    You know who makes $350,000 for a week’s worth of work that gets condensed into a 22-minute show? Angus T. Jones. He’s the guy who plays Jake on CBS’s “Two and a Half Men.” 
    Recently, he had a religious epiphany and decided to renounce the television show that has made him rich and famous since he started working on it almost ten years ago. He says of working on the show, “I'm on 'Two and a Half Men,' and I don't want to be on it.” Going beyond saying he doesn’t want to be a part of the show, he implores people to “stop watching it. Please stop filling your head with filth. Please.” 

     He says all this in a video released by Forerunner Christian Church to YouTube, remarking that television in general, not just his own show, “is bad news”. He refers to the medium as “deceptive” calling it “the enemy”. He does all this in the context of an interview about his new found faith, but the kid seems to legitimately want to remove himself from the industry all together. And if he didn't intend to do it before, he’s probably a short-timer in the wake of this video. You know, until he claims to have been brainwashed and goes to rehab.He says all this in a video released by Forerunner Christian Church to YouTube, remarking that television in general, not just his own show, “is bad news.” He refers to the medium as “deceptive” calling it “the enemy.” He does all this in the context of an interview about his new found faith, but the kid seems to legitimately want to remove himself from the industry all together.
