‘Two and a Half Men’ Star Slams Show, Tells Viewers Not to Watch [Video]

Charlie Sheen was the first star to bash Two and a Half Men but he’s not the last.

Angus T. Jones, who was once the highest-paid child star on television, has denounced the CBS show even though he’s still a cast member. The teen actor, who has been on the show since he was 10, called the show ‘filth’ and said he doesn’t want to be on it anymore.

“If you watch ‘Two and a Half Men,’ please stop watching ‘Two and a Half Men,” Jones said in a video posted by the Forerunner Chronicles, a Christian web site. “I’m on ‘Two and a Half Men’ and I don’t want to be on it. Please stop watching it. Please stop filling your head with filth.”

CBS declined to comment on Jones’s remarks. Warner Bros. TV, which produces the show, also had no comment. But its safe to say that Jones’ role looks a little bleak.

Jones plays Jake, the son of Jon Cryer’s uptight divorced chiropractor character, Alan, and the nephew of Charlie Sheen’s hedonistic philandering music jingle writer character, Charlie. Sheen, who has publicly criticized CBS, was fired and replaced by Ashton Kutcher, who plays billionaire Walden.

Jones, 19, allegedly makes $350,000 per episode. His contract, along with the other actors on the show, goes through the end of the current season. It is the third most popular comedy on television behind CBS’s The Big Bang  Theory and ABC’s Modern Family.

Watch Jones’ remarks below (begins around 7:30 mark).
