VH1’s very own Halle Kiefer called it yesterday: Miley Cyrus may become Two And A Half Men‘s newest “half man.” If you believe the latest reports from our friends over at Celebuzz, that is! Television insiders are telling the site that Miley is being courted to fill Angus T. Jones’ role on the long running series after he likely departs at the end of the season.
“There are talks to replace Angus and the perfect person would be Miley Cyrus,” says the source. “The episodes that she appeared on brought in the highest ratings of the season.” Miley appeared in two episodes last month as southern firecracker Missi, the daughter of Walter’s old friend. “When she was on set she was pleasant and very enjoyable to work with. She won everyone over. Now the whispers are growing louder. People involved in the show want Miley to replace Angus.”
This all comes on the heals of Angus making a taped statement in which he made disparaging remarks against the show that has been his steady job for the past decade. He dismissed the show as “filth” and urged his fans to stop watching. He has since issued the world’s most half-hearted apology for his Sheen-esque outburst, but it’s generally accepted that he will “likely” leave the show after the 10th season wraps.
