I thought that when I saw this article on Yahoo that when Jake said Two and a Half Men was "filth" was because the show has sucked since Sheen was fired.
Seems a bit odd that he took this route. I don't blame anyone for being religious but this seems a bit extreme to me.
From Yahoo! TV: Angus T. Jones called his series
I mean I don't blame him that show is awful.

It's not because it's awful that he is saying it though. He is saying it because the show is "filth" morally. Seems hypocritical that he still has no problem taking the 300k to 350k they pay him per episode. I guess your morality only goes so far.

Here it is for those that don't want to click the link though:
"Jake from 'Two and a Half Men' means nothing," Jones says in a video interview with Chris "The Forerunner" Hudson, who leads a Seventh day Adventist-leaning video series. "If you watch 'Two and a Half Men,' please stop watching 'Two and a Half Men.' I don't want to be on it. Please stop watching it. Please stop filling your head with filth. Please."
Jones also talks in the video about how TV, and apparently "Two and a Half Men" specifically, does the work of the devil.
"A lot of people don't like to think about how deceptive the enemy is," Jones says. "He's been doing this for a lot longer than any of us have been around. There's no playing around when it comes to eternity."
So why, you wonder, is Jones still appearing on a show he so clearly detests and is publicly trashing?
"It's very weird being on a television show, especially now that I'm trying to walk with God, because my television show has nothing to do with God and doesn't want anything to do with God," Jones said during a Seventh-day Adventist Church workshop on his birthday in October (as reported at Vulture.com). He said that he had considered not continuing his role, but "it's a strange position that I'm put in … I'm under contract for another year, so it's not too much of a decision on my part. … I know God has me there for a reason for another year."
In the workshop testimony, Jones also talks about his parents' divorce, his drug use, and the fact that he's still a virgin.
CBS declined to comment on Jones's interview. A representative for Jones, who is reportedly paid between $300,000 and $350,000 per episode for "Two and a Half Men," has not responded to Yahoo! TV's request for comment.
Jones, along with co-stars Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer, signed a one-year deal to continue the 10th, and current, season of "Two and a Half Men," in which his character has graduated from high school and joined the Army. The sitcom remains a top 10 ratings hit for CBS.
On Twitter, reaction to Jones's video vacillated between comments on Jones's actions and his religious beliefs and, of course, blaming Charlie Sheen, the man who played Jones's on-screen uncle for eight -- well, seven and a half -- seasons before a public meltdown (which included publicly making disparaging comments about the series) ended with his getting axed from the sitcom.
Hmm, and yet he still takes his $300K/episode paycheck. Once again, cash wins out over religious beliefs. I'd take him a lot more seriously if he hadn't just re-upped for another season.
He's welcome to quit. The show sucks but he's sucked longer on the show than that.
Still a virgin, eh?
Probably had something to do with his effed up religious views...
He was okay on it when he was a kid, but the older he's gotten, the shittier his character has gotten in the grand scheme of things. I would still watch it if Sheen was on the show, but I knew it was going to be horrible when he left. He made that show.
To SimplyComplex: You know that when a person starts saying that a sitcom is "the work of the devil", you're taking things just a bit to far amirite?
Agreed. It was terrible with Sheen too.
Seriously, never understood the love. Show was awful with sheen and I have to assume worse with kutcher.
Way to bite the hand that feeds you $350k per episode.
Just quit if you want nothing to do with it. You wouldn't be the first actor or actress to leave a show.

So, we've learned that actors in Hollywood can be pious religulous hypocrits. This is groundbreaking.
Yet, the general public still flocks to their movies/shows and take political voting advice from these celebrities. America is in a tail spin.
*That kid* is still a virgin...I'm shocked.
