In a world where former child star actors and singers go off the rails in their behavior and faith, one is actually going in the opposite direction.

Angus T. Jones, the former “half-man” in the CBS sitcom, Two and a Half Men, has re-emerged publicly since leaving the show. Sporting a beard that the Duck Dynasty men would approve of, the 20-year-old sat down for an interview with Houston’s KHOU TV. For those who have never watched it, Two and a Half Men originally starred Charlie Sheen as a happy playboy bachelor who reluctantly opens his home to his brother (Jon Cryer) and his son Jake (Jones). After fallout with creator Chuck Lorre in 2011, Sheen was fired/quit the show and Ashton Kutcher replaced him. Then, in 2012, Jones was seen in a YouTube video where he pleaded with people to not watch the show as he described it as “filth” and “very inappropriate.” He later apologized and continued playing the role until Lorre was able to write the character out of the show.

Jones had been exploring his Christian faith and no longer was “okay” with playing the role on the hit show. “It was difficult for me to be on the show and be part of something that was making light of topics in our world where there are really problems for a lot of people,” said Jones in Sunday’s interview. “I was a paid hypocrite because I wasn’t OK with it and I was still doing it.” He admits that he could he could have handled the situation better than insulting Lorre in the process. “That’s his like baby and I just totally insulted his baby and to that degree I am apologetic but otherwise I don’t regret saying what I said.”

Today, Jones is a college man attending school in Colorado and a few weekends at World Harvest Outreach Church in Houston, a Seventh Day Adventist Church. “I really want to come into the light because I know that is where the healing is and I’ve seen God do amazing things.”

Unfortunately, not everyone is on Jones side. Within hours of airing the interview, the KHOU website (as well as many others) became littered with bitter remarks from readers who think Jones should return or give away the millions of dollars he earned while acting on the show. Perhaps they don’t realize that he started acting on the show when he was around the age of ten.
