Not surprisingly, Angus T. Jones probably won't return to Two and a Half Men, which he recently referred to as "filth," if the show is renewed for an 11th season, sources confirm to E!. His character—the "half" referred to in the title—joined the Army at the end of season nine and hasn't been in many episodes this season anyway. It's "unlikely" he'd be back as a regular for a hypothetical 11th season, a source says, though he may do guest spots. (Both People and the Hollywood Reporter note that Jones is expected to finish out his contract for this season, assuming execs will have him.) How will he fill all his newfound free time? Former Men co-star Charlie Sheen has an idea, telling ABC News Jones is welcome on his new show, Anger Management, any time.

Sheen also referred to Jones' "filth" comments as a "Hale-Bopp-like meltdown," but didn't seem to blame Jones, noting that "the show is cursed." He also told TMZ, "I dare anyone to spend 10 years in the laugh-track that is Chuck Lorre's hive of oppression and not suffer some form of an emotional tsunami." Of course, there's the question of whether someone who thinks Two and a Half Men is "filth" would think any more highly of Sheen's sitcom. Plus, E!'s source notes, Sheen's own messy exit from Men and ensuing drama is "part of the reason Angus is so wary of the industry and so involved with the church. ... He doesn't want to end up like that. Who would?" Jones recently apologized for his comments, which his family blames on the teen's church. (More Angus Jones stories.)
