Net worth and career of Angus T. Jones
Angus may not have known it then, but his life changed forever after he landed the role of Jake Harper on the sitcom Two and a Half Men. In the series, Charlie Harper, played by Charlie Sheen, plays Uncle Jake’s heavy drinker, and his father, Alan, is a divorced man who finds his way in life, but sadly never finds it.
The show immediately gained popularity as Charlie Sheen was already a famous actor. The sitcom was able to attract around 15 million viewers who watched the comedy show.
As Angus was also one of the three main characters in the series, his popularity skyrocketed along with his salary, as at 17 he was already the highest paid child actor. However, when the character played by Angus reached adolescence, Angus also had to take on roles such as marijuana use, as well as a man who had sex with many women.
He even openly mentioned how uncomfortable he felt in these adult roles. In 2012, Angus was baptized and became a different person. One of the internet videos of him went viral in which he mentioned that the show was dirty and urged fans not to watch it because he believed that people should seek the influence of television over time. As a result, Angus decided to leave the show, but returned for a cameo appearance in the series finale.
Angus has made staying on the sidelines a priority and has been trying to live a normal life since leaving the show. After leaving the show, Angus enrolled at the University of Colorado, where he continued his education and said that he was enjoying a normal life again.
Angus is fully committed to his Christian faith and has said that he cannot appear on a show like Two and a Half Men because he knew what he was doing was not going to be morally good for him.
