Career

Aside from Two and a Half Men, Jones also had supporting roles in the films See Spot Run, The Rookie, Bringing Down the House, George of the Jungle 2, and The Christmas Blessing.

Jones signed a contract in 2010 guaranteeing him $7.9 million over two seasons (26 episodes), plus a $500,000 signing bonus, amounting to $300,000 per episode of Two and a Half Men, making him the highest paid child star on television, until he turned 18 in October 2011.[1][2][3]

At the annual PaleyFest held in Los Angeles in 2012, Jones admitted to not being comfortable taking on his new, more grown-up storylines on "Two and a Half Men," explaining the awkwardness behind doing the "adult thing" though not an adult. He has been with the same cast and crew since he was 8 years old. The final episode of season 9 shows Jake graduating high school and joining the army.[4]

Charity work

On June 7, 2008, Jones joined stars including Dakota Fanning, Cuba Gooding Jr., Val Kilmer, and former Bringing Down the House co-star Kimberly J. Brown, to lend their support to the First Star Organization to help abused and neglected children.[5]

In August 2008, Jones joined stars including Madeline Zima, Thom Barry and Brandon Barash at the annual "Rock 'N Roll Fantasy Camp."[6]

On October 4, 2008, Jones joined Miranda Cosgrove, Meaghan Jette Martin, Ray Liotta, Selena Gomez, and Shailene Woodley to attend the Variety's Power of Youth benefit for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.[7]

In October 2009, Two and a Half Men co-star Jon Cryer presented Jones with the award for the Rising Star of 2009 at the Big Brothers Big Sisters Rising Star Gala.[8]

Personal life

Jones is fond of collecting "quirky socks".[1]
