Angus T. Jones will return to the set of Two and a Half Men this coming week for the first time since the release of a video in which he called the CBS sitcom “filth” and urged people to “stop watching.”
The 19-year-old actor will also walk into the arms of a new on-screen love interest, to be played by My Name Is Earl‘s Jaime Pressly, our sister site Deadline reports.
In a potentially recurring role, Pressly — who most recently guested on Raising Hope — will play Jake’s new, older “cougar” girlfriend, who hails from the “sticks” of South Dakota, Deadline says.
Barely 24 hours after Jones’ “filthy”-y November controversy, he issued a statement apologizing not so much for what he said but if his words indicated any “indifference to and disrespect of my colleagues [or] a lack of appreciation of the extraordinary opportunity of which I have been blessed.”
