ASHTON Kutcher wants Angus T. Jones fired from Two and a Half Men.
According to a new report, the actor was left furious when Angus, 19 — who earns a $350,000-per-episode salary — branded the show “filth” and urged fans not to watch.
Angus has begged producers not to fire him, but source say Ashton wants him gone.
“Right after Angus appeared on that video with his controversial religious guru and trashed the show, Ashton totally exploded,” said a show insider.
“He marched right in to the bosses and told them, ‘Angus is a spoiled brat — and I want him off this show!’
“The producers aren’t happy themselves, obviously, but they haven’t made a decision. And to be fair, there was absolutely no change in the show’s high ratings after Angus trashed it – and his co-workers. Plus, he keeps apologizing profusely, so execs are considering their next move carefully.
“They have a grace period right now, because the kid’s character has enrolled in the Army — meaning they could easily write around his role and keep him on part time.
“Ashton wants Angus off the show – period!” said my source.
“If it were up to him, he’d ship the kid’s character off to the military… without leave!”[imagebrowser id=5]
