Angus T. Jones to Return to TWO AND A HALF MEN This WeekAfter over a month away from the show, Angus T. Jones is set to return to the Two and a Half Men stage next week.

Following his controversial religious remarks about the CBS sitcom, calling it "filth," Jones had reportedly stepped away from the series for a bit of a hiatus, not appearing in any new episodes (except via Skype - his character's in the army.) That's all about to change come Monday.

Deadline reports that Emmy-winner Jaime Pressly has also struck a deal to appear as a 'cougar' love-interest for Jones' 'Jake' in that upcoming episode. As of now, the site reports there is a chance for Pressly to land a recurring role.

At the People's Choice Awards on Wednesday night, Chuck Lorre, the executive producer of the show, confirmed to reporters that Jones would return to MEN this week, the site reports.

"He's part of our show. He's part of our family. We love him," Lorre said. "He's 19, man. Cut him some slack."

But Jones' comments weren't only water under the bridge. Lorre sort of agreed with him.

"I can't really disagree with him - the show's kind of filthy," Lorre quipped. "What he said wasn't wrong... We hope it's funny, as well."

Jones' original comments were made in an interview between him and the Forerunner Christian Church. The actor maintained that the comedy goes against his "Christian values."

In the video he says:

"If you watch Two and a Half Men, please stop watching 'Two and a Half Men.' I'm on Two and a Half Men and I don't want to be on it. Please stop watching it and filling your head with filth. People say it's just entertainment. Do some research on the effects of television and your brain, and I promise you you'll have a decision to make when it comes to television and especially with what you watch on television ... it's bad news."

"If I am doing any harm, I don't want to be here. I don't want to be contributing to the enemy's plan ... You cannot 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."
