NEW YORK (AP) – The teenage actor who criticized “Two and a Half Men,” the CBS comedy he stars in, as “filth” will have some time before he faces the show’s producers.
Angus T. Jones wasn’t expected at rehearsal Tuesday because he is not going to be in the episode they are filming, according to a person close to the show who spoke on condition of anonymity because producers were not commenting publicly.
Jones wouldn’t be expected back at work until after the New Year, the person said. His character has been largely absent because he has joined the Army.
Jones has been on the show since he was 10 but says he doesn’t want to be on it anymore. He says, “Please stop watching it. Please stop filling your head with filth.” he says in a video that was posted by Forerunner Chronicles in Seale, Alabama. In it, Jones describes a search for a spiritual home.
CBS and producer Warner Bros. Television have not commented.
