'Two and a Half Men' star Angus T. Jones, perhaps realizing that he had burned not only his meal ticket but everyone he is still contractually obligated to work with for the rest of this season, has issued a statement about the video where he called the show filth, a video which exploded across the internet yesterday.

The shock of 'Two and a Half Men' star Angus T. Jones' religious rant against the series likely won't die down for a good long while, but it seems Hollywood itself has already taken aim at skewering the young actor. Hilariously, Thursday ratings rival 'The Office' has taken one of the first jabs at Jones, enlisting stars Rainn Wilson and Craig Robinson to re-enact the bizarre video. Are you ready for 'The Office' to get filthy?
Early yesterday morning, 'Two and a Half Men' and child actor Angus T. Jones fans alike were shocked to hear that the one-time chubby-cheeked actor had publicly renounced his affiliation with the long-running CBS sitcom, urging viewers to stop watching as a "testimony" to his new-found association with religious movement "Forerunner Chronicles." While the studio bigwigs and Jones' cast-mates have yet to issue any kind of public response, production is set to resume on the CBS series today. Will Jones even show up for his contracted gig, or continue burning the bridge?
While we make no personal habit of watching CBS' decade-long powerhouse 'Two and a Half Men,' there's no denying the absurd amount of popularity the former Charlie Sheen-fronted series has achieved in its day. That popularity hasn't always come easily, as recent years saw controversy with series star Charlie Sheen and creator Chuck Lorre explode into the media, but now it seems an all-new development with series star Angus T. Jones has stoked the fires all over again. Could Jones' new-found proclamation of religion put an end to 'Two and a Half Men?'
In news that will surely delight its millions of regular viewers and send chills down the spines of people who like good things, 'Two and Half Men' has been renewed for a tenth season.
