This running seventh season may be the last one for the actor who portrays Jack's cool uncle because he wants to concentrate on family.

While attending Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday, September 20, Charlie Sheen stopped for a quick word with Extra, to whom he hints a retirement. The actor said cryptically that his days as Charlie Harper on "Two and a Half Men" maybe over after his contract with the studio reaches the end.

"I got five kids, I've got amazing wife. There is life outside of show business," Sheen said on the red carpet. He added further, "It's been a great run. This is my last contract year, so maybe it's up to CBS and Warner Bros." The half-hour comedy show is airing its seventh season and thus it would be the final season for Sheen if he indeed quits.

Charlie Sheen is married to Brooke Mueller who gave birth to their twin sons last year. He also has two daughters from his failed marriage to Denise Richards and another one from girlfriend Paula Profit.

"Two and a Half Men" was one of the winners at the Emmys. Jon Cryer, who plays the other Harper brother, won Outstanding Supporting Actor in Comedy. Sheen, however, lost to Alec Baldwin from "30 Rock" in nabbing the Outstanding Lead Actor in Comedy.

Me my cousin and my brother have been watching the show for years now, and we love it. We always rounded ourselves to be characters, and I was Charlie, my brother wa\s Alan, and my cousin is usually rose. I am only 13 years old and want the show to stay on air, but still also want Charlie to keep n=his role as Charlie Harper. I hope he does what his fans want the most, because ive always watched you in movies and shows. If you leave, we will miss you Charlie.

Since Charlie Sheen is leaving Two and a half men after this season, I think the show should end after this season.

hey Charlie, theres always a way. let cbs understand that if they want to continue with you they'll have to accomodate your family. me and my 80year old mum love the show. you all are great actors. it is a special formula u all have. I am sure if you go about it the right way you will have heaps of time for your family and little time for the show. mabye do an episode per month. better than no u. cheers mate

Charlie Sheen and the cast have captured a unique side of humor close to reality in a lot of ways. Sure will miss this show if it doesn't continue. Balancing family can be really tough with x's to deal my eyes he really did look smashing on the red carpet. Loved the mauve. Judges can be so mean. They don't get the parenting thing. Hope you all can hang in there for one more year. Perhaps get some more domestic help...good luck and LOVE YOU ALL on the cast of Two and a Half Men!

Actually, Charlie Sheen portrays Jake's uncle, not Jack's. I hope this isn't the last season of Two and a Half Men. It's my favorite show on television, and I would miss it too much. I know it can't be on forever, but I was hoping for at least two or three more seasons.
