Actors typically promote their television shows to the public, as a large viewership means high ratings — not to mention continued employment. But Angus T. Jones, the 19-year-old star of sitcom Two and a Half Men, is doing the exact opposite.
In a new YouTube video, above, Jones tells viewers to “stop watching” his show, calling it “filth.” (Check out his appeal at the 7:45 mark.)
“If you watch Two and a Half Men, please stop watching Two and a Half Men. I’m on Two and a Half Men; I don’t want to be on it. Please stop watching it. Please stop filling your head with filth,” says Jones, who has been on the show since 2003. “People say, ‘It’s just entertainment.'”
“Do some research on the effects of television in your brain, and I promise you you’ll have a decision to make when it comes to … what you watch on the television. It’s bad news.”
He continues to say it’s impossible to be a Christian, while appearing on a show such as Two and a Half Men.
“You cannot be a true God-fearing person, and be on a television show like that. I know I can’t.”
Posted on a channel called The Forerunner Chronicles, the video has attracted nearly 21,000 hits since going online Monday. Described as the second part of “The Testimony of the Awakening” of Jones, it features an interview-style chat with the actor, who talks about his Christian faith.
