The youngest actor of ‘Two and a Half Men’ has recently changed his life around for the better. He dedicated himself to the church after becoming aware that his life, which once involved drugs and speeding tickets was on a downward trend.
As a result, Jones,19, who plays ‘Jake’ on the popular comedy now feels much differently about the show he stars in.
In a YouTube video made for the California-based Forerunner Christian Church in which Jones speaks about his conversion, he says, “If you watch Two and a Half Men, please stop watching ‘Two and a Half Men.'”
“I’m on Two and a Half Men and I don’t want to be on it,” continued Jones.
“Please stop watching it and filling your head with filth. People say it’s just entertainment. Do some research on the effects of television and your brain, and I promise you you’ll have a decision to make when it comes to television and especially with what you watch on television … it’s bad news,” Jones pleaded.
It is clear that some true conviction has stirred up in the young man’s heart as he continues, “If I am doing any harm, I don’t want to be here. I don’t want to be contributing to the enemy’s plan … You cannot be a true God-fearing person and be on a television show like that. I know I can’t. I’m not OK with what I’m learning, what the bible says and being on that television show.”
Today, November, 27, Zap2It has reported that the young star was heading in to a ‘Two and a Half Men’ rehearsal this morning.
“The executives on “Two and a Half Men” and at Warner Bros. have seen Jones’s video where he calls the show “filth,” but that neither Jones nor his representatives have contacted the higher ups to announce his departure. At the same time, executive producer Chuck Lorre hasn’t responded to Jones’s comments yet either,” the Zap2It television blog also reported today.
Jones, who makes $350K an episode, has previously complained about the show calling it boring, and talking about his limited camera time. This time, Jones has made a much more serious complaint that leads viewers to believe he is thinking about quitting. Though he was heading to rehearsal this morning, it is relevant to think that his days on the show are probably numbered.
Jones likely knew what a risk he was taking for speaking out against the sitcom he is in….especially in Hollywood, which doesn’t often acknowledge the Christian faith. At this rate, it is reasonable to think that if Jones isn’t asked to leave, he will gladly exit himself. Based on his testimony, it appears that he has now learned that it is faith in God that brings happiness, not money or fame.
