As if this story couldn’t get any stranger, just one day after a video Angus T. Jones calling his hit show Two and a Half Men filth and begging viewers to stop watching it went viral, the young actor did an about face and issued an apology for his comments.
“Without qualification, I am grateful to and have the highest regard and respect for all the wonderful people on Two and a Half Men whom I have worked and over the past ten years who have become an extension of my family,” his statement read.
Many who work on the show were shocked by Jones behavior in past weeks. A source close to the show told PEOPLE that: “This came as a surprise to most people. This isn’t who he grew up as. He’s always been a good kid and he’s very well-liked by everyone at the show.” According to other sources, Jones plans to return to set after the holiday break to finish out his contract.
