Freddie turns to writing

Freddie Prinze Jr. says he plans to stop acting eventually to pursue a writing career.
"I'm going to stop acting in the next few years because it's just too weird," Prinze told TV Guide.

"You have to constantly be willing to live in a scary, emotional place, which is why actors are in therapy all the time."

Prinze has acted in such films as I Know What You Did Last Summer and Scooby-Doo and is now shooting the sequel to the latter opposite wife Sarah Michelle Gellar.

But in the future, he plans to turn his efforts to writing and has already written one episode of the TV series Mutant X that will air this month.

"People don't think I can construct a sentence, let alone write a script," he said.
