Two and a Half Men co-star Angus T. Jones somehow has decided to walked away from a per episode pay check of $350,000
November 29, 2012- Television’s Two and a Half Men co-star Angus T. Jones somehow has decided to walked away from a per episode pay check of $350,000. Earlier in the week, the young star recorded a video for a Christian Church in which he called the most popular comedy in America “filth” and urged all viewers to not watch it any longer.
Afterwards in a prepared statement, he half apologized for his remarks however, there seemed to be a lack of any contrition. Some insiders had speculated if the show could have continued with the actor still on the cast. However, it seems that the show’s production bosses and the actor have made their decision. Someone close to the situation confirmed that Jones would complete filming of the current season and it is almost certain would not return for another season if CBS orders another year of the show.
Chuck Lorre, the show’s creator is planning on phasing out the character played by Jones from the show’s plotline and will tie in very well with the current status of the star on the show. At the end of last season, Jones’ character signed up for the army.
A source said Jones would not appear in every one of the episodes and it was up to Lorre to decide how much he will be used. Jones, Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer all are signed through season end, though all three probably would have been re-signed for next season once the show was picked up by CBS for another season.
If Jones leaves, it would be a sad ending to his character since he has been on since the days of Charlie Sheen. Sheen reacted to Jones’ controversy earlier in the week by saying the employer of the show was cursed.
