‘Two And A Half Men’ star Angus T. Jones thinks people should stop watching ‘Two And A Half Men,’ calls it ‘Filth
          

19-year-old Angus T. Jones, who plays the “half-a-man” on “Two And A Half Men” thinks that the show is pure “filth,” that he doesn’t want to be on it anymore, and everyone should stop watching it.

He really opens up about his feelings about his job in a video interview with religion website Forerunner Chronicles:

“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.

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 on television. It’s bad news.”

Will he be fired over this?

Entertainment Weekly says that while he may be in breach of his contract, it’s unlikely that he’ll be fired because it’s such a popular show and he’s such an integral part in it. He currently rakes in about $300,000 an episode, so it seems by now he’s probably made enough money to retire even at the tender age of 19.

So why doesn’t he do that if he’s so dissatisfied?

If he doesn’t quit or get fired, that’s gonna be one awkward set. Maybe more awkward than when Charlie Sheen was going up in flames.

      These religious fanatics are always easily bought. This is the type of bs that gives people of faith a bad name (lol I’m not one of them, but its true).

      Once I heard him chime on about the bible, that explained everything for me. I have never watched this show and never will, not because it’s “filth,” but because I just think it sucks. If he is referring to it as filth as far as religion and belief is concerned, then he is a jackass. Something isn’t filth because it goes against his beliefs, it would be filth if it were unethical or morally compromising.

        This comment makes no sense whatsoever. If your beliefs tell you that something is immoral and unethical, then how are you a “jackass” for stating your opinion that it is filth? Everything this kid said is true – this program and most of what passes for entertainment on television these days is filth and is corrupting people’s minds. Just like at psychological studies about what is happening to your brain when you are engaged in watching television.

      That show made his career. It’s easy to be so self ritcheous and judgemental when you have so much money to fall back on. If he feels so strongly about it then maybe he should donate all the money he made from that “filth”

      • kt

        awesome point! but I don’t think he has access to the majority of the money, I’m sure his parents do.

    • Mel

      Good for him!!! I only watched a half of a show and knew it was trash! Sounds like a smart young man!

      Why is there so much irrational hatred for Christianity in this world? This kid is contractually obligated to finish out his contract. A contract is a promise. Breaking a promise is lying. He is in a difficult position and is handling it the best he can by fulfilling his moral obligation to finish his contract while at the same time speaking out against something that is bothering him. He has 100 times more courage than all of the haters calling him a religious “zealot” or “freak.”

        um.. no one has irrational hatred for christianity, it essentially rules the world, our presidents have been some form- christian, catholic, etc… try being a muslim. if you think people hate christianity, you are delusional.

        • Nathan

          Tiff – read many of the comments on this article. Or better yet, go to the Yahoo article on this story and read the comments. It’s pretty obvious that their is a lot of hatred towards Christianity out there. And, no, I’m not delusional.

          • tiff

            no one is saying he can’t be religious, but he’s pretty much biting the hand that feeds him and being hypocritical in the process. if he considers it filth.. why doesn’t he just leave? oh yeah, because it’s all about money.

    • Brittany

      If he wants to quit doesn’t make him self righteous. It means he possibly has convictions and truly doesn’t want to be apart of it anymore. Good for him !!! People need to get over it and if your upset because he dislikes a certain role and you won’t have your show anymore maybe you could use a few more hours out of front of the television. To do something more constructive with your time.

        Very Cool though.

      if he is a true christian then he knows that ‘god’ preaches to help the needy and will give all his earnings to the needy. Hes been in that show since he was a little kid and his parents knew what this show was going to about and still let him be part oh this. It does not make sense what so ever. Money talks and his parents wanted the money.

    • Burkey

      If you think about it this kid was young when he started the show and might not have fully understood its content until he got older, he also may have formed his religious and ethical beliefs and morals as he got older as most people do and has come to the realization that he does not necassarily agree with whats on the show. Or maybe he just misses Charlie Sheen and wants to leave now that he’s gone lol!

      “Oh boo hoo, I’m making 300k an episode and am being forced to be on a show produced by Satan”. Bleah, he’s been old enough to know what the show was about for at least the last 5 years. He could have quit then as children cannot legally sign a contract. Of course 5 years ago was also about 30 million dollars ago and who is going to pass up 30 million dollars. I find his new found ‘religion’ to be highly suspicious, all he had to do was come out and say that he no longer wants to be on the show due to his new beliefs, he didn’t have to go off on this diatribe. Idiot.

      There’s nothing wrong with him being open about his personal convictions. It’s an uncommon yet refreshing thing to find someone, especially in young Hollywood, who shows a sense of morality. It did, however, come across as very unappreciative. Considering he’s still under contract he probably should’ve been more selective as to how he expressed that his moral compass differs from what is reflected on the show.
