'Two and a Half Men'

Kid Scores

MASSIVE Contract

10/8/2010 10:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

While most 16-year-olds are scrounging around for minimum wage jobs ... the kid from "Two and a Half Men" just locked up a brand new contract worth $300,000 per episode ... TMZ has learned.

1007_money_angus_tmz
Angus T. Jones -- who plays Charlie Sheen's nephew Jake Harper on the show -- signed a minumum 26 episode deal on May 12, 2010 ... which means dude will make $7.8 mil over the next two seasons ... plus a $500,000 signing bonus. 

That's just the minumium he's guaranteed. The reality is ... CBS has guaranteed 48 episodes over the next two seasons, which means Angus would pocket $14.4 mil total, plus that $500,000 signing bonus.

Right around the time Jones inked his deal ... Charlie Sheen signed a contract worth $2 mil an episode ... which translates to $52 mil over the next two seasons.

With bonuses and whatnot, Charlie will pull in more than $98 million.

Because Jones is a minor, his contract had to be approved by an L.A. County Superior Court judge ... who makes less in a year than Jones makes in a week.

By the way -- today is ATJ's 17th birthday ... he should probably go buy himself something nice.

As sick as this makes me thinking about how much this kid is making -- if Charlie is making THAT much money, Angus deserves more! The show would not even be 1/2 as good without him on it -- I think he even adds more than Alan does to the show!

And I think he needs to go out and buy ME something nice, whaddya say, Kid?? :)

Let's chop out the kid, call it "Two Men", and really get to the nitty gritty of Charlie bedding women again, deciding he needs to go to sex rehab, and then showing how much of a fraud those rehab places are anyway.

Angus is a great actor, well considering his material basically being lines rotated weekly. His timing is what is so awesome IMO. Funny kid.

I hope he stays grounded though. I'd hate to witness the downward spiral of another child star!

he's so worth it. he's basically grown up on the set of Two and A Half Men. he could've easily quit as he got into his teens or w/e and the show wouldn't have been the same.

but so if Angus makes 300k, Charlie 2kk, what does Jon Cryer make?

That's flippin nuts. He's not even in the show all that much, but I guess that's the perks of being on a general broadcast station.

Kid makes more in a week than most of us do in three years...
