A video of 19-year-old "Two and a Half Men" star Angus T. Jones begging viewers to stop watching now has more than 1.7 million views on YouTube. At least one of those views came from actor Rainn Wilson, best known as Dwight Schrute on the NBC comedy "The Office." And -- surprise, surprise -- Wilson has come up with a response of his own, in which he spoofs Jones's rant nearly verbatim while sitting next to his "Office" co-star Craig Robinson.

"Dwight from 'The Office' is nothing, okay? 'The Office' is nothing, alright? If you watch 'The Office,' please don't watch 'The Office.' I'm on 'The Office.' It's filth, okay? And that filth will rot your brain, right?" Wilson says in the clip, wearing Dwight Schrute's signature glasses, parted hair, and beige collared shirt and tie.

"They call it entertainment. Yeah, right. Do some research on the effects of TV on the brain and you'll see that 'The Office' -- this Thursday night on NBC, 8 central -- it just, it completely — it's the enemy. You know what it is? It's completely the enemy," he continues.

Rainn Wilson isn't the only Hollywood star to weigh in on the viral video. Former "Two and a Half Men" actor Charlie Sheen, who left the show after an infamous downward spiral in 2011, compared Jones's faith to the Heaven's Gate cult.

"With Angus's Hale-Bopp-like meltdown, it is radically clear to me that the show is cursed," Sheen told People.

Born-again Christian Stephen Baldwin had some more supportive words. "I think he knows exactly what he's doing. Again, he meant to probably have it come out differently," Baldwin told ABC News. "He didn't want to offend [show creator] Chuck Lorre or any of the people from the show or be disrespectful, but I think he authentically means what he says where he finds now if you hold up the content of his show to the Bible, what he's saying is, 'Now there's a conflict for me.'"

Jones himself echoed those sentiments in a statement released Tuesday night, wherein he apologized if his remarks had offended anyone on the "Two and a Half Men" team.

"Without qualification, I am grateful to and have the highest regard and respect for all of the wonderful people on 'Two and Half Men' with whom I have worked and over the past ten years who have become an extension of my family," Jones wrote in a statement. "Chuck Lorre, Peter Roth and many others at Warner Bros. and CBS are responsible for what has been one of the most significant experiences in my life to date. I thank them for the opportunity they have given and continue to give me and the help and guidance I have and expect to continue to receive from them."

Rainn Wilson himself isn't a stranger to the ideas of spirituality, philosophy, and art: he created the existential online discussion forum SoulPancake, which officially launched in 2010 under the slogan "Chew on life's big questions." SoulPancake, however, is not affiliated with any particular religion or organization.
