Charlie Sheen has revealed that he plans to retire from acting after he finishes his upcoming FX show Anger Management.

Based on the Adam Sandler and Jack Nicholson movie of the same name, the comedy features Sheen as an ex-baseball player overcoming past anger issues and becoming a "non-traditional" therapist.

Sheen, who came to prominence in the '80s with movies like Wall Street and Platoon, now says that he plans for Anger Management to be his "swan song".

The 46-year-old actor told the New York Times: "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.

"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… There's a lot more out there to do than make-believe, you know?"

A second season of Anger Management was recently picked up by FX. The show premieres on June 28.
