....LOS ANGELES (AP) — Peter O'Toole is retiring from show business, saying he no longer has the heart for it and that it's time to "chuck in the sponge."
O'Toole, who turns 80 on Aug. 2, said in a statement Tuesday that his career on stage and screen fulfilled him emotionally and financially and put him in the company of fine people.
But the eight-time Oscar nominee says the time is right to quit and that he's bidding the actor's life a dry-eyed farewell.
For 2012, he had a supporting role this year in For Greater Glory: The True Story of Cristiada (w/Andy Garcia), and he has two remaining films set for 2013: Katherine of Alexandria and Mary Mother of Christ.
