Two and a Half Men star calls show 'filth', wants us to stop watching
 
Angus T. Jones, the "Half" from the show's title, slams the show in a video testimony that was recorded for the Forerunner Christian Church.

Part 1:


Part 2:


For those who don't want to watch, here's some of what he said:

Quote:

"Jake from 'Two and a Half Men' means nothing. He is a non-existent character," Jones says in a video for the Forerunner Christian Church, which is based in Fremont, Calif. "If you watch 'Two and a Half Men,' please stop watching 'Two and a Half Men.' I'm on 'Two and a Half Men' and I don't want to be on it. Please stop watching it and filling your head with filth. People say itís just entertainment. Do some research on the effects of television and your brain, and I promise you youíll have a decision to make when it comes to television, especially with what you watch."

Jones continues with the testimonial, intimating that the show is part of the plan of "the enemy" -- presumably Satan. He adds, "If I am doing any harm, I don't want to be here. I don't want to be contributing to the enemy's plan ... You cannot be a true God-fearing person and be on a television show like that. I know I can't. I'm not OK with what I'm learning, what the bible says and being on that television show."

I guess the only reason he's still on the show is because of his contractual obligation.

He inhaled after Sheen exhaled too often?

Possibly a huge hoax or prank.

Any sitcom with a laugh track is bad.

I wonder if this is why they sent Jake off into the Army last season. He's barely appeared this season. Apparently Jones has become more religious over the past year and this may have led the producers to lessen his role. I wouldn't be surprised if eventually he and the producers get together and get him out of his contract. If they really need a half man maybe they can reveal that Walden has a kid he knows nothing about and is dropped on his doorstep by someone.

Ain't that the truth.

Any show that needs to tell the viewers when to laugh, is - by definition - not funny enough.

This show itself may not be the work of the devil, but laugh tracks definitely are. :p

Somebody needs to produce a sitcom about all the behind the scenes antics on that show. I don't watch broadcast sitcoms, but I'd watch that.

He should give his $350,000 an episode to charity. What an ingrate. I like what someone said on Twitter about it: "Looks like Kirk Cameron has finally found someone to come to his birthday parties."

Well obvioulsy he doesn't feel strongly enough about it to break his contract.

He can't break his contract, but the producers can dump him rather easily. They did it with Sheen and they can do it again.:lol:

Anyone can break a contract, that isn't to say there wouldn't be a penalty for doing so, which of course they would be. After all in order to get rid of Sheen didn't CBS have to break thee 2 year contract they had with him despite only being one year into it?

Don't you think that opinion is a little closed-minded? I mean, by this logic, Seinfeld isn't funny. The Cosby Show isn't funny. Cheers isn't funny. Frasier isn't funny. The Big Bang Theory isn't funny. All In The Family, Mary Tyler Moore, The Jeffersons, Three's Company, Friends... none of them are funny. Need I go on?

"How I Met Your Mother" has a laugh track, and I think it's one of the funniest shows I've ever seen. An honestly, it would probably sound weird without one.

^I'm not a fan of laughter tracks myself, I don't mind it when its a studio audiance laughing, but otherwise can I decide what's funny or not please.

I'm trying to listen to the video. Gah these people talk slowly. GET TO THE POINT!!

After seeing Charlie Sheen live his life for so many years this kid is probably scared to death that he'll somehow follow suit.
I also think most religions, and a lot of agnostics and athiests would all agree that this show sucks. Not so much the message it sends, but just the simple fact that it sucks. So, ok Angus, I won't watch your show. No problem.
