If the name Angus T. Jones doesn't ring a bell, you're probably not alone, despite the fact he's one of the highest paid actors in Hollywood after transforming from child to teen star over the last 10 years on Two and a Half Men. It doesn't seem likely he'll be making the jump into his 20s on that show though.
In an online video rant with a cult religious organization posted last Monday, Angus slammed the show that made his career by calling it "filth" and encouraging fans not to watch it. Although he seems to stand by his statements, he did issue an oh-f***-I-still-need-money apology statement. "I apologize if my remarks reflect me showing indifference to and disrespect of my colleagues and a lack of appreciation of the extraordinary opportunity of which I have been blessed. I never intended that," he wrote. "I am grateful to and have the highest regard and respect for all of the wonderful people on Two and Half Men with whom I have worked over the past ten years and who have become an extension of my family."
Seriously though, what the hell is in the water at the show?! Fellow hot mess Charlie Sheen weighed in on the controversy in a statement by claiming that, "With Angus's Hale-Bopp-like meltdown, it is radically clear to me that the show is cursed."
As of now, Angus is one of the highest paid actors in Hollywood by making $350,000 an episode and roughly $8 million each season. However, he has made it clear that he does not want to be on the show anymore and will likely not seek a contract renewal for Season 11. He is also not scheduled to appear in the next two episodes of the show being filmed, although it's not a result of his comments. His character, Jake, is in the Army and appears sporadically throughout the season.
Do you think Angus will come back for Season 11?
