Angus T. Jones’ Mother Has a Bit to Say About Her Son and Religion and ‘Two and a Half Men’

This is what Angus‘s mom had to say, and surprisingly, it’s not in support of her son’s somewhat-ungrateful rant against the show that provided him the platform on which to spew his beliefs:

“I’m concerned he’s being exploited by the church.”

Yeah, it’s not much, but just think for a second. She’s his mother, and they don’t have a terribly bad or wholly damaged relationship that we’re aware of, so just how much can she say without really throwing her kid under the bus? Can she honestly go ahead and say something like, “This little shit’s digging his own grave with a Lorne Michaels-brand spade?” or “My son is the Second Coming, maybe”? No, she can’t, because she doesn’t strike me as a Michael-or-Dina Lohan type. She is, however, a former criminal (yes, it gets better), so there is that. Here’s the dirt on Angus’s mother, Carey Jones, courtesy of the Daily Mail:

… His mother Carey … was arrested in 1992 for ripping the meter out of a taxi and then punching a police officer in the face while she was drunk.

Then in 1997 she was arrested on a burglary charge after a woman woke to find Carey in her living room.
Jones’ father Kelly, now 50, was arrested in 1986 for possession of marijuana and carrying an unlicensed .45-caliber handgun after he created a disturbance in a bar.

In 1997 Carey had Kelly arrested on an assault charge after he allegedly pulled her out of a car and pushed her to the ground. She later dropped the charge, but Kelly was ordered to complete an anti-violence class.

Heavens.

Also, I don’t know if you guys know this, but Angus’s mentor, Christopher Jones, who was the other dude in Angus’s ‘Two and a Half Men’-shaming video, is kind of crazypants. Jones has oft mentioned that he thinks President Obama is Hitler (incarnate? Because between you and me, those two boys look nothing alike), and that Jay-Z is a “devil-worshiping Freemason.” Hudson also claims that a gas shortage (a government-imposed gas shortage, mind you) could lead you to eat your baby, so yeah. This is some serious stuff, friends. Serious, serious stuff.

And God. Are there so few normal families out there? And by “normal,” I mean “non-abusive, non-jail-serving, and non-completely dysfunctional”? I don’t think I’m hoping for a lot here, guys. This poor kid—it’s no wonder that a confused nineteen-year-old in this kind of situation has no idea what to think about anything.

It’s Cool, Angus T. Jones Still Has A Job

From TMZ:

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 $350,000 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.

How crazy is this? Because I feel like this is pretty crazy. Angus here can believe in whatever he wants to, but the hypocrisy is just … it’s a lot. I can’t even wrap my mind around how stupid it is that he’s making this much money off of this show and that he still feels comfortable to talk about how horrible it is while still involved with it. SO DUMB.

Regardless of what happens, I imagine this will be a big deal. If he shows up to the rehearsal and doesn’t quit, it will be a big deal, and if he quits, it will probably be dramatic, which will make it a big deal. If he gets fired, boom, another big deal. So just settle in, all right? It’s about to get Angus up in here.

Quotables: Angus T. Jones Apparently Has a Thing Against Being the Highest-Paid Child Star Ever

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. Please stop watching it. Please stop 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, especially with what you watch. … Watch out, just watch out… [because] a lot of people don’t like to think about how deceptive the enemy is. He’s been doing this for a lot longer than any of us have been around. So, we can’t play around. There’s no playing around when it comes to eternity.

Angus T. Jones, AKA the highest-paid child actor on television, talks about his faith and how it impacts his job and how his job impacts his faith.

In the video (the second half is below), Angus talks about how a “real” Christian would never act on a show like ‘Two and a Half Men’, and how he’s a real Christian, which I didn’t really understand all that well.

Or, I don’t know. Maybe it’s spending so much time around such shitty people (people who wreck their marriages via infidelity, drug-addicts, thieves, liars, those who keep the company of porn stars, and, of course, Miley Cyrus) that turns people to religion, who knows.
