‘Two and a Half Men’ star Angus T. Jones spotted for the first time in nearly a year
From a half to a whole man!
Child star Angus T. Jones has been spotted twice recently, after not being photographed for nearly a year. Jones showcased a much more mature look than how most fans remember him as Jake Harper on the sitcom “Two and a Half Men.”
The former actor sported a well-groomed beard and wore a backwards baseball cap and casual clothes.
Jones, 29, has kept a relatively low profile since announcing his departure from Hollywood, a decision he made while still starring on the hit show.

Just a month ago, Jones was spotted walking barefoot outside his Los Angeles home, sporting a much shaggy beard.
Jones was just 9 years old when he began his career on the sitcom directed by Jon Cryer and Charlie Sheen, and he quickly became one of the highest-paid actors, according to People magazine. By age 17, he was earning $300,000 per episode.
When Jones’ teenage persona began to evolve into more adult humor, the actor took issue with his role.
“I’m on ‘Two and a Half Men,’ and I don’t want to be on it,” Jones said in a video that went viral in 2012. Speaking to Seventh-day Adventist filmmaker Christopher Hudson, the actor said implored: “Please stop watching it. Please stop filling your head with filth. People say it’s just entertainment. Research the effects of television on your brain and I promise you’ll have a decision to make about… what you watch on TV That’s bad news.

“A lot of people don’t like to think about how deceptive the enemy is,” he added. “There’s no game when it comes to eternity…People will see us and say, ‘I can be a Christian and be on a show like ‘Two and a Half Men’. You can’t. You can’t be a real God-fearing person and be on a TV show like that. I know I can’t.
In a statement given to The Hollywood Reporter, the young actor would later return to his remarks: “I apologize if my remarks reflect my indifference and my lack of respect towards my colleagues and a lack of appreciation of the extraordinary opportunity whose I was blessed…I never wanted that.”
“Without reservations, I am grateful and have the highest regard and respect for all the wonderful people at ‘Two and Half Men’ that I have worked with and who over the past 10 years have become an extension of my family,” he said. noted.

Jones’ departure came just a year after Sheen was fired for making disparaging remarks about series creator Chuck Lorre.
It was recently reported that Sheen and Lorre will reunite in Max’s upcoming ‘How to Be a Bookie’ program.
