While most 16-year-olds are scrounging around for minimum wage jobs … the kid from “Two and a Half Men” just locked up a brand new contract worth $300,000 per episode … TMZ has learned.
Angus T. Jones — who plays Charlie Sheen’s nephew Jake Harper on the show — signed a 26 episode deal on May 12, 2010 … which means dude will make $7.8 mil over the next two seasons … plus a $500,000 signing bonus.
Right around the time Jones inked his deal … Charlie Sheen signed a contract worth $2 mil an episode … which translates to $52 mil over the next two seasons.
Because Jones is a minor, his contract had to be approved by an L.A. County Superior Court judge … who makes less in a year than Jones makes in a week.
By the way — today is ATJ’s 17th birthday … he should probably go buy himself something nice.
