Charlie Sheen Announces Retirement Plans
Is Charlie Sheen Planning to retire? He just might be. Even though he has a new show on FX Anger Management, the actor spoke with The New York Times about the possibility of retirement once his new show has wrapped up.
Basically, he has no immediate plans but Charlie, who’s not known to mince words, says that retirement is definitely on his mind as Anger Management launches its debut on FX June 28th.
“When I’m done with this business it’s just going to be about soccer games and amusement parks…And when this ends, I’m done. This is my swan song,” says Sheen. It seems that Charlie, who was once a punch line for every late night television show, has got his act together and is at peace with the way things are going right now.
Charlie continues to analyze the business and the cons of being an actor for so long, saying, “I mean, I’m grateful. I’ve got a dream life as a direct result of television, you know? But at some point you just get tired of wearing somebody else’s clothes, saying somebody else’s words and working in somebody else’s space. I’m also aware of the fact that you don’t get these kinds of shots in the same lifetime. You’re only supposed to have one hit show, unless you’re Kelsey Grammer.”
Of course this is the same man who unceremoniously left (according to Sheen) Two and a Half Men, while dragging the studio down with him. Do you think he’ll be done for good after Anger Management ends?
