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.
"I'm on 'Two and a Half Men' and I don't want to be on it,” he said. "If you watch 'Two and a Half Men,' please stop watching it and 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."
Jones goes on to express guilt that his profession may be inflicting serious damage on its audience.
"If I am doing any harm, I don't want to be here. I don't want to be contributing to the enemy's plan ... You cannot be a true God-fearing person and be on a television show like that. I know I can't,” he continued. “I'm not OK with what I'm learning, what the Bible says and being on that television show."

Angus Jones got a conscience about what he's promoting on Two and One Half men and told his audience to quit watching. He bases his values on the Bible and doesn't want to do harm to anyone. Do you agree with what he's doing or do you think this another Charlie Sheen stunt?

I would say this is his parting statement. A producer wouldn't want this type of publicity. Jones grew up got a conscience about what he's doing. Adults do that, responsiblie ones anyway.

Yes, it's very easy to light up somebody once they've already given you tens of millions of dollars and you no longer have any use for them.

But of course, he's a God-fearing Christian, and even soul-deep hypocrisy can be forgiven, right?

I don't even watch the show, never have sat through a single episode... but I don't need to be a fan to know this guy is full of shit.

He's got a year's contract left to run, Maybe he should have thought this through. But then his "church" put this on youtube, maybe he has less control than he thinks.

Well maybe he's thinking his confession of his faults might make what he thinks is wrong will become right. Donating all his money would send a bigger message or he will look like a hypocrite.

Pretty sure they can break a contract if there is an action like this. Charlie Sheen was cut off his contract due to his actions

This is interesting: though he is a Chistian fundie, if you guys are to be believed, according to Wikipedia

Jones also supports the anti-bullying alliance co-founded by The Creative Coalition and WWE, B.A. Star whose mission is to ensure a positive and equitable social environment for everyone regardless of age, race, religion or sexual orientation through grassroots efforts beginning with education and awareness.

Aren't Christian fundamentalists, and indeed all religious fundamentalists, supposed to be homophobes?
