"I don't think it should go on past this year," he told journalists, including the Hollywood Reporter, at this year's NATPE (National Association of Television Program Executives) conference in Miami, where TV projects are shopped to syndicators, digital outlets and overseas markets. "I just think that people are there because there's nowhere else to go. Yet."
We'll give you one guess as to where Sheen thinks people should go when they get the chance.
"We will not disappoint," the actor insisted, referring to Anger Management, the comedy he's working on for FX, which has already ordered 10 episodes, script unseen.
"At this stage of the game, to deliver a turd? It's not going to happen," Sheen promised. "It's going to be an absolute f--king rocket ship to the moon."
The rejuvenated sitcom star attributes the positive vibes to "a combination of respect, admiration and involvement that didn't exist" over at his former series.
"I don't want to harp on them," Sheen added. "Let the clueless stay clueless...I was a puppet there for ratings. But whatever, I don't care. I've moved on, and whatever they're doing there is none of my business."
A point he reiterated a few times throughout the course of the interview.
"Whatever started with [Men cocreator Chuck Lorre] rolled down to all of us," Sheen said. "I'm not saying it was s--t, but I'm not saying it was f--king gold either. But whatever, man, they're doing their thing and I'm free from their bondage."
And, if nothing else, he at least respects his replacement and former costars' "thing."
"Hats off to [Ashton Kutcher] for doing the best job that he can," Sheen noted. "I don't think that he's working with the best writing because [Lorre is] doing too many shows. He and [Jon Cryer] and [Angus T. Jones] deserve better material."
Hey, are there any openings on Anger Management? We hear it's going to be a "f--king rocket ship to the moon."
