CBS CEO on Angus T. Jones: Situation Hasn't Been Resolved Yet

David Livingston/Getty Images(NEW YORK) - The CEO of CBS has hinted that the status of Angus T. Jones on Two and a Half Men is uncertain after the actor dismissed the show as "filth" in a now-infamous interview posted online.

According to Forbes, Les Moonves commented on Jones' remarks Tuesday at a Q&A event in New York City conducted by the managing editor of The Wall Street Journal.

Moonves said, "I don’t think it’s been quite resolved, but after going through what we went through with Charlie Sheen, it’s been a piece of cake."

Sheen was fired from Two and a Half Men last year after a series of rants in which he disparaged series creator Chuck Lorre, among others.

Moonves also said, "We took this boy who started with us when he was 8 years old.  Now’s he’s making over $300,000 per week, which is not a bad salary for a 19-year-old kid.  By the way, he’s still collecting his $300,000 per week."

There have been reports that Jones will leave Two and a Half Men after the current season.

Charlie Sheen Blames Angus T. Jones' 'Emotional Tsunami' on Chuck Lorre

ABC/RICHARD CARTWRIGHT(LOS ANGELES) -- Charlie Sheen is chalking up his former Two and a Half Men co-star Angus T. Jones' negative remarks about the CBS sitcom to what he calls the "hive of oppression" created by series creator Chuck Lorre.

Jones referred to Two and a Half Men as "filth" in a video interview posted online by Forerunner Chronicles regarding his religious awakening. 

Sheen later reacted by telling People magazine that the show is "cursed."  In a separate statement, he said Jones is welcome to join his FX comedy Anger Management.

Sheen now seems to be assigning some blame to Lorre, with whom he famously feuded with last year prior to being fired from Two and a Half Men.

Speaking with TMZ.com, Sheen said, "I dare anyone to spend 10 years in the laugh track that is Chuck Lorre's hive of oppression and not suffer some form of an emotional tsunami."

He also said, "Obviously, not having been there for some time, the Angus T. Jones that I knew and still love is not the same guy I saw on YouTube."

Jones on Tuesday issued a statement in which he apologized if his remarks were interpreted as showing "indifference to and disrespect of" his colleagues.  According to TMZ, he feels badly that he's caused such an uproar, but he will leave Two and a Half Men after the current season wraps up.

TMZ also reports that Jones wanted to quit the show after last season but was encouraged by reps and family members to stick around due to his hefty salary.  He reportedly makes $300,000 per episode.

Meanwhile, Stephen Baldwin, a devout Christian, offered the following advice to Jones on ABC's Good Morning America Wednesday: "I think he ought to walk his walk and stand up for what he believes in and finish out the season and go about his business."

Angus T. Jones Clarifies "Two and a Half" Men Comments

David Livingston/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- After calling his CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men "filth" in a video interview that quickly went viral, Angus T. Jones on Tuesday sought to clarify his comments with a statement obtained by several media outlets, including The Hollywood Reporter.

The 19-year-old, who plays Jake Harper, says, "Without qualification, I am grateful to and have the highest regard and respect for all of the wonderful people on Two and Half Men with whom I have worked and over the past ten years who have become an extension of my family."

Calling his time on the show "one of the most significant experiences in my life to date," he thanks series creator Chuck Lorre and the show's producers, and notes that the cast and crew have had a positive impact on his life.

The statement concludes, "I apologize if my remarks reflect me showing indifference to and disrespect of my colleagues and a lack of appreciation of the extraordinary opportunity of which I have been blessed. I never intended that."

Jones disparaged Two and a Half Men in a video posted online by Forerunner Chronicles in which he details his religious awakening.
