Luis GuzmanFormer “Two and a Half Men” star Angus T. Jones surprised viewers in November 2012 when he announced that he had embraced Christianity and was struggling with the starring television role he had played for nearly a decade. Now, he’s speaking out about his faith and explaining why he eventually left the comedy behind, calling himself a “paid hypocrite” for continuing to work on the show even though he wasn’t comfortable with its content. Jones, who played the character Jake Harper in the sitcom, was still an active “Two and a Half Men” cast member when he called the program “filth” and announced that he no longer wanted to be a part of it. He ended up apologizing over his comments, though he later left the cast in 2013. One year after exiting, Jones is going to school in Colorado and speaking to church audiences about his experience getting closer to God and leaving Hollywood.
