With the ‘half’ of Two and a Half Men off the cast of the CBS sitcom, there’s room for a new character when the show returns this fall without Angus T. Jones as a series regular. That new role will be Charlie Harper’s long-lost daughter. Deadline first reported the news. READ FULL STORY

As expected, CBS’ Two and a Half Men will return next season.
Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer have both signed on for another round, with Kutcher getting a reported $700,000-per-episode payout. But don’t expect Angus T. Jones to be back full time. Studio Warner Bros. is talking to the actor about a possible recurring role on the show instead of coming back as a series regular.
Cue the usual quips about whether the show’s title should be changed.
Jones infamously bashed his show earlier this season on a YouTube video, prompting speculation that he might be headed for the door. But CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler told reporters in January that the network and the actor had mended fences. “The kid’s 19 years old,” Tassler said at the time.”I’ve got a 24 year old. Between the ages of 19 and 24 there’s been plenty of things my kid has come out and said that I wish he hadn’t but the bottom line is cooler heads prevailed. [Jones has] been a beloved member of that cast for years and years and he issued a public apology. At the end of the day, they want him back and he wants to come back and that’s it.”
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.
Who better to spoof Angus T. Jones’ stunning YouTube video than fellow sitcom star Rainn Wilson?
Yesterday Jones made headlines by bashing his own show, Two and a Half Men, as part of online religious testimonial. Below, Wilson offers his own spin on the viral hit. “Dwight from The Office is nothing, okay?” says Wilson, while sitting besides co-star Craig Robinson. “The Office is nothing, all right? If you watch The Office, please don’t watch The Office. I’m on The Office. It’s filth. And that filth will rot your brain.”
That Wilson’s The Office is part of NBC’s Thursday comedy block — a lineup that’s getting stomped in the ratings by CBS’ Men and Big Bang Theory on the same night — makes this shot even more interesting. (The shows are not in the exact same time period, mind you, but their networks’ comedy blocks overlap).
It would be even better if Wilson would have made this totally straight-faced and earnest, just like Jones, but we’ll take it. Check out the video below: READ FULL STORY
Is Angus T. Jones the new Charlie Sheen?
The 19-year-old actor isn’t spewing nonsense about tiger blood and winning. But Jones is biting the hand that feeds him in a very public way by urging Two and a Half Men viewers to stop watching the CBS comedy hit that he’s appeared on for ten years — and calling the program “filth.”
A video in which Jones laments his involvement in the sitcom appeared on YouTube today. The clip is the second part of a religious testimony Jones gave to Chris “The Forerunner” Hudson, a conspiracy theorist who believes President Obama’s reelection is a sign that the End of Days is near. After describing his religious awakening, Jones takes aim at the series that made him famous.
