‘Two and a Half Men’ Is Stupid, Says ‘Two and a Half Men’ Star

BY RELEVANT CULTURE / ISSUE 62 / TV February 15, 2013

Although Angus T. Jones’ name might lead you to believe he’s a 200-year-old Confederate general in the War of Northern Aggression, he’s actually the titular “half” of CBS’ Two and a Half Men. The 19-year-old’s career was thrown into jeopardy recently when Forerunner Christian Church posted a video testimonial that found Jones begging viewers to “please stop watching” his show, saying it’s “filling your head with filth.”

It’s hard to argue with that assessment, but either Jones’ business sense or his appreciation for that $300,000-plus-per-episode paycheck he garners kicked in, because the young star apologized profusely shortly after the video broke and went viral. Too little too late, maybe, as the show’s other star, Ashton Kutcher, reportedly demanded Jones get the boot and CBS CEO Les Moonves has hinted Jones’ future with the show is up in the air. But Charlie Sheen, the former star of the show, told ABC that his “former nephew” is welcome on his new show, Anger Management, “anytime.”
