While we wait to see how Angus T. Jones' complaints about "Two and a Half Men" could impact production in the long run, we do know that Jones will not appear in the next two episodes.
That's according to sources close to production, who tell CNN that the CBS sitcom has two more episodes to shoot before going on holiday break. Both of the episodes were written well in advance of Jones' video confession, which whipped around the Web on Monday.
The 19-year-old actor, who's seen speaking with Christopher Hudson of the Forerunner Chronicles in the video, calls "Two and a Half Men" "filth" and repeatedly asks those listening to not watch the show.
"I'm on 'Two and a Half Men,' and I don't want to be on it," Jones said. "You can not be a true God-fearing person and be on a television show like that. I know I can't. I'm not OK with what I'm learning, what the Bible says, and being on that television show. You go all or nothing."
Jones has played Jake Harper, the son of Jon Cryer's character Alan, since 2003.
According to a statement from the Seventh-day Adventist Church, Jones joined a church in the San Fernando Valley area in June of this year, making him one of the 1.1 million North American members of the Protestant organization.
However, the Church adds in a statement issued Tuesday that the video clip that's been raking up views is not affiliated with their organization.
"Many inquiries have come to the Church regarding the Forerunner Chronicles interview," the statement says. "We are unable to offer information because Forerunner Chronicles is not a ministry operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church and its host is not a pastor of the Seventh-day Adventist Church."
The communication director for the Church, George Johnson, added that they're " happy that Angus has joined" and has "found a place in which he feels comfortable to worship and grow his faith."
Jones has also discussed his faith journey with a program called "Turning Point," which is produced by the Seventh-day Adventist Church. That interview will air on Hope Channel (DirecTV channel 368) on November 30 at 8 p.m. ET.
