After finding religion, the Seventh Day Adventist is now singing a different tune from the one he sung on YouTube, where he bashed the show that made him a star, and TV’s top paid child actor. “Two And A Half Men” will not be losing Angus T. Jones, but, some fear his meltdown and subsequent rants may have cost the young man a lot more than just a few fans. Perhaps his outrage and calling his own show, “filth” was too much for his entourage and family, who now have convinced the teenager to complete his contract and finish it out, which if he had left, could have cost him $15 million. Not on set this week, Jones’s absence was nothing more than a break he had planned to take. But sources at Warner Bros. and at CBS tell Highlight Hollywood…..
“Angus will be back to work, but his outburst has really shocked the cast and crew, and Chuck (Lorre) hasn’t been so unhappy since, well, since Charlie Sheen’s infamous meltdown,” said the CBS source.
Jones, who called the show “filth” and urged viewers in a video interview on a religious website to stop watching, issued an apology Tuesday night, saying he has the “highest regard” for the “wonderful people” on the show.
Although Jones is not featured in an episode that tapes next week, he intends to show up on schedule after the break, the source says.
With no surprise, this young star is reportedly very happy, positive and oblivious to the damage he’s done not only to his own reputation and career, but to those at “Two And A Half Men,” who work for much less than Ashton Kutcher, Jon Cryer, Angus T. Jones and Chuck Lorre. The men and women on set, who are union workers in Hollywood, just trying to make ends meet and pay their bills.
