‘Men’ Star Angus T Jones Loses Weight During Time Off

Written by Michael Lambarde on Apr. 29, 2011

Due to the drama surrounding Charlie Sheen, Two and a Half Men has been on hiatus since January 2011, but that doesn’t mean that the cast of the hit CBS sitcom has been sitting on their hands waiting for work. Angus T Jones, 17, who plays Jake on Men, recently appeared at the Creative Coalition gala in Washington, D.C. appearing like he has lost some weight (click here to view the photos).

This doesn’t come as a surprise to us as Jones certainly has the money to do what ever he’d like to do: the 17-year-old makes an astounding quarter of a million dollars per episode. Jones was even paid a few months ago to not even work due to Sheen being fired from the comedy and production on the series being halted.

Jones has been on Men since its inception back in 2003 since he was about 9-years-old and has grown into nearly an adult since then. The fate of the series is still unknown and, if it does return, will begin filming this summer in time for a premiere later this fall. Since Sheen has been fired from the show, there have been conflicting rumors that Sheen will be returning to the series as well as other sources noting that Warner Brothers is scouting for Sheen’s replacement.
