Retiring From Hollywood….And No One Cares

| Filed under: Frankie Muniz

wenn1817114.jpg

One of the most beloved actors of our generation is quitting acting.

We are DEVASTATED!!!!!!!!

Former Malcom in the Middle star, Frankie Muniz is set to leave Hollywood for good.

Muniz, at 22, has decided to quit Hollywood and pursue race car driving!

Riiiight.

Muniz is heading off to Arizona soon to focus on his new career.

He's so determined, he's even put his home in West Hollywood up for sale. Asking price is $3.695 million.

Maybe he's made enough money with his TV show and tween films that he can just "retire" from acting and race?

An insider says, "He's moving to Scottsdale. He's decided to focus his energy on racing and feels that he doesn't need a home in Hollywood anymore."

As for Muniz, he won't really miss Hollywood at all, saying, "I really wouldn't mind if I never acted again. Racing is definitely my passion, this is my career now and what I definitely want to do for the rest of my life."

Let's just hope those millions he has in the bank don't get wasted away if he doesn't make any money racing.

We don't wanna see him on Celebrity Rehab in two years! Or, maybe we DO!

    DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW MUCH THIS YOUNG MAN MADE OF THAT SHOW AND IS STILL MAKING IN SYNDICATION? HE CAN RETIRE AS LONG AS HE'S INVESTED WELL WHERE HE STILL WILL HAVE MONEY COMING IN. THOSE KIDS ON THAT SHOW WERE SMART, THEY REALLY GOT INTO OWNING REAL ESTATE.

    Wow, that is really bizarre. I kept gasping as I read it. It sounds like he never even really liked acting at all?! I doubt he will retire though.. he'll go back to it when he needs more money. But for someone who has the talent to act and actually make money off of it, how could he just throw it away?
    But I'm pretty sure he has so much money in the bank he can do whatever he wants… lucky kid.

  27. AMO says – reply to this


    27

    I'm sure he'll be good at it. He's been racing for a while and he's small like most race car drivers. Best of luck! Perez, you're such a hater…

    he is seeking a rush but at least it isn't from drugs.good luck guy.

    Good for Frankie! He's pursuing a passion that doesn't surround the typical Hollywood junkett of sex, drugs and money. So what if he isn't successful — does one have to be a signed band to sing in the shower? Leave the boy alone and wish him well.

  31. nooooooooooooo says – reply to this

    IF I WERE HIM I WOULD NOT QUIT HE'LL SOONER OR LATER REGRET IT MAYBE BUT GOOD LUCK

    Re: Gia Jolie – And what kind of people run free in Hollywood?I have lived in Scottsdale for 30 years and raised 3 children. Not everyone is about plastic surgery and parties. Maybe your just a bit jealous.

    I'm sure he'll be as successful as Nick Hogan. :)

    Of course he won't miss Hollywood. He hasn't done shit in years and everything he did do was a huge pile of CRAP.

  43. Obsessed says – reply to this


    43

    He doesnt need to work but I just cant understand why he's turned into such a douchebag ..I love the show, I still watch it but he needs to stop being so defensive all the time..maybe he's not getting any work and he's bitter about it ?? otherwise this guy has a pretty good life to be so miserable or to sound like he is so miserable

  45. Quit acting??? WTF says – reply to this


    45

    Like it's a real job. "Quit acting" translates to "no job offers are coming in right now, I'm broke, so I'd better find some other way to make some cash."

    LOL! Screw off Muniz! Adios :D

    What a pathetic creature. I'm glad I never watched Moron in the Middle.

    48

    why dont u like him? Malcolm in the middle was one of the funniest programmes on tv, excellent script amazing actors, at least he can look back and be proud of his work, and go out on a high. good for him, he acted because he enjoyed it, and doesnt crave fame

  49. jengirl says – reply to this

    He's actually an accomplished driver.Of course,Perez can't bothered with something as mundane as facts.he's too bust shoving entire midgets up his wore out anus.

  52. G says – reply to this


    52

    Yeah, I saw this reported on E! months ago - old news, Perez. But why does he still have an acting gig listed as pre-production on imdb.com - Division III (2009)?

  53. Colie says – reply to this


    53

    Umm I didn't know that he got kinda hot?!?!

  54. WOW! says – reply to this


    54

    He and Nick Hogan are going to be teammates, once Nick-eroo gets out of the slam. LOLOL!!!

  55. Ericca says – reply to this


    55

    Oh Perez, you are just jealous that he has money to last him his entire life and you are whoring yourself out to anything that will pay you a penny. Enjoy your own fame for now because blogging won't last forever and neither will your weight loss.

    I love all the "he can't act" comments.. he was on what was basically a tween/teen show and the movies he was in were the same way. What kinda of caliber acting do you expect??

