Angus Jones

Warner Bros. Television

Angus Jones is an actor who quit for moral reasons. He spent a decade on Two and a Half Men (above), the most popular show on TV for much of its run, playing the half-man to co-stars Charlie Sheen and Jon Cryer. In 2010, he signed a $300,000-per-episode deal that made him TV’s highest paid child star.

But in 2012, a year after Sheen left the show, Jones said in a video for a Christian group that the show was “filth” and urged fans to stop watching. He elaborated: “People say it’s just entertainment. Do some research on the effects of television and your brain, and I promise you you’ll have a decision to make when it comes to television, especially with what you watch.”

He soon left the show, and has not worked in acting since 2016.
