I have always believed that there is only one person on this planet who could do absolutely anything he would ever want, and come through completely unscathed. That man is Keith Richards. But it seems like after everything he has been through over the past year, Charlie Sheen will become number two.
In a new interview with The New York Times, Sheen has announced that when his new show, “Anger Management” goes off the air, he will be officially retired:
“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.”
But why say that he’s ending his career right when a new chapter seems to have begun?
“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.”
Sheen does confirm, however, that unlike “Two and a Half Men”, he’s on this show for as long as audiences will have him.
So yes, America, despite everything the man has gone through, it seems like Charlie Sheen may just outlive all of us, and die an old, old man, warm in his bed, at the age of 157.
