Angus T. Jones, the teenager who has played Jake on ‘Two and a Half Men’ for the past ten seasons, recorded a religion-inspired testimony that trashes the popular CBS sitcom.
The actor recorded a two-part video chronicling his childhood, the television series and the fact that his life started to deteriorate during his junior and senior year in high school when he smoked weed and did acid.
He gravitated to religion in January 2012 and church shopped until he felt the fit was right with the 7th Day Adventists, a protestant Christian denomination that observes Saturday as the Sabbath.
The teen actor was conflicted about signing on for another season of ‘Men’ but finally caved and began filming new episodes that have him arriving home from Army basic training, with a girlfriend thrown into his character’s new storyline, played by Miley Cyrus.
Jones recently contacted a controversial SDA man who is known on YouTube as TheForerunner777. Angus was hoping to talk to the guy on the phone and ask a few questions but their initial contact turned into a 30 minute video “testimony” that will likely be the end of his long running career on ‘Men’ that began in 2003 and earns him $350,000 per episode.
He said, “I’m on Two and a Half Men and I don’t want to be on it. Please stop watching it. Please stop filling your heads with filth.”
“People say it’s just entertainment. Do some research on the effects of television on your brain and I promise you, you’ll have a decision to make when it comes to what you watch on television. It’s bad news.”
“There’s no playing around when it comes to eternity. You cannot be a true God-fearing person and be on a television show like that. I know I can’t.”
He would like to be rid of his celebrity status and become a “soul-ebrity.”
