Actor: Two and a Half Men is filth

2012-11-27 08:47
Los Angeles - An actor on Two and a Half Men has lashed out at his own hit US television show, urging viewers to stop "filling your head with filth", after apparently undergoing a religious revelation.

Nineteen-year-old Angus T Jones, who reportedly earns $350 000 an episode playing the character Jake in the show starring Ashton Kutcher, made the comments in Christian testimony recorded in his production trailer.

"Jake from Two and a Half Men means nothing. He is a nonexistent character ... ," Jones said, in an extended video posted by the Forerunner Christian Church on YouTube on Monday, according to the Los Angeles Times.

"If you watch Two and a Half Men, please stop watching Two and a Half Men. I'm on Two and a Half Men, and I don't want to be on it," he added.

'Stop filling your head with filth'

Jones signed up for a new one-year-contract in May for Two and a Half Men - whose former central star Charlie Sheen was sacked after he underwent a public meltdown - the LA Times said.

"Please stop watching it; stop filling your head with filth. Please. People say it's just entertainment," he said in the video.

"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, and especially with what you watch."

'We are not commenting'

Sheen was replaced by Kutcher last year on the top-rated TV show, after he criticised its producers in a series of increasingly colourful and apparently drug-fuelled media appearances.

A spokesperson for Warner Bros, which produces the show along with CBS, declined to comment. "We are not commenting on the comments made by Angus T Jones," spokesperson Paul McGuire told AFP.

In an apparent reference to Satan, Jones said in the newly-posted video: "A lot of people don't like to think about how deceptive the enemy is. He's been doing this for a lot longer than any of us have been around.

"There's no playing around when it comes to eternity," he added.

    Still my favourite TV comedy. Don't care what Jake says, though he seems as slow in real life as in the series.. If he really believed it was that bad, he could just leave, but I guess the money is too good.

      klippies.coke.7 - 2012-11-27 09:37

      Can't just leave... he's got a contract with "the devil" lol

      marni.van.emmenis - 2012-11-27 11:21

      A contract which he renewed in May... Therefor the money must be more important than his opinion.

    dont sh.t where u eat

      shaun.mcclelland.31 - 2012-11-28 08:38

      The wealth of the wicked is laid up for the righteous. He will use that money for evangilism

  • jrheeder - 2012-11-27 09:16

    I find it funny that you feel that way, and yet you choose to work on set? Earning that kind of $ means you're not destitute. Put your money where your mouth is, and quit.

      klippies.coke.7 - 2012-11-27 09:36

      Well, how about donating every cent he's made to the church...?

      wesley.bischoff - 2012-11-27 09:40

      Why exactly would a church need more money? They have enough as it is.

      george.frangs - 2012-11-27 10:20

      Wesley, If it was the Catholic Church, it would be so that the Pope can protect all the Pedophiles the church employs, and preach compassion sitting atop a golden throne.

  • john.retief.37 - 2012-11-27 09:21

    wow! full marks for standing up for what he believes in. He will obviously get flack from many people (those believing the opposite of himself of course) but i'm impressed

      LanfearM - 2012-11-27 09:56

      No john.retief, he didn't "stand up for what he believes in". If he really stood for what he believes in, he would have quit the show! Not just bad-mouthed it while signing another year's worth of contract and a few million dollars!

      stuart.steedman - 2012-11-27 11:43

      Actions speak louder than words, and these are just words. Pity another is lost to mindless religious drivel though.

  • george.frangs - 2012-11-27 09:22

    Hopefully the show gets cancelled. It was never funny.

      mbossenger - 2012-11-27 11:54

      Was funny until Charlie left.

  • atholl.hay - 2012-11-27 09:23

    Forgot to take his meds ....

      george.frangs - 2012-11-27 09:35

      No, Charlie Sheen stole them all...

  • rachael.vs.1 - 2012-11-27 09:24

    Really wonder if he will donate all that money he made from this sin to the poor.....and start over...

      Bob.Cee123 - 2012-11-27 16:49

      Somehow I think he will be conned into signing over all of his filthy, filthy lucre to be 'laundered' at the church.

  • Frank Hublot Einstein - 2012-11-27 09:25

    go home Jones; u r drunk

  • charlesdumbwin.dumbwin - 2012-11-27 09:27

    He'll be written out of the series shortly. Although I understand the gist of what he's saying. It's not about two and a half men, it's about the negative impact of today's godless pop-culture on our hearts and minds. I'm no stick in the mud, but I won't let my children watch a number of things on TV because it's not healthy for them. Any responsible parent would do the same.

      dracolusus - 2012-11-27 10:26

      "I'm no stick in the mud" LOLZ!!! That is rich!!!

  • craig.moir.14 - 2012-11-27 09:36

    Poor delusional child. Two And a Half Men is more real that God.

      george.frangs - 2012-11-27 09:39

      That doesn't make him less wrong, or the show less sh.t...

      Bob.Cee123 - 2012-11-27 12:22

      @ george.frangs - Yup. True. It doesn't make him less wrong. Therefore, he couldn't be more wrong.

      george.frangs - 2012-11-27 12:53

      Touche Bob...

