'Two and a Half Men' star calls his own show 'Filth'
Los Angeles, Nov 27,2012 (PTI): 19:06 IST
'Two and a Half Men' is witnessing more off-screen drama than on-screen.
After lead star Charlie Sheen's dramatic removal two years ago following a public meltdown and Ashton Kutcher's entry, Angus T Jones, the youngest star on the sitcom, has blasted his own show as "filth" and begged fans to stop watching it.
Jones, who plays Jake Harper, the younger brother of Jon Cryer's character Alan Harper, said he no longer wants to be on the show, the Hollywood Reporter said.
"Jake from Two and a Half Men means nothing. He is a non-existent character. 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," Jones said in a video for the Forerunner Chronicles, a Christian group.
Jones continues with the testimonial, intimating that the show is part of the plan of "the enemy" -- presumably Satan.
"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."
Jones gave a testimony in October at the Voice of Prophecy in Los Angeles, where he attends services.
The 19-year-old actor, who grew up on the sets of the show, earns about USD 350,000 per episode. In May he received a salary hike with co-stars Cryer and Kutcher when the show was renewed for a 10th season.
'Two and a Half Men' producer Warner Bros Television declined comment on the latest controversy surrounding the show.
