Angus T. Jones

Silent Standoff

On 'Men'

Angus T. Jones is in showbiz limbo, because he hasn't quit "Two and a Half Men" and show execs haven't fired him after he trashed the show ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with "Men" tell TMZ ... all of the execs on the show and at Warner Bros. have seen Angus' video, in which he calls the sitcom "filth" and asks the audience to boycott. 



We've learned Angus -- who rakes in $300,000 an episode -- has not contacted any of the show honchos to express his intentions, nor have any of his reps done the same. Although Angus says in the video he doesn't want to be on the show anymore, that message has not been conveyed to show execs.

On the other side, we've learned Chuck Lorre, the brains behind the show, has not played his hand ... even to Warner Bros. executives. 

Today could be telling, because there's a scheduled rehearsal this AM. It's unclear if Angus is supposed to be there, but if he's a no-show his absence could be the first step toward the door.

He's not gonna quit. He'll blame it on his contract, but really it's dat cash.
This was just a testimonial for the cult he's joined. No one important was supposed to see it. But they released it, because that's what cults do, and the church knew that it would generate some interest and bring in some donations.

Angus, God doesn't pay your bills or provide you your ridiculously overinflated salary.

It's filth until he cashes his paycheck. And how long has he been on that show, and how much has he made in total? He's a hypocrite unless he's prepared to give all that money away.

Angus has grown up and has found his own voice. GOOD FOR HIM!! People are going to hate on him because he has hit a nerve .. exposing 2 1/2 Men for the filth that it is. He's absolutely right and I applaud him for being a man and standing for what he believes in.

The idiots here hating on Angus seem to forget that the majority of the time he has been on 2 1/2 men .. he was a CHILD. Others made the business decisions for him. NOW that he is a grown up, he is making his own decisions for the first time. STOP calling him a hypocrite. He is the exact opposite of one. It would have been hypocritical of him to stay on 2 1/2 Men now that he's an adult and a Christian. Angus knew it was the end of his big paycheck when he said 'don't watch 2 1/2 Men.' But he said it because now that he's an adult and a Christian .. he knew it was the right thing to do. Anyone who calls Angus a hypocrite is an idiot .. plain and simple.

I think this kid found an old stash of Charlie Sheen's white powder, only instead of making him entertaining, it turned him into a giant douche.

I'd like to see this moron give back every penny he's made from doing the show. Then I'll believe his new found "morals".

This punk was given an opportunity that very, very, very few get. And, now he takes a big sh!t on it. Fnck you, Angus. Give back all your money, if you're so high and mighty now. Brainwashed loser.

You sit there with your fat bank account, that you barely worked for, and spout off about your once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that you're too stupid to even realize was such a great thing. Then, you make these comments that will likely be yet another nail in the coffin for this show - not thinking about the crew members who will then be unemployed because of your idiotic remarks. What a tool.

And all he will be known as is the kid who starred in Two in a Half Men...next on the E True Hollywood Story.

If Angus hates the show why didn't he have a sit down with the suits or Chuck Lorre and let them know his wishes instead of uploading a video on the net bashing the show.

What he did was a stupid move. I guess he's following Charlie's behavior.....bash the show and Chuck Lorre will fire you. He's a coward if he went that route on purpose.

He's only on the show for a hot minute anyway so firing him is no big deal. I would give him what he wants.

So it appears that the "dummy" act wasn't an act at all. He can't believe how all he had to do was send an email and suddenly he's got an audience with a cult leader? These Jim.Jones types all know whose got the cash and how to get their hands on it. Angus isn't hypocritical, he's just a wealthy lost soul who has just been "saved" by a crook with a good line. Yup, whatever Angus decides about the show, he's just proven he's dumber than a stump. For real, this time.
