‘Two and a Half Men’ Kid Angus T. Jones Lands HUGE Deal

He may have just turned 17, but “Two and a Half Men” child actor Angus T Jones is set for life. TMZ is reporting that the actor just signed a two-year $300,000 per-episode deal with CBS. That works out to $7.8 million over the life of a contract, as well as a $500,000 signing bonus. And he could make even more. CBS has renewed the show for 48 episodes–while Jones’ contract only runs for 26. Assuming they bring him back for the final 22 episodes, the kid could be worth $14.4 million.

And they say child obesity is a problem in America. Sounds more like a payday.
