the show’s kind of filthy. What he said wasn’t wrong... We hope it’s funny, as well."
Joining the actor will be a new love interest for his character, played by Emmy winner Jaime Pressly. In the guest role, the "My Name Is Earl" actress Pressly will portray Jake’s 'cougar' girlfriend from the sticks of South Dakota.
