(CNSNews.com) – Angus T. Jones, who played the role of Jake on “Two and a Half Men” with actor Charlie Sheen, told CNSNews.com that he “would love” for the show to go back on the air.

“I’m looking at both sides of the coin because next year if I don’t go to the show, I get to have an actual year of school which would be a really interesting thing for me, but going back to the show would be great and I would love it so I’m okay with either,” he told CNSNews.com on the red carpet of an event sponsored by the Creative Coalition on Thursday.

CNSNews.com also asked Jones about the status of the negotiations for the show to come back to CBS.

“I don’t know. I know really as much as the media knows. No one has told me anything special so I can’t, I’m sorry I have no secret information,” he said.

Jones is the highest paid child actor on television reportedly making $300,000 per episode, or $7.8 million a year.

CBS fired actor Charlie Sheen from the show in March and no new episodes have been produced.

Sheen has since embarked on a nationwide tour. Jones said he cannot wait to see Sheen’s live show.


“I haven’t seen it yet. I can’t wait to see it,” he told CNSNews.com.

Jones was then asked when he is attending the show.

“I hope to. I don’t think there’s any LA dates, but I’ll try to make it out for one of the other ones.”
