'Two and a Half Men' star: TV is 'filth'

NEED TO KNOW
  • Angus T. Jones blasts his show, asks viewers to stop watching
  • Two YouTube videos chronicle his religious journey

He was 10 when "Two and a Half Men" premiered on CBS in 2003. We've watched Angus T. Jones grow up before our eyes on the show playing Jake, the "half" part of the title roles.

Now 19, he says he's had a "change of lifestyle" and is speaking out against television and specifically the show that made him famous.

Sitting alongside a YouTube preacher who calls himself "The Forerunner," Jones talks about finding his faith and a church that fit his "change of lifestyle." He says he's "learning the truth" through bible study in the Seventh Day Adventist Church and by watching The Forerunner's videos.  

"You cannot be a true God-fearing person and be on a show like that," Jones says of "Two and a Half Men." "I know I can't. I'm not OK with what I'm learning what the bible says and being on that television show."

"I'm on 'Two and a Half Men,' I don't want to be on it. Please stop watching it. Please stop filling your head with filth. Please," says Jones.



The Forerunner (who mentions at the beginning of the first video that parts of Jones "testimony" were shot in his studio trailer on the Warner Brothers lot) is a prolific YouTuber whose video sermons deal with topics like the Freemasons, the Illuminati, and his theories about the Catholic Church's involvement in the re-election of President Obama. The background image on his YouTube page features a blimp with "New World Order" written on the side.

If you are a fan of "Two and a Half Men," you're probably familiar with show creator and executive producer Chuck Lorre's "vanity cards" that pop up at the end of the closing credits every week. Among other things, Lorre frequently uses these blink-and-you'll-miss-them messages to vent about anything, from struggles with network censors to inside jokes, the epic meltdown of his former star Charlie Sheen, and more -- prompting some on Twitter to wonder if Lorre will respond to this latest strange castmember outburst there:

We'll be watching.  For now, a representative for "Two and a Half Men" tells HLN they have "no comment" on Jones' remarks.
