It’s been about two years since Charlie Sheen started the public meltdown that led to his departure from CBS’s huge hit sitcom, Two and a Half Men. Now, another of the show’s stars is making statements that could expedite his removal from the cast.
This time, it’s Angus T. Jones, who plays Jake Harper (better known as “the kid” — though he’s not such a kid anymore) on the show. In a recent interview with ForerunnerChronicles.com (a super-sketchy site that currently features an article about Satan’s human agents making preparations for the end of the world on its front page), Jones calls Two and a Half Men “filth” and pretty much begs all of the show’s viewers to stop watching.
“I’m on Two and a Half Men and I don’t want to be on it,” Jones tells his interviewer.
“Please stop watching it,” he implores the show’s audience.
Whoa. Has Jones finally clued in to the fact the TAAHM is horrible, its raunchy jokes are aimed at the dumbest segment of America and its canned laughter is insulting to the contemporary comedy audience?
Nope, it’s just a bunch of God stuff:
Jones actually sounds like he could be going off the deep end here, telling us all to do some research about how television affects our brains. Um, no offense, Angus, but I think I’ll defer to the research performed by the real scientists on this one.
Sure, most Americans would benefit from reading more books. There’s a big difference between believing that and believing that moving pictures on a screen somehow rot your brain, though. It’s an even bigger leap to suggest that Jesus Christ himself would somehow be upset with us for watching television.
“You cannot be a true God-fearing person and be on a television show like that. I know I can’t.”
Okay, Angus. So, is it safe to say you’re going to tender your resignation and stop collecting (huge) paychecks from CBS? Until you do, your words are pretty empty.
