Angus T. Jones one of the co-stars on the hit television show Two and a Half Men has decided the $350,000 he receives per episode is not worth it. Earlier during the week, Jones released a video for a church and said in the video that the most popular situation comedy in the U.S. was just filth and he urged viewers throughout the U.S. not to watch the show.
In a statement released afterwards, he tried to apologize for his comments but it was obvious very little contrition was involved in his apology. Some sources believe the show could not have continued with Jones still on the cast.
Nevertheless, that might not be an issue, as it seems both the actor and his bosses have come to an agreement. It has been confirmed by an inside source that Jones will complete whatever filming is left for the show’s current season and will not return for any additional seasons, if in fact CBS renews the show for another year.
The creator of the show, Chuck Lorre, had planned to little by little phase out Jones’ character from the plotline of the show. This will tie in with Jones’ character at this time since at the end of last season, he just signed up to join the army.
The same source said Jones would not be appearing in every show this season and the Lorre would decide the extent Jones would appear in different episodes.
The three main actors – Jon Cryer, Ashton Kutcher and Jones all have contracts through the current season and would most likely be signed for another season if CBS picks up the show. However, now it looks as though Jones will not be re-signed to another contract.
Charlie Sheen reacted to what happened by saying, the owner of the show was cursed and that Jones was welcome to join the cast of his new show Anger Management if he wanted to.
