The outing comes more than a decade since Jones left the CBS sit-com, which he first joined when he was 10. Also starring Jon Cryer and Charlie Sheen at the time of its premiere, the hugely popular show led Jones to become one of the highest-paid child actors on television by the time of his departure, according to TMZ.
In 2012, Jones announced that he had no interest in returning for Two and a Half Men's 11th season—which starred Cryer and Ashton Kutcher as Sheen's replacement—after being baptized by the Seventh-day Adventist Church of North America.
