CBS head responds to Angus T. Jones situation

CBS head honcho Les Moonves has commented on the Angus T. Jones rant, saying the actor is still happy to collect his pay each week for Two and a Half Men.

The network CEO told reporters at a recent Q&A that this kind of thing happens to child actors ever now and then.

“I don’t know what our status is with him,” Moonves said. “We took this boy, who started with us when he was eight years old, and it seems to be what happens with child stars over the course of time. He is now making over $300,000 per week, which is not a bad salary for a 19 year old kid.

“By the way, he’s still collecting his $300,000 per week.”

Moonves says the issue with Jones was small time compared to what happened with Charlie Sheen.

“After going through what we went through with Charlie Sheen, it’s been a piece of cake,” he said.
