Angus T. Jones is "grateful for the extraordinary opportunity" to star in Two And A Half Men.
The 19-year-old actor - who recently filmed a video urging people not to watch the show because it goes against his religious beliefs - released a statement to apologise to the cast and crew if he offended them.
"I have been the subject of much discussion, speculation and commentary over the past 24 hours. While I cannot address everything that has been said or right every misstatement or misunderstanding, there is one thing I want to make clear. Without qualification, I am grateful to and have the highest regard and respect for all of the wonderful people on Two and Half Men with whom I have worked and over the past ten years who have become an extension of my family. Chuck Lorre, Peter Roth and many others at Warner Bros. and CBS are responsible for what has been one of the most significant experiences in my life to date. I thank them for the opportunity they have given and continue to give me and the help and guidance I have and expect to continue to receive from them.
Office creator Ricky Gervais is to play God. The comic star is working with Dexter producer Clyde Phillips on new TV show Afterlife, in which he will play the Almighty, however, his interpretation of the all-powerful being will not be the usual benevolent creator of the human race.
"Anyway, I play God. (My version will be) an arrogant, wisecracking son of a bitch, who thinks he's the best thing since sliced bread. Actually he thinks he's the best thing ever because, well, he is. He also loves welcoming atheists to heaven with a smug grin on his face," Gervais said of his character.
Gervais also insists the show is not an "atheist comedy," and has warned potential viewers not to expect a "twisted bloodlusty anti-religious fest" just because of Phillips' work on Dexter, which follows the double-life of serial killer Dexter Morgan.
"We've come up with this show because we think it will be fun, different and entertaining. Not to undermine the moral fabric of America," he explained.
Tuesday night’s “Grilled Cheesus” episode of Glee delivered up the usual laughs, gave us plenty of new Sue Sylvester quotations to bat around and filled millions of households with beautiful singing—but the show went a little deeper than its usual quips, jokes and jaw-dropping solos.
“Grilled Cheesus” tackled some truly heady subject matter: life, death and spirituality. It’s a lot to take in on a Tuesday.
In-between funny one-liners from Heather Morris as Brittany S. Pearce (“I got dropped one whole letter grade because I wrote it in crayon”) and lots of amusement at poor Finn’s expense, Glee explored different world religions - albeit shallowly. But what do you expect from an hour-long show that’s peppered with no less than seven different musical numbers? Keep reading to get the full recap - but only if you’ve seen the episode already!
Comedy Central’s new animated series is still little more than a twinkle in the eye of the cable network. So far, there is no film on the series and nothing has officially started, but even so a religion-based coalition is doing absolutely everything in their power to put it to a stop. It’s sort of like trying to halt production on a car that’s still being debated on the drawing board.
The cable network made waves when it announced upcoming plans for an animated series starring Jesus Christ (son of God, water into wine, that one), but now the disturbance has turned into a typhoon of conservative proportions.
The presidents of the Media Research Center, Family Research Council, Catholic League and Television Council have helped to form the Coalition Against Religious Bigotry. Also in the fight: reps from the American Alliance of Jews and Christians and a talk radio host. Their first target: a tiny little animated comedy series which doesn’t even exist yet.
Anyone else get the feeling that maybe the Coalition Against Religious Bigotry has bigger fish to fry? (Pun intended).
