I've never seen Two and a Half Men. Had a vague idea it was about two men and a boy. Now that CharlieS. has gone into low Earth orbit I wondered about the boy. Would you want your child around this man? When they canceled the rest of the season I thought, for everyone's safety, it was a good thing, especially the child actor. You don't want him thinking CharlieS's behavior is, in any way, glamorous.
Tonight I ran across re-runs on another channel and clicked onto an episode. CharlieS's character is CharlieS! - no wonder he does such a good job. The episode had the boy walking into a room where CharlieS is atop a woman wearing sexy, black underwear, CharlieS talks about drug use in Bangkok and having sex with two women, the group walks in on Grandma having sex with a man she met that day. Ewwww (which brings up another subject - automatic disgust at elder people and any sexuality - wth?). All that in one week of shooting just one show.
I looked up the actor. He looks much younger than his age at the moment, 17. He has spent eight years with this show and, so far, has not gone off the rails in a Brittney/Lindsay/Christina wagon. Best of luck to him. Hollywood is very hard on kids.
