One would have thought that Angus T. Jones might have learned a little something from his former "Two and a Half Men" co-star Charlie Sheen about biting the hand that feeds him $350,000 an episode. But apparently not.
The 19-year-old actor, who has played Jake in the popular sitcom since he was 10-years-old, made his plea via a video for Forerunner Chronicles, a Christian movement linked with the Voice of Prophecy Seventh Day Adventist church in Los Angeles where Jones worships.
"If you watch 'Two and a Half Men,' please stop watching 'Two and a Half Men.' 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."Jones continued: "People say it's just entertainment. Do some research on the effects of television and your brain, and I promise you you’ll have a decision to make when it comes to television, especially with what you watch."
The video was filmed in a number of locations, including inside Jones's "Two and a Half Men" trailer on the Warner Bros. studio lot. The video also discusses "the enemy" (presumably Satan), with Jones saying "I don't want to be contributing to the enemy's plan."
Warner Bros. TV, who produce the show, has no comment so far.
In March 2011, "Two and a Half Men" suffered it's first controversy after leading actor Charlie Sheen suffered a public meltdown, and verbally attacked the show's creator, Chuck Lorre, via social media and frenetic videos on YouTube.
Ashton Kutcher was brought in to replace Charlie Sheen, co-starring alongside Jon Cryer who plays Jake's father Alan in the series.
