Charlie Sheen‘s next project will likely be his last.
Sheen told the New York Times that he will retire after starring in the new FX comedy Anger Management.
The 46-year-old actor said that after the new series wraps, he wants to spend more time with his five kids.
“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,” he said.
“I’ve been doing this 30 years. And there’s a lot more out there to do than make-believe, you know?” he added. “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.”
“You’re only supposed to have one hit show, unless you’re Kelsey Grammer,” he said.
Still, his Anger Management contract with the FX network calls for the show to be renewed for another 90 episodes if the first ten shows are a hit.
Besides that, he could always reverse course about retiring. Sheen is nothing if not unpredictable.
Anger Management premieres Thursday, June 28, at 9 p.m. on FX.
