The future of Two and a Half Men had always been in doubt following the departure of Charlie Sheen but Kutcher had somehow managed to keep the entire affair afloat.
Now it seems that although Kutcher and his co-star Jon Cryer have been signed on for the eleventh season, Angus T. Jones, who plays Jake, is reportedly not returning.
The 19-year-old star took to the internet last year to condemn the show, claiming the series was “filth” and asking viewers not to tune in.
“I’m on ‘Two and a Half Men,’ and I don’t want to be on it,” Jones told his audience. “Please stop watching it. Please stop filling your head with filth.”
Jones character Jake had joined the army during the last series, and so his role was very much reduced over the episodes.
Kutcher and Cryer have both been signed back to the show on one-year deals, with apparently a very similar salary to the last series which was somewhere in the region of 700,000 dollars.
Bring back Charlie? No? Ok, no.
