REMEMBER little Jake Harper from Two and a Half Men? This is him now

Rise to Fame in “Two and a Half Men” Angus T. Jones gained stardom as Jake Harper on the popular sitcom “Two and a Half Men,” becoming the highest-paid child actor with a salary of $300,000 per episode. The show was a massive hit, garnering over 15 million viewers per episode.

Angus’s Character Shift and Personal Change Over the series’ run, Jake’s character evolved into a troubled adolescent dealing with sex and drugs. In 2012, Angus underwent a significant personal change: he became a Seventh-day Adventist and was baptized. He then publicly stated, “no one should watch Two and a Half Men,” disliking how his character had evolved and the show’s impact on viewers.

Departure and Life After the Show Angus officially left the show in 2014, expressing regret for upsetting the show and its creator, Chuck Lorre. He retreated from the spotlight and moved to Colorado, where he studied religion at the University of Colorado Boulder.