      Bob.Cee123 - 2012-11-27 15:48

      @ Apostle Michael Howard aka '' - wouldn't you love you sink your sweaty claws into a nice cash-cow like this poor deluded kid? Oh, the milking you could do for Jesus!!

  • thethird.wors - 2012-11-27 09:38


  • wesley.bischoff - 2012-11-27 09:39

    Filth? So then he must give back all that filthy money he received from the show. Oh wait, his church needs him and his money

      rodney.louis.7 - 2012-11-27 09:53

      lol weak attempt at trolling .. too obvious man , try less grunt and more stealth..

      marius.j.rensburg.3 - 2012-11-27 09:55

      spot on, wesley!

      wesley.bischoff - 2012-11-27 10:07

      WTF are you on rodney?

      cleve.fletcher - 2012-11-27 12:09

      Yeah, they will find something in the bible to justify his ongoing participation in the show.

  • jomar.delange - 2012-11-27 09:42

    Following in the proud footsteps of Kirk Cameron... Of course, you don't have to find God to see that this show is utter garbage.

      mbossenger - 2012-11-27 11:56

      Ah, how is Kirk and his buddy "banana man" Ray Comfort? I haven't heard from the comedy pair for some time..

      george.frangs - 2012-11-27 12:54

      They're hiding in a bunker prepairing for the rapture...

      mbossenger - 2012-11-27 13:54

      George - they don't have to hide; they are the saved ones and will be raptured; it's us heathens who are going to burn, baby!

      george.frangs - 2012-11-27 15:29

      Right... Does that mean we're all "Left Behind?" :P

  • LanfearM - 2012-11-27 09:57

    Yah right, but you love your $350 000 per episode, neh. Bloody hypocrite.

  • rene.nortje15 - 2012-11-27 10:17

    well if he doesnt want to be there why sign another year. if his character is a non entity or not important guess who is going to get fired next. Filth Please!!!!!! clearly your brain is affected by the people you listen too now or should i say brain washed!

  • gennath - 2012-11-27 10:38

    Yeah I had my religious revelation around that age too... don't worry, it's a phase.

  • ian.robertreid - 2012-11-27 10:41

    u made yr easy big money Jake~ move on boy?

      Bob.Cee123 - 2012-11-27 15:32

      Too right, and don't threaten the livelihood of those who make a living from the show whose very existence you threaten with your looney, cult-induced ranting. Why not go and see the executives, work out an amicable contract release and get yourself written out of the series as your character goes off and lives with his uncle and auntie in Belair or something, and if it means so much to you, Angus, you take the inevitable financial hit yourself instead of forcing your co-stars to share in the losses. Then, by all means, go and do what you like at your happy-clappy looney bin church. Hope they don't cut you loose too quickly once your money dries up, it's pretty crazy how quickly ol' Jesus & friends seem to burn through the benjamins.......

  • ben.louw.5 - 2012-11-27 10:54

    Another one for the loony bin.

  • lee.naidoo.10 - 2012-11-27 11:43

    What a w@nker!

  • RoyNexusSix - 2012-11-27 11:51

    He's been hit over the head with a bible now. Hilarious! Maybe he can now put his money where his money is ($350,000 per episode apparently) and donate all his $-dough to charity. What a hypocrite. It's a rubbish show without an ethical core - granted. I have never watched it for obvious reasons (i.e. not my 'cup of tea') but you DON'T need to be 'reborn' to know what those reasons are and recognise them.

  • Bob.Cee123 - 2012-11-27 12:14

    Another reason not to watch it. I like Ashton Kutcher in That 70s Show but he's just not Charlie Sheen. Poor old John Cryer and Conchata Ferrel etc must be going insane with these nutjob co-stars of theirs (first Charlie Sheen, now Angus Jones)threatening their livelihood. Jones is likely going to be like Kirk Cameron reportedly was when he first converted. All self-righteous and preachy with all of his co-stars and crew. His screen-Dad needs to take him out back and kick his ass for him.

  • wordis.word.1 - 2012-11-27 12:31

    "Jake ... is a nonexistent character" ORLY?

  • Bob.Cee123 - 2012-11-27 12:46

    Should this bring about a severe enough ratings drop for the show, resulting in cancellation of the show, the self-righteous little tyke needs to be fired and then sued by the studio/cast/crew for loss of potential earnings. Hopefully Chuck Lorre has a nice quiet word with him and convinces him to issue a retraction.

  • christopher.tarboton - 2012-11-27 15:56

    It was a great show with Sheen in it but it has now gone the way of typical Yank sitcoms - soppy and formulaic.

  • nomcebo.dlamini.90 - 2012-11-27 17:52

    Really! Who's forcing him to work there? Attention seeker!

  • robert.p.gemmell - 2012-12-30 13:24

    If the show was so much filth then why sign another 1 year contract. I guess that makes you part of the filth. I enjoy the programme and not with Aston Kutcher bring back Charlie Sheen he is far better and the programme is worse with out Charlie. At "Jack" money talks if you were so against the programme you would not of signed for another year.
