Star of 'Two and a Half Men' Angus T. Jones urges fans to stop watching, calls show 'filth'
foxnews.com ^ | 11/26/12 | Hollie McKay

Move over Charlie Sheen. Another “Two and a Half Men” controversy is exploding.

Angus T. Jones, who has played the role of Jake Harper on the hit CBS show since 2003 and reportedly earns $350,000 an episode, is featured in a new video for the Forerunner Christian Church, in which he calls the sitcom “filth” that contradicts his devout Christian values.

That’s not all. The 19-year-old actor even urges fans to stop watching.

Well, good for him.
And he is right, the show is disgusting, plus not funny (well, don’t know about that today. When it started I think I saw two episodes and thought it would only get six weeks before cancelling)

I’m so out of it that I didn’t even know this show existed. Well bravo for him (and vastly more so for the Lord that saves him) — and the catty twitter remarks are so, so feeble. (He might well BE donating it all, but a Christian wouldn’t brag about that.)

Angus is correct. It was funny with Sheen but, ever since they fired Charlie Sheen and got Ashton Kutcher, the show is stupid, disgusting and not funny.

Good for Angus. He has grown up on that show and I am pleased that he hasn’t let it pervert his Christian values!!

I’ve only a couple of episodes and I wasn’t impressed with the series. Charlie Sheen came across to me as though he was just reciting learned lines and didn’t have any comedic timing.

When I heard that Ashton Kutcher had taken over and one of his first acts was to be fully nude on tv, I figured that would be it for tv.

He’s made his money and will probably be written out of the show. He’s no longer a 1/2 man.

I watched it a few times while overseas and it was the only English show on...Charlie Sheen came across as playing himself as he really is in real life.

I watched a couple of episodes a few years ago and found most of the subject matter to be distasteful. I was flipping through channels a couple of weeks ago and watched five minutes of the current season - I couldn’t believe it! The crap they will allow on television these days?!?!? It’s no wonder our current generation is completely screwed up!

He is right about the show, as well as crappy filth like Glee and New Normal and everything else in prime time.

I have never seen it, but before I can change the channel, the first 2 seconds have two someones in bed, or trash talking by a 10 or 12 yr old kid. That’s all I know.

Charlie Sheen (since replaced) played a character who hit it rich by penning a TV ad jingle. He is a slacker with the Midas touch who lives in a beach front home. His brother is divorced with a son and has no luck. The brother (and son) moved in to Sheen’s home. 2 1/2 men.

I noticed he attending the RNC in Miami. However, he’d have more credibility if he left the show. As it is now, it seems he is hardly on it. Wonder if he had a hand in that?

I can’t stand the show. The content of the show is typical of what the degenerates in Hollywood want the rest of the country to think is ‘normal’.

It's always been on the racy side but amazingly enough it rarely veered into utter vulgarity until Charlie Sheen left or was forced out.

The maid is hilarious and so is the mother. Too bad they didn't take the opportunity to give them a little more air time.

Ashton Kutcher was a ridiculous choice for a “replacement” character, he added nothing and adds nothing. Charlie Sheen came across as himself, for better or worse, and was believable in the role. It was almost autobiographical, or it was plausible to think it was. Kutcher is not believable in the role, can't act, isn't funny and the stupid shines right through, so he's ultimately being himself because he just can't help it.

I am guessing he will have no future in Hollywierd from here on out.

That being said, I understand that there is a great new Christian movie production company in Athens Ga, at the Sherwood Baptist Church.

It’s called “Sherwood Pictures”, and they have made some very good movies like “Fireproof”, “Flywheel”, “Facing The Giants”, “Courageuous” and others.

I am sure they are on the lookout for good actors that want to help make high quality movies that help proclaim the Gospel to a lost world.

The part that Ashton Kutcher is playing is just ridiculous. As I understand it, he’s playing the part of a successful internet mogul, who is a billionaire.

Why would a billionaire share accommodations?

Aside from the rude and crude, it would have been far better to play the part of a guy who lost his job and started up an internet company. There is far more comedy potential from somebody who is struggling, then somebody who is wildly successful.

I've never seen the show, but I just googled how many episodes and there have been 209. $350,000*209=$73150000

Not too shabby.

Generally, the only time I’ve caught the show is when I’m traveling, stuck in a motel, with no internet, and so bored to tears that I turn on the tv-set. I don’t think I’ve ever sat through an entire episode, as within minutes, the show will make my skin crawl.

Really, really sick, degenerate crap. I actually try rather hard to avoid such putrid fare, because invariably it’s just so intensely depressing to observe and then reflect on how American culture has so grotesquely devolved. It’s like an open sewer.

I agree. The wise cracking maid and the mother were the funniest characters on the show. I rather enjoyed the show when Charlie Sheen was on it, haven’t really watched it much since – not so funny anymore. But is it a family friendly show? No. Is it something I’d want my five year old niece to watch? No. Do I always want to watch family friendly or shows only appropriate for my great grandmother or for a five year old? No!

When my grandmother used to come to visit, we’d have to watch the Lawrence Welk Show and Highway to Heaven – talk about cruel and unusual punishment. LOL!

Nobody is forcing anyone who finds offensive to watch it.

I also very much like the Big Bang Theory BTW.

Big Bang Theory is very well written, with some of the best realized characters on any network television sitcom airing today. Very funny. Witty and intelligent. Somewhat adult, but I wouldn’t qualify it as ever having been vulgar or trashy.

Maybe he’s coming to some conclusions about things. First, though, he needs to live his convictions before giving counsel to others. Give up the $350K gig, kid, and take a stand.

He has not been written out.

Even with Sheen it was tending towards the disgusting, but he was able to pull it off without going so far off the deep end. Since Kushner stepped in, they have been going more for the "shock" of more explicit vs. double entendre and even been delving into the homo slant. Bravo for Angus - I'll have to research his church to see how legit it is - the video with his arm around the other dude's shoulder made me think possible cult, but that's just because he's young and just learning to really think for himself.
