'Two and a Half Men' actor Angus T. Jones condemns show in Youtube video

He is known as wise-cracking teenager Jake Harper on "Two and a Half Men," but actor Angus T. Jones, who has spent more than half his life on the set of the hit sitcom, has apparently had enough.

The 19-year-old has made shocking statements in a video posted on YouTube by the Forerunner Christian Church.

"Jake from 'Two and a Half Men' means nothing, he is a non-existent character," Jones says in the video. "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."

Jones goes on to criticize the popular show calling it "filth" and saying it contradicts his devout Christian values.

"Please stop watching it, please stop filling your head with filth, please," he said.

This is not the first time the show has been publicly disparaged by one its stars. Charlie Sheen's series of bizarre Internet tirades last year and verbal attacks on producer Chuck Lorre resulted in his firing.

Jones does not say he is quitting the show, but expresses concern it may be inflicting serious damage on his audience.

"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 the television. It's bad news," he said.

Jones and the show's two other stars, Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer, reportedly signed one-year contracts last may when "Two and a Half Men" was renewed for a tenth and possibly final season.

So far, "Two and a Half Men" producer Warner Bros. Television and CBS Network have not commented on Jones remarks in the video.

This season, "Two and a Half Men" was moved from Monday to Thursday and has seen a drop in its average viewership from 20 million an episode to 14.5 million. Last year's ratings were somewhat helped by an interest in Kutcher's debut. It is the third most popular comedy on television behind CBS's "The Big Bang Theory" and ABC's "Modern Family."
