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.

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.

Hopefully he uses his money for a personal trainer, some dentistry and some plastic surgery.

Must be nice not to have to work and make millions for a show only old people watch.

i cant belive how rude and hateful some of these post are. he is just a kid. a kid who has proven to be an actor and excelled at his job. ibet these hateful people who wrote these things havent done anything good that they can be proud of and they resent him for doing what they couldnt.

So people are hating because a 17 year old kid made 3 grand for doing what he enjoys to do? Typical.

Now, all of you return to your dead-end jobs, where more than likely, your partner will leave you for one of your co-workers. Sucks to have that thought, ay?

2.5 Men is an idiotic, trite, badly-acted vehicle for overgrown delinquent a-hole Sheen. This kids "acting": being his lazy, uninspired sel, is hardly worth a paycheck. Just shows how easily amused, and how low people's standards are in general. He needs to do something constructive with his $$, ie: take acting lessons, or better yet, do something DECENT with his life here on out, rather than cling to a role he's clearly gotten too old, and unattractive, to play.

Kind of funny that people are criticizing his "lack of formal education". Isn't the idea of education to prepare you to be a productive, wage earning adult? This kid has already amassed more money than most will make in a lifetime, so I think the matter of a "traditional" high school and college education is irrelevant at this point........

AND how do people know that he is lazy and unmotivated so he isn't really acting. Do you know him personally? If so, I would love a signed photo. :)

What is wrong with you people? He works hard on the show and is a decent actor. The ones who say he should have plastic surgery are same people that will say he is vain and superficial if he did.
