"Two and a Half Men" may be a comedy, but it sure courts its fair share of drama.

A video of the sitcom's youngest star Angus T. Jones trashing the comedy surfaced online today, in which he calls the juggernaut CBS hit "filth."

In the 15-minute religious testimonial for Forerunner Chronicles, which was posted to YouTube, Jones directly urges viewers not to tune in, saying, "If you watch 'Two and a Half Men,' please stop watching 'Two and a Half Men.'"

In the wide-ranging interview, Jones, who plays Jake alongside Jon Cryer and Ashton Kutcher on the sitcom, goes on to say that he no longer wishes to be a part of the show.

"I'm on 'Two and a Half Men,' and I don't want to be on it. Please stop watching it, and filling your head with filth," he said. "People say it's just entertainment. Do some research on the effects of television and your brain, and I promise you you'll have a decision to make when it comes to television, especially with what you watch."

Back in October, we chatted with Jones, who expressed frustration over his character's reduced screentime this season. "My character does Skype calls. He only does one scene Skype calls and like that's one reason it was awesome having Miley [Cyrus] on the show, because they actually brought my character out of the computer and into the actual set again.

"It's easy but it's boring," he continued. 

CBS has yet to comment on Jones' remarks.
