LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Charlie Sheen is looking at a future without "Two and a Half Men."

According to a person close to the actor, Sheen has told friends that wants to leave the hit CBS comedy in which he's starred for seven years.

The person spoke Thursday on condition of anonymity because Sheen had made the remarks in private and had not intended them to be discussed publicly.

Sheen's desire to exit the sitcom was reported by People magazine online Thursday.

CBS had no comment, spokesman Phil Gonzales said Thursday. An after-hours call to Sheen's representatives for comment was not immediately returned.
