Angus T. Jones may not have to worry about working for The Enemy (Satan) and starring on the “filthy” Two And A Half Men much longer — he’s likely going to be phased out of the series after the current season.
And though it’s unlikely the hit sitcom will change its title to Two Men And A Country Superstar, the show’s producers are reportedly considering swapping him out with Miley Cyrus, whose guest starring stint brought the show the highest ratings of the season.
Angus’ evangelical ranting has been much buzzed about this week, ever since he urged fans of the show to stop watching because of the unwholesome content. Angus will finish the show’s tenth season per his contract, but his Jake likely will only be a recurring character when the series returns next fall. (It's about time, anyway... Angus is a full man now, not just a half.)

To keep a youthful presence on the show, it’s a possibility that Miley will return as a series regular to play Missi, the daughter of a friend of Ashton Kutcher’s. “One possibility is that she could easily be written into the show to go to college,” a Two And A Half Men insider revealed, according to Celebuzz.
“When she was on set she was pleasant and very enjoyable to work with,” said the source. “She won everyone over. Now the whispers are growing louder. People involved in the show want Miley to replace Angus.”
Of course, this raises the question of how much sense it would make to have Missi on the show without Jake. Not to mention that Miley has already had her own successful show, Hannah Montana, and may not need to share the spotlight with Ashton and Jon Cryer if she wants to return to TV. (It's a better offer than a girl-on-girl porno, anyway.)
Then again, Angus was reportedly making over $8 million a year for his role, and Miley’s asking price would almost certainly be even higher.
