Angus T. Jones has had his Charlie Sheen-style meltdown moment -- telling viewers not to watch his hugely popular show, "Two and a Half Men," because it's "filth" and "inappropriate." So it was only a matter of time before a spoof hit the Web.
Enter fellow sitcom star Rainn Wilson of "The Office." The actor sits next to co-star Craig Robinson and tells viewers, "Dwight from 'The Office' is nothing, OK?" He adds, "If you watch 'The Office', please don't watch 'The Office.' I'm on 'The Office.' It's filth. And that filth will rot your brain."
The teen's remarks -- he urges fans to "do some research on the effect of television on your brain" and compares TV to Satan -- were a stunning rebuke of a show he has starred in for 10 years alongside Jon Cryer and Ashton Kutcher, who replaced Charlie Sheen after his memorable public meltdown. The young star is one of the highest-paid on television, reportedly making $300,000 an episode.
But a religious conversion seems to be at odds with the teen's profession. During an online interview, the actor told his fans to stop watching the show as part of a religious testimony he gave that went viral on YouTube. He told viewers, "I'm on 'Two and a Half Men, and I don’t want to be on it. Please stop watching it. Please stop filling your head with filth. Please."

In a statement, Jones apologized for his remarks, saying he had the highest regard for all of the people he has worked with on the comedy. He will not be appearing in the next two episodes of the show -- his character joined the Army and his screen time has been cut.
