As of right now it is unknown whether or not Angus T. Jones will stay on Two and a Half Men.  According to CBS CEO Les Moonves, maybe — or maybe not.

Moonves spoke publicly about Jones, 19, in wake of his surprising religious-fueled rant against the hit CBS sit-com — a show which Jones classified as “filth.”

“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,” Moonves stated at a breakfast hosted by the Wall Street Journal.

“He’s now making over $300,000 per week, which is not a bad salary for a 19-year-old kid and he went on a religious channel and urged people not to watch the show because it was filth. By the way, he’s still collecting his $300,000 per week,” Moonves added.

In regards to Jones’ future on the show,  Moonves said: “I don’t know what our status is with him.” But he added: “After going through what we went through with Charlie Sheen, it’s been a piece of cake.”

Angus Jones  has a year left on his contract with the popular show, but if the network decides to let him go, he may have already have his next gig lined up.

“My former nephew is welcome at the Goodson Anger Management home anytime,” Charlie Sheen told ABCNews.com last week, inviting Jones to appear on his FX series, Anger Management, in which he plays a therapist.

Sheen also said, “It is radically clear to me that the show is cursed,” and called Jones’ video testimonial against the show a “Hale-Bopp-like meltdown.”
