It’s been a month and a half since Angus T. Jones was on the set of “Two and a Half Men,” but the young co-star is expected to return to the production next week and jump right into a storyline involving a new love interest played by Emmy winner Jaime Pressly.
Jones set the Internet on fire when he released a video online declaring: “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.”
It remains to be seen how long Jones will remain with the series, but Deadline describes the upcoming storyline with Pressly as “meaty.” The former “My Name is Earl” star will play a “cougar from the sticks of South Dakota.”
“He’s part of our show. He’s part of our family. We love him,” “Two and a Half Men” creator Chuck Lorre told Deadline at the People’s Choice Awards. “He’s 19, man. Cut him some slack.”
And Lorre went a step further than simply showing support for Jones: “I can’t really disagree with him — the show’s kind of filthy. What he said wasn’t wrong… We hope it’s funny, as well.”
