NEW YORK — The teenage actor who plays the half in the hit CBS comedy “Two and a Half Men” says in a video posted online by a Christian church that the show is “filth” and that viewers shouldn’t watch it.
Nineteen-year-old Angus T. Jones has been on the show but says he doesn’t want to be on it anymore.
“Please stop watching it,” Jones said. “Please stop filling your head with filth.”
In the video posted by the Forerunner Christian Church in Fremont, Calif., Jones describes a search for a spiritual home. He says the type of entertainment he’s involved in adversely affects the brain and “there’s no playing around when it comes to eternity.”
“You cannot be a true God-fearing person and be on a television show like that,” he said. “I know I can’t. I’m not OK with what I’m learning, what the Bible says, and being on that television show.”
CBS and producer Warner Bros. Television had no comment Monday.
The actors on “Two and a Half Men,” the third most popular comedy on television, have contracts that run through the end of this season.
