(Newser) – Get your fill of Robert Redford now: After the two acting projects he's currently working on, he'll retire from acting, he told his grandson Dylan in an interview for the Walker Art Center. "I’m getting tired of acting. I’m an impatient person, so it’s hard for me to sit around and do take after take after take," Redford, 80, said. "I’ve got two acting projects in the works: Our Souls at Night, with Jane Fonda, a love story for older people who get a second chance in life, and Old Man with a Gun, a lighter piece with Casey Affleck and Sissy Spacek. Once they’re done then I’m going to say, 'OK, that’s goodbye to all that,' and then just focus on directing." He also said he'd like to do more painting and sketching.
