Angus T. Jones Returns to Two and a Half Men -- and 'Cougar' Love Interest Jaime Pressly

Two and a Half Men Casts Jaime PresslyAngus T. Jones will return to the set of Two and a Half Men this coming week for the first time since the release of a video in which he called the CBS sitcom “filth” and urged people to “stop watching.”

The 19-year-old actor will also walk into the arms of a new on-screen love interest, to be played by My Name Is Earl‘s Jaime Pressly, our sister site Deadline reports.

In a potentially recurring role, Pressly — who most recently guested on Raising Hope — will play Jake’s new, older “cougar” girlfriend, who hails from the “sticks” of South Dakota, Deadline says.

Barely 24 hours after Jones’ “filthy”-y November controversy, he issued a statement apologizing not so much for what he said but if his words indicated any “indifference to and disrespect of my colleagues [or] a lack of appreciation of the extraordinary opportunity of which I have been blessed.”

    That’s a little bit nasty. But Jaime Pressly can be funny at times. I guess it doesn’t really matter, as I haven’t watched 2.5 Men in a year and don’t plan to go back any time soon.

  2. Davo says:

    and they fired charlie? WHAT

  3. Andrew says:

    why cant they kill the kid off, on live tv. thats what every cult jesus freak wants right?

  4. Polly says:

    can we please declare this show dead and move on?

    • Jimmy says:

      Agreed, 100%. I used to love Two and a Half Men, but now… Charlie Sheen made the show, Ashton Kutcher was NOT a suitable replacement AT ALL. Now, Jon Cryer is the shining star on this show, he’s the reason I still watch it. And as far as Angus T. Jones goes, he should not be awarded with a return after what happened. It’s fine for him to have his opinions, but if they are true, why would he want to return? Oh, wait… to garner his $300,000 pay check. His apology was so bogus, they shouldn’t even allow him back. And Jamie Pressly is supposed to be his new love interest?! Dear lord.

      • Polly says:

        the only problem is that Jon Cryer’s character is stalling since season 2.
        the only breaths of fresh air, are when he’s dealing with Berta or Herb.
        so at least give us more episodes with Alan interacting with those characters if you want to still go on.

    Am I the only one thinking that maybe they are doing this weird storyline to screw with him and punish him a little for being a dick? :D I’m sure he’s very happy about it.

  6. lll says:

    What happened to miley cyrus as Jake’s love interest?

  7. Paul J Hamilton says:

    Why not have Miley Cyrus and Jaime Pressley as a couple and get rid of Angus, Jon and Ashton?

  8. Pokie says:

    He likes that “filthy” fat paycheck though!

  9. Haha says:

    I think Angus just acted as a brainwashed teenager would act and said something he regreted. They left him in the freezer for a while and waited until he was missing his “filthy” paycheck. Now they brought him back with a hot older woman to put him back on tracks, and you can see he had a really happy face at the show. Anyway, everyone deserves a second chance, and since they took Sheen out of the show, angus must had realized they could way easier take him out too.
