What gets into these Hollywood egomaniacs? If this were the 60's or 70's, I would attribute this spewage by Angus T. Jones, the "Half" on "Two And A Half Men" to drugs and a "bad trip" but this is 2012 and the current drug of choice doesn't typically result in this type of meltdown. After becoming a multimillionaire thanks to "Men", he wants us to believe he "wants off the show". Really Angus? Then what's keeping you there? Gee, could it be the $4 million a season you're making for playing an idiot juvenile delinquent stoner with a room temperature IQ? Hell, my dog could play that role, and he's senile, deaf, mostly blind and pees on the carpet on a regular basis. In the interview, Jones says the show is "filth". Here's a suggestion Angus: If you truly feel that way, then how about if you give back all the millions of dollars of "filthy" money you've made filming such a Satan driven show? What a tool.

1. The show is practically worthless since Charles Sheen´s been gone.
2. The "Jake" character is meaningless now. Just as "Judith" is. The cute kid grew up. He is a mistake now. They sent him to the army, they should have killed him there.
3. Salary renegotiation season is on in Burbank now?
4. He wants out of his contract for whatever reason, with a juicy indemnization?
5. Another child star that bites the dust?

Sounds pretty dumb, but I can't disagree with him. Everyone should stop watching that show. But not for his reasons. It's just a terrible show.

I don´t agree with you. The first few seasons made it a pretty good show. The later ones, not so much. Still, when Sheen was fired it just became worthless.

Don't worry Jake, I stopped watching when Charlie left anyway. It's a completely different show now with Walden instead of Charlie. The whole point of the show was Charlie womanising, drinking, abusing his brother and hating his mother. Secretly we probably all looked up to Charlie and wished we lived that lifestyle.

All of that is gone now with Walden, who is just another version of Alan. Who would look up to that? He might be rich, but he's weak and pathetic.

Same opinion here.

Ever since Charlie Sheen left the show's been crap. I also believe that one of the reasons Charlie Sheen left is because he knew the show was over anyway in terms of the answer to the "where do we go from here" question.

Plus, I'm sorry, but Ashton Kutcher is just bad actor. He is, no matter how you look at it. He failed at the movies, and is now failing in a bad sitcom.

Really, they should just pull the plug on it and come up with something new.

And that Angus T. Jones guy, with his religious drivel in that video, should just stop acting then.

I think there are several background issues Angus Jones may be dealing with that has caused his current attitude of turning away from Two and A Half Men

His character was always treated as a 'dumbass', a poor student, socially clumsy and surrounded by terrible role models. Most don't like being that kind of character for so long.
He is pretty much become typecast from his TV role so may be limited in his adult acting opportunities.
He missed out on a 'normal' life like going to school, developing social skills (especially with women), being in sports or other activities.
One has to wonder if he, like many grown-up child stars, is in conflict with his parents who probably accepted the idea of him in a very adult show as I am quite sure they became addicted to the cuts of his pay for 'expenses' and managing of his income. As he is now over 18, he is rebelling like many teens as to his parents' control of his life.
Maybe too, although very rich in money, his life was empty of any real meaning, that it just was living a job with huge hours of time for years on end on the set, seeing a borderline cult religion as giving him some meaning.

I just hope he doesn't give this religious group any money, he finds happiness with a good companion, he can continue in acting in better and more challenging roles and we don't hear of him dying of drugs/alcohol abuse.

He may be contractually obligated to work for a set amount of time. If so, it's not exactly the easiest thing to get out of.

Further to that, one good movie he's been in in the past say... two-three years?

This is just my opinion, but really, I see him as an actor whose roles have been given to him just for his looks and nothing else. And even the looks aren't enough for him to get decent roles today.

His age and upbringing leads me to write this off as manipulation and youthful ignorance of the way the world works. He will wake up in 15 years and be on one of those where are they now shows working through anger and isolation issues.

Oh well. Hopefully the Social Media backlash will speed his wake up call.

He's entitiled to his new found opinion. I applaud him for standing up for his convictions not alot of people will do that in Hollywood. I do have to agree with him, that much on television today is eroding our moral sensibilities. He has contractual obligations so he can't just up and walk away and since this is just breaking it's too early for people to be calling him out as a hypocrite or being greedy. His true test will be, to see if he "practices what he preaches," what he does with all that money he will be collecting from a show that he considers vile and evil now that his opinions have changed. Another true test of his moral character will be what will he do after he leaves the show, will he leave the industry?

He can list out his convictions 'till he is blue in the face before a Christian audience, but can he stand behind those convictions in the secular world?

No idea, but he's still making movies, which means that movies with him still make money, which probably means he's not a flop as a movie star. He also landed the role of Steve Jobs in the movie Jobs.

I couldn't believe it when I read that. $300,000 an episode to do basically nothing. He plays almost no role in the show anymore and he goes ahead and blurts this out. He looked up to his "Uncle Charlie" and flipped out. All I have to say if they decide to finally pull the plug is good riddance. I loved the show when Charlie Sheen on it. I never missed an episode, but this is just killing what was a great show.

I agree with this statement. I think Jones is just trying to find a different way to get out of his contract. Sure, the guy is making great money doing the show, but when Sheen out of the picture that changes EVERYTHING. The show is not the same anymore after Sheen gone. Enter Ashton. No fault of his, but adding Ashton the show replacing Sheen just butchers it.

The producers of "Men" took a huge, HUGE gamble in getting rid of Sheen and replacing him with someone else. To me, that has backfired pretty bad on their part. They have themselves to blame for this than Ashton, Sheen and Jones. It goes to show that they did not think this one thoroughly.

I say let Jones out of his contract. Let him go do something else. After all, he deserves it with all the hell the producers put him through.

In May of this year, CBS renewed the contracts for Jones, Kuthcer, and Cryer for one year. They're currently filming episodes which will start airing after the first of the year. That means Jones should be free to leave when this round of filming is completed. Being a firm believer that actions speak louder than words, I'm curious to see if, come next May Jones truly leaves the show and his multimillion dollar salary.

Let's see if he's willing to put his money where is mouth is by not cashing the remaining paychecks he will get for the rest of this season. Same with any royalty checks he may be getting as well.

Just another child actor going off the grid in their own way once they become adults.

I wonder if he'll launch his own "violent torpedo of truth" sort of tour that visits churches around the country and rants about the show and the folks behind it?

Precisely what I was thinking. So essentially Jones pulls a Sheen without having any of the fun Sheen had in the process? Lame. Come on, Angus, at least get a few "goddesses" out of this instead of this nutball

It didn't work out for "8 rules" either. You're right, they should have just let it drop right there.

I think the rant Sheen had was much worse than what Jones did, which was pretty much nothing. Sheen has a very storied history, while Jones does not. With that said, I disagree with you.

By pulling a Sheen I meant leaving the show for whatever reason. Jones' rant is definitely milder than Sheen's. Still I'll take one of Charlie's goddesses over that whacked out pastor!
