To quote a viral McDonald’s commercial of my youth, “Hey, it could happen.”
Word on the street is that Miley Cyrus, former guest star on ‘Two and a Half Men’, is being looked at by the show’s executives as a permanent replacement for Angus T. Jones. The other word on the street is that Angus T. Jones is being forced out of the show because he’s ungrateful, and weird, and not all that great for publicity. Go figure.
A production source told Celebuzz, “There are talks to replace Angus and the perfect person would be Miley Cyrus. The episodes that she appeared on brought in the highest ratings of the season. One possibility is that she could easily be written into the show to go to college.”
Well, duh, then. That kind of sounds like a no-brainer. I mean, she was already on the show, so it’s apparent how well-received she’d be, and it’s not like she’s got anything else going on at the moment career-wise anyway, which means it’d be a perfect fit, right? Not so fast—don’t forget, Angus issued that half-assed apology the other day, and be it hell or high water, nothing could tear Angus from his religious-based convictions (unless it had a price tag of $350k per episode or greater), so maybe Angus isn’t all that keen on leaving the show that made him who he is (professionally, of course; we won’t have any blasphemy up in here today, heck no). If sources are telling the truth, though, he might not have a choice otherwise.
What do you guys think about Miley as a potential candidate for ‘Two and a Half Men’? What the hell would they call the show then?
It’s certainly a dirty job, working on a television show and making tons of money. But you know, someone’s got to do it. And that someone might as well be Angus. Since, you know, he’s there already. Or whatever.
But yeah, he’s not quitting, according to People. He called the show “filth” and said that it was controlled by Satan, but a paycheck’s a paycheck, I guess. He isn’t scheduled to shoot until January, after the holiday break, and the word is that he’ll be there with bells on. Or probably crucifixes and vials of holy water. Because of Satan.
But then again, the source is careful to note that Angus will “honor his contract through the end of the season.” Over at TMZ, their sources say that he’ll definitely quit after this season, and that he wanted to quit last year but his reps told him that would be a dumb move. That article also mentions that Angus never thought anyone would pay attention to his video, and he feels really bad that it’s caused all these issues.
I don’t know, I think Angus is a good kid. The hypocrisy is annoying, and it’s sort of hard for me to understand how he would think that this wouldn’t affect anything about the show, but whatever. He’s 19, he’s a little misguided, maybe a little simple, and he doesn’t want to do his show anymore. Worse things have happened.
Let’s conclude this with a solid “bless his heart,” and then we’ll try to move on from this. Unless someone really dramatic happens, natch.
Yeah, Angus T. Jones, star of Two and a Half Men, begged everyone to stop watching his show. And yeah, he called it “filth,” and sure, he sort of insinuated that Satan was involved with the production. But he’s still totally grateful, ok? And you probably just misunderstood him anyway.
Here’s the statement he released about the situation:
“I have been the subject of much discussion, speculation and commentary over the past 24 hours.
While I cannot address everything that has been said or right every misstatement or misunderstanding, there is one thing I want to make clear. Without qualification, I am grateful to and have the highest regard and respect for all of the wonderful people on Two and Half Men with whom I have worked and over the past ten years who have become an extension of my family.
Chuck Lorre, Peter Roth and many others at Warner Bros. and CBS are responsible for what has been one of the most significant experiences in my life to date. I thank them for the opportunity they have given and continue to give me and the help and guidance I have and expect to continue to receive from them.
I also want all of the crew and cast on our show to know how much I personally care for them and appreciate their support, guidance and love over the years. I grew up around them and know that the time they spent with me was in many instances more than with their own families. I learned life lessons from so many of them and will never forget how much positive impact they have had on my life.
I apologize if my remarks reflect me showing indifference to and disrespect of my colleagues and a lack of appreciation of the extraordinary opportunity of which I have been blessed. I never intended that.”
See? He still thinks the show is filthy and controlled by Satan, but he’s so appreciative of it! It all makes sense now!
And, for what it’s worth, Charlie Sheen has officially thrown his two cents in by saying that it’s “radically clear to me that the show is cursed.” So there’s that.
Now can someone give Angus a hug and some life direction or something? Not Charlie Sheen, though.
