Angus T. Jones is pleading with his fans to STOP watching “Two and a Half Men” claiming it is nothing but ‘filth’ that contradicts his Christian values.
The 19-year-old star of CBS’s hit show, said he no longer wants to be on the show. “Please stop watching it. Please stop filling your head with filth,” he says in a video, posted by the Forerunner Christian Church in California, which is part of the Seventh-day Adventist movement.
Jones, who makes $350,000 per episode playing Jake – is featured in a new video for the Forerunner Chronicles.
”If you watch Two and a Half Men, please stop watching. I’m on Two and a Half Men and I don’t want to be on it’, says Jones.
His comments are likely to attract ire from the show’s co-creator Chuck Lorre and his bosses at Warner Brothers, who are yet to comment.
Jones has been on the show since he was 10 and it is unclear if he has tried to quit the show. The exact details of his contract have yet to surface, however a source says CBS is looking at legal and contractual obligations in regards to canceling Angus’ contract. They’re also looking at portions of the contract regarding bringing negative attention to the network and to the show, and reviewing a moral turpitude clause.
In another part of the video, Jones says the type of entertainment he is involved in adversely affects the brain, adding: “there’s no playing around when it comes to eternity”.
“You cannot be a true God-fearing person and be on a television show like that,” he said. “I know I can’t. I’m not OK with what I’m learning, what the Bible says, and being on that television show.”
In the video the young star laughs as he admits his worried family have likened his recent ‘awakening’ to the Seventh-day Adventist movement to joining a ‘cult’.
‘Of course all my family, not all my family, but some of my family were like “he’s going to a cult” trying to tell me to get out of there,’ said Jones.
