Angus T. Jones made no secret of his disdain for Two and a Half Men when he left the hit TV series, but it turns out that wasn't just because of the show's increasingly lame scripts.
It was revealed in 2012 that the actor, who worked on the show for almost 10 years, was making like Charlie Sheen and having a good old rant about Two and a Half Men in his church. Unfortunately, the young star did not seem to see the raging hypocrisy of condemning the show while actively appearing in it. Back then the star warned viewers:
"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…. If I am doing any harm, I don’t want to be here. I don’t want to be contributing to the (Satan’s) plan."
Now, at the ripe old age of 20, Jones has dragged himself out of the abhorrent nest of unholiness that was Two and a Half Men and he is confronting his previous duplicity... And growing an absolutely sinful beard.
The former star, who is now a student at the University of Colorado in Boulder, talked to Houston TV station KHOU over the weekend and explained his new calling after apologizing for his previous conduct. He recognized that he was:
"A paid hypocrite because I wasn't OK with it (working on Two and a Half Men) and I was still doing it."
He also took advice from his 'WWJD' wrist band and apologized for the hurtful things he had said about Two and a Half Men by explaining that;
"You know, that's (Two and a Half Men) his (Chuck Lorre) baby and I just, you know, totally insulted his baby and to that degree I apologize."
He isn't that apologetic, though! The Bible beating actor also told audiences:
"But otherwise I'm not (sorry), I don't regret saying what I said."
Although the former child star has basically taken an industrial leaf blower and blasted his fan base into the distance, those who are eager to see that beard in action can cling onto a glimmer of hope.
Angus T. Jones might be retiring from Satan's moving picture box (otherwise known as television), but he would go back to acting for some more pious productions. He went on to say that he would consider returning to the spotlight for
"A few different productions that do kind of Bible based stories and stuff like that."
Oh, how I hope that's true! Do you guys remember having to sit through those Bible story travesties in high school? That stuff was always from around 1986 and featuring the most wooden acting outside of The Simple Life. Maybe Jones can make religious education just a tad more bearable with his acting talent. Let's face it, we would all love to see that beard hovering above some magnificent Moses robes.
So, what do you guys think of the latest installation of the Angus T. Jones transformation? Pious holy man, or full-blown Kirk Cameron?
