(CBS News) Charlie Sheen's next project just may be his last.

The 46-year-old actor told the New York Times his upcoming FX show, "Anger Management," will be his "swan song."

When asked about his future plans, Sheen said, "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."

When pushed further, Sheen said, "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."

"Anger Management" marks Sheen's return to television following his departure from CBS' "Two and a Half Men" last year.

The new FX series, which premieres June 28, follows Sheen's character, Charlie Goodson, a baseball player-turned-therapist specializing in anger management. His character is a stalled minor league baseball prospect whose road to the majors was sidetracked by his own struggle with anger issues.
