2 and a Half Men actor slams show as ‘filth’


An actor on “Two and a Half Men” has lashed out at his own hit US television show, urging viewers to stop “filling your head with filth,” after apparently undergoing a religious revelation.

Nineteen-year-old Angus T. Jones, who reportedly earns $350,000 an episode playing the character Jake in the show starring Ashton Kutcher, made the comments in Christian testimony recorded in his production trailer.

“Jake from ‘Two and a Half Men’ means nothing. He is a nonexistent character …,” Jones said, in an extended video posted by the Forerunner Christian Church on YouTube on Monday, according to the Los Angeles Times.

“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,” he added.

Jones signed up for a new one-year-contract in May for “Two and a Half Men” — whose former central star Charlie Sheen was sacked after he underwent a public meltdown — the LA Times said.

“Please stop watching it; stop filling your head with filth. Please. People say it’s just entertainment,” he said in the video.

“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, and especially with what you watch.”

Sheen was replaced by Kutcher last year on the top-rated TV show, after he criticized its producers in a series of increasingly colourful and apparently drug-fueled media appearances.

A spokesman for Warner Bros, which produces the show along with CBS, declined to comment. “We are not commenting on the comments made by Angus T. Jones,” spokesman Paul McGuire told AFP.

Jones said in the newly-posted video: “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.

“There’s no playing around when it comes to eternity,” he added.

    Wow, I got some laughs out of the show over the years. My Mom enjoyed watching the character Jake grow up, but the last episode I saw, wich had that Disney girl in it, Jake was in the Army, and AWOL so he could have sex with her, made me realize they had gone a bit to far. His dad approved, or at least diddn’t do anything but turn the music up, kind of over the top. I’m no Christen right winger, or liberal left, but it was not something I approve my son to watch. Angus, I agree with your sentiments, but if I was being paid 350,000 an ep do neck with hanna montana, I’d probably roll with it, and complain later.

  • Mr. Duh

    Was he forced to act on the show? Was he forced to take $350,000 an episode? What a hypocrite. He should quit if he doesn’t like the show.

  • The Man

    He is just a clueless brainwashed kid.

  • David Quintana

    Hypocrisy anyone.

    Angus is free to express his religious freedom just like any of us. Surely at 19, he can distinguish between right and wrong.

  • Some of the biggest perpetrators of filth and attrocities have been conducted under the “Christian Umbrella”. Read a few history books, and you will see the Christians are probably the most violent, blood thirsty, hypocritical, judgemental, group over the last thousand years or so. Seriously…. certainly NOT the example Jesus (A Jew – who by the way the Christians persecuted for thousands of years – because the “Jews killed Jesus” according to the christians) tried to set for us all to live and thrive in peaceful harmony with each other and the world that gives us life.

    Whether you found GOD or not… you should know what you believe in, and you should be able to filter. Angus is 19 and young enough to not truly understand that he is slamming the very vehicle that elevated him to become credible to the Christian’s in the first place.

    There are much more important things going on in the world, than whether “Jake” found God this year… he is 19, next year, it will be something else… part of growing up. If he is really serious about his “Change” then let’s wait and see what he does next to make the world a better place for all… not just narrow minded Christian’s who seem to forget that there is an entire planet trying to survive. Creating meaningful change to the world, is not arrogantly trying to convert people to Christianity…. that is what has caused all the wars and violence in the first place.
