Angus T. Jones

$3,000 Playdate

with Miley Cyrus

10/10/2010 9:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

He usually makes $300,000 per episode to appear on TV ... but "Two and Half Men" star Angus T. Jones took a big, fat pay cut to share some screen time with Miley Cyrus a few months ago.

1008_angus_jones_EX_Getty_01
Jones -- who just turned 17-years-old -- guest starred on "Hannah Montana" back in July ... and because he was a minor when he signed his contract, the docs had to be filed with the L.A. County Superior Court.

According to the paperwork, obtained by TMZ, Jones raked in a cool $2,808 -- plus he got his own dressing room -- to play an "obnoxious new kid" named T.J. on the show ...  a one week working commitment.

It's chump change compared to the ridiculous scrilla he makes on "Men" ... but there are plenty of people who would gladly PAY tons money to get that close to Miley for a day.

TMZ- You have a lot of illiterate and stupid readers. Angus is a really nice kid, that is not doing drugs, or doing anything stupid, yet your viewers tear him down because none of them make 20k per year. Sad pathetic losers. Go Angus.

I was wondering what he got paid for that. I'm glad he didn't get more than Miley. Her Disney pay really sucks compared to what she was worth to them. Miley probably wouldn't have quit Hannah if she would have got her fair share. Angus probably did it for exposure to a different audience, but you are right that most people would pay more than that just to be near beautiful Miley. I know some of these stars wanted to be on Hannah because they were fans of Miley and the show.

Hope he is investing his money wisely because you'll never see him get any more roles after 2 1/2 ends. Otherwise he'll be the next Gary Coleman or Brian Bonsall.

Lot's of bitter people post here. While Angus is making some serious dime on Two and a Half, some posters here are typing away on their Dell, bitching and moaning that he'll never work again when the show wraps. That's the difference. One who has his whole future financially prepared and another who would rather post negative opinions and is probably wondering where the next car payment is coming from. Congrats to Mr Jones on his career choices and good luck to the multitude of those who would rather post to some dog and pony website and offer up no more than a post and run.

Hey if Charlie Sheen makes a ton of money and he sucks than this kid deserves a good amount of money since he is the only funny thing about the show. I also think they need to give a raise to the mother and the nanny too.

Its always about the looks with some of you neanderthals. The show has been on for years because people watch it . It generates millions of dollars every week for the network. yea the kid maynot have the looks but he has talent to keep up with the rest of the adults on the show . If he doesnt do a thing after the show ends dont think hes going to have to worry about being homeless and there are plenty of support actors in film and tv who do just fine without the looks this is not coming from a fan i dont even watch the show. Hopefully he wont waste any of his millions on plastic surgery unless he does it for his own self gratification not because of what he may have heard or read about his looks. your fine angus just the way you are!!!!!

Can't anybody just be happy for Angus's success? Congratulations, Dude! Please, don't end up like most of the child stars did - drugs or dead. I wish you the best of luck!

I don't see why they think he's such a big part of that horribly written show. It was cute when he was a kid, it's just awkward now that puberty beat the **** out of him. What used to come off as childhood innocence on the show now just comes off as stupidity.

" Why does Kim KardASSian act like such a filthy Mexican?"

It appears you haven't learned a single thing since our little exchange a couple of months back, there you are still being a bigot. You haven't changed a bit! I'm very disappointed in you. Are Anti-Mexican comments the only comments you leave on TMZ? And what the hell does Kim Kardashian have to do with this story? Enough with your random ass Mexican bashing. Don't you have anything better to do? Or maybe you wanted my attention...

Oh yeah, and I wonder how many more of your posts will be removed like last time should you decide to debate with me again since last time you kept leaving very aggressive and bigoted messages.
