‘Men,’ CBS welcoming Jones back

– The teenage actor Angus T. Jones is expected back at “Two and a Half Men” next week, with CBS accepting his apology for calling the popular comedy “filth” and “very inappropriate.”

“We move on,” CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler said on Saturday. After a break for the holidays, actors on “Two and a Half Men” are about to begin rehearsals for new episodes.

Jones, 19, plays the “half” in the popular comedy, portraying actor Jon Cryer’s son.

Jones, who reportedly makes $350,000 an episode, later said he was sorry if his remarks in an interview with a religious organization showed an indifference to his colleagues or a lack of appreciation for his opportunity. He didn’t publicly change his evaluation of the comedy, which is heavy on sexual jokes and innuendo.

“The bottom line is cooler heads prevailed,” Tassler said. “At the end of the day, they want him to come back, he wants to come back.”
