Star of ‘Two and a Half Men’ Urges Fans to Stop Watching, Calls Show ‘Filth’

Move over Charlie Sheen, another “Two and a Half Men” controversy is exploding.

Angus T. Jones, who has played the role of Jake Harper, “the half” on the hit CBS show since 2003, is featured in a new video for the Forerunner Christian Church, in which he calls the sitcom “filth” that contradicts his devout Christian values.

That’s not all. The 19-year-old actor, who reportedly earns $350,000 an episode, even urges fans to stop watching.

“I’m on ‘Two and a Half Men’ and I don’t want to be on it,” he said. “If you watch ‘Two and a Half Men,’ please stop watching it and filling your head with filth. People say it’s just entertainment. Do some research on the effects of television and your brain, and I promise you you’ll have a decision to make when it comes to television, especially with what you watch.”

Jones goes on to express guilt that his profession may be inflicting serious damage on its audience.

“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,” he continued. “I’m not OK with what I’m learning, what the Bible says and being on that television show.”

Forerunner Chronicles, the Alabama-based Church, which conducted the interview, was not immediately available for further comment.

      Sorry Matthew which by the way is a Biblical name Jesus makes everything better it is man who ruins everything.

    Wow. Although I will confess that I do watch the show sometimes, I am impressed at Jones, not only for being honest enough to say this, but at his acting ability to be so convincing in the role of Jake Harper. It is hard enough to be convincing in a role that you do like. But to do so in a role that you don’t agree with. I wonder how long his contract is and what will happen when it is up. I hope that he will have acting opportunities and not be so typecast as the role of Jake Harper, like Max Baer Jr who played the roll of Jethro on the Beverly Hillbillies for years that he was never able to work again in the business.

    A brave young man not afraid to put his life in the hands of Christ. Way to go Brother.
