Rainn Wilson mocks Angus T. Jones' 'Two and a Half Men' rant
Just like actor Angus T. Jones, Rainn Wilson thinks his TV show is "filth" too! "The Office" star posted a new video on his Facebook page Tuesday, mocking the bizarre rant Jones made Monday against his CBS series "Two and a Half Men."
Joined by his costar Craig Robinson, Wilson, 46, says in the video, "Dwight from 'The Office' is nothing, OK? 'The Office' is nothing, all right? If you watch 'The Office,' please don't watch 'The Office.' I'm on 'The Office.' It's filth. And that filth will rot your brain."
But Wilson conveniently mentioned the show's timeslot, adding, "Take it from me, who's on 'The Office,' please don't watch it, Thursday nights at 9 on NBC. Do not watch this final season or that filth will rot your brain. Seriously."
On Monday, Jones, 19, gave a very similar testimonial for Forerunner Chronicles, a group linked to the Voice of Prophecy Seventh-Day Adventist church, posted on YouTube -- but he was serious.
"If you watch 'Two and a Half Men,' please stop watching 'Two and a Half Men,'" the young actor said during his religious testimonial. "I'm on 'Two and a Half Men,' and I don't want to be on it. Please stop watching it, and filling your head with filth."
"People say it's just entertainment. Do some research on the effects of television and your brain, and I promise you you'll have a decision to make when it comes to television, especially with what you watch," ranted Jones, who has played Jake Harper on the CBS series since its 2003 debut. "Jake from 'Two and a Half Men' means nothing."
