'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.

Good for him, now he needs to really scoreboard every guy his age and ask Victoria Justice out.

Seriously, if he's smart he'll be 20, rich and never has to work again.

Instead of going out and buying "something nice," he should start saving his money and learn to spend responsibly so he doesn't end up broke like Gary Coleman.

That show would have been canceled years ago if it wasn't for Angus.

The best was when Charlie was dropping him off at grade school. Jake asked him if he would come to his school play that morning. After he agreed to, Jake threw in "Oh, and I'll need a Benjamin Franklin costume." That was so my son!!!!

Kid is making tons of money which I respect and wish I was making his kind of money. For the past years, he has also been making a lot of trips to St. Judes to visit with the kids that have cancer. I think it is great that a teen is so involved in these trips. I know that his visits have meant a lot to the patients and it is nice to know that a teen star is not so self-involved so that he tries to do something for others.

I honestly hope he doesn't follow the same path as most of the kid stars in Hollyweird. Filthy rich before he's 21 and broke and losing his house before hes 40 with no skills ....
