Angus T. Jones isn't the first to denounce his own television series.
Hollywood has its share of actors who have regretted accepting roles that were embarrassing, but how bad do things have to get for a star to bad-mouth a project? What about an entire television series? We saw that happen this week when Two and a Half Men star Angus T. Jones told viewers to avoid the "filth" that is the Chuck Lorre and Lee Aronsohn-created sitcom. Even though Jones became the highest paid child star in television several years ago, he wants to get out of his $350,000 an episode contract so he can "walk with God" (his statement today apologizing to the staff of Two and a Half Men didn't recant what he said about the show generally). Below, learn more about his kerfuffle with the series, as well as other TV actors who bad-mouthed their own shows.
