Late last year, Angus T. Jones became the highest paid kid on TV after negotiating a $300,000-per-episode contract with Two And A Half Men. Then Charlie Sheen had to go and call producer Chuck Lorre an “ugly whore,” leaving the fate of the show up in the air. We’ve seen plenty of Jon Cryer since Charlie’s meltdown, but 17-year-old Angus—spotted outside Washington-Dulles Airport yesterday—has so far kept out of the fray. Maybe he wants to make sure both sides would give him another crack at that paycheck.
Even if Two And A Half Men doesn’t return, residuals from eight seasons of the international smash should leave Angus set for life. And hey! Now Angus gets to cut his hair into something more fashionable than that grody helmet enjoyed by his character Jake Harper. See pics of the child star recluse in the gallery below.
