Charlie Sheen Says ‘Anger Management’ is His ‘Swan Song’
“When I’m done with this business it’s just going to be about soccer games and amusement parks,” the former Two and a Half Men actor told the New York Times. “And when this ends, I’m done. This is my swan song.”
“I’ve been doing this [for] 30 years. And there’s a lot more out there to do than make-believe, you know?” he explained. “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.”
After battling show creator Chuck Lorre, Sheen was fired from Men, after which actor Ashton Kutcher filled the slot to mixed reactions. Sheen, however, has no regrets.
“I was so miserable on Two and a Half… If I’m happy, I don’t want to blow [things] up. And I’ve given everybody my word here, that you make a commitment, that you’re going to take a leap of faith here, and let’s do something that’s never been done before,” he said.
Sheen will next take on Anger Management, based on the 2003 movie starring Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler. Sheen will take on Nicholson’s role of anger management counselor.
“I’m also aware of the fact that you don’t get these kinds of shots in the same lifetime,” he said. “You’re only supposed to have one hit show, unless you’re Kelsey Grammer.”
Anger Management premieres on FX on June 28 at 9 p.m.
