After having to fire and replace Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men back in 2011, CBS CEO Les Moonves says the current controversy surrounding co-star Angus T. Jones is "a piece of cake" by comparison.



"We took this boy who started with us when he was eight years old, and it seems to be what happens with child stars over the course of time," Moonves said at an industry event held earlier this week and hosted by The Wall Street Journal, according to Yahoo. "He's now making over $300,000 per week, which is not a bad salary for a 19-year-old kid, and he went on a religious channel and urged people not to watch the show because it was filth. By the way, he's still collecting his $300,000 per week."



Angus T. Jones calls Two and a Half Men "filth," urges viewers to stop watching



Last month, a video surfaced online as part of a taped testimonial for the religious organization Forerunner Chronicles. In the video, Jones called Two and a Half Men "filth" and urged viewers not to watch so he would no longer have to work on the show. Jones later issued an apology, not for his statements about the show specifically, but if his comments offended any members of the show's cast and crew.



When asked whether the show was looking for a new "half man" to replace the actor, Moonves was cryptic. Jones' one-year contract ends this season. "We have other plans," Moonves said. "I don't know what our status is with him."



Thankfully, Jones already has other options lined up in case he does lose his gig on Two and a Half Men. In an interview last month, former co-star Sheen offered Jones a role on his new FX sitcom, Anger Management.
