Two And A Half Men's Jones Forgiven For Rant
The teenage star of Two And A Half Men has been forgiven by his bosses at CBS for his recent outburst in which he called the comedy show "filth".
Angus T Jones is expected back at work next week after his apology was accepted, the broadcaster's entertainment president Nina Tassler said.
The 19-year-old actor made headlines in November for an online interview in which he labelled the CBS show "filth" and "very inappropriate".
"We move on," Ms Tassler said.
She suggested she had taken Jones' age into account in dealing with his rant, saying her own 24-year-old son said some things between 19 and 24 that she wished he hadn't.
"The bottom line is cooler heads prevailed," she said.
"He has been a beloved member of that cast for years and years and years and he issued a public apology.
"At the end of the day, they want him to come back, he wants to come back."
Jones plays the "half" in the popular comedy, portraying actor Jon Cryer's son.
He made his remarks in an interview with a religious organisation.
Ms Tassler said CBS and producers would like to see Two And A Half Men back for its 11th season, although no deals have been reached with the actors.
The show also stars Ashton Kutcher, who replaced Charlie Sheen after he was fired for criticising the producers in media interviews.
