'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.

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.

Last night's 2 1/2 Men was a complete depiction of Charlie's life. The kids were the public entertained by his antics. The mother was those people in his life who saw nothing wrong with it because they were doing questionable stuff too. The maid was the people who get paid to look away. His bother was the person who cared who went to each of them for help and was turned away. Charlie eventually got badly hurt and his brother thought he had learned a lesson - but no. More important: Read Chuck Lorre's Vanity Card #315 at the end of the show or on his website. He's pissed! Very pissed! Interesting you remark on the new contracts today.
