The slightly stocky American actor Angus T. Jones began his career as a child star, before the age of ten, in the early 2000s. Best known as the "half" in the blockbuster sitcom Two and a Half Men (2003) -- a role this pint-sized tyro tackled admirably alongside Gen-X screen heavies Charlie Sheen and Jon Cryer -- Jones also appeared in a number of Hollywood features. He played James in the poorly received animal picture See Spot Run (2001), Hunter in the outstanding Disney baseball melodrama The Rookie (2002), and George Junior in George of the Jungle 2 (2003).
