'Two and a Half Men' actor not expected on set

By

NEW YORK (AP) — The teenage actor who criticized "Two and a Half Men," the CBS comedy he stars in, as "filth" will have some time before he faces the show's producers.

Angus T. Jones wasn't expected at rehearsal Tuesday because he is not going to be in the episode they are filming, according to a person close to the show who spoke on condition of anonymity because producers were not commenting publicly.

Jones wouldn't be expected back at work until after the New Year, the person said. His character has been largely absent because he has joined the Army.

Jones said in a video posted online that he doesn't want to be on the show anymore and told viewers to stop watching.

CBS and producer Warner Bros. Television have not commented.
