'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.

That show is such crap. It's honestly a matter of ALL current sitcoms are absolute crap and this is just the best of the crap. It's truly sad that mindless nonstop banter on this type of show is what is popular now. I couldn't even finish an entire episode. It's just ridiculous lame humor with constant canned laughter every 4.9 seconds.
Hopefully Hollywood gets a rebirth soon.

Why the spend so much money on that show I'll never know.

good for him, but I wish they would invest in newer shows instead of blow huge chunks on a few.

He and Jon Cryer have made the show uniquely hilarious from the beginning...it is about time they got credit for their enormous contributions to this classic comedy.

Congratulations Angus - you're great. Now how about the housekeeper - she keeps Charlie on his toes. Give the woman a raise too.

Just brilliant... the kid is awesome without any doubt. If you watch the show you too say the same. He is major factor for the show being so hit. Whatever kid is getting he deserve that and even get more than that. I liked that kid.

I can't stand the character Jake. He has always been stupid and annoying.

Good for him-I do think he is good on the show!

But, I think it is so sad that this kid makes more than teachers, nurses, etc. who really make a difference in peoples lives. This is why the world is falling apart-our priorities are all jacked up.

Hope Mom and Dad can tie it up for a long time. I'd have nightmares about my son having that much money at 18. All boys care about at that age is fast cars and girls. I assume he's worth that much - let's just hope he has a good manager. I've never watched the show - Charlie Sheen gives me the creeps.

Happy Birthday, Angus. You are a great actor, good comedic timing. You seem like you have a good head on your shoulders, stay humble and no driving fast.
