The Texas native made his acting debut in the 1990s, starring in television commercials for brands such as Volkswagen, Home Depot and Kraft Mac and Cheese. At the age of five, he started appearing in films and got bit by the acting bug.
In 2012, he attended the University of Colorado Boulder and took environmental studies. However, when Jones dove deeper into his religion, he changed his major to Jewish studies.
Two and a Half Men
As a child actor, Angus first starred in a handful of films before being cast in Two and A Half Men. The sitcom began airing on CBS in 2003 and he portrayed the main character’s mischievous nephew, Jake Harper.
The show was the most popular sitcom in the United States for most of its run and attracted around 15 million viewers per episode. Having starred in a well-recognized series at an early age, Angus became the highest-paid child actor in 2010.
However, in season nine of the show, his character had a more serious storyline involving drug use and sex. Angus wasn’t comfortable with this and left the series in 2012.
While pursuing his acting career, Jones spent a lot of time doing charity work, including the First Star Organization, an institution that helps neglected children.
He was also a trained musician who joined other stars at the Rock ‘n Roll Fantasy Camp in 2008. Around this time, he attended various charity events for kids. Later on, he acted as an advocate with the anti-bullying alliance Be a Star.
When he left Two and A Half Men, Angus focused on his religious beliefs and education. In 2016, he put his education on hold to become the President of a production and event company called Tonite. He co-founded the business with actor Justin Combs but left the company in late 2016.

Although the show stopped production in 2015, it still has reruns on Comedy Central and other channels globally. With this, it is also reported that Angus earns $9 to 10 million annually from royalties alone. All of this gives him a fortune of $20 million.
