Angus was the first child whom the casting crew saw for the role of Jake on Two and a Half Men (2003). They liked him so much that they cast him immediately. Angus found out he had the job just as he was leaving the audition. "It was great not having to have the anticipation of a phone call," he said.
If you watch Two and a Half Men (2003), please stop watching Two and a Half Men. 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. 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.
