Chelsea Clinton Gives Advice to First-Time Voter Angus T. Jones

Originally posted 08/30/2012 12:00PM

Angus T. Jones has a tough choice to make this November when he votes in his first presidential election.

Luckily the 18-year-old star of Two and a Half Men, who says he's registered as an independent, has been getting some solid advice from Chelsea Clinton – and, no, she's not pushing one candidate over the other.

"Get an I Voted sticker," Clinton told Jones Wednesday after a National Journal/Microsoft/The Atlantic panel at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla. "That's still a really exciting thing for me."

Replied the teen star: "Absolutely! They better give 'em out in L.A."

CBS Adds Dramas Starring Jonny Lee Miller and Dennis Quaid

Originally posted 05/17/2012 09:35AM



The upfront event for top-rated CBS typically has the smoothness and confidence of a long-running Broadway musical that makes other productions in the area look like dinner theater.

Wednesday afternoon's event, which included an entertaining rap-opera number by NCIS L.A. star LL Cool J and lyric soprano Danielle de Niese, was no different. CEO Les Moonves, bragging about the network's position of strength, summed up his pitch to advertisers in four syllables.

"Blah," he began, concluding, "blah, blah, blah."

The biggest news was the announcement that Two and a Half Men, having re-secured the services of wily man-child Ashton Kutcher, was being moved to Thursdays and teamed with The Big Bang Theory.

The theory is that this will defeat other networks by creating an impenetrable force field of howling sitcom laughter.

New show. New attitude. New Charlie Sheen?

"No one seems to want to remember," says the former Two and a Half Man star, now with a new FX series, Anger Management, referring to his headline-making rants of exactly a year ago, "they all talk about 'tiger blood' and 'winning' and everything. But no one talks about what I was so upset about."

Sheen, 46, directed his anger at the time against Two and a Half Men's executive producer, Chuck Lorre. The upshot was that the CBS sitcom – which once earned Sheen a record $1.25 million per episode – was recast with Ashton Kutcher.

And that's showbiz.

On Thursday, the same day the news broke that his wife of six years, Demi Moore, was filing for divorce, Ashton Kutcher proved the show must go – in this case, on the set of Two and a Half Men.

The dressed-down comedian, 33, was back to business for his debut season on the CBS comedy at the Warner Bros. studio lot in Burbank to play Walden, a recently divorced bachelor, who was written into the show when Charlie Sheen was fired from the hit series earlier this year.

The state of his marriage to Demi Moore may be a topic of national conversation, but now Ashton Kutcher's latest lip lock is causing chatter.

Monday night's episode of the sitcom Two and a Half Men had Kutcher and costar Jon Cryer kissing after Kutcher's recently divorced character, Walden, hits on a woman who looks like his ex-wife but turns out to be a lesbian.

He then plants one on Cryer's character, his BFF Alan, to save face.

Initially stunned, Alan quickly recovers and deadpans, "We're here, we're queer, get used to it."

PEOPLE's TV Critic Declares Ashton Kutcher a Surprisingly Good Man

Originally posted 09/20/2011 07:30AM

CBS's Two and a Half Men is now actually one man, played by Jon Cryer, one near-man, played by Angus T. Jones, and one manchild.

That would be Ashton Kutcher, who made his debut Monday night on the de-Sheened sitcom as Walden Schmidt. Walden is nearly the opposite of Charlie Sheen's now-dead sleaze king Charlie Harper: Sweet, unsarcastic but – here we stay true to the show's gawping bawdiness – possessed of an astounding anatomical endowment that he soon puts to use.

The instant verdict: Kutcher was not at all bad. He was quite likable.