  60. liinah says – reply to this


    60

    he's one of the smart actors in hollywood who have invested their earnings in real estate… so he probably NEVER has to work again, even if he never won a single race. let the guy go for his dreams. you would do the same.

    63

    Quit my job to go race cars?! Where do I sign up? Sounds like a heal of a lot more fun that sitting in a trailer while some puff does your makeup so you can go talk in front of a camera.

    Good for him.

    64

    If he has any talent in racing, he won't havce to touch a dime of his own money. That's what corporate sponsers are for.

    As far as local yocal races (Phx area has 2 large race tracks), it's fairly cheap to race.

  65. Shenanigan says – reply to this


    65

    The top racing guys tend to come from Finland, and they have been racing since they were about 4 years old. This guy doesn't stand a chance.

    Shia already took away his crown… had Frankie continued in hollywood instead of taking a break after those cody banks films and got married or whatever we wouldve seen him in Transformers or Indiana Jones. Now Shia stepped up…

    NO! WE DO NOT NEED ANY MORE SNOTS IN SNOTTSDALE! Go elsewhere, PLEASE!

  72. HA HA HA RACE DRIVER!!!!!!! says – reply to this


    72

    yeah just like Jason Priestly tried you dumb jackass! he almost died and you will too. You have to grow up doing that to make a career not being an ACTOR who plays pretend till age 22. Sounds like a child "I wanna be an astronaut or a race car driver" what an ass. No more acting for you anyway freak headed midget! Celeb rehab FOR SURE. LOSER!

  73. NICK HOGAN says – reply to this


    73

    Please don't do it Fat head Frankie. Look what happened to me. I got into racing becasue I didn't have any thoughts of a real career and my dad is loaded with a big name. I stepped right into a 400+ hp Viper while everyone else worked their asses off and drove Hondas etc and I fucked up and hit the wall. Then I thought I was a pro and tried it on the street and just about killed my friend and now have to go get raped in jail! Don't do it!!!!!!!!!!!

    The interest on one million dollars is more than enough for a single, normal person to completely live off for the rest of their life. With multiple millions in real estate and other investments, plus income from a regular job, one could lead a luxury lifestyle without having to act ever again. Only idiots like Paris Hilton, who spend thousands of dollars every day on new clothes, or (c)rappers who must buy ridiculously expensive champagne and bling, require constant new sources of income.

    nooo and waht about us? what about your fans frankie!!!!!!! your racing carreer suck you haven't won any prize, i saw it on E!, your thing is acting NOT RACING, but if you want to leave your fans then go and race.
    i guess i don't have another option, so I'm going to support you ;)

    You lot are idiots. There is serious money to be made in racing, not as much as the overpaid actors in the US get, but more money than most of the people that read on here. Frankie is a good driver, and with the time to concentrate on racing will improve. He will never have a hard time getting sponsers either. GOOD ON YOU FRANKIE, do what you enjoy.

    81

    Re: Adam – There is serious money in the top ranks like Formula 1 or Indy, nascar etc.. but WHO the hell would hire him? You are an idiot. Hmmm, Dario Francitti or Frankie the actor turned driver. Better yet, a proven teen from a lower series or a 22 year old ACTOR with lots of money and time on his hands. Practice all you want, the real pros have been doing it since go karts at 5,6 years old. You obviously don't know shit and are just a big homo for Fat head frankie. If he said he was going to run the NY marathon and train hard your dumb ass would believe he could win. Plenty of rich actors, athletes and playboys have tried and failed. he will too dumbass. he's the next Jason Priestly. Frankie should enjoy his money and cars and race in the limited series etc have fun and face reality, otherwise you will see him hurt bad.

    perez i can't stand ur tone..it's so preachy. yucks. u are a blogger not jesus christ superstar. chill with the lecturing and give us the gossip. why even talk about him if u say who cares and hope he fails/doesn't fail all in the same post. u cant decide can u? this site is all over the map.the point of view is like a schtzophrenic's tea party……….grating on my brain cavity. ps dont worry about frankie muniz's financial future…u are not our economic advisor..

    This is old news, at least a year old, probably more. he has been racing for a long time. leave him alone. Leave SJP alone too.

  87. Heidi says – reply to this


    87

    Well if we look back at his racing season last year he should stick to acting. He's not a good driver, I doubt he'll make any money at racing. Doesn't he have a new ”serious” GF? Elycia something? Anyway. Hope he does good.

    Bad memory or what? Take your head of Hollywood's ass and check the Atlantic racing league stats and you will see he already raced all last year. Perez, TMZ and others already discovered this and now we are supposed to be shocked again when the gossip community already forgets that they already trashed him about it last year? ROFL
