Two and a Half Men co-star Angus T. Jones (Jake) Apoligizes For 'Filth' Comments in Video

By Susan Duclos

Two and a Half Men actor, Angus T. Jones who plays Jake, has apolized for his inflammatory comments made in series of interviews where he denounced his own show, said he didn't want to be in the show, and pleaded for viewers to stop watching.

ABC News highlights the relevant portions with clips from the Angus T. Jones 'Two and a Half Men' 'Filth' Video" below:

In his interview, Jones also said: “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. 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."

Late Tuesday, Jones apologized:

In a statement issued late Tuesday, Jones said he had the highest regard for all of the people he has worked with on the comedy, including creator Chuck Lorre and Warner Bros. studio chief Peter Roth.

"I apologize if my remarks reflect me showing indifference to and disrespect of my colleagues and a lack of appreciation of the extraordinary opportunity of which I have been blessed," said Jones, who reportedly makes $350,000 an episode. "I never intended that."

Jones wasn't at the studio lot for a rehearsal on Tuesday. He's not scheduled to appear on the two episodes that are being filmed before the end of the year, said a person close to the show who spoke on condition of anonymity because Warner Bros. and CBS haven't commented publicly on Jones. His character has recently joined the Army and his airtime has been cut down.

His real-life adventure came to light on Monday, when he said in a video posted by the Forerunner Chronicles in Seale, Ala., featured him talking about not wanting to be on "Two and a Half Men" anymore.

Actor Charlie Sheen, who broke with the show very publicly last year, couldn't resist his own dig at the show's creator Chuck Lorre.

After calling Two and a Half Men "cursed" in reaction to the viral Angus T. Jones video testimonial for religious group the Forerunners Chronicles, Charlie Sheen has launched another verbal grenade at an old enemy: show creator Chuck Lorre.

"Obviously, not having been there for some time, the Angus T. Jones that I knew and still love is not the same guy I saw on YouTube yesterday," Sheen is quoted as telling TMZ.

"I dare anyone to spend 10 years in the laugh-track that is Chuck Lorre's hive of oppression and not suffer some form of an emotional tsunami," he said of Jones.

 Sheen's new show Anger Management was picked up by FX for another 90 shows and returns in 2013.

The Phenomenal Charlie Sheen

Advice to Charlie sheen- Don't listen to no stinkin' advice.

Charlie Sheen has been in the news, it seems like forever, from his marriages to his divorces, from his movies to his number one sit-com show "Two and a Half Men" where he was the top paid actor in television.

The guy is a one man phenomenon and CBS and Warner Brothers truly should have just let him be as long as he was showing up for production days and the show stayed on top.

Face it, the character he played..... was himself, not only that, but the show wouldn't have had it's first season without him.

Ironically, Two and a Half Men exists because of Sheen. The project only made it to pilot because Sheen agreed to do it -- CBS boss Moonves had made the pilot order contingent on Sheen, so the comedy wouldn't have proceeded beyond a script without the actor.

Latest news is that Warner Bros. TV has officially fired Charlie Sheen from "Two and a Half Men" and Sheen is vowing to sue. Lawyers are all involved, letters have been sent and like a train wreck, the world is watching, unable to take their eyes off of the unfolding events.

Sheen took to Twitter and immediately broke all records by being followed by his first million twitter followers within 24 hours and now, as of this very moment, that number is up to 2,232,887.

TeamSheen is actively looking for a social media intern and even sets up a page for people to apply, found here.

Billionaire Mark Cuban, owner of Dallas Mavericks and owner HDNet TV channel has been brainstorming with Sheen about a project.

Every network has capitalized with stories, articles and exclusive interviews with Sheen himself, so who exactly is the winner and who is the loser here?

Sheen is outrageous, loud, in some cases deliberately obnoxious but the bottom line is he has become a phenomenon and everyone is cashing in, including Sheen himself.

Everybody except CBS and Warner Brothers TV that is.

Jeralyn, over at Talk Left wrote something that hits the nail on the head:

Sheen really can't do anything but win, because of the business story behind all this. The media -- from the Wall St. Journal on down -- will follow his eventual settlement with CBS. Then there's the story of his single-handedly and overnight breaking all records on Twitter, and eliminating the need for networks, agents and publicists by self-broadcasting on the internet. Sheen is more popular now than ever. Which means, he'll return to the airwaves earning even more money. As for the worst that will befall him, Blair writes "he'll be the next Hugh Hefner with his House of Goddesses."

Proof is in the pudding as they say and doing a few searches I see Charlie Sheen Teeshirts, bumper stickers, cups, etc...

Consider this.

I started writing this 30 minutes ago and he had 2,232,887 Twitter followers, 30 minutes later he now has 2,240,700 followers in the time it took to write this.

Like I said, Sheen is now a phenomenon.

The Phenomenal Charlie Sheen has a ring to it, doesn't it Charlie?
