While Charlie Sheen has been diagnosed with terminal diarrhea of the mouth, Two and a Half Men's other stars have been studiously quiet about the sitcom shutdown. To date, only Holland Taylor (who plays Charlie Harper's mom) and Marin Hinkle (who plays Alan's ex-wife) have addressed the situation publicly; both of them simply described the situation as "sad."
But wait, did 18-year-old Men costar Angus T. Jones, who plays the half-grown man of the title, Jake Harper, finally break his silence via Twitter?
Having been duped once before by what turned out to be fake Jon Cryer tweets about the Men meltdown, when the Twitter account @AngusTJones got all chatty today about the fate of Men, we double-checked with Angus T. Jones' rep. After a quick call to Angus' mom, the rep confirmed, "No, he's not on Twitter."
The duplicitious tweeter behind @AngusTJones had said, "Of course I'm upset! Who wouldn't be? Im not allowed to say what's going to happen and what the show's plans are partly because we're still figuring it out, and partly because Im not allowed because I dont have the authority to do so...For all those asking, Im not going to just lose hope and give up! I'm staying strong and holding on! =)"
There you have it, folks. @AngusTJones is not just unverified, it's definitely fake.
Are there Twitter cops we can call to shut down this sham? Sic 'em, boys!
What do you think the real Angus T. Jones thinks of Charlie Sheen's behavior?
