Three years ago when Miley Cyrus was pole dancing at the Teen Choice Awards, no one would have guessed she’d end up being one of the most well-adjusted child stars today. So well-adjusted, in fact, that she is supposedly being considered to Angus T. Jones, the Two And A Half Men star who has seemingly lost his marbles.
Here’s the backstory, for those of you who wisely tune out all news Men-related: Jones is a child actor on the show who apparently earns $350,000 per episode. He has also recently become a born-again Christian of the vocal, prosthletizing variety. Earlier this week, a video was released by something called the Forerunner Chronicles in which Angus T. Jones ranted about how "the enemy" (the devil) is coming to get your through your television set and no one should watch Two And A Half Men because the show is "filth."
"If you watch Two and a Half Men, please stop watching Two and a Half Men," he said. "I’m on Two and a Half Men. I don’t want to be on it. Please stop watching it. Please stop filling your head with filth."
Very quickly, Jones released a statement — obviously worded by his lawyers — apologizing the cast and crew. His mother told the UK’s Daily Mail she is afraid he’s being "exploited" by his church.
So, anyway, now Celebuzz is reporting from sources at CBS that Two And A Half Men honchos are considering replacing Jones with Miley Cyrus, who has recently guest-starred on the show.
Said the source, "When she was on set she, was pleasant and very enjoyable to work with,” they said. “She won everyone over. Now the whispers are growing louder. People involved in the show want Miley to replace Angus."
Well, that’s nice. We could also take that entire stupid program and dump in into the deep end of the ocean. That would be fine with me, too.
