Two and a Half Men's Jake says don't watch my show - it's 'filth'
Teenage actor who played Charlie Sheen's nephew tells viewers to turn off US comedy after finding God
ANGUS JONES, the teenage actor who played Charlie Sheen's nephew in the hit television comedy Two and a Half Men, has denounced the show as "filth" and urged viewers not to watch it.
Jones, 19, who still plays Jake Harper in the CBS comedy and reportedly earns $350,000 per episode, has released two videos (below) warning people not to watch it for fear of becoming "contaminated", says The Guardian. His startling declaration follows his apparent conversion to Christianity via a California-based group called the Forerunner Chronicles that warns about evil in entertainment.
"Jake from Two and a Half Men means nothing," says Jones in the videos posted on YouTube which are described as Testimonies. "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 filling your head with filth."
Jones's videos are the latest, bizarre twist in the story of Two and a Half Men which has already survived the departure of its original star, Charlie Sheen. He was sacked in March 2011 after his appetite for drug-fuelled partying sent him into rehab.
Jones's mother, Carey Jones, 42, is concerned her son is being "exploited" by the church, the The Daily Mail reports. The newspaper quotes a senior source at CBS saying they are baffled by the videos and "we are just trying to figure it out".
Jones has starred in the comedy since he was 10. In the videos he says he found religion when his parents were divorcing and he admits he tried drugs.
Since Sheen was replaced by Ashton Kutcher, Jones's character has been involved in more adult storylines, including a flirtation with another famous child star, Miley Cyrus.
"I don't want to be contributing to the enemy's plan," says Jones in his video. "You cannot be a true God-fearing person and be on a television show like that. I know I can't."
