Charlie Sheen has weighed in on the Angus T. Jones controversy.
Speaking to People magazine, the Two and a Half Men veteran had something to say about his younger former co-star calling the CBS hit sitcom “filth” and urging viewers not to watch.
“With Angus’s Hale-Bopp-like meltdown, it is radically clear to me that the show is cursed,” says Sheen, who now stars on FX’s Anger Management after having been fired from Men for his own meltdown last year.
Sheen’s comment was almost disappointingly brief, especially compared to his epic rants last year. Though you have to like his Hale-Bopp reference (the Heaven’s Gate cult attached religious significance to Hale-Bopp comet and committed ritualistic suicide in 1997). Also: We couldn’t help but half-jokingly wonder if Jones’ religious fervor was despite spending years working with hedonistic Sheen or somehow because of it — it must have had some kind of impact to grow up working alongside such a dramatic personality. Of course, Sheen would probably say the show itself is to blame/credit for Jones’ religious intensity.
