Charlie Sheen: Two and Half Men is cursed

2012-11-28 09:36
Los Angeles - Charlie Sheen said on Tuesday that hit TV series Two and a Half Men, on which he starred for years, is "cursed", after the young star of the show Angus T. Jones called the show "filth".

Sheen, who was sacked from the comedy show last year following his own public meltdown, was speaking as the show's producers remained tight-lipped about how they will deal with the outburst by actor Jones.

"With Angus's Hale-Bopp-like meltdown, it is radically clear to me that the show is cursed," Sheen told People magazine.

Nineteen-year-old Jones, who reportedly earns $350 000 an episode playing the character Jake in the show now starring Ashton Kutcher, attacked the program after apparently undergoing a religious revelation.

"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 said in a video posted by the Forerunner Christian Church on YouTube.

No comment

"Please stop watching it; stop filling your head with filth. Please," he said in the video.

Jones signed up for a new one-year contract in May for the show, from which Sheen was sacked after he gave a series of increasingly erratic and explosive interviews about the show's producer, Chuck Lorre.

Sheen, who portrayed hedonistic jingle writer Charlie Harper, was replaced by Kutcher on the top-rated comedy series, which has been a hit since it was launched in 2003.

The show's makers have so far declined to comment publicly on the young actor's outburst.

Paul McGuire, a spokesman for Warner Bros, which produces the show along with CBS, said on Monday: "We are not commenting on the comments made by Angus T. Jones."

    i reckon this show is funnier with kutcher than it was with charlie. maybe has a bit more heart and feels younger. too bad mnet is giving us an old season that us downloaders have already watched.

      The strength of the sitcom was in the way Sheen played it. The humor may miss some? The fact that Jon Cryer is now leading the viewer's liking just tells you how a big hole Sheen left. At least Jon is still giving some good entertainment to it.

      Now he is sober(thanks to his brother) and still good, but you are stuck with what you have. An ugly personality to say what have you said. That is that American sitcom viewer's attitude that I hate. We enjoy you while we can, without helping you and when the tide turns we spit you out because then they feel clean and get satisfaction by running some-one down. As if they never had problems before.

    I have the exact opposite opinion of yours. Kutcher needs to act liek a man now, not like the kid he was in that 70's show. It gets a bit old.

  • elizabeth.bothma.58 - 2012-11-28 11:26

    The show isn't cursed - it's just stupid and unfunny.
