Charlie Sheen offers Angus T. Jones of 'Two and a Half Men' spot on his show 'Anger Management'



The warlock is offering asylum to Angus T. Jones.

Actor Charlie Sheen says he's willing to give Jones a job on his new FX sitcom "Anger Management" if the 19-year-old actor leaves “Two and a Half Men” over his dismissal of the show as “filth.”

“My former nephew is welcome at the Goodson Anger Management home anytime,” Sheen told ABCNews.com.



Sheen used to play Jones' sex-crazed uncle on Angus' CBS sitcom but was fired after a drug-fueled bender and widely publicized trash-talking campaign against show creator Chuck Lorre.

The Hollywood hellion has since rebounded, playing therapist Charles Goodson in the new series loosely based on the movie of the same title.

Teen actor Angus T. Jones sharply criticized his show "Two and a Half Men" in a recent video and said he'd like to be finished with it, though he has a year left in his contract. He has since retreated from the remarks.

Sheen previously gave his opinion on Jones’ own show scandal, blaming Lorre for pushing the teen into a “Hale-Bopp-like meltdown,” according to People.com.

“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."

Jones apologized for bashing the show late Tuesday.

“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 10 years who have become an extension of my family,” he said in a release.

“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,” he said.

The video that included Jones’ “filth” remark was produced by controversial Seventh-Day Adventist Christopher Hudson, who is famous for the fiery sermons he gives in YouTube videos, in which he’s compared President Obama to Adolph Hitler and claimed Jay-Z, Kanye West and Rihanna are “in league with Lucifer.”

“I'm not an extremist,” Hudson told The News in an exclusive interview Tuesday. “I use colorful language to cement my ideas. I don't think Obama is the new Hitler. I like Obama. I was talking about some of his policies and comparing them to the policies (of Hitler).”

Hudson said he was introduced to Jones for the first time last week by a couple who belong to the church in Los Angeles and run their own ministry called the End Times Like These.

He admitted to never watching an episode of “Men,” but like Jones, branded it “filth.”

“If I was in Angus’ shoes and had his spiritual awakening, I hope I would not continue on the program,” Hudson said. “But Angus is highly intelligent. Whatever decision he makes will be between him and the maker.”

Members of Jones’ new church in Pacoima, Calif., told The News he started attending services late last spring.

“We love Angus!” church member Sherry Jenkins said. “He said someone told him we are a loving and Bible-based church, and he just showed up. I believe the angels sent him.”

She said Jones attends with his dad and younger brother.

“The family is compassionate about the community. They have donated items and their personal time to help the homeless,” Jenkins said.

She said Jones never discussed his celebrity or profession, but she could understand how his job made him “uncomfortable.”

“A lot of sitcoms today are just sinful, and Christian people can no longer sit down to watch programs with their family,” she said.
