Oh, I'm sure he'll be picked up by Christian filmmakers, and go on to "star" in some of the most poorly written, horribly acted piles of dreck since the 40 year old end times extravaganza "A Thief in the Night", or the beloved "Left Behind" movie series. After all, who needs the validation of Hollywood when you can make that sweet Pat Robertson money AND be a dick for Jesus?
I'm seriously doubting there is that much work in that
Well, yeah, I had the sarcasm dropping pretty heavily there.

Miley Cyrus is shocked...

A source told HollywoodLife.com: "Miley was shocked just like everyone else who saw the video. But Miley doesn't judge anyone and she of course wants Angus and everyone who works on the show to be happy and continue doing the show because she's a huge fan and she likes guest appearing. Read more...
Angus T. Jones appologizes...

It's a 19 year old kid, thinking he's smarter than every adult he knows and shooting off his mouth in an act of sophomoric rebellion. Most of us did something like this at one time or another and the only reason we care about him is because (a) he's famous and (b) he's uploaded the video.

Furthermore, if he had said the exact same thing but couched it as [for example] a feminist, as opposed to a religious, screed some of the same people attacking him would be praising him for his honesty and integrity.

How honest is it to collect money for doing something you consider "filth"? If he had any integrity he'd either keep his mouth shut or quit.

Well, I wonder if we'll see mentions of this in Chuck Lorre's upcoming vanity cards.

Nah. He could say "this show is the most sexist garbage I've ever seen. I'm ashamed to be a part of it. Don't watch it", but as long as he's collecting the checks, he's a sanctimonious, hypocritical twit.

Maybe it's a ploy to renegotiate his contract and change the title to "Three Men". If he's serious, he'll become the answer to a trivia question on a game show.

You cannot be a true God-fearing person and be on a television show like that

What about God taunting?

And anyway, it's written to taunt Chucks god, not August's god.

Wouldn't it be odd if the Jews and the Christians admitted that they worshipped the same bloke?.

Ditto for the Muslims.

Re: Two and a Half Men star calls show 'filth', wants us to stop watch

And now for the "I done fucked up" apology: CNN Linkage

"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," Jones said in a statement released by his publicist. "I never intended that."

....

"Without qualification, 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 and over the past ten years who have become an extension of my family."
Someone got a call from a show's producers I suspect. Way to stick to your guns there kiddie; as soon as it gets out your trash talking the bosses you start backpedaling.

He didn't take back the filth word.

Maybe he got told to leave that one hanging in meme land, to attract new viewers.

...or keep taking their money and use it for what he considers "good works," to offset the perceived negative influence of the show. Destroy from within and all that good Alinskyite stuff.

How'd he meet up with this couple? Are they getting any money? Uh-huh. Where's his family? With all the crap that went on behind the scenes of that show, his family didn't protect him?

If the kid wants to waste his life, it's his to waste. As long as he doesn't take anyone with him.

I like Sheen's hale-bopp refrence in his statement about the whole thing.


I wonder if he's just tired of doing the show, and rather than quit or break his contract, he is attempting to follow Sheen's lead and get fired/bought out.

Well.. at least Sheen's had a career before the show and his meltdown was fa rmore whacky and fun (i still laugh at the vatican assassin warlocks bit ).

The kid is a dumbass and hypocrite.. he insults the show (and by extension the entire crew and his co-actors) publicly and when the remaining brain cells start working again he realizes he gets paid $350.000 per episode for walking around and remembering a few lines of dialogue so he peddles back and apologizes

The way the show works currently it might not even need him.. he's become a recurring guest star and easily written out.. guess the money's too good to remain true to the statement he was so convinced of a few days ago.
