Kid, you have no idea...

First, they've already proven they can replace a character. Two lines about being hired as a video game tester in Seattle, and you're off the show forever.

Second, all that money you earned as a minor? Your parents have let you see just enough to keep you from asking questions. Dad is your manager, mom is your agent, taking their percentage, and skimming off even more. Now you've "gone crazy" with religion and they'll get an injunction to keep you away from your money. Then the lawyers start sucking your bank dry.

Hope you have a fallback plan, because telling the public to stay away from your show means you'll never be hired again.

Holy crap, I thought subby was being hyperbolic with the Satan talk. He literally said that. When I first heard about this (overheard my students in lab mention something about it), I thought he was taking a stand against being on a generic, unfunny "comedy" show. If that were the case, I would have supported him. But no, it turns out he's just a mentally unstable Christian whackjob.

Osomatic: There's a bunch of union laws about what parents can do with the money in terms of percentages that can be skimmed. They even have to set up a special "Jackie Coogan account" (that's the actual name) for most of the earnings. If he's 18, his parents shouldn't be able to touch it, injunction or no.


Under the law, only 10% has to go into the Coogan account, and that money can absolutely be accessed by shrewd parents/lawyers. There are circumstances under which it can be touched.

Trust laws also only apply in a few states - California and New York are the only ones that have any real legs, and I am pretty sure he falls under CA law, but these laws don't do as much as one might think. (Also, if the account isn't a good one -- like through the Actors' Credit Union, fees can eat up a good chunk of the money that is deposited.)

While this sounds like a Kirk Cameron situation, I beg to differ. On Growing Pains, Kirk Cameron was considered the main draw for the show by the creators, producers, and head of the network. He was the one everybody tuned in to see, and was catered to because of this fact. This made his eventual change to a stupid little fundie a bad situation because, in the eyes of everybody, it poisoned the show because he was considered one of the main reasons for the show.

Angus, on the other hand, is a child actor who has grown up to be an ugly adult. The show can and will go on without him, and it would be favored to do so as useless child actors aren't really necessary for the show to continue. He can be replaced by a cheaper and younger actor on a moment's notice and nothing about the show's formula will change drastically. If anything, it would be easier as they don't have a $350k per episode sinkhole pretending to be a 'half man.'

If anything, Angus comes off as one of those blond kids from Home Improvement: this is it for him as an actor, and the next big thing about him will be an eventual divorce or ten-year 'look where they are now' bit where he's living in a trailer park working through a succession of women who are taking their hunk of his dwindling cash for drugs. He was going to have a hard enough time working after the show, and this going to destroy whatever shell of a career he had afterward.

Also if you really want to see a downward trend please refer to Charlie Sheen. A Downward Trend I am told, is snorting cocaine off pornstar's a$$es while you haven't slept for three days. Speeding tickets does not warrant a downward trend reference.

Also, he's probably still getting some fat syndication checks. If he stashes just those away, and lives a sober and responsible Christian life, he's probably set for quite some time. Unless, of course, he starts donating it all to his church.

Xtian is a proper usage. In Greek it was pronounces Eksmes. X is the appropriate substitution for Chi which is the Greek letter for the beginning of Christ in Greek. Also X represents the labrum. It has only been modern Christianity which has bastardized this usage (much like Hitler's exploitation of the swastika). The main leader of this misinformation being Billy Graham.

FuryOfFirestorm: No big surprise here. There are 4 major routes that child stars follow:

1) Get hooked on drugs, flush career down the toilet, hit rock bottom and become an Ultra-Fundie Born Again Christian. (Kirk Cameron, Willie Ames, the kid from "James At Fifteen")

2) Get pushed into acting by stage parents, make a lot of money, stop getting work after puberty strips away the cuteness, then find out your parents spent all your earnings (Gary Coleman, Jackie Coogan, the youngest kid on "Home Improvement")

3) Fade into obscurity and end up "starring" on reality shows just for a paycheck. (Erin Moran, Emmanuel Lewis, the kid that played Screech on "Saved By The Bell")

4) Manage to transition to a successful career as an adult (Jodie Foster, Ron Howard, that kid from the last season of "Growing Pains"....Leo DiSomething...)


5) Do #1 as far as the drugs go, then do pr0n or OD/commit suicide. (Dana Plato, Anissa Jones, Jonathan Brandis, Scott Schwartz, Jaimee Foxworth)

He got paid $150 for 1 recent shoot and after Coogan deductions, taxes, and his agency fees the take home check was about $48.


And I KNOW that. (Yelling at myself, not you.) This is what I get for posting while sick. I better double-check any work I did today -- good thing I didn't send any out. Unfortunately, these accounts are only really binding in NY/CA and for NY/CA residents. Some kid working on a movie in say, CT, has no protections for the money if he/she isn't from NY or CA. I'm slightly simplifying because there are a couple of other factors, but with states offering tax incentives to lure in production companies, the protections for minors are decreased in states with little to no regulation of minors in the entertainment industry, including provisions for their wages.

PA is a state that has been doing a lot of investigation into this, thanks to that Jon and Kate show.

That same week, the kid dies in combat and Lindsey leaves him. Alan jumps into the ocean and drowns. Kathy Bates looks on from the bridge to welcome him to hell.
