Charlie Sheen - Charlie Sheen To Retire After 'Anger Management'?

Charlie Sheen has hinted that his new FX series 'Anger Management' will be the final time that fans see him in front of the camera. The once highest-paid actor in Hollywood says he wants to spend time with his family, though it could be a long run on his new sitcom should viewing figures meet expectations.
Speaking to Fox News about life after his new series, Sheen explained, "Thirty years in, I mean come on. There's this whole ton of stuff to do that involves my children and the rest of my life that's not about like worshipping fiction". In his new show, the controversial star plays a non-traditional therapist specializing in anger management. Sheen said the concept of helping others initially drew him to the role, saying, "He doesn't judge anybody. He's just a guy trying to get by.He's all about atonement, giving something back. He's cool and he's smart". After his infamous meltdown in 2011, the actor was fired from his job on 'Two and a Half Men' - which at the time paid him $1.4 million per episode. It appears as though he's learnt a valuable lesson since his public firing, joking, "When you get traded, come back and kick ass".
'Anger Management' premieres on the FX channel on Thursday (June 28, 2012) and although reviews have been mixed, David Hinckley of the New York Daily News wrote, "It's a big cast where every piece fits, and at least upfront, the writing and jokes are good enough that Anger Management only uses sex gags where they work, not to cover up any lack of other ideas".
