The little Jake Harper from the sitcom "Two and a Half Men," is all grown up now. The 22-year-old is enjoying a hiatus away from the spotlight as a student.


When the sitcom started, Angus T. Jones was still just a young boy of 9 years old. Over the years, avid fans got to watch him grow up. He was in his 20's by the time he left the show.

For many of the sitcom fans, "Two and A Half Men" is among the favorite television shows. Charlie Sheen, Jon Cryer and the child artist Jones all won accolades for their starring roles during the show's 15-season run.

Young Jones played the adorable, trouble-making son Jake Harper of Jon Cryer's character Alan Harper. He was a regular actor from seasons 1 to 10, then scaled down to making just guest appearances in the remaining seasons.

Apart from his role in the series, he also starred in shows such as "Hannah Montana," "ER," and "CSI" and movies like "Bringing Down the House" and "George of the Jungle 2."

He continued as a recurring cast member when Ashton Kutcher joined the cast, with his character's absence being explained away by the fact that he had joined the army.

Jones made over $250,000 per episode, making him the highest paid child actor in Hollywood. In later seasons he earned over $300,000 per episode. His net worth is believed to be over $15 million now.


In 2013, Jones left the show to pursue other ventures. He made a single appearance in an episode of "Horace and Pete" in 2016.

Born in Austin, Texas, on October 8, 1993, Jones is a Seventh-day-Adventist and was baptized in 2012. His faith is believed to be part of the reason he left the popular sitcom.


At one point in 2013, he seemed critical of the show on a religious website. He later apologized for the comments, saying:

"I apologize if my remarks reflect me showing indifference to and disrespect of my colleagues and a lack of appreciation of the extraordinary opportunity of which I have been blessed."

Jones wants to continue acting, but has taken a hiatus of sorts as he is studying at the University of Colorado, where he's majoring in Jewish Studies. He has also worked in a managerial position at Tonite.

He has also since renounced religion, stating that he didn't want anything to dictate what he can and can't say or do.
