“When this TV show is over, I’m not going to look for any more. I’m not going to look for other films.

“I don’t want to do cameos. It is, oddly, that.

But he added that despite his lack of desire for big screen roles, he has no plans to retire.

“My wife keeps saying, ‘You always say you’re going to retire and then you always come up with something,'” he told THR.

“I’m really not interested in retiring. I’m not. But I would work just a little less. Maybe.”
