Angus T. Jones: I Don't Want to Be on 'Two and a Half Men'

Angus T. Jones has spoken out against his hit CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men and has expressed his desire to leave the show.

“Jake from Two and a Half Men means nothing. He is a non-existent character,” the 19-year-old actor said in a video for the Forerunner Christian Church (via THR). “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 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.”

“If I am doing any harm, I don’t want to be here. I don’t want to be contributing to the enemy’s plan … You cannot be a true God-fearing person and be on a television show like that. I know I can’t. I’m not OK with what I’m learning, what the bible says and being on that television show,” Angus added. He also called the show “the enemy,” presumably referring to Satan.

Angus, who has starred on Two and a Half Men for the past ten years, reportedly makes $350,000 an episode.

    what the heck is he talking about??? he’s been on the show for ten years and now he’s coming out with this nonsense?

    Jeez. This is really creepy. I feel like this kid is being manipulated a bit – I find it really unfortunate that this church has taped this and released it. If he feels the show is detrimental to his well being, he should be allowed to leave, but these kind of theatrics used to preach to people using teenaged kids is really gross.

    Kirk Cameron 2.0 everyone!

    Really though this kinda came out of left field. You mean all of a sudden he thinks this show is ‘evil’ and wants people to stop watching? It’s suspicious and weird.

    WTF, you have no trouble accepting that $350,000 check every week though. SMH.

    what??? Says:

    it’s so sad how he’s putting down the show that made him rich. Has he thought of how these statements will affect his costars, Jon Cryer and Ashton Kutcher to name a few, also Charlie Sheen who he worked with for so many years?? this is what I can’t stand about these extreme religious groups. The judgmental crap, is what irks the hell out of me. how insensitive and hypocritical of him.

    So, to which charity is he going to donate the money he’s earned from the show? I’ll wait…
    Now that he’s set for the rest of his life, he’s got something to say about how bad the show it? Don’t get me wrong, I don’t watch this crap but i can’t stand rich people and their self-righteousness
    #hypocrite

    Kenny Says:

    Good for him!!! People dont stand for anything anymore.
    He was only a kid when he started, which meant someone else manimuplated a kid on being on this kind of adult show.. Usually the parents. Now that he is old enough and aware of what goes on in Hollywood he doesnt want to do it anymore. Why is a kid on that type of show for 10 years with the type of story lines it has? Its was too mature.

    That whole show is bull$hit anyway. I don’t know why people think Two and a half men is even funny. That show isn’t funny at all. I guess people like $hit these days. And on top of that this kid can’t act for $hit. He sucks. Damn those millions though. Waste.

    Sarah. Says:

    Wow.. wasn’t he the kid who earned the most money? Mygoodness, be thankful for what it gave you. He doesn’t need to worry about money. 10 years on the show and now he talks like that about the show? Unprofessional. I can’t stand that.

    the ghost of the kids actors Says:

    hey Angus do you remember Macaulay Culkin, the home alone kid? or Erik Per Sullivan and Frankie Muniz, the Malcolm in the middle guys? What about Amanda Bynes? they all have amazing careers after they left their First Big Thing, right? watch out, dont spit up, if you leave two and a half you’ll be in their club, or even worst, you’ll be just Stalker Sarah’s friend.

    Pattycake Says:

    If this is the way he feels, then I sympathize with him. Sure, he’s made money, lots of it, over the years, for his family and manager and agents, as well as himself. But those decisions were made for him and now he’s ready to make his own.

    Uh oh. Someone drank the Flavor-aid and got all culty brainwashed. Religious extremism even Christian Extremism isn’t good for anyone. Least of all teen actors who weren’t provided a proper education or guidance by their parents. I predict he’ll go from this “church” to either Kirk Cameron’s ministry or he join up with Tom Cruise and the rest of the Space Clams. Very sad.

    Sunny Says:

    I have never watched that show, and I will probably never watch it, but this kid seems like another troubled child actor have a psychiatric breakdown in public.

    This dude sounds like a nut case. Is he on drugs or in some strange religious cult?

    yeaa Says:

    The Illuminati? I’m very confused about his change of heart. On one side I feel the need to support him if he wants to stand by his faith. On the other, he has made MILLIONS off of this show and his character. This reminds me of Chapelle’s (sp?) Show when he turned down $50 million. They said he was crazy. Hollywood is weird and evil.
