“As we get older, there are phases of life that we enter into, and being an actor-comedian-singer-musician just isn't fun anymore,” he might have said, says a source who remained anonymous. Other reports hinted that he may branch out into other creative fields he is better at (and more interested in), though they didn't provide any details.
