Angus Jones (Jake on 2.5 Men) calls his show "filth"

Angus T. Jones Calls Two and a Half Men 'Filth,' Urges Fans to Stop Watching

http://tvline.com/2012/11/26/angus-t...n-controversy/

Quote:
Two and a Half Men appears to have another personnel problem on its hands.

Nearly two years after Charlie Sheen began a very public meltdown that led to his dismissal and almost brought down the CBS comedy, a new video has surfaced in which co-star Angus T. Jones refers to Men as “filth” and pleads with viewers to turn the channel.

“If you watch Two and a Half Men, please stop watching Two and a Half Men,” he says in the following clip, a religious testimonial in support of Forerunner Chronicles. “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,” continues the actor, who reportedly pockets a cool $350,000 an episode. ”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.”

No comment yet from Warner Bros., CBS or exec producer Chuck Lorre.

This latest Men controversy comes three months into what could (and now seems very likely to) be the show’s final season.

How hard would it be for him to leave the show if he feels that way? Can he not buy out his contract?

He could snort some coke, walk around with strippers, and start a one man tour trying to be funny and outrageous.

It's a religious group.

The kid is right, it is filth*. But it's his day job, and one should be careful how one speaks about one's job. Don't like it? Find a way to quit. Under contract? Then think twice before you speak.

But these are logical arguments, and he's just a kid.



*and I watch it every week

If it will help him clear his conscience, I'd be more than willing to take all the money he made from that "filth" off his hands...

Or, he could donate his huge salary to charity and live like a monk.

Plus, he's barely on the show anymore. If they could kill off the star, having him disappear would be no problem.

Next Kirk Cameron?
Why can't he just quit and forefit his salary and royalties? If he is that adamant about it just give it up.
Interesting knowing the rumors a couple weeks ago that he was a) either trying to "save" Miley Cyrus while she was on the show or b) he was trying to bang her
Whatever dude, if you hate it that much just walk out

Could it be he is trying to get his name out there before the show ends? I have never watched this show but I know who the "men" are. I have never heard the kids name before. Me think he wants some name recognition before his show comes to a close.

He's been in the show for what, nine years and he's just now figuring out that it's dirty?

Or that it's a large part of why people watch it?

He could ask to be released from his contract.
In this case, I don't see why Lorre and company wouldn't release him.

Depends on who you ask.
Some quick internet research shows the guy to be a Seventh Day Adventist preacher.

I don't think he can just quit. They might be able to sue him for breach of contract or something.

I watched the show for a number of years. The show was filthy for sure. I don't mind filth though.

If he is having a true religious thing, then I hope he can figure things out. If not, I hope he isn't doing something he'll regret later in life.

This, of course.

He's the highest paid child actor in television. Chances are this show has been very good to him and he will never have to worry about affording health insurance or choosing between food and heat.

That said, I cannot help but wonder how much being on the set of this show all his formative years has affected him. He grew up next to Charlie which had to influence him. Never mind Lorre! Other folks around, sure, but people with larger than life personalities have a way of leaving lasting impressions.
Perhaps he has just over-corrected and will straighten out in time.

Hopefully, this is just a phase and/or a bit of rebellion.
But one of the biggest lessons in life is when to keep your mouth shut.
Since Charlie's meltdown featured a highly overactive blabbermouth, one would have thought Angus would have learned that lesson right then and there.
Guess not.
He will.
