When Angus T. Jones went on his “Two and a Half Men” rant calling the show that he currently stars in “filth” and urging viewers to stop watching, everyone wondered what the fall out from his comments would be. Would he go the way of Charlie Sheen and be written out of the show or would they have to find a way to keep him because you can’t have “Two and a Half Men” with out the half?
At the recent TCA winter tour in Pasadena this past Saturday, CBS addressed the Jones incident saying that not only do they want to “have an 11th season” of “Two and a Half Men” but that they would very much like Jones to continue to be part of the series. CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler said:
“We’d like him to be part of it next year. I think he would like to come back, too. [Exec producer] Chuck [Lorre] would like him [back], Warner Bros. would… He made his public apology and we’ve moved on. He’s [back on set] next week.”
Tassler went on to say that she feels Jones’ age has something to do with the way he was acting, that between the ages of 19 and 24 there are things that “kids” say that they would later wish they hadn’t. She said:
“This is a happy cast. These are happy people. We had a little bit of a glitch, but… what else is new? The kid’s 19 years old. I have a 24-year-old. Between the ages of 19 and 24, there’s been plenty of things my kid has come out and said that I wish he hadn’t. But I think the bottom line is cooler heads prevailed. He’s been a beloved member of that cast for years and years and years.”
Tassler also notes that there is no deal in place at this time for Ashton Kutcher to return, but it’s highly probably that he will.
