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.

In the words of the late Whitney Houston "crack is wack" I will gladly trade my job for his. So people don't realize how good they got it!

I feel sorry for him. He is only 19, and obviously looking for some type of meaning in his life. His parents divorced a few years ago, he worked with a drug/porn addict, (not exactly a healthy environment for a kid, is it?) he seems lost and like many child actors, is looking for some type of direction and normalcy. It's sad that he found comfort in this extreme religious group.

If his first step is towards the door it's pretty much how long will the show last in 2013? Considering with two long time actors off the show. And why hasn't Angust left longago if he was feeling this way? I'm sure the show realizes if he goes next the same with the show "Bye bye Two and a Half Men"

He started this show as a young kid. He probably didn't understand a lot of the content then. Big deal, he grew up and is learning what is "acceptable" in "his" life.

It's understandable to trash a show.. But not one that literally you grew up making money poor choice in doing what your doing... A simple I'm out of here thanks for the opportunity and wait for somethig else to come up an act like a professional not some d.o.u.c.h.

Oh my! What was he thinking? Not that I disagree with his analysis; however, there are some things better not said especially when it concerns how you eat. I guess Jake's character will die in the military and Angus will be working at McDonald's. Why do some people destroy their own success?

This guy is offically off his Rocker! What is the point of doing this? You have made tons of $ off of this show, if it is truly your belief then quit, pay the lawsuit and be on your merry way. If not then hush, know your roll and play it until your contract is up!

I bet his contract has almost ended, and they didn't want to renew it....so he's deciding to bash the show as payback for not handing him more free money.
