'Two and a Half Men' soothes one savage beast

November 1, 2010 |  4:08 pm


"Two and a Half Men" has a famous foreign fan: Convicted incestuous dungeon rapist Josef Fritzl, who says he watches the sitcom because Angus T. Jones, who plays Charlie Sheen's character's nephew, reminds him of his own son.

Gawker noticed Fritzl's sitcom proclivities revealed in a jailhouse interview the notorious Josef F. did with German's Bild.

"My favorite show is 'Two and a Half Men' with Charlie Sheen," he told the mag. "The little boy who plays along because he reminds me of my son. It relaxes me, I need to laugh. Because it destroys the soul, if you are always sad."

So, "Two and a Half Men" offers solace to those who are stuck in jail for life? Good to know.

Ya know.
