The teen actor in the CBS comedy "Two and a Half Men" is now apologizing for calling the show "filth" and urging people not to watch, CBN News reports. Nineteen-year-old Angus Jones, who has played the character Jake on the sitcom since he was 10, said he'd had a spiritual awakening and no longer wanted to be on the show. "I'm on 'Two and a Half Men' and I don't want to be on it," he said in a video testimony. "Please stop watching it. Please stop filling your head with filth. ... You cannot be a true, God-fearing person and be on a television show like that. I know I can't. I'm not okay with what I'm learning, what the Bible says, and being on that television show." But in a statement Tuesday, Jones said he was sorry if his remarks "reflected indifference to and disrespect" to his colleagues and "a lack of appreciation of a great opportunity."
