Transcript for 'Two and a Half Men' Star Apologizes After Calling Show 'Filth'
If the history of hollywood has taught us anything, it is mamas, don't let your babies become child actors. We have seen all flavors of amoral self-destruction over the years as young talent cracks under all that attention. Tonight we have a different kind of moral rebellion on the set of "two and a half men" after angus t. Jones declared his show is unwatchable filth. Here's david wright. Reporter: A tv star denounces his own popular show and all but quits on camera. Sound familiar? I am on a drug. It is called charlie sheen. Um, it's not available. If you try it once, you will die. No, not charlie sheen this time. Now it is the half men of "two and a half men." Angus t. Jones who plays jake. I can't take all the credit. The cookie was loaded with pot. It has nothing to do with drugs or tiger blood for that matter. You cannot be a true god-fearing person and be on a television show like that. I know I can't. He's talking about god. And jones' conviction that god is not a fan of the show. If you watch "two and a half men," please to that 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. Please. Tbs and warn he brothers aren't commenting but today charlie sheen weighed in, saying with the hale-bopp like meltdown, it is radically clear to me the show is cursed. It appeared to be partly recorded in his trailer at the sitcom. We're out in l.A. Out at warner brothers studios. That man is christopher hudson. Thanks for doing this testimony with me first of all. Thanks, man, for having me. Also known as the forerunner, a reference to the biblical prophet isaiah and john the baptist. I don't have a church. Most of my ministry is online. He said that gas rationing in new york city could lead to cannibalism. Your baby might start looking like a chicken. He has accused justice mayer. She was a part of an elite pagan group. People see me and they're like, whoa! You're changed. I see this guy and I'm like, thanks, man of god. Forerunner right here. On the video, angus jones makes it clear he's a phaneuf hudson's but hudson said he has never seen "two and a half men" and was meeting jones for the first time that day. Everything that angus said came from angus. I was sitting there and if you look at the video and you see my fates, I was as genuinely, i don't want to say shocked but taken back by his boldness. Please stop filling your head with filth. Please. I don't know if angus's calling is to become a preacher. I don't know. But I think that angus should follow the leadership of the holy spirit upon his life. Others aren't so sure. First and foremost, jones' mother. She reportedly said she is concerned her son is being exploited by this church. On the video, jones suggests his recent conversion to seventh day adventism caused a rift. My family, not all of my family but some of them were like those cults. No, no, no. Today the seventh day adventists were distancing themselves, noting for the record that the forerunner chronicles is not a ministry operated by the seventh day adventist church and its host is not a pasto of the seventh day adventist church. Connie who produces and hosts an adventist tv show did her own interview with jones last october. There is a real specific reason that we've invited angus today. In it he talked about his conversion but did not trash the sitcom. I would feel badly if people thought less of him or thought because I think he is a very sincere, balanced young man. The doctor sees the video as unhealthy. A form of self-loathing. He is a former child actor himself. That's him on eight is enough. He went on to become a doctor whose patients include actors struggling with addiction. He has done so well for himself and then for years growing up on this show and all of a sudden decides to say I'm denouncing this show, please don't watch it. That seems very self-destructive to me. This is a cry for help. Absolutely. The forerunner christopher hudson doesn't buy it. He is $300,000 plus per episode. How many people wouldn't want to be in that position? When people see you ready to walk away from that kind of money they'll look at you and say you must be crazy. So the reason why people look upon his action as being the me meltdown is because they've never walked in those shoes. Anybody that is a servant of god and that is a christian does not believe he is having a meltdown. Whatever it was, he and his colleagues will have time to mull it over. He isn't due to be back on the set until after the holiday. Document angus jones issued a statement. I apologize if my remarks reflect me showing indifference to and disrespect of my colleagues. That a lack of appreciation of the extraordinary opportunity of which I have been blessed. I never intended that. The statement does not make it clear if he intends to honor the remainder of his contract and if he does want out? Well, on this particular show -- ♪ there is precedent. "Nightline" in hollywood. Thank you, david.
