Charlie Sheen is putting a lot of faith behind his new FX series, Anger Management - so much that, in an interview with the New York Times, he claims that the show is the "swan song" of his acting career, a last chance.
From the interview:
Do you have a plan for what comes after “Anger Management”? Would you like to be spending more time with your kids?
Absolutely, absolutely. 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.
Yeah, man, I’ve been doing this 30 years. And there’s a lot more out there to do than make-believe, you know? 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.
So, what do we think: Ploy to get viewers, or is he telling the truth? Sound off in the comments!
