Angus T. Jones
While Angus T. Jones may have been the "half" of a top-rated sitcom, what he lacked in stature at the time, he more than made up with his natural talent and comedic abilities. Before he hit his teen years, Jones possessed an acting resume that rivaled what many actors twice his age had accomplished. After appearing alongside seasoned stars such as David Arquette in the comedy "See Spot Run" (2001), Dennis Quaid in the drama "The Rookie" (2002), and Steve Martin in "Bringing Down the House" (2003), it was the unique family sitcom, "Two and a Half Men" (CBS, 2003-15) that made Jones one of the most recognized and highest paid child actors on television. Though a showcase for already established stars Charlie Sheen and Jon Cryer, "Two and a Half Men" presented Jones with the perfect star-making vehicle. He impressed critics with an innate ability to portray characters and express emotions well beyond his years. The success of the sitcom and Jones consistent scene-stealing established him as one of the most inspiring and successful young actors of his generation.
